Andy Walton reports:
"Using the three-page format allows you to create professional-looking folded pamphlets from a single sheet of paper...[It] sees your pamphlets divided up into three separate columns, which can be folded on top of each other to create a gatefold effect. In order to create a three-page pamphlet in Word, you will first need to use the 'Columns' feature to divide your page. You will also need to configure the software to print your work double-sided, as trifold pamphlets almost always have content on both sides of the paper...Open a new Word document and then click the 'Page Layout' tab. Click the 'Columns' option and then select 'Three' from the drop-down menu to format your document into three vertical columns...Click the 'Insert' tab and then click 'Page Break.' Word will insert a page break into your document, creating a second page. This page will also be divided into three columns, and will act as the reverse side of your pamphlet...Create your pamphlet's content. You can use any of Word's features with your page divided into columns, including different levels of heading, background colors and embedded graphics...Click 'File' and then select 'Print.' Select 'Manually Print On Both Sides' from the 'Print One Sided' drop-down menu...Click the 'Print' button to print your document. Word will print out the content on the first page and then display a dialog box asking you to reinsert your paper...Take the paper out of your printer, turn it over and then put it back into your printer's feed tray. Click 'OK' to print the reverse side of your pamphlet on the reverse side of the paper...Fold first the right and then the left columns of your pamphlet inwards along their edges."
