Must download trial of Fireworks here at home... must effect transfer of PC stuff to Mac.
How to make cue sheet: Go to IDOT road maps by city and county. Pull up PDFs. Use snapshot tool on acrobat reader to grab exactly what I need and make image thereof. Insert into Fireworks. SHrink or grow ... it's vector, it looks good regardless. Add text boxes and lines and arrows. (Coulnd't figure out how to make anything but straight black lines or dashed lines; had to make my arrows from three lines.)
Open publisher. INsert pictures. Add text boxes and make a cue sheet. Confuse north and south. Go home.
Now to try the same thing with InDesign...
