You didn't explain where you clicked to get the typing part, and what was that you were doing at the end, where you were moving lines in the ruler area? Sorry, you have to back up and explain EVERYTHING for some of us. :o)

This was very helpful -- thank you. The only things I would change is actually say every time what the cursor is clicking on to change things -- for those of us who have not used this software, it would be helpful to know even this basic info. And go a little slower -- by the speed with which he clicks around, one can tell the gentleman doing this is very familiar with it, but it can be a little fast for us newbies. :)

Thanks for the video. I am trying to use Serif after MS Publisher and much of the video was similar to Publisher but the need to fill a blank text box to cover up was a revelation.

Thank you. This was helpful and I look forward to more pages and info. However, I am rather new at this and the video was a little too fast for me. I need to see it again a few times.

This is a great series and I'm going to enjoy watching them - I haven't played with DTP since back in the days of my Amiga.

Keep it up!


Nice tutorials I look forward to seeing some more of them.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Rede
