Tri-Fold Brochure Using Word
Including Making Text Boxes & Adding Graphics
Reference Sheet - Page 1

1.  Log onto the network, make a new Word file.

2.  On Menu Bar --> File --> Save As, name the file (i.e. Inside) and save it in the appropriate folder.

Before you go on, think about what you have to do - you want to make a 3 column file that will print sideways (landscape).

3.  Set up Stuff:

   On Menu Bar --> File --> Page SetUp.
   Look at the Orientation icon and click the sideways icon
   Click OK

    On Menu Bar --> Format --> Document
    Change margins (Top, Bottom, Left & Right) to .5
    Click OK

    On Menu Bar --> Format --> Columns.
    Under Presets select 3 (all other values will fill in automatically, click OK

    Do this so that you can move from column to column easily:

Your cursor should be at the top left of your file (in column 1)
On Menu Bar --> Insert --> Break --> Column break (Notice that your cursor has popped over to the 2nd column)
Repeat, on Menu Bar --> Insert --> Break --> Column break (Notice that your cursor has popped over to the 3rd column)
SAVE

NOTE:   All work should be placed in text boxes. Do NOT type text without first making your text box. See next section.

Adding Text Box:

1.  On Menu Bar --> Insert --> Text Box
2.  Your cursor will now be the crosshair cursor (i.e. it looks like a "+" sign). Click and drag to create    your text box.
3.  Type in your information.
4.  If you wish to add "color", Menu Bar --> Format --> Text Box to shade (Fill) and outline (Line).
5.  Save

Adding Pictures:

NOTE:  Before adding your picture, you should use the Graphic Converter reference sheet to reduce the memory size.
ALL PICTURES WILL BE ADDED INSIDE A TEXT BOX
1.  All pictures should be already saved as files (if you have not done this, use the Graphics - Saving    from the Web reference sheet).
2.  Make a text box (Menu Bar --> Insert --> Text Box) where you want your picture to go.
3.  Be sure your cursor is inside the text box, then on Menu Bar --> Insert --> Picture --> From File
