Copy between Publisher and other programs

Recommended Posts

I set up a publication in Publisher and copied and pasted the contents of an Indesign publication into it. I was impressed. Not only the text, but also the formatting copied across almost perfectly. 

Then I used the Publisher document as a template and created a new publication. Good, but not perfect. I think the issue was that Publisher, unlike InDesign, sets up a range of default paragraph styles, and got muddled when it tried to import an InDesign style which had the same name as one of it's own defaults. Tolerable, though a trifle irritating at midnight with a job half done.

When I produce a DTP document, I quite often have to transfer the content to a web page (incuding a Facebook Notes page). Normally I just copy and paste.

It doesn't work with Publisher. At least, not to an acceptable standard. Any lengthy text entered into Publisher is effectively unusable in any other application. This is a serious limitation.
