Avery makes a good product and provides robust software and support to get the most out of each product. But these 5 subject dividers with 3 sub-dividers each (Avery # 13154) have some issues.
It is rather curious and arbitrary why each of these 5 main dividers have only 3 sub-dividers. It makes sense when you realize that all of the sub-dividers hide nicely behind their color-matched main divider. Still, this is rather artificially limiting for larger applications; there is no expandability built in to the design.
Only 1 pre-color-coded table-of-contents page is provided. At least 3 would be ideal for inevitable printing mistakes and future re-usability. Thus, it is advantageous to photocopy the original before printing, in addition to pre-testing on blank paper. It would also be better if this TOC page had the same reinforced binding edge that the actual divider pages have.
However, this humble set of dividers by Avery becomes more versatile when you take advantage of Avery's customization options for the Table of Contents page. There is some misinformation out there on this. Here's a bit of Q & A :
1) Can I use any word processor to customize my TOC? You can use Word and some Adobe products. Just download the template you need from Avery into your word processor. Avery has a very good pictorial tutorial under the Templates tab.
2) If I use Avery Online, do I have to provide any personal information? NO. You do not need to establish an Avery account. It is very easy to do one-off ad hoc printing. If you choose to save your work, Avery gives you the option to save on your own device: at Avery Print & Design Online, click on the "Choose File" button in the section "Open A Project Saved On My Computer".
3) How difficult is it to use Avery Online? It is extremely easy to use. There are a few tips to make it more productive. Start by entering the product number of interest in the search bar. Don't use your device's back button to navigate, especially when perusing the various designs available for your product number. Use the Avery software's blue back button instead. Do set up an easy-to-find directory on your device for Avery-only work. Take advantage of all the tutorials and read through the examples.
