Create a page as an insert - Pub. 2007


J

Jim K.

I am creating a newsletter to be printed on 11x17 stock, to be folded
to 8.5x 11. I have run out of space and need to have an insert page to
be enclosed.(Insert to be 8.5x11 single sheet printed both sides) Do I
need to create a new file for just the insert or is there a workaround
in Publisher that I haven't figured out?

Because the Newsletter + insert page will be emailed as PDF, I really
do not want recipients to have to fool with 2 files.

Thanks, Jim

Is the insert-page part of the general flow or is it totally separate from
the rest of the publication?

AIUI you are both emailing a PDF and sending a paper-version. Will you be
assembling the paper-set yourself or is someone else doing it?

I have some ideas on how to handle it, from a practical perspective anyway
(I've done something similar) even if not "technically correct," if the idea
is to *get the publication out*.

Thanks bj,
Insert is part of general flow and I will assemble. About 1/2 of the
recipients get the newsletter via email, in PDF format. The rest are
snail-mail. So I have to do most much of it twice. The PDF version (10
pages) is done. Now my task is to take pages 5 & 6 out of there and
somehow print the "insert" which will still be page-numbered in
sequence. And thanks for the link, but it didn't work. (I tried
different combos of it)

=================================

Link? I didn't give a link so don't know what you're referring to.

You could do what I've seen in some publications & number the "insert page"
as 5a & 5b or something -- though then the print wouldn't match page#s with
the pdf I suppose. That would matter if you referred to page#s somewhere
later on.
I'd have to give it more thought.
I'd probably also use some of Acrobat's functions in page-extraction.
Also the "brute force" approach to page numbering rather than
master-pages-automatic.
Or something.
Hmmmm
