Creating & Printing Avery Direct Print Custom Dividers in Reverse Order – Landscape Orientation


When selecting Landscape or Top Bind orientation, the tabs will be ordered from left to right and front to back. These instructions will show you how to reverse order print your dividers so that:

  • Dividers are in Landscape orientation.
  • Tabs read from right to left—the last fifth or eighth tab position is on the left.
  • Tabs read from back to front or front to back—back to front as indicated here.



Instructions:

  1. Customize the Avery template for your product using one of Avery's template or software tools. For help selecting which template or software tool is best for you, go to avery.com/advisor.
  2. Select a template for your Direct Print Custom Dividers with Top Bind in the template name if:

 

  1. If you use the Wizard or DesignPro PC software, select Landscape orientation after you have entered your product number.
  2. Entering your tab text is next. You will need to reverse order the text to get the results you want. For example, where Tab 1 is indicated, you will enter your last (fifth or eighth) tab text. Tab 2 should contain your next-to-last tab text. Continue with this order so that Tab 5 or Tab 8 contains your first tab text as previously illustrated.
  3. Once the tab text is entered, continue to format your dividers by adding Body Text, Page Text and/or Graphics as indicated by the software.
  4. When satisfied with your formatting, you are ready to print. For information on loading the Avery dividers into your printer, refer to the Direct Print Custom Dividers printed instructions. To check your work, you may want to do a test print on plain paper before printing on the dividers.
  5. The dividers may need to be reverse collated after printing depending on whether you want Tab 1 in the top right (front to back) or bottom right (back to front) position as indicated here.
