Default Direct Printing on Divider Paper

If your printer can handle the larger paper size, then create a document to
the width of the paper plus tab and put a borderless text box where the tab
should be, put your text in the box and rotate it. I would imagine that it
will be quite fiddly to get it right and there's a good change the printer
will chew up the tab. That being the case print the tab text on a label and
stick it to the tab.

Default Direct Printing on Divider Paper

As previously mentioned, your printer must be able to handle the "oversize"
stock.
If it does, you may find you have to rotate your print image by 180 deg. as
usually the printer will take the divider "backwards", i.e. the non-tabbed
side first.

To get you started, go to the Avery or MS websites as they have pre-setup
templates for the various types of dividers, just download the one you want,
i.e. the stock size, say Oversize A4, and what design of tabs, say 1-5 tabs,
and off you go.

Hope this helps

I don't know if they're still made, but didn't Avery use to make oversized
tabbed dividers with the tabs initially folded in, so that they could be
printed that way? I would still be concerned about the tabs setting chewed
up, though, since printing on them is a little different from feeding an
envelope, where the flap is on the opposite side to the printed one.

Suzanne, I have never come across the "folded" tabs stock, I have a source of
blank 1-5 and 1-10 on Oversize A4, these are not from Avery as the Avery
stock tend to have their logo and coding on and I want to print full page as
well as on the tab.
But I used the templates from their website to get a good starting point for
my templates, I only needed a slight adjustment to the text boxes ovee the
"tabs" to get a good result.
The stock is presented to my printer; a Xerox 7235 which is getting old now
:-( ; via the manual feed long edge without tabs first and I rotate the print
image by 180 deg. and this works very well.

I may be remembering wrong, or perhaps I made this up. In any case, whatever
works for you is the correct solution!

Default Direct Printing on Divider Paper

Okay, I did NOT make this up. My husband just came in and asked whether I
had any unused dividers. In scrounging around for some I ran across an
unopened package (I don't think I bought them--I think I got them as part of
some promotion) of Avery 11526 Direct Print Custom Dividers 5 Tabs. It's not
the tabs that fold in and out but the part of the divider (Mylar-reinforced)
in which the holes are punched. Someone has even posted a template for these
at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/te...129551033.aspx

They're in a catalog at http://alleghenyoffice.com/pages/219.htm, but the
fact that Google doesn't come up with a direct Avery link suggests that they
may have been discontinued. They come with a CD of formatting software and
200 clip art images, so I guess I ought to open the package and at least
retrieve the CD.
