Figure 9–31. Where to click to expand or narrow the printpage horizontally
Note again that, as with the Page Layout view, the Page Break Preview is live, allowing you to
enter data in this viewing mode, too—though the text appears so small that typing may pose a
challenge (Note: By clicking the View tab 100% button in the Zoom button group, or the Zoom buttons
stashed in the lower right of the status bar, or by holding the Ctrl button down as you roll the mouse
wheel, if you have one of those, you can achieve the normal 100% magnification while remaining in
the Page Break Preview. The downside of course is that you’ll see less of the page onscreen.) To exit the
Page Break Preview just click the Normal button in the Worksheet Views button group. (Note: The
Normal, Print Layout, and Page Break views can also be activated via a trio of buttons in the lower
right of the status bar, to the immediate left of the Zoom buttons.)
Now there’s another, closely related option to the Page Break Preview stored in the Page Layout
tab Page Setup button group— Breaks . As a matter of fact, it seems so similar you may think the two
are identical, but they aren’t. Whereas Page Break Preview allows you to reposition an existing br e ak
by dr ag g i n g i t, Br e aks al l ows y ou add a new page break to the printout. And note the legend that
appears when you rest your mouse atop the Breaks button: “Page breaks are inserted above and to the
left of the selection.” What does that mean? It means that if you click in cell D77 and select Breaks
Insert Page Break , you’ll get this, whether you wanted it or not (Figure 9-32):
