Formatting for a Book

Your novelettes are due Tuesday!

Here's how to create a folded booklet (thanks Microsoft Word Help):

  1. When you create a booklet, it's best to start with a new, blank document so that you have better control over the placement of text, graphics, and other elements. You can add a book fold to an existing document, but you may have to reposition some elements once the book fold is in place.
  2. Start a new, blank document.
  3. On the File menu, click Page Setup, and then click the Margins tab.
  4. In the Multiple pages list, select Book fold.
    If your document is not set to landscape orientation, Microsoft Word sets it to landscape.
  5. In the Inside and Outside boxes, type or select the amount of space you want for the inside and outside margins (margin: The blank space outside the printing area on a page.).

Enjoy!

I learned how to do something that I did not know how to do in Word. I do not have word but this is good information to know.

Wooo Weeee! I have Windows Vista and Microsoft Word 2007 so figuring out the way to get the page formatted right took me a night, because the whole system is set up different. I figured it out though. Thanks for posting instructions.
