    Hi everyone.

    I have a friend who needs to do a poster for her studies.

    I don't know anyone who is experienced in this sort of thing, but I thought there are many skilled minds lurking around this forum, who might can give us advice, if possible.

    I attached a link to the .pub file and if there is anyone who can correct the colour combinations of the different columns, that would be extremely helpful. I wish i could take screenshots, but I'm afraid I can't open .pub files on my mac.

    Thank you very much!

    p.s. Please forgive me if I bump the the threat at a certain point, since I might have posted this at an inconvenient time.

    I can't offer any help, but seeing that this is primarily a Mac users forum, it'll be somewhat impossible to find someone on here that could help you, as MS Publisher is not available for the Mac Platform. Trying some MS Publisher/Office threads will do you better.

    Best of luck.

    I tend to agree with the previous post, it's primarily a Mac forum so it would be very tough to find anyone who could help with regards to Publisher OR recommend it as a pseudo-"professional" application.

    Generally speaking, I've had a few clients send me stuff from Publisher... The "colour" issues in the app are painful at best, if you're after a specific HEX then you'll probably run into a few issues...

    If it were me I'd recommend the following, it will give you a far better result that going down the Publisher route (it truly is a heinous application for the masses).

    If skill level is the issue I would recommend using Pages, it does have some very nice templates while the finished results can be rather good for the newbie users.

    Otherwise I would use Inkscape, it would be the closest thing to Illustrator without the attached costs, with that said there's a steep learning curve.

    Thank you very much everyone for your replies and suggestions.

    She already handed in her work and all was good.

    It was a really short notice request, because she became very stressed.

    Thank you again.
