Q1. Can I save the work that I’ve done
on a template?
A. Yes! You can save our Word documents just like you
save any other file. Select Save As, and place the
file in the location of your choice. You can make changes
to your own files for corrections or future presentations. If you
do not have Word you can download the templates to a disk for use
on another computer that has the software. You can do this
by selecting the template of your choice, when prompted to Open
or Save to Disk, select save to disk.
Q2. Can I add pictures or graphics to
A. Yes, you can insert pictures in the same way that
you can in any way that you can in any other Word Document. An easy
way to do this is to click on any of the graphics that already exist
in the template. When you do this, the Picture menu will appear
- the first action button in the picture menu will allow you to
Insert Picture. Locate the picture of your choice.
Q3. Can I change the colours of text
and/or graphics on the templates?
A. Yes. If it is an object you are trying to change,
click on the object until a box surrounds it. Right click the mouse
and select Picture Object and Open. Select what you want to change
by clicking on that portion and use the colour tool bar at the bottom
of the screen to make your changes. Once you are happy with the
colours, select Close Object and your template will be up-dated.
For changing of text colour, font, etc, this is done as in Microsoft
Q4. When I print my template, why do
I get a blank page printing out after my printing should be completed?
A. This is a form feed blank page and will happen with
some of the templates due to the formatting and set-up.
Q5. How can I use these templates to
create a mail merge?
A. To create a mail merge you will need to delete the
fields currently in the template then save the document onto your
desktop (for example). When you reopen this document it will be
a blank main document in a mail merger format. The Marbig Convention Badges (Product Code: 91005) are NOT compatible with mail merge.
If you wish to create your own template, please see the below measurements;
|Top=0cm || Side=.6cm || Height=5.7cm|
|Width=9.5cm || Vert Pitch=5.7cm || Hor Pitch=9.5cm|
|Numb Across=3 || Numb Down=2 || Paper=A4 Landscape|
Q6. I am having trouble using the templates.
Can you help?
A. We have PowerPoint Presentations available on our
website that take you through how to use our pre-formatted templates
- for MACO LABELS, MARBIG VIEW TAB TRANSPARENT DIVIDERS and MARBIG
DIVIDERS. Select BROCHURES from the Home Page. At the bottom of
the list, there are some PowerPoint Presentations. Select the Presentation
for the product you are using.

Q1. When I use this product, the subject
headers sometimes get lost behind the pages in my presentation,
what should I do?
A. View•tab has a page holder with a unique design that
allows it to work in any size binder. Larger binders tend
to push the contents farther out to the right, which would cause
the contents to cover up your subjects. We developed our title
page holder with a flap that has two positions. If you unfold
the flap, it allows your headers to stay in view in larger binders.
Q2. What is the clear sheet without
a tab for?
A. The clear sheet is your cover sheet. This should
be the first sheet in your binder and will protect your table of
contents page from wear and tear.
Q3. Sometimes my titles do not automatically
show on the second page on screen. How do I get them to show?
A. Select Print Preview and you will see your titles
on screen now.
Q4. I am using the 10 Tab View Tab Transparent
Dividers and all of my titles are not printing out on the landscape
page - the first and last titles in particular. How do I get all
titles to print?
A. Some printers do have a problem with this page due
to the amount of text that needs to be printed and your printer
set-up. To print all titles, you may need to change your font size
and the justification of each title. To do this, save this file
as a Word Document. Once opened in Word (instead of directly from
the website), you can select the text within each tab. This can
then be formatted to get it to print - for example, change the justification
from centre to left or right, reduce the size of the font, remove
the bold, etc. It may also be a good idea to reduce the amount of
text within each of the titles on the landscape page.
Q5. I am receiving the message “Margins
are set outside of your printable area”. What should I do?
A. ACCO has designed view•tabs to work on all printers.
Due to the variability of printable area of printers depending on
manufacturer and/or mode, our formatting instructions may not apply
to your particular printer. Therefore, if you receive a message
that margins are set outside of your printable area, please following
PC users: In Page Setup, select OK, and you will be prompted to "Fix"
or "Ignore" the margins. Choose "Ignore" to continue past
the unprintable margins question. Print.
Macintosh Users: change your paper to “custom paper” size. Enter
the paper size as A4 (297mm tall x 210mm wide) wide for both sheets. Print.
Q1. I am using the 10 tab View Tab
/ 10 or 20 tab Standard Dividers and having problems printing them.
Can you help?
A. If you are having difficulty printing all of the tabs
in any of the 10 or 20 Tab templates, this could be from your printer
not letting you print custom sized paper. Please try our A4 version
that may work with your printer settings.

Q2. I thought the templates would print
out on the tabs of the dividers. Can I print directly onto the tabs
A. Printing directly onto the dividers is not recommended
as dividers are actually wider than A4 and will not feed successfully
through most printers. Also, most dividers have a reinforced binder
strip where the holes are punched on the left-hand side. Printers
are too hot for this binding strip and may, in fact, cause it to
shrink when printing damaging the divider. An alternative to printing
directly onto the divider to title the tabs of your dividers, is
to use Marbig View Tab Transparent Dividers. The templates for this
product print out a table of contents page (or index page) and a
title page for the back of the binder. This title page at the back
of the binder is placed inside a special pocket (that is included
with the View Tab Transparent Dividers) and enables your titles
to be seen through the transparent tabs of the dividers from anywhere
in your binder/presentation. This eliminates flipping back and forth
to the front of the binder/presentation when needing to find particular
contents. There are 8 different template designs available for this
product and the product itself is available in 5 and 10 tab, both
in a coloured version and a clear version. You can find out more
about our VIEW TAB TRANSPARENT DIVIDERS on our web-site - simply
select Dividers and Indices from the Home Page; select Dividers
View Tab from the menu on the left hand side; select View Tab Dividers
from the drop down menu.
