Working with Custom Margins
For most documents, the Word default of 1-inch margins is fine. In some professional
settings, however, you might need to use a particular custom margin setting for all your
documents. In that case, define the custom margins using the Margins tab of the Page
Setup dialog box, and then click the Set As Default button to make your settings the
default for all new documents. Keep in mind that most printers can’t print to the edge of
the page; if you select custom margins that are too narrow for your printer’s specifications,
Word alerts you to change your margin settings.
Previewing and Printing a Document
To be sure the document is ready to print, and to avoid wasting paper and time, you
should fi rst review it on the Print tab in Backstage view to make sure it will appear as
you want it to when printed. Like the One Page zoom setting you used earlier, the Print
tab displays a full-page view of the document, allowing you to see how it will fi t on the
printed page. However, you cannot actually edit the document on the Print tab. It simply
provides one last quick look at the document before printing.
