Is there an substitute for Microsoft Publisher. I used it all the time, recently purchased the Microsoft Office Suite and after I installed it realized that Publisher Is NOT part of the package. Thanks for any suggestions.
Open office s my choice. Used it for quite sometime & have no complaints.
When I was a computer design person 15 years ago it was Adobe PageMaker and QuarkXPress. They are still around so they might be worth looking at.
I will sometimes use Open Office, which is a great alternative to Office completely.

are some alternative to Microsoft Publisher
If you look for a free layout program I will say Scribus. http://www.scribus.net/canvas/Scribus
Besides the program itself, it is also good that it can be used on Linux, BSD UNIX, GNU/Hurd, Mac OS X, OS/2 Warp 4, eComStation, Haiku and Windows desktops. You will in other word be able to work together with people with other OS, or someone will be eble to editing you file later. That's otherwise one problem with Publisher - it can only be used on Windows
Scribus -> http://www.scribus.net/canvas/Scribus
LyX -> http://www.lyx.org/
Serif PagePlus -> http://www.serif.com/pageplus/
Inkscape -> http://inkscape.org/
Serif Page Plus is an excellent and easy-to-use page layout package, with templates for brochures, cards etc, which makes it the most similar to MS Publisher (but Page Plus is much more flexible and sophisticated). There is a free "SE" version, which is limited in a number of ways, including the size of documents you can create.
A second option is Scribus, which is a free open-source layout package. It is an fully fledged product, far more sophisticated than either MS Publisher or PagePlus, but also much more difficult to learn.
There are other commercial page layout programs (e.g. Adobe InDesign), but they are expensive and not really comparable to Publisher either price-wise or in features.
The 'BEST' alternative is the program that works for you!
