    Arranging Meetings Minutes (All)

    We have tried all ways we can think of to get peoples initials into the right margin next to the appropriate paragraph to indicate that action is needed.

    - A 2 column layout means we have to add multiple returns and page breaks become messy.
    - Text boxes seem to have a life of their own and it takes for ever to create them and get them where we want them.
    - Using a style to move them into the right margin works fairly well but means they are always below the paragraph they refer to.

    Does anyone who arranges minutes regularly have any tips as to the best way to proceed.

    Hi David:
    Can you use a 2 column table with the left column for text & the right column narrow for initials? You could set it up & save it as an autotext entry.

    A table with 2 columns works well

    Phil beat me to it, and his description was more complete.

    I personally have always used tables myself, but you also could use a style with, say, a .5" right indent, and set a right tab at the right margin. At the end of the paragraph describing the item, press tab and you can enter the person's initials at the right margin (see illustration). If the entry in the right column needs to be on more than one line, a table is much better.
