MS Publisher, is badly broken. The majority of the code base is a rehash
of Word - which is badly broken. Alter the font, size and spacing and
watch Publisher fall over, coughing and spluttering. Add a picture in
and hear it howl in pain.

The "best fit" option would be fun to stick in, but possibly of lower
value than other things. That said, as a plugin, it would be probably
quite simple.
