    Template error? (2007)

    I'm trying to print my own "Thank you" cards with Avery note cards, product number 3268. The product is supposed to yield two cards per US letter-size sheet. The sheets are microperforated to break apart the two cards, and each card is pre-scored to make it easy to fold into a 4-1/4" X 5-1/2" card. I've used this product before to make small holiday greeting cards, but at the time I was using a Broderbund software product that I no longer own.

    My issue is not with the Avery product, but with Publisher. When I launch the blank card on-screen, I have only a single page available to design. I expect to see four pages: The cover, the inside left and right, and the back. Print preview shows four identical single-sided cards, and that's what I get when I print a test page. Is Publisher flawed, or am I missing something?

    Hi Lucas

    I do not have Publisher 2007, I can create a workaround to your problem in the 2003 version by selecting a greetings card and then making sure it has 4 pages and copying and pasteing the information to the right pages. I would suggest though that a better alternative may be the free Avery te,plate wizard which is specific to their products. Perhaps there is something on this page that may help

    Thanks for the tip, Steve. Before you wrote with your excellent suggestion, I had solved the problem by downloading another template from the Avery Web site and printed my cards in MS-Word.

    I also vented my frustration on a Microsoft community for their Publisher application. Within 24 hours, I got a response from an MVP, who told me there's "no easy way" to fix my problem in Publisher! The MVP gave me some useful information, but I was left wondering why Microsoft would bother to include a template for an Avery product in their expensive application without bothering to see that the template functions properly! <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>
