How to Add Pages in Microsoft Publisher
Adding pages in Microsoft Publisher is a breeze. I have the old 2007 version, and the photos attached to this tutorial reflect that version. A friend recently asked how to add pages in the 2010 software version. They're very similar and you should be able to easily use these instructions for the later version as well.
Follow the photos for easy instructions!

A Few Desktop Publishing Hints
There is a way to flow text from one page to the next. If you are a beginner working with many pages, this can be an asset or a liability. If design is not your main concern, flowing the text can be a handy way to make sure no text is omitted. If design is your primary concern, practice moving photos around to break up your text, so it doesn't look boring.
Keep fonts consistent throughout the project. All body copy should be one font. Headlines can be the same font in bold or in color. Captions can be a different font, the italics version of the text font, or the same as the rest of the text. Most projects should use no more than three fonts.
Don't increase text size just to fill space. There's nothing wrong with a little white space, especially in large projects. If you just don't feel right about leaving so much space, start one story/text in the spare space, then "jump" or continue the article on another page. Don't forget to add the "Continued on page -- --" line and be sure the story gets continued.
Did I mention you should save often?
