For Desktop Publishing _ Microsoft Word is equipped with an excellent range of layout and format functions that allows the user to lay text around objects and images. Colors, borders and columns are also easily added. Even custom graphics from external files can be included in the document. There are drawing tools and functions also available with Word. In other words, you can easily customize your document in your preferred layout using its great variety of features.
Creating Envelopes _ Your letter will not be complete unless you have an envelope also formatted appropriately. What's good about this function is that you can either customize your own envelope or allow Word to come up with a matching envelope to the letter you have written using the application. What it does is it automatically copies the address and uses it to create the envelope. That helps you do away with manual typing.
