iStudio Publisher is a page layout and desktop publishing (DTP) application developed by iStudio Software.[1]

iStudio Publisher 1.0 was released on 6 January 2009 at the Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco.

The most recent version, iStudio Publisher 1.1.9, runs on Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, 10.5 Leopard, 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion and 10.9 Mavericks.


iStudio Publisher can be used for the page layout and word processing of brochures, newsletters, magazines, posters, adverts, reports, essays, greeting cards and many other document types, of any page size, and with the option of spread editing facing pages.

iStudio Publisher has been designed to simplify desktop publishing and enable users to get started quickly. Users are required to understand one main principle - each element of document content is held by a shape. All shapes act as content containers and can contain any combination of text in columns, text around their outline path, an image, a line style, a fill style, a drop shadow and a text runaround ("wraparound"). Users can select and draw standard shapes from the Shape Library, construct shapes using the drawing tools provided, or create default shapes automatically when pasting, dragging in or inserting new content. Inspectors are provided to examine and adjust style and format settings of shapes, text and images.

iStudio Publisher can export colour managed PDF files suitable for use in a prepress workflow for professional print jobs. It can also export to EPUB or RTF file. iStudio Publisher has an XML based file format and supports Unicode character encoding. However, it does not yet support complex script rendering and cannot be used for languages written with Arabic, Hebrew, Indic and East_Asian (CJK) writing systems.

The official user guide "Introduction to iStudio Publisher"[2] has been produced using iStudio Publisher and can be downloaded from the developer's website in PDF format. Video tutorials and a Rapid Start Guide are also available.

iStudio Publisher 1.0.4 received a generally favourable review by Macworld on Mar 9, 2009,.[3]
