    Is there any way that I can insert a permanent mark on the left hand side of my Word personal correspondence template, so that I can fold an A4 page into DL110 envelopes correctly? In other words, each time I want to fold letters into three, I can't always get it equally folded, so would like to set a mark (hyphen, etc.) one third down the page on the extreme left of the template, as a guide. I have tried putting one in, but it moves down as I start a new line in my letters. Hoping I have explained this properly!! Thanks.

    I'm not sure but I would think of a macro that would run before print that place an underscore or a dash on the left side of the page at that particular position.

    Thanks, Hans - not au fait with macros, but will look in Google to see if it can help me. Best regards, Doug.

    Macro is no issue.
    I tried something and you ccould try it too.
    See attached file, it's blank except for a - about 10 rows down.
    This marker is placed in the header and if you set the header to be shown only in the first page, you will have your folding mark
    Hope this helps solve your issue :)

    Have now got to the "page with mark" that you attached, but I cannot see how to set the mark lower on the page, as I need to divide the page into three parts to fit the envelopes. If I fold the pages as the mark is set this does not happen. Any thoughts please?

    Like I mentioned, it's placed in the document header section. (double click i the topmost part of the document to open the header and footer section)
    Open the document header and then press delete to move the park up or enter to move it down.
    Which version of Word are you using?

    All done now! I had to run the recommended converter program, as I am still on Word 2003, but once that was done I managed to produce a template for my letters showing the mark on the left-hand side of the page. I have run off a few and will use them whenever I produce letters via my word processing program. So many thanks for your help (and patience!!). I will marked this thread as "Solved " shortly. Best regards.
