Can I add 1 more page with the same format to my resume template?2020-08-12T13:17:44-04:00

Yes, you can. Simply copy all elements of your curriculum (Ctrl + E in Windows/Cmd + A in Mac). Add a blank page (Insert>Blank page) and with the cursor at the top of the page, paste all elements (Ctrl + V/Cmd + V).

More information for Word

To put a blank page into your Word document, place the cursor where you want the new page to begin and then click Insert > Blank Page. The blank page opens, ready for whatever you want to add.

In Word for Android and Word for iOS, to add a blank page, tap Insert > Page. A blank page opens for you to add content.

Another option when you need a little space is to insert a page break. The difference is that Insert > Blank Page puts an entire blank page into your document, and Insert > Page Break doesn’t. Instead, it pushes whatever comes after the break to the top of the next page. See Add a page break for more about page breaks.

Tip:  If you’re formatting a complex document and you quickly want to add or look for blank pages, page breaks, or other elements, click View > Navigation Pane > Pages to see what’s where.

To remove a blank page from your document, see Delete a blank page.

How do you print without borders or margins?2020-08-12T13:17:15-04:00

Borderless printing depends a lot on the type of printer you use. We recommend you take your file to a digital printing company because they will have printers that print these type of files without margins.

If you have a printer that supports borderless printing, you can print any file without margins. This feature can be very useful, especially if the file you want to print contains content that goes all the way to the page edges. However, even if your printer supports borderless printing, the default setting for files is to shrink the content to fit standard page margins (usually an inch on each side). To print your file without these margins, go to the print settings.

For example, for PDF files:

  • Double-click on the PDF document to open it with the default program, usually Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat Pro. Open the “File” menu and click “Print” to open the Print dialog box.
  • Select your printer from the “Printer” drop-down menu and select “Actual size” under “Size Options.” Click the “Page Setup” button. If your printer supports borderless printing, the Margins section of the dialog box will be editable; change each margin setting to “0” and click “OK.”
  • Change any additional settings, such as the number of copies and which pages of the PDF you want to print. When ready, click the “Print” button to print your PDF document without margins.

For others formats, .pages or .docx, the procedure is similar.

For Word files, visit video “Print a borderless PDF from Microsoft Word Document” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc8XlJm6fSo

Important: all templates, in all formats and in all platforms are already configured without borders, but if you have problems of configuration problems visit the previous video or contact me to solve them.

How does this template work?2020-08-12T11:55:54-04:00

Everything in the template is editable but sometimes, MS Word is a bit capricious software with the design so performing these actions becomes a bit more complex.

Objects are placed on different levels according to the order in which they were inserted into a document.

On Gumroad, we can sell physical or digital products. In our case, we sell digital products (Resume templates). For clarity, and for you to be more at ease, please let me explain how the purchase process works on Gumroad:

When you buy a digital product on the website templatesforpersonaldevelopment.com you pay using Gumroad, so the final seller is always Gumroad. We “Templates Design Co.” are only content creators.

You have purchased one of the templates from our shop (Templates Design Co.) but your money has gone directly to Gumroad, since it is Gumroad who bills the product. (Please check your invoice).

The money you have spent in our shop buying a resume template is not yet in our bank account (Templates Design Co.). At the end of the month Gumroad deposits in the bank accounts of each seller the money of the sales made during that month (discounting from the total amount of commissions that as a seller we have to pay to Gumroad, and refunds we make). We sellers never directly manage the payments that customers make in our shop, nor do we have access to your private info or credit card. As you can check, sales are managed through a secure payment method. When we issue a refund, what we do is tell Gumroad to return your money since you want to return the product you bought at our shop

“Gumroad keeps your credit information secure. Our shop (Templates Design Co.) never receive your credit card information.”

Sharing files that contain non-standard fonts2020-08-12T13:32:31-04:00

Most applications (such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) include fonts that are automatically installed when you install the software. However, sometimes you may want to install custom fonts that you’ve created, purchased or downloaded from somewhere else, such as the fonts included with our templates. In some templates, we use some “non-standard” fonts but free for design reasons. These fonts allow us to design a visually more appealing Resume. We do this so that your resume stands out from the crowd.

