This is a Microsoft Word page formatting problem. I have pre-printed

Resolved Question:

This is a Microsoft Word page formatting problem. I have pre-printed thank you notes which folds in half. When opened I want to be able to type on the right-hand side of the page and when that page is full Microsoft Word should begin to print on the left-hand side.

I've had much difficulty trying to format this properly and Microsoft Word will change the layout from my custom layout to one of its standard formats.

I have scanned in the thank you note and can send it to you but I do not know how to attach a PDF file to this message.

Please help me.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Can you tell me what was wrong with that document? as it can help.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


The note card gets folded in half. when opened, i need to type on the right hand side of the page and when that is full, Word should go to the left hand side of the page. In other words, I need two columns.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Like this Jim?

http://ge.tt/3jmRVOi/v/0?c

Please let me know.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No, I guess I have not made myself clear. What you are looking at with the thank you sincerely XXXXX XXXXX right-hand side I would call that the front fold this page paper in half and then open it up to the blank side of the paper. I want to begin typing on the right-hand side of the page and when that is completed continue to type on the left-hand side of the page. In other words two columns with typing beginning on the right-hand column then continuing to the left-hand column.

Does this help?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, ignore the left to right when you finish typing, but is this how you want it.

http://ge.tt/5GidZOi/v/0

Note, the Columns are invisible, so click in them and start typing.

Let me know the results please
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


Ok so far. when i fill up the right hand column, i want Word to continue at the top of the left hand column, not go down to the next page.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX cannot do sorry, Word can only go right to left.

But, when you get to the end of the page, click in the top left and it goes there.

It then keeps it in the Column.

Let me know if you have any difficulties please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


That makes it very difficult. If I type a message in both columns, and have make a change in the right column, then I have to cut and paste just right to adjust the columns. I have to do about 150 of these and that going to be difficult.

 

Did you insert a frame for this and if so, how did you do it?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
This is the limitation in word Jim.

Else you need to look at online software made for this (word is for documents)
