How to Make a Brochure on Microsoft Word 2008

By Tiesha Whatley

Microsoft Word 2008 is a version of the program that Microsoft released for Apple's Mac computer system. Like the Windows version, Microsoft Word 2008 incorporated the new Ribbon design that was introduced with Microsoft Word 2007. Also like the Windows version, Microsoft provided several templates within the program or found online to create professional documents, including brochures. These templates make it possible to design a professional-looking brochure. All you need to do is add your text and images to format the document how you want it.

Step 1

Open Microsoft Word 2008 for Mac.

Step 2

Click on "File" from the menu bar and then click on "Project Gallery."

Step 3

Click on the "New" tab in the "Project Gallery." Type in "Brochure" in the search box and then press "Enter" on your keyboard.

Step 4

Scroll through the brochure templates to find a design that best suits your needs. Double-click on the template to open it in the main document window.

Step 5

Edit the text of the template by selecting it and then typing over it. Edit one piece of text at a time to keep the formatting the same as the original template.

Step 6

Edit the images of the brochure template by right-clicking them and clicking "Edit Picture." Change the way the current image is presented or switch it with another image on your computer or in the clip art collection. Save or print the brochure when you are done.
