hi,

i tried weaving through the first four pages of this forum to see if there are any zine tutorials and i couldnt find any.

i get reaaaally confused reallllly easily so i would need a step by step (like, go to microsoft word, go to file, go to... etc etc.") tutorial. it needs to be for a bi-fold pamphlet.


thanksssssss

do you just mean one-pagers that you fold twice to make a little pamphlet?  if that's what you want you can go to file, project gallery, business forms, brochures.

if you mean a half-size zine (when you fold an 8.5x11 sheet of paper in half and look through it like a magazine) you can go to file, page setup, and then change page orientation to "landscape" (of if you have the handy visual version, like my microsoft word for osx, it's the one with the sideways person, either way works as long as the person is on his side), then you should go to fomat, column, and select 2 columns so the page is divided in half.

if you're doing the latter, you'll have to do a lot of planning to figure out where each of your pages will go so that when you put them all together and fold that them in half they're in the right order. i used to do this by printing out each individual half-page and laying it out on the floor in the order i wanted, then pasting it into a blank zine with page numbers on it, taking the zine apart, and moving the pages in the document around until they printed in the order i needed them (or just photocopying the cut-and-pasted version, that way is easier).  sorry, that part probably sounded confusing, but there's no really good way to describe it.

hope that helps.
