Odd and Even Page Text

Guest

Working on a long Word doc an agreement. I need to print in duplex mode. I
want to print Article Titles on the odd pages flush to the right hand margin.
I want the Article Titles on even pages to print to the left-hand margin
side of the page. The Articles Title should not be printed on each page. I
want to do this automatically because this is a template and text may be
inserted and Article 2 may not necessarily be on page 2, but on 3 depending
on text insertion. Help please. Thank you!

One way to handle this is to use text boxes to lay out the pages (but
note that a page layout program, such as Publisher, would do a better
job).

Alternatively, insert a section break before each new article (an even
or an odd break, depending on what you want) and then insert the title
in the first page header of the inserted section.

Stefan, Thank you. I did try the section breaks, but I didn't seem to get
them to do what I wanted. The first page of my document will contain a cover
for the agreement. The second and third pages are where the table of
contents will be. The other problem is that I need to put the same header
text throughout the document. There will be no blank pages as the idea is to
cut down on document size and paper. This is a template that I need to set
up which will eventually be shared by others. I tried playing around with
frames, but I can't get it to work right. Appreciate your help!

Help Please! I need help with the Frame feature. I tested using the frames
and got this to work somewhat. However, the even page Article text is
showing on the top right hand side of the page and the odd page is showing on
the left. I need the even to show on the left margin and the odd page text
on the right. When I insert a page break the frames automatically move and
are line up with the margins;however, not the way I want. Is there anyway
to get the first even page to have the text line up on the left hand side.
Please help!

Are you saying that you want the titles in the margin? Or are you
referring to right-aligned versus left-aligned text?

If the latter, you don't need frames. Instead, you could just create two
styles--one that is left-aligned and one that is right-aligned--and then
format them both as "Page break before" (Paragraph dialog box).

If you do need frames, insert two example frames and position them the
way you want them (by dragging them). Then select each frame and create
a style that includes the relevant formatting as well as "Page break
before."

Stefan, Thank you. I'm referring to Article Titles should be aligned with
the margins.
Odd should be right align. I would like the Article titles to line up with
the right or left margin depending on what odd or even page they are on.
This should happen automatically. There will be a need to insert text
between Article 1 and 2; thus Article 2 may be on even or odd page. I used
frames and tested by inserting page breaks. The frames did move
automatically, and line up with the margins on the odd and even
pages;however, the frames on the even pages were on the right hand and the
frames on the odd pages were on the left hand side. What I need is even
pages on the left and odd on the right. I know it's a little confusing. I
do need help please.

As I wrote, this is tricky in Word: you may not get exactly what you want,
and it certainly will require some manual work.

What positioning options did you choose for the frames, in the Frame dialog
box?
