    Assembling a graphic

    I am commissioned to prepare a new coupon for a local store; a typical example is attached.
    I know my (dear) client will want to ring changes on the content of the coupon.
    To my application-development eye, the coupon appears as a set of components, modules or building blocks; I see these modules as:

    1. <LI>$1.00 off
      <LI>Any smoothie
      <LI>tel 416-861-0400
      <LI> (the background, shade of pink)
      <LI> (the border, twiddle-twiddle)
      <LI> etc. etc. etc.
    and so on.

    I'd like to make use of software that would allow me to link and position each graphic component so that a small change to the coupon ("let's not have the 'phone number"), can be accomplished without major effort.

    I have, of course, experimented with MSPaint.exe and hence my posting here.

    You could use Microsoft Publisher or Microsoft Visio.

    PowerPoint

    Good thinking, Hans, PowerPoint might do the trick too!

    > You could use Microsoft Publisher

    (thinks) <font color=448800>"How long has this been sitting on my hard drive?"</font color=448800>
    Thanks.
    I feel stupid, although I hope that I'm not.
    I've seen the word "Publisher" whenever I'm (re)installing a version of office, but didn't ever take ten seconds to see what it was.
    Duh!
    Oh well, there goes the remainder of my week .....

    Well, you have the advantage over me.
    I don't see them.
    I load Word2000 via Word2000.bat from the Quicklaunch, and load everything else from my MRUse toolbar.
    I'm a bit of a stranger to "Start", "Programs", "whatever comes next"!