Sharing files that contain non-standard fonts

When you install a custom font, each font will work only with the computer you’ve installed it on. Custom fonts that you’ve installed on your computer might not display the same way on a different computer. Text that is formatted in a font that is not installed on a computer will display in Times New Roman or the default font.

Therefore, if you plan to share Microsoft Office Word Resume, we suggest embedding fonts on your files.

What if I need to print my resume?2020-08-12T12:18:44-04:00

If you need your resume printed, we always recommend having it professionally done (Staples, OfficeMax, etc., you can even order online). Make sure it is printed “full-bleed” (aka borderless) on nice bright white, heavier (ex. 32lb) paper. It will look SO much better than anything you can do at home!

Here are some tips to print your resume:

  • Before printing your resume, make sure your printer has the ink cartridges full, otherwise, you may be seeing your document lighter than normal
  • Use high-quality paper. You can purchase resume paper, which is a bit thicker and more textured than normal printer paper, from office supply stores. Although it is more expensive than regular paper, it will make an immediate impression on potential employers.
  • Use a quality printer. High-quality paper and great content will not help if you print your resume on a low-quality printer. Print your resume with a laser printer if possible. While inkjet printers are generally fine for printing resumes, the ink can smudge and may run if it gets wet. Resumes printed with laser printers will have ink that is less vulnerable to smudging, and that will not run as easily if the potential employer gets it wet at some point.
  • Printing your resume with no borders produces a clean, sharp, professional-looking print. If you have a printer that supports borderless printing, you have the ability to print any file without margins. This feature can be very useful, especially if the file you want to print contains content that goes all the way to the edges of the page. However, if your printer supports borderless printing, the default setting for PDF files is to shrink the content to fit standard page margins (usually an inch on each side). If you do not have borderless printers we recommend you to print your resume in a print shop or copy shop.

PRINTING YOUR RESUME WITH NO BORDERS

If you are using a domestic printer that does not accept printing to the edges, Your printed resume will appear with the white border. That’s because the cartridge cart your printer is not able to print to the edges. This is very common. Most home printers do not print to the edges.

If a white margin appears in the print preview or when you print your resume on paper, it means that your printer does not accept printing at the edges. It’s normal, most home printers and many business printers do not accept border printing. To get an accurate result, we recommend that you print your resume in a copy shop or professional print shop. Print your resume from the pdf. Your resume in pdf format does not have white borders and in the copy shop, they know how to print it so that it looks with the blue box adjusted to the edge. Take your resume in pdf format to the copy / print shop. There they know how to print it professionally without borders.

  3. Press ‘Save’ and the PDF will be made in the background in no more than a few seconds depending on your computer and the complexity of the file.

When I try to Spell Check my document, every word is underlined in red and comes up as a spelling error. How can I fix it?2020-08-12T13:36:34-04:00

This happens because it is likely that you do not have the spell check correctly set on your computer or it has simply been deconfigured for some strange reason.

Our templates are originally designed in English. If you are using MS Word and your spell checker is in a different language, you are probably marking the words in English as errors. You must change the language of your spell checker. Please check the following information,

Where are my fonts hiding?2020-08-12T13:21:47-04:00

If you are a Mac user certain installed fonts may not show in your font list. To fix the problem try closing Word and re-opening OR visit the website http://www.files-conversion.com/font-converter. php and convert your .TTF files into .DFONT files. Next, install the .DFONT files, close and re-open Word.

Why do my files print with a white border on my printer?2020-08-12T13:25:33-04:00

Most home printers are not able to print right to the edge of the page. The space around the edge is required by the printer to grip and control paper flow through the machine. If you own an A3 printer, you can simply print your A4 document on that and trim down, but is not the best solution. If not, most professional print shops can print to the edge of the page and will be able to get the job done for a minimal cost.

Why doesn’t my template look the same as the example?2020-08-12T13:21:17-04:00

Fonts installed: You’ll need to install all the required fonts (please check 0-Readme-first and Fonts folder) into your computer in order for the templates to display properly.

Software required: As mentioned in the product description, the templates are designed to work exclusively on Microsoft Word for Mac
or Windows, and on Apple Pages for Mac. Please do not use different softwares such as OpenOffice, Indesign, Word Online, Google Docs, etc, to edit your files.

If you don’t have the software, head to the Office website for a free trial of the program: https://products.office.com/en-au/try
