Default Printing 3-Fold Brochures on Duplexed Letter Size

Hi All,

I'm trying to print a 3-fold brochure.. Can anyone tell me what
settings should be set to make this work?

The paper is letter-size, landscaped, and duplexed so that 3 pages are
on the front and 3 pages are on the back.

I've set the paper size to 3.67" wide and 11" high, but when printing,
I'm given 2, 4, 16, etc. pages per sheet, but not 3 pages per sheet.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Michele

You're going the wrong way about it. The usual way to create such a brochure
is to set up three columns per page. Most of the brochure templates you can
download from http://office.microsoft.com/templates/default.aspx? will use
text boxes, but I find those much harder to work with. For some more tips on
setting up a brochure, see
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting/UsingColumns.htm.

Hi Suzanne,

I was hoping in my dreams that you would respond to my request. Your
tips are always perfect and I am sure this one you suggested will work
like a charm as well. I've printed it and will follow the
instructions to the letter and let you know if I have any problems
with it.

I remember how happy I was with a tip you had five years ago on letter
head templates with a different second page header and footer. I had
been trying to accomplish the feat for 15 years and your tip finally
made it a reality.

Thank you so much for all your help throughout the years. You're a
genius!

Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you found the letterhead article
useful.

Note that the example given in the referenced columns article is for a
four-panel brochure on legal paper (the format of the Rotary bulletin I
produce weekly) but should be fairly easy to adapt to a three-panel brochure
on letter-sized paper.

There are advantages and disadvantages to using columns. The chief
disadvantage is that you can't have multiple columns within a column, but
the need for this would be rare (you can of course have a table). The chief
advantage is that you can wrap the text around clip art (which you can't do
in a text box). If you need a heading that spans two (but not all) of the
columns, see http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting...anColumns.htm;
that article describes using a frame, but a text box could also be used.

If any version of Publisher is available to you, you might want to think
about using it instead, as it is in some ways more suitable for this sort of
task and has many brochure templates built in.

One more tip: when you duplex the brochure, remember to change the printer
Properties setting to flip on the short edge rather than long.
