Hi -- I'm as new to Publisher as I could possibly be, so please forgive the basic nature of my question. I've done some tutorials but inevitably I'm running into roadblocks.

I'm playing with a new document, and in some artistic text objects where I'm using Papryus, I can't get it to display as bold. With the few other fonts I've tried, I can just select the text and Ctrl-B (or select Bold instead of Regular) but this doesn't work (and bold isn't an option) w/ Papyrus. 

Do I need to import a new font... or some such?

Welcome to the forums.
Publisher can only use font variants – bold, italic, thin, etc. - that exist on your machine.
Most word processors can create pseudo-variants by messing around with the font glyphs – adding an on-the-fly slant to the characters to get italics, for example – but Publisher doesn’t do this as these pseudo-variants are not ‘typographically correct’.
If you need a Papyrus Bold font you will need to install it on your system.
How you would do this depends on whether you are using Windows or OS X.
You can get instructions by doing a web search for “install fonts <whichever OS you are using>” (without the quotes).
Once the font is installed, Publisher will be able to use it.
To find a Papyrus Bold font you will have to do more web searching (to get you started there are some lists of websites in the Resources section of this site).
