Images available in Assets

Recommended Posts

Will there be an option to bring all the images you'll be using in a publication to Assets, as one can do in PagePlus?  That features saves a lot of time as one can just drag the image  to the page. In PP  you could just go to the folder and bring all the images into it. Thank you.

Hi musictobemade

Assets are like a clipboard that can contain many items.  Assets are normally something that you will use frequently in many publications, for example a company's name, address, telephone  number and contact details  or a logo, etc
Unlike a clipboard,  Assets are retained  i) even when you place a copy in your publication.  ii) when you close Publisher and they become available again when you re-open Publisher.

Once an Asset has been stored, you can put a copy/copies anywhere in your publication by simply dragging it from your Assets panel into your publication/s.
This means that you can store commonly used  objects such as company logo, explanatory text, etc and if you want others to be able to access them, you can embed them in your current publication.  If you pass that publication to someone else, then when they open they will be asked if they want to to import the Assets into their Asset panel.

You can create Assets using the 'bun'  top right of Assets Panel (fig one)  and Create New Category from the menu (fig2) and then add your own sub-categories as I have (fig 3)

To make your own assets, simply select an object (text frame, or image or table, whatever) and then open the menu on a category/sub category (click on it's 'bun' and choose  Add from Selection.

 An Asset remains available both in your current publication and any future publication until you Right click on it and Delete it.  Deleting an Asset does not delete any copy of it that you may have used in your document.

Hope that this has helped introduce them for you. More info in the Help document
