Chapter 7. Working with Long Documents > Preparing for a Bound Document

Preparing for a Bound Document

If your finished document will be bound in some fashion, but especially if you will use a form of binding such as is found in books, you must allow additional margin space for the binding process; otherwise some of your text can be in the binding fold and therefore unreadable. If you open a book, the crease between the two facing pages is referred to as the gutter. You must take care to ensure that nothing except white space is in the gutter.

Change the Gutter Margin Setting

Click the File menu‚ and then click Page Setup.

If necessary, click the Margins tab.

Enter a value for the gutter margin.

Click the Gutter Position list arrow, and then click Left or Top depending on the orientation of your intended binding, (Left would be for a normal book, Top would be for a book that flips open from top to bottom).

Click OK.
