Front Matter

Each report template comes with an easy to edit cover page built in. Where required, fields will be used to make it easy for certain content to appear throughout the document – for example the document title appearing in the footer automatically. Page numbers start after the cover page and are also built in. By default, your report will include a Table of Content (TOC) built in so it will be one-click to update. Great for time saving.


Bulletpoints and numbered lists

By default styles are built in to your report template. The bullets go to three levels. These are all custom selected by our designer to match your brand.


Single, double sided, or flexible

With single sided, each page will look the same in terms of page number, where the logo sits etc. Double-sided will be alternating left and right pages so that it looks great printed and bound as spreads. Flexible will be designed in a way that you could use it for either – Your choice.


Headings, subheadings

All the fonts including headings and sub headings are all built in. These match your brand. So you can simply add your content directly into InDesign or Word to remain on brand. In Word, your document can even have locked formatting. As a standard, you will be given three heading levels. If you need any specific styles please let Make Better Documents know and these will built in for you.
