Default Scanning Model A/AA Articles

I have scanned one of my articles from Model A News into my Windows Photo Gallery.

Now, I want to take that scanned article and put it into Part 2 (Commercial Vehicle production) but can not get the same format (8-1/2 x 11) to transfer to my manuscript...it is smaller in size and must use the resize option which is getting me nowhere.

So the question is, how can I put the same page as in Model A News, size wise, into my document and still have the same printed size as Model A News?

Please email me at pif@bmi.net

Thanks.

Pluck

Scan, then SAVE it as a PDF Document, not as a picture.

If it's a Word document, Word will save it as PDF without having to scan it.

Assumptions on my part,

The scan is a jpeg.
You are trying to put in into a word document.

After placing it into the document, I would think you need to click on it to select it then right click on it to open options the select in front of text and then click a corner of the picture to resize it to the margins selected for the page.

With that said I no longer use word and this is from memory. Hope it helps.
