Default Creating Legal Ruled Paper

I would like to create a 'legal pleading paper" template.That is the
kind with a double vertical line and the left (about an inch in) and a
single vertical line at the right (about a half inch in).

Not trying to put stationers out of business, but it seems that this
should be an easy thing to do myself in Word. But I am stymied. Margins and
borders don't seem to work. There must be a trick to it.

I know someone must have done this in the past.

(I have found legal pleading paper under 'templates' on the MS free
downloads site, but (1) they contain line numbers and I don't want line
numbers and (2) I cannot set my own margins.)

Help? Thanks.

--Roy

You can edit the pleading templates you download from the MS site. The line
numbers are just a text box anchored to the header (which you can remove),
and you can set the margins to be anything you want. You can certainly
examine the template to see how the line was created. Odds are it's just a
drawing line anchored to the header. But note that it won't print all the
way from top to bottom unless you have a printer that can print full bleed.

Search Word help for "insert line"


Taylor,

Thanks, but trust me, I started there first. All that allows me to do is
insert a page border. I am not allow the two kinds of page borders I need
(one double-vertical line at the left and a single-vertical line at the
right). Further, I cannot place the line where I want it. I seem to be
limited to placing it only 23 (?) pixels from the left margin, and that is
not far enough for my purposes.

Any other thoughts? Thanks.

-Roy

31 points actually. But when I search Word for "insert line," I get "Draw a
line or connector," "Add a line," and "Format a line or connector," all of
which are relevant to your problem.

Thanks Suzanne. That was what I needed. All done. Perfect. I didn't know
that such things could be attached to headers, yet be outside of the header
'block'.
