I'm not all that familiar with it; just had a quick look to see if I could figure something out. PowerPoint can make shapes visible or not (I couldn't find anything similar for Publisher) but PPT doesn't do text wrapping around images. People sometimes do the text wrap in Word, then copy/paste into PPT, but that strikes me as an even clumsier/workier workaround than my suggestions for Pub.

CorelDRAW can do pretty much any of this stuff. It can easily do multiple pages per file, though as a graphics/illustration program rather than true DTP, it's not the best choice for documents that require text flow from page to page.

Another trick, if you're dealing with pictures, is to insert the picture as a link, then substitute a different image for the linked image later (ie, substitute a plain blank that matches the background).
