I've just started using Publisher (long-time Pagemaker and InDesign user).

One feature I can't seem to find which is pretty critical for some of my work is the ability to crop the frame of a linked image without resizing the image.

I.E. I have an image that would take up a full page, but I only want half of the image to be shown. In InDesign, I could just grab the side of the frame and drag it to the size required without altering the appearance of the remaining image (or I could tell it to fit the frame afterwards if I wanted it resized). Often, I can't just overlay it with a box coloured to the "paper" colour as there would be elements behind that would need to be seen, and I'd rather not have to make a copy of the image with the appropriate reshaping.

Also, Transform needs a % change option.

Otherwise, my first impressions of this program are pretty good :)

Use the Picture Frame tool and place the photo in that.
