I have been using publishing programs for a good 27 years, and I am disgusted that they get worse with each version. They never seem to consult anyone who actually uses them to produce materials in an office. Pub VII was a step down, and Pub X is an even bigger step down. It is so user-unfriendly that it makes me wonder about the sobriety of its writers. What I could do quickly with one step in pervious versions will now take three steps. And, by the way, I tried a different program altogether (Print Artist) and it was a disaster. This is appalling since there were programs 25 years ago that were easy to use, with plenty of clip art, and which didn't put obstacles in the way of efficieny. Microsoft, shame on you!

Pros
  • Looks Good
Cons
  • Just too hard to be efficient. Had to completely re-learn it, which after having used three previous versions was just plain stupid.
