Click other tabs on the ribbon to zoom, apply formatting, and add formulas,
graphics, charts, and other elements. Note, however, that Page Layout view can be set
separately on each sheet, so switching to another sheet might also switch you back
to Normal view.
In fact, we couldn’t find anything you can’t do in Page Layout view. Page Layout view is
applied per worksheet; you can specify a different view for each open worksheet, and the
settings are saved with the workbook.
You can also use the three tiny buttons at the bottom of the screen next to the Zoom
slider (which you can see in the lower-right corner in Figure 11-4) to change the view.
The first button activates Normal view, the second activates Page Layout view, and the
third activates Page Break Preview. For more about Page Break Preview, see “Adjusting
page breaks” later in this chapter.
You can adjust the margins of your printouts to allow the maximum amount of data to
it on a page, to customize the amount of space available for headers and footers, or to
accommodate special requirements, such as three-hole-punched paper and company
logos. The Margins button on the Page Layout tab, shown in Figure 11-5, provides three
settings that should meet most of your needs: Normal, Wide, and Narrow. These settings
refer to the size of the margins, not the size of the printed area. For example, to it more
data on a page, use the Narrow setting. Note that when you apply your own margin
settings, the Last Custom Setting command appears as the first item on the Margins menu,
as Figure 11-5 shows. This command does not appear unless you specify your own margin
settings. These commands also appear in the Print category on the File tab.
