What kind of product support do you offer?

I highly recommend that you have a basic understanding of Microsoft Word before downloading one of my templates. I can provide you with assistance on formatting issues related to the template. However, I cannot provide support on Microsoft Word specific functions such as adding borders, changing fonts, background colours, etc. 

How do I make more pages for my resume?

The easiest way to maintain formatting on additional pages is to duplicate your entire document. Unfortunately, Word isn't great at maintaining styles when you simply copy and paste within the same document. After you duplicate your document and make edits, you can combine your documents before saving or sending your resume.
