3 Formatting a Turabian Paper Using Word 2007 Formatting Page Numbers Condensed Instructions If you re comfortable with Word 2007, these first few pages of instructions could be used to format a paper that has already been typed. If the paper has not been typed and more detailed instructions are needed, go to page 4. If the paper has been typed and more detailed instructions are needed, start on page 16. The key to formatting Turabian page numbers lies in creating sections and being sure that the formatting of one section doesn't affect another section. Here are the basic instructions: 1) The paper needs to be split into at least 3 sections: a) Section 1 - the title page and table of contents b) Section 2 - the body of the paper c) Section 3 - the Works Cited/Bibliography page 2) To separate the paper into sections: a) Turn on the formatting marks by clicking the Show/Hide button on the Home tab (shown to the right). b) Go to the area where one section should end and another one should begin. For example, go to the bottom of the Table of Contents page because that is where Section 1 should end, with Section 2 beginning on the next page. c) Delete any characters where the Enter was pressed or where a page break was created. (If the Enter key was pressed, the symbols will look like the symbol shown on the Show/Hide button. If a page break was created, the words Page Break will be shown.) d) Go to the Page Layout tab, click Breaks, then click Next Page. This will create a new section on the next page. The words Section Break (Next Page) should appear on the page indicating that a new section has been created. e) Go to the end of the body of the paper and repeat these instructions to create a new section for the Bibliography page. (remove any marks that might be there and create a Next Page section break) 3) Look at the left side of the status bar (at the bottom of the Word window). If the word Section is not shown there, right-click anywhere on the status bar and choose Section. This will show the number of the section that is currently being viewed. 4) Go back to the Table of Contents page and click anywhere in it. 5) From the Insert tab, click Page Numbers, go to the Bottom of Page option and click Plain Number 2. This will insert a number 2 centered in the footer area. If there is an extra blank line after the page number, click and delete it. Page 1
4 6) While the cursor is still in the footer area, click the Different First Page option in the Ribbon (on the Header and Footer Design tab). Be sure the option is turned on (has a checkmark in the box). This will allow the page number to be omitted on the title page but remain on the Table of Contents page. 7) Click the Page Number option on the left side of the Ribbon (on the Header and Footer Design tab) and choose Format Page Numbers. Choose the "i, ii, iii" option. Click OK and the page number should now be "ii" on the second page. Verify that there is not a page number on the title page. 8) Scroll down to the third page of the document (the first page of the body of the paper) and click in the header area. 9) In the Ribbon, click Different First Page so that there IS a check in it. 10) Click the Link to Previous button to TURN IT OFF! The formatting from section 1 does NOT need to carry over to section 2. 11) Scroll to the bottom of the same page and click inside the footer area. Click the Link to Previous button to TURN IT OFF! This option must be turned off in the header AND footer of this section. 12) Scroll down to page 4, the second page of the body of the paper. Click in the header of this page and turn off the Link to Previous option. Click in the footer of this page and turn off the Link to Previous option. 13) Go back to the footer of page 3, the first page of the body. Click in the footer area. Click the Page Number button, go to the Bottom of Page option and click Plain Number 2. Delete any blank line that might appear under the newly inserted page number. 14) Click the Page Number button and click Format Page Numbers. Click the Start At option, be sure the number is "1", then click OK. The page number at the bottom of the page should have changed to "1" and should be centered. 15) Click in the header area of the next page (the 2nd page of the body). Click the Page Number button, go to Top of Page, and click Plain Number 3. Delete any extra blank line that might appear under the page number. This number will be right-aligned. 16) Go to the bottom of this page and delete any page number that is shown there. 17) Scroll through the body of the paper and be sure that the first page of the body shows a number 1 centered at the bottom and the rest of the pages of the body show the page number right-aligned at the top. Page 2
5 18) Go to the first page of the Bibliography and click in the header area. 19) This section should have Link to Previous turned ON. The first page of the Bibliography should have the page number centered at the bottom and any subsequent pages should have the page number right-aligned at the top, just like the previous section. 20) If the page number at the bottom of the first Bibliography page shows a "1", click in the footer area, go to the Page Number button, click Format Page Numbers, and click "Continue from Previous Section". This will pick up the numbering from Section 2 and continue it in the 3rd section. However, it might already have the correct numbering. 21) The page numbers can be formatted to a different font and/or size if necessary. 22) To exit from the header/footer area, double-click in the main area of the page. To return to the header/footer area, double-click on a header or footer. 23) Print Preview the document and double-check the page numbers and their locations. a) No page number on the title page. b) Page number ii centered in the footer of the Table of Contents page. c) Page number 1 centered in the footer of the first page of the body of the paper. d) Page number 2 right-aligned in the header of the second page of the body of the paper and no page number in the footer. This type of formatting should continue throughout the remaining pages of the body of the paper. e) Page number xx (the next consecutive page number) centered in the footer of the first page of the Bibliography and no page number in the header. f) Page number xx right-aligned in the header of the second and subsequent pages of the Bibliography and no page numbers in the footer.

