Microsoft Publisher offers many templates for you to choose from to create signs. These templates includes signs like No Trespassing, For Sale, and Beware of the Dog. There are many more signs to choose from. In this tutorial, I will walk you through the steps of creating signs in Microsoft Publisher.
Step 1 – Opening and Loading Your Microsoft Publisher Program
Your first step is to open and load your Microsoft Publisher program. Once the program loads, you should see the Publication Types panel. This panel is located on the left side of your program. In this panel, you will need to look for the Signs link and click it.
Step 2 – Selecting the Sign Template You Want to Use
Next, you will need to select the sign template that you want to use. The templates will be located in the middle panel of your program. Browse through the templates and find the one you want to use. Then click the template to select it.
Step 3 – Opening Your Sign Template in a New Window
Your next step is to open the sign template in a new window. Now that you have selected your template, you will see the template in the far right panel. You can edit certain things in that panel, but its best to open the template and do your editing from there. So, in order to open your template, you will need to click the Create button found in the bottom right corner of your Microsoft Publisher program.
Step 4 – Editing Your Text in the Sign Template
Your next step is to edit your text in the sign template. How much text you have to edit will depend on which template you chose to use. To edit text, simply highlight the text and delete it. Then type what you want in the text fields. Edit all of the text that needs editing. You can then go back and change the color, size, and style of the text. To do this, you will need to highlight the text and use the text icons at the top of the window you are in.
Step 5 – Editing or Inserting Clipart
If you need to edit or insert clipart into your sign, follow these steps. Click Insert > Picture > Clipart. The clipart box will then open and you will need to search for the clipart you are looking for or click the Go button to view all of the clipart. Once you find a clipart that you want to use, double click it. The clipart will then be inserted into your sign and you will need to move it to where you want it. You can also resize it by dragging the bottom right corner inward or outward.
Step 6 – Saving Your Sign
Now you will need to save your sign. Go to the top of your program and click File > Save. When the box opens, give your sign a name and save it to your computer. Then you can print the sign or do whatever you want with it.
