I couldn’t get what I wanted done in any Microsoft programs either.. I used Illustrator & Photoshop for all my invites/inserts/and paper designs.

Just keep bumping!.. I know there are lots of tech savvy bees around here. =)

I am also really crafty, but not so clever when  it comes to computer stuff. I used photoshop for my invites because I couldn’t get the hang of Word or Illustrator

I used Microsoft Publisher to make my inserts for my pocketfolds.  What is it that you’re trying to achieve/struggling with?  I feel like I could help if I knew more what you were looking for!

@kermie: Okay, I haven’t used PowerPoint in years, but I think it’s the same principle. Make your page size the size of the physical page, not the size of the inserts. Copy/paste your insert over from the original document your were working with (this should be the size of the individual insert).

Copy and paste as many as you need to fill the page. Let’s say there are four on each page, it should look like this (with each # being one of the designs)

Does that make sense?

Go to Page Setup and change the page size to the exact dimensions you want each of the inserts to be. There should be just one insert on the page. Then, when you print, change your print settings to print multiple pages per sheet – however many can fit on a regular 8.5×11 page. That will be a lot easier I think.

Your best bet is to use page set up. Resize the image to the size of the paper you are using.

This was why I ended up using photoshop and saving my work as an image file. I could then use Photo Viewer to select the amount of copies per sheet. It configures the images to fit automatically. I still have to do a little trimming…but not much.

@JamaicaBride: that’s what I did!!!  except, I didn’t use photo viewer.  Mine (fortunately) printed perfectly from photoshop with only a little trimming required, also.

 

 

@kermie: by card, do you mean folded or just a single side?  If a single side, I’d suggest downloading the trial version of photoshop and using that.  You can create the page the exact size you need, make your card, then print.  If you tell it to NOT scale it to the full page, it’ll print your exact size.

Other than that, I’m not sure what to tell you. 🙁
