    Re: Gutter? (Word2000 SR1)

    When you open a book the space in the middle where the pages are bound together is the gutter... because it looks like, well, a gutter.
    This is used to make sure your information does not disappear by "falling into the gutter" once all your pages are bound.
    You can also click on the "What's This" button and click on the label to get a further MS definition. (I have W97 on this machine and forget what 2K looks like to better direct you how to get that extra info)

    hope that clears things up
    have fun

    M.Q.

    KT's response was fine. Pictorially, you might want to look at the Word help: page margins shows how gutters relate to the rest of the page. There is also a help topic for page layout with a somewhat useful picture. This is for Word 97. I think these 2 pictures were actually combined into 1 in Word 95. No telling what's in the Word 2000 or XP help on these topics.
