This months session will show how to design a sheet so that it can be
folded in four, for use as an invitation. The problem is that before
folding the text on pages 1 and 4 appears upside down to the text on
pages 2 and 3. This problem can be solved using Word and we'll
compare two of these solutions.
The second half of the session will cover designing a form. We will
examine the method of protecting a sheet, and the locking and
un-locking of fields for the users of the form. We will discuss the
effectiveness of this method is when the form is printed before use.
