Posted: 27 Oct 2009 01:01 PM PDTClothes make the man (and always, the woman!) but how much care do you put intodressing up your documents? Is it all title, headings, subheadings, bullets andparagraphs or do you put some more thought into the Word document?There are a lot of things which can go into creating a professional looking document.But when we are talking about first impressions, then we have to speak about the firstthing that catches the eye and that’s the cover page.The cover page is the very first page of your document. Its purpose right at thebeginning is to give the reader the Big Idea about the document. The why andwherefore is communicated through a specific title, the author name, date, a one-liner on the subject and any other bit of important information on the cover page.
If Black Text On A White Page Is A Turn Off…
One of the reasons I am writing this post is that Microsoft Wordmakes it painless to create a professional cover page. Unlike the previous versions, Word 2007 has Building Blocks which are pre-formatted templates for cover pages, headers, footers etc.Learning how to make a cover page in MS Word is as easy as a few clicks.So let’s move away from the monochromatic black on white to more colorful beginnings.1.Open MS Word 2007 in a new document or the document you wish to create the cover page for.
Click on the
menu on the ribbon. The very first section, Pages contains the dropdown for 
Cover Page
. Clickon
Cover Page
to open the inbuilt gallery of templates.
The inbuilt gallery has about
pre-formatted cover pages that you can scroll though. Click on the one you like to selectand open it. The cover page appears at the beginning of the document by default.
4.If you want it in any other location, right click on the cover page thumbnail in the gallery and select from the optionsgiven.
5.Now, you can click on each pre-formatted field (the square brackets) and the whole thing gets highlighted with a bluefield label on top. Type in your version for the given field. The author name might appear by default if the Officeinstallation was in your name.6.For date fields, you can click the dropdown arrow to select a date from a calendar. You can format all fields as youwould for normal text.
Building blocks have editable regions which can be customized again. For instance, some of the cover page templatesuse tables which again can be formatted for size and color of borders or fills using Word’s table tools. Also, sometemplates have pictures which can be swapped for another or formatted. Think a logo would go better with the page?Just right click on the picture and click
Change Picture
in the context menu.
