    TRi Fold leaflets (2002 XP)

    Is there any easyway to print a trifold brochure without having to use columns. I know in XP there is a booklet priniting option, I wondered if there was a quick way to get it to order a 3fold booklet

    The booklet option in Word does not work for a trifold brochure; I wouldn't know how to do this without columns. If you do a Google search for instructions on how to make trifold brochures in Word, you will see that they all use page setup with three columns.

    If you are desperate to do this in Word you can use text boxes placed on the page and then link these together in any order to get the text to flow in any order across these elements.

    Can you explain the reason for "without having to use columns". Maybe we can find a way that you can use columns without suffering whatever drawback you have seen.

    It isn't me with the problem as I can quite happily use columns, it is for one of our users. Unfortunatley Word Perfect the system we used before had a 3 fold brochure feature. people still want to use it and can't accept that they will have to do a little "fiddling" to do the same in Word.

    Hopefully Microsoft will look at this - or more likely they will advise you to buy Publisher!

    Thanks
