I've used Deneba's Canvas to make this kind of modification to PUBLISH output
without any problems.  It's a large program, and a bit clunky sometimes, but
it's capable of doing nearly everything I need to manipluate text and QuickDraw

Disclaimer: I have no relationship to Deneba except as a user of their product,
I'm not saying this in any official or institutional capacity.