12 Set the Hanging Indents and Line Spacing for the Bibliography The Bibliography is typed so that the first line of each entry is even with the left margin and all other lines are indented ½ inch. This format is known as a hanging indent. Each item is also single-spaced with a blank line separating one item from the next. Follow these steps to have Word do this automatically: 1) On the Home tab or the Page Layout tab, locate the Paragraph group and click the small square that s located to the right of the word Paragraph (shown at the top of page 2). 2) Click the Indents and Spacing tab if necessary. 3) Set Special to Hanging. 4) Set Line Spacing to Single. (If the professor wants the entries double-spaced, set this to Double.) 5) Set After to 12 pt. (Leave it at 0 if the professor wants the entries double-spaced instead of singlespaced.) 6) Click OK. Type and Sort the Bibliography Type the items in the bibliography in the format specified by the instructor. Only press Enter when one item has been completely finished. You do not need to type the entries in alphabetical order because Word can sort them. To sort the entries, do the following: 1) Select all the entries in the bibliography. (This can be done by dragging the mouse over all the entries to highlight them.) 2) Go to the Home tab and click the Sort button, located in the Paragraph group (shown in the small picture to the right). 3) Be sure that the top two Sort by boxes contain the words Paragraphs and Text (shown in the larger picture to the right). 4) Click OK and the entries should be placed in alphabetical order, based on the first word in the entry.

The first page number of the bibliography should display at the bottom center and the numbers on the next pages should be at the upper right corner, just like the formatting in the body of the paper. However, if for some reason the formatting doesn t look like it should, do the following: Page 12
15 1) Go to the first page of the bibliography and click anywhere on the page. If there is NO page number at the top and the correct page number is at the bottom, ignore the rest of the instructions in this section. Otherwise, continue with the next instruction. 2) Look at the left side of the status bar (the lower left corner of the Word window) and verify that the Section number is 3 (and also be sure that the cursor is blinking somewhere on the first page of the bibliography).

17 Formatting a Turabian Paper Using Word 2007 Modifying a Typed Document If the paper has already been typed and it needs to be formatted according to the Turabian guidelines, follow these steps: Check the margins Go to the Page Layout tab, click Margins, and be sure that the Normal option is chosen. This will format the paper with 1 margin on all sides. Check the line spacing If there is an extra blank line after each paragraph, select all the text in the body of the paper, go to the Page Layout tab and change the After setting to 0, as shown here. If clicking the small triangles doesn t give 0 as an option, type a zero and then click inside the document. The default spacing in Word 2007 adds extra space each time the Enter key is pressed. This extra space needs to be removed. Title Page If necessary, follow the steps on page 5 for creating or redoing the title page. Table of Contents Follow the steps on page 5 and 6 to create the Table of Contents page. If it has already been typed without dot leader tabs, it will probably be easier to retype the entire page than to modify what has already been typed to include these types of tabs. Section Breaks In order to create a section break between the different parts of the paper, do the following: 1) Scroll to the first page of the body of the paper and click directly in front of the title so that the cursor is blinking in front of the first letter (to the left of the first letter). 2) Press the Backspace key several times until the title has moved back to the Table of Contents page. 3) Go to the Page Layout tab, choose Breaks, then click Next Page to create a new section and move to a new page. 4) If necessary, click the Center alignment button (or press Ctrl + E) to re-center the title. 5) Scroll to the first page of the bibliography and click directly in front of the title so that the cursor is blinking in front of the first letter. 6) Press the Backspace key one or more times until the title has moved back to the last page of the body. 7) Go to the Page Layout tab, choose Breaks, then click Next Page to create a new section and move to a new page. 8) If necessary, click the Center alignment button (or press Ctrl + E) to re-center the title. Page 15
18 9) Go to page 11 for instructions on setting up the page numbers. If the current page numbers are wrong, double-click on them and delete them. Headings If the professor wants three blank lines above the headings, click anywhere on each heading, go to the Page Layout tab and change the Before option to 12. This will add an extra blank line above the paragraph where the cursor is blinking. Footnotes If the footnotes have already been entered, follow the directions on page 8 and 9 for modifying the footnote text style. One exception: Don t change the After setting if a blank line has already been added after each footnote. By choosing the Automatically Update option, Word will update every footnote based on the new style. Bibliography If the bibliography was forced to display the lines with the correct indentations (by pressing Enter at the end of each line and then pressing Tab to indent the lines after the first line), the extra paragraph breaks will need to be removed. In order to see the characters that need to be deleted, click the Show/Hide button on the Home tab. This will display marks that are hidden, such as that indicates the Enter key was pressed, an arrow for the Tab key, and a raised dot for the space bar. Delete any of these paragraph marks that display at the end of a line unless they are at the end of the last line of an entry. Also delete any Tab marks (arrows) that display at the beginning of a line. If the entries need to be sorted (put in alphabetical order), delete any blanks lines that were placed between the entries. To format the entries, select all the items in the bibliography (but don t select the title at the top of the page), then follow the instructions on page 10 for setting the hanging indent and line spacing. If the blank lines weren t deleted and the entries don t need to be sorted, do not change the After setting (leave it at 0 pt.). If the entries need to be sorted, follow the instructions on page 11 for placing them in alphabetical order. Page Numbers Go to page 11 for instructions on setting up the page numbers. If the current page numbers are wrong, double-click on them and delete them. Page 16
