Printing your publication can be a thrilling moment—or an absolute dud if you discover that you’ve missed something and have to go back and fix it. So before you print, take the time to use the Design Checker. After that, it’s off to the printer!
Always remember to save your final changes to the publication before printing by pressing Ctrl+S or selecting File Save.
Publisher’s Design Checker checks a publication for boo-boos such as empty text boxes and spacing errors. Running the Design Checker so that you can uncover and fix these errors saves you toner, paper, and printing time. Among the problems Design Checker looks for are text in overflow areas, disproportional pictures, empty frames, covered objects, objects partially off the page, objects in nonprinting regions, blank space at the top of the page, spacing between sentences, and (for Web sites) a page unreachable by hyperlinks.
Select Tools Design Checker to run the design check. When it finishes, results appear in the Design Checker task pane, as shown in Figure 32-21. To correct each error, click the error in the list. Publisher displays the location where the error occurs so that you can correct it.
