Use the Rulers in Publisher- Tutorial

Use the Rulers in Publisher: Overview

            This lesson will show you how to use the rulers in Publisher. You can use the rulers in Publisher to assist you in making precise measurements and also placing objects into the publication pages. The rulers in a Publisher publication appear at both the top and left sides of the publication, by default.

            You can click and drag the ruler origin point, which is the gray box where the rulers intersect, from the upper left corner directly into the publication page. Doing this then lets you move the rulers right next to objects onscreen. This helps you to precisely measure and also position the objects in your publication. This also allows you to ensure the items within the publication are sized to the exact specifications you need for printing.
