Hi,
I am impressed with SP3. Really easy to use. My problem is that I don't know any basics of layout (or colour etc.). The video tutorials are great about showing how to use SP3 but I'm looking for a desktop publishing 101 that can teach me not so much about how to set a margin or how to place an image, but rather why I should take care to place margins, images or text in certain places for different professional effects.

This

is not what I'm looking for as it only explains what DP is and the common terms.

Would be great to have such a tutorial or documentation that was tied to SP3 but what I'm talking about is about the do's and don't of desktop publishing in general.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

The program has Help that explains more details comparing with video tutorials. Alternatively, you can download the manual in the PDF format using this link:

Thanks Nick, this does provide some basic insight into desktop publishing and not just how to use SP3.

I'd still be interested in any general resources about mastering desktop publishing though. If you come across any please let me know.
