stapled together to form brochure. You might want to by undul854


1. Create a 3-fold brochure for use in your clinical classroom. Hand in paper copy. Two pieces of paper may be
    stapled together to form brochure. You might want to create directions on how to do something on the
2. Create a one page (or more) newsletter. Include a title box (like on this handout), clip art, at least four stories,
    and at least one linked text box. Hand this document in electronically (I want to see linked text box).

Creating a 3-Fold Brochure
• Change page setup to Landscape (file-page setup). Change margins to .5 (format-document).
• Reduce document size to see entire paper (75% works well)
• Change columns from 1 to 3. Can you see how wide each column is? (view-ruler if not showing)
• Insert column and page breaks to identify the end of each column and to generate a second page
• Create information in each column for brochure. Use textboxes to have most control over layout.
• In this version of Word, text only flows around clipart when it is not in a textbox. Using linked textboxes will
   help you get around this problem.

Creating a Newsletter
Title Box: Use WordArt or a large font size. Set off title with a line (or two) or a box (or two). Change line size to
make interesting. See Draw toolbar. You may need to set a column break after your title box if you want to use
two columns elsewhere in the newsletter.
Articles: Create at least four. Use textboxes or two columns or a combination of both.

Linking Text Boxes
• Type a long text passage in a textbox. Type more than will fit in the box (hint: don’t make your box too big,
   cut and paste text from elsewhere when practicing).
• Create a second textbox in your document (leave it empty at the moment).
• Return to textbox 1, click on the link icon (view toolbars textbox if it didn’t automatically pop up). Link icon
   changes to a measuring cup with handle. Click on empty textbox. Extra text flows into this second textbox.
• Cool!! Use in newsletters/papers to continue story from one page to another or one column to another. Use a
   separate textbox to refer reader where story is continued (i.e. continued column 2)

Graphics and Clip Art
• Word unfortunately is not a graphics friendly program. When you insert a graphic, it typically jumps all over
   the place and messes up your text. To help alleviate this problem, open another Word document, insert your
   graphic/clip art into it, resize to desired size, make other changes to picture, and change Format Picture to
   desired wrapping style (i.e. Tight). Next, copy picture then paste in Brochure/Newsletter (or simply drag it into
   your Newsletter/Brochure).
• If your picture is from a digital camera, crop, reduce physical size, and file size in PhotoShop before inserting
   into that separate Word document.

Copying Desktop Icons When Making Directions
• Decide what you want to copy/illustrate, have it showing on the screen.
• Press Shift and Control and Apple and 4. Cursor changes into plus shape. Go to area that you want to copy,
   hold down on mouse button to select area to be copied. When you have area selected, let up on mouse button.
   Click, picture was taken.
• Go to document where you want picture, edit – paste to put picture in document. Picture toolbar to have text
   flow around picture.

Changing Case (forgot to capitalize for title??)
Format – change case Look to see what’s available!
Check out text direction and drop cap too. (format – text direction or drop cap) … WAY COOL!
