How do I divide a sheet of paper into 4 equal quadrants

I want to take a regular sheet of paper, and create 4 quadrants that are

equal in size and can be typed in. The purpose of this is to create a

product insert. So after printing, I can take it to the paper cutter, and

produce 4 equal product inserts.

I know it can be done, because I have seen it done, just don't know how to

do it.

Thanx

Mike Kingsley

    • There are a couple of ways to do this - You could use a table with four

      cells, or you could simply print four pages to a sheet - see

      Hi Mike,

      Here are two ways:

      - Go to Tools > Letters & Mailings > Envelopes & Labels, on the Labels tab.

      In the Options, select Avery stock 5845. Click the New Document button; this

      creates a one-page document containing a full-page 2x2 table. (If you can't

      see the cells, click Table > Show Gridlines.) Create your insert in the

      first cell. Then copy that cell to the clipboard, select the whole table,

      and paste to replicate it to all four cells. Alternatively, bookmark the

      first cell and insert Ref fields in the other cells that refer to the

      bookmark. Print that page in the ordinary way.

      - Create the insert on a full-size sheet, using fonts and graphics that are

      twice as big as the desired final size. In the Print dialog, choose 4 pages

      per sheet at the lower right, and in the Pages box type

      1,1,1,1

      The page will be scaled to half-size and printed four times on the sheet.

      Regards,
