with Word and choose a different page size for your document, and you’re not limited to the
standard paper sizes, either.
To set the page size, obey these steps:
1. Click the Page Layout tab on the Ribbon.
2. In the Page Setup group, click the Size button.
The Size button icon is shown in the margin.
Clicking the Size button displays the Paper Size menu, stocked with a vast assortment of sheets of
paper of different sizes.
3. Choose a page size from the list.
For example, if you want to print on that tall, legal-size paper, choose Legal from the list.
Your entire document is updated to reflect the new page size, from first page to last. Well, that is,
unless you split your document into sections. Then the page size change is reflected only for the
current section. Refer to Chapter 14 for information on sections.
To select a size not shown on the menu (refer to Step 3), choose the More Paper Sizes
command, found at the bottom of the Size menu. You can then manually set the page size by using
the Paper tab in the Page Setup dialog box.
Word dutifully sets your document to any paper size imaginable, but can your
printer handle that paper size? If you’re only publishing the document electronically, page size is no
big deal. But if you want to print a document, ensure that the printer can handle whatever paper
size you chose.
Setting orientation (landscape or portrait)
Word assumes that you want your document’s text to print from left to right on a page that’s taller
than it is wide. That’s what it considers normal. It’s also called portrait orientation because the page
is presented vertically, like a portrait.
Word can also be told to print longways, or in landscape orientation. To perform this trick, follow
these steps:
1. Click the Page Layout tab on the Ribbon.
