  • Help Me Format can re-create your existing documents so they look professional, consistent, and are easy to read.
  • We will set up simple to use Styles / text formatting with numbering that works properly, and has correct indentation and automatic spacing; so if you need to make further changes yourself, you can.
  • Documents will have uniform headers and footers, and a functional Table of Contents where appropriate.
  • Where applicable, we insert proper cross references to clauses which automatically update when paragraphs are inserted or deleted; as well as include insert fields, making it simple for you to fill out specifics in your document.
  • Any document with data that changes for each client will be set up as a proper Word Template so you open a fresh copy of the document each time, ensuring you are not accidentally leaving anything in or out.
  • We can even set up data auto-populate.  This means you only enter key data once, then it appears throughout the document where required automatically.
  • We can ensure the style and layout of documents meets your requirements and Branding / Style Guide if required; even picking colours from your logo / website for Headings and Table Shading if you wish.
  • In general, we prefer to re-create documents from scratch, ensuring everything is set up correctly, minimising the chance of any issues arising down the track.
  • Depending on the type of document, we may be able to provide you with some Training Material regarding its use.
  • Please check out our Portfolio to get a feel for the types of documents and styles we can do.

Troubleshooting – Fixing Issues With Existing Documents
  • In many cases, we can help fix that pesky problem!
  • For example, you might have an issue with:
    • A Table – Header row isn’t repeating on each page as it should; large gaps.
    • Headers and Footers – Page Numbering isn’t working, or they just aren’t displaying as you want!
  • Please note that unless it’s a really easy fix, in many cases we will recommend re-creating the document / template from scractch.  This way we know your document and Styles will be easy to use, robust and work correctly now and in the future.
