pleading paper template line numbers & footer
Posted on 2004-08-03
Two legal doc setup questions:
1. In Word 2002, working with legal document templates (not created from pleading wizard) with "rules and numbers" format set up in header (double vertical line down left margin with double-spaced line numbers and single vertical line down right margin).
We can never get the line numbers to line up with the lines of text (single or double spaced). Tried different font combos, same font, and different line spacing modifications, but nothing seems to work. We don't use the pleading wizard because it doesn't set up right for our courts. Anyone ever run into this and figure out a solution?
2. Our courts want us to have the caption/title of the legal motion from the first page, repeated in the footer of each page. We use protected templates and I've never been able to set this up. I tried automatically linking the original title text with a paste link field in the footer, so it would update with whatever text was typed in the title text area. The template sets up OK, but doesn't work when you are creating a new doc from the template, I think because of some of the limitations in what functions work and don't work when you use protected templates.
Is there possibly any workaround or solution?
