What's wrong with setting up layouts in Word?

Many people who have become very proficient at Word like to use it as a page layout program. This may work for simple layouts such as letterheads, FAX sheets, forms, flyers, reports, manuals and product bulletins.

In general, if a document is primarily text, if the finished size is 8 ½ x 11 or 8 ½ x 14, and the finished document is a single page or multiple pages that don’t need to be bound or can be stapled in the corner, then Word will produce a good print file. However, if the document needs to be finished after printing – such as folding, cutting or saddle stitching – then prepare the text in Word but let us handle formatting with our page layout software.

All these finishing activities require adjustments to the dimensions of the panels or subsections of the document as well as creation of a “live” area with defined boundaries that are smaller than the panels or subsections. Unlike page layout software, Word is unable to accommodate these requirements.
