A friend who uses OO says that she has an OO equivalent of MS Publisher. She has a PC whereas I use an iMac. Can anybody enlighten me please?

OO Writer can do much layout equivalent to MS Publisher. For more detailed work, Scribus is often recommended. Since I switched from Windows and MS Office to linux ten years ago I have not needed to use Adobe Indesign or Pagemaker for layout, but my layouts (since then) have mostly been plain text book layout, with the exception of a few 32 page illustrated brochures, which OO Writer handled well. Try OO, it is free. If you don't find it suits, go back to Publisher.

In addition to RoryOF's Scribus, I would also like to recommend Publisher Plus for Mac, Pages and Swift Publisher as an alternative. Swift Publisher belongs to BeLight Software and it is a best alternative for Microsoft Publisher. However I would also recommend iStudio Publisher which is also a great alternative. You can read reviews for all these software here https://www.howali.com/2018/01/microsoft-publisher-for-mac.html

All of these software are compatible with Mac OS.
