Ventura Publisher (estimated user base of around 200,000) was recently acquired by Corel Corporation, an established leader in the desktop publishing industry and publisher of CorelDRAW, the foremost graphics program for the PC. Now Corel has taken the old Ventura Publisher, made it easier to use, more powerful, and more flexible, integrated it into the Corel family of products, and turned it into Corel Ventura 5. This is the most powerful, automated, power-packed Windows publishing software available for projects of all sizes. Corel Ventura 5: Visual QuickStart Guide is a perfect companion to this program. Like the other Visual QuickStart Guides (more than 600,000 copies currently in print), this book uses the power of pictures to lead readers through the software. This makes learning the program quick and easy. With succinct, to-the-point instructions and hundreds of illustrations, complex maneuvers are reduced to a series of easy-to-follow steps. The book is structured as a task-oriented reference, so readers can easily look up what they need to do and get straight to work. Some of the tasks readers will quickly learn include: working with the new Ventura interface; using the new Publication Manager; mastering layout issues; editing and formatting text; importing graphical elements produced in other Corel programs; and producing indexes, tables of contents, tables, and all other elements of a book.Tolman, Jann is the author of 'Corel Ventura 5 (Visual QuickStart Guide) - Jan Tolman - Paperback' with ISBN 9781566091459 and ISBN 1566091454.
