Customizing the Brochure

Click the ‘Black and White Brochure’ or ‘Color Brochure’ link on the Diplomate Pages Index. It will take a few minutes for either file to down-load because of the images they contain. Save the file under a name of your choice on your computer.

Open the file you just saved. The files are in MS Word format, and will automatically open in Word if that is your standard word-processing program.

There are three areas, all on the first page, that you can customize. The two customizable text areas have pink text. The customizable photo box is outlined in pink.

New text: Place your cursor over the pink area and left-click your mouse. This highlights the box and allows you to delete Tony Woodward’s information and insert your personal information. Remember to change the text color, unless you want it to appear in pink! Save your file.

New picture: To insert a picture of yourself in place of Tony's smile: With the appropriate page of the brochure as the current open page, click Insert on the Command bar, then Picture/From File or Clip Art. Browse to the image you wish to include. and click Insert. The image will be inserted at the top left of the brochure page. From the View tab in the Command bar, click Toolbars/Picture then click on the picture. Crop the picture if necessary using the Crop command in the Picture Format menu then click Layout/Front of Text. This will place the image on top of the text and allow you to drag to image to the right location. Scale the image to fit the space using the corner anchor points. Click save.

After you have saved your file, it is ready for your printer or a trip to Kinko’s.

If you need help, a local web designer (or your teenage child) will be able to make the changes for you.

Diplomate E-mail List-Serv - "DipVDig"

Diplomates are encouraged to participate in the AVDC list-serv "DipVDig" . This is an informal way by which Diplomates can communicate with each other about clinical cases and lots of other topics. Messages sent to the list-serv are received as e-mails by all diplomates who choose to participate.

Only AVDC diplomates are eligible for inclusion. The list-serv messages are not official AVDC documents, and personal opinions are welcome - communications do get lively at times, but no "flames", please!

New diplomates are automatically signed up. You can subscribe or unsubscribe for DipVDig at ant time. Log in to DMS, click View My Personal Information and then click Edit. Scroll down to the List-serv section and either click or unclick the DipVDig box.
