Microsoft Word - Tweak Your Document's Layout In Print Preview Mode (Word 97/2000/2001/2002)


As you may already know, Print Preview mode lets you preview your document's layout before you print it. To activate Print preview mode, choose File | Print Preview, or click the Print Preview button on the Standard toolbar. In Print Preview mode, you can easily change the number of viewable pages using the One Page, Multiple Pages, and Zoom buttons. In addition, you can use the special Magnifier pointer to get an even closer look at a particular page area. Just click on the area you wish to magnify, and then click again to restore your original bird's- eye view.


However, as you preview your document, you may discover some content and layout problems that need to be altered. Fortunately, you don't have to leave Print Preview mode to get the job done. All you need to do is disable the Magnifier pointer. When you see something you want to change, click the Magnifier button on the Print Preview toolbar to temporarily disable the Magnifier pointer. When you do, the Magnifier pointer changes back to Word's standard I-beam pointer. Make the desired changes to your document. Then, click the Magnifier button again to restore the Magnifier pointer.
