Default Mirrored Gutters in Landscape Mode, for Binding on "Long" Edge

Suzanne,

Has anyone come up with a workaround for this problem? I'm currently
facing the same issue as you discussed here in 2001.

I have an approximately 100-sheet (200-page) book in landscape mode. I
want to bind it along the "long" edge such that the user, when flipping
pages away from him, will first see page 1, then page 2 above page 3,
then page 4 above page 5, etc. So what I need is gutters at the top of
odd pages and at the bottom of even pages.

I can't make Word 2002 accomplish this. It will mirror odd/even
gutters on left/right in landscape mode, but not on top/bottom.

best regards,

Marty Jones

handling of the gutter in Word 2000 (or maybe this was one of the things I
experimented with during the 10 minutes or so that Word 2000 was installed
on my machine g).

Hi Suzanne,

I must confess that I had to locate a landscape book to grasp the full
understanding of the *real* problem. lol

Thanks for the insight Suzanne!

|

working

|

isn't

Default Mirrored Gutters in Landscape Mode, for Binding on "Long" Edge

I believe the suggestion I've made in the past was to handle this using the
"Different odd and even" setting for headers and footers. In this way you
can add extra space to your Even Page Footer and Odd Page Header.

I'll test that workaround this weekend and see how it goes. Probably
will have to jack around a little to get the spacings right and the
page numbers located the same on odd/even. Thanks!
