Hello,

My name is David.

Word has a built-in template for 3x5 cards that creates three 3x5 cards at one time. To access the template, go to the Tools > Labels, then click the Options button. Select Avery for vendor and choose the Avery 5388 index card for the type of label and click OK. This will enable you to print three 3x5 cards on an 8.5x11 sheet.

Please let me know if you have questions with any of the steps or need further assistance.

Thanks,

David.

Seems to be a solution. I will know for sure when I actually print this out, which I will have to do at a later date. Thanks
Microsoft Office Technician: syseng, Information Systems Professional replied 3 months ago

Ok, very good.

Also, please provide a positive rating (3, 4, or 5 star) as that is how I receive credit for my work.
Thanks,
David.

It doesn't work, sorry, but a second attempt and I couldn't move the cursor from a center line point on the index card/I give you a 3 star - since I don't know what is highest and what is lowest - the answer didn't help me so it is a 1.
Microsoft Office Technician: syseng, Information Systems Professional replied 3 months ago

Please don't provide a rating yet then, as there are other options. Just a moment...

So there is a manual way to make 3 x 5 cards one at a time using the page layout method in Word. Since it is easier to view, here is a link to a video on how to do it:

click here

So essentially do the following:

Click the Page Layout tab at the top of Word.

In the Page Setup group, select the Size drop down box and click on the 3 x 5 option or select the closest dimension to it and type in the 3 x 5 dimensions.

Please let me know if that provides what you need.

There is no PAGE LAYOUT option on Word 2008. You did your best but it wasn't good enough. Sorry I am not going to waste more time with this.
Microsoft Office Technician: syseng, Information Systems Professional replied 3 months ago

Yes actually it is Layout rather than Page Layout by default. Then under Layout is where you find the rest of the options to change the size.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Not so, there is no LAYOUT - again I am using WORD 2008.
Microsoft Office Technician: syseng, Information Systems Professional replied 3 months ago

Sorry, you were right - for some reason I brought up 2011 not 2008. Here is the correct way to change the page size:

Click File then select Page Setup in that menu. Select the size you need in the Paper Size drop down or click Manage Custom Sizes to enter the 3 x 5 page size.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
WRONG again. when I click on custom, there it does not allow me to enter a size! I will not be responding to any future suggestions. Sorry for the trouble.
Microsoft Office Technician: syseng, Information Systems Professional replied 3 months ago

Strange as what I describe above is exactly how my Word 2008 works. I will open this question up in case another expert has additional ideas to assist you.

Best regards,

David.
