My current documentation template is in Frame. I use Frame's side-head
feature to place captions in the left margin (information mapping style).
I need to create a similar template in MS Word. Previously, I have had to
use invisible tables in order to imitate the look I am able to do in Frame.
I don't want to use tables this time around. It created a lot of headaches
that I want to avoid. So I'm hoping that Word 2000 has a side-head

Does anyone know the answer to that? Or perhaps you have some ideas?

I can e-mail you a copy of my document in Frame if a visual would help!


I don't think Word 2000 has this capability. I am currently using Word 2000
and have not been able to do pull this off, other than using the old stand
by...text boxes and yse that stuff does get messy.

Hope you have better luck,
Angie Watson
