Five Star Index Card Template Instructions

The Five Star Index Card Template will download as a .dot (template). As a template each time you open the file, it will create a new document for use. Save just like any document to continue updating or save for future use.

When the document opens the image of the FSIC (Five Star Index Card) will be visible. The cursor will be on the first card with the frame showing around the index card. To see the beginning locations in the other index cards click the Show/Hide ¶ button. The button shows the paragraph/formatting information on the document.

Options for moving around the document

The index cards are set up with frames on each card. Each frame is set just like a document with all the formatting functions (fonts, paragraphs, spacing, etc.). When you mouse down to the next card, the frame will appear around the index card. To move around on the document using the mouse is the best option. The arrow keys are another option (but work somewhat randomly - the down and up work to go in a row, the side moves to the upper card, but not the bottom). Will not tab from frame to frame (tab is a formatting function within the frames).

Margins are adjusted and can be changed within the frames.

Click in frame and adjust margins as needed. This will assist in alignment of printing the information (prevents cut- offs from printing).
