When you set up Microsoft Word to create a folded program, Word turns the page on its side, changing the orientation to landscape view, and then splits each page into two sections. The finished product forms a folded booklet, the perfect size for a program for a theatre performance, wedding, funeral or other event. Word automatically sets the margins for each half-page, leaving enough room to fold or even bind the program. It also lets you write in normal order -- page 1, page 2, page 3 -- while ensuring that the pages of the final product will follow the proper order after being folded.
