Get it right the first time
With Publisher 2010, you can see exactly how your work will look when printed. You can adjust print settings while viewing a large print preview of your publication — no need to switch back and forth between multiple views or screens to see the impact of your changes. You can also use the new backlight feature to see "through" the paper to preview the other side of your publication, so that your page "flips" exactly as you want it.
Get things done faster
Complete tasks quickly and more efficiently with Publisher 2010. With the Ribbon now incorporated in Publisher, you can access commands more quickly and easily, and customize the Ribbon to display the commands that are most relevant to you. Microsoft Office Backstage view makes it easier to save, share, print and publish your documents with just a few clicks. In addition, new visual navigation provides a thumbnail view of each page of your publication so that you can quickly move from page to page or even drag thumbnails to reorder pages. With a streamlined document workspace, you can focus on the task at hand.
