Lesson A: Configure a New Document

In this project, we are creating a brochure (or booklet, proposal, newsletter—whatever you’d prefer to call it). This document will have front and back covers and six pages of content that will be familiar. Rather than generate styles this time, we’ll “steal” them from another document: a style guide. This is a common approach, so you should become familiar with it.

The text is written in Word and has common formatting issues we will review fixing. There are graphics for us to use as decorative elements to accompany three of the six topics discussed in the document. You will be able to choose between two backdrop images for each of the other three topics.
