The Page Setup command is used to configure settings related to how your document appears on paper, including:
- Page size
- Page orientation (portrait or landscape)
- Vertical orientation of text on a page, for example centered vertically.
- Header and footer spacing
To configure page setup:
- Choose File → Page Setup.
Shortcuts to page setup formats include:
- Set page margins by dragging the border between the margins and the text area on the ruler. The margins are shown on the ruler as a darker area; the text area as white.
- Double-click the margins (darker area) in the ruler as a shortcut to the Page Setup command.
- To configure an additional margin as space for a binding, set the Gutter margin and Gutter position.
- If you are printing double-sided, choose Mirror Margins from the Multiple pages drop-down list.
- Choose Book fold from the Multiple pages drop-down list, then choose the number of pages from the Sheets per booklet drop-down list that appears. This option will lay out two portrait pages per sheet of landscape-oriented paper, and will alter the order of pages so that you can fold the paper in half to create a booklet.
- Select Centered from the Vertical alignment drop-down list on the Layout tab to create an effective title page. This is an alternative to pressing Enter repeatedly to move text to the vertical center of the page.
