How to Create a Folded Program in MS Word

By Lily Medina

When you set up Microsoft Word to create a folded program, Word turns the page on its side, changing the orientation to landscape view, and then splits each page into two sections. The finished product forms a folded booklet, the perfect size for a program for a theater performance, wedding, funeral or other event. Word automatically sets the margins for each half-page, leaving enough room to fold or even bind the program. It also lets you write in normal order -- page 1, page 2, page 3 -- while ensuring that the pages of the final product will follow the proper order after being folded.

Step 1

Click the "Page Setup" tab.

Step 2

Click the "Margins" icon, then click "Custom Margins" on the drop-down menu to bring up the Page Setup dialog box.

Step 3

Click the "Multiple pages" field on the Page Setup dialog box. This field is usually marked "normal." From the drop-down menu, select "Book fold."

Step 4

Click "OK" at the bottom of the dialog box.

Step 5

Add text or content to the pages of the folded program.
