Introducing the page tools
When planning the page layout for a project, you must consider some basic page design
principles. The design must appeal to your target audience. You must balance your text,
graphics, and white space to create a pleasing layout, and also use a background that contrasts
with the text color for increased readability. You should also use color consistently to please
the eye and add interest to the page contents. Word provides the tools so you can design each
page to i t your needs.
The Page Layout tab on the Ribbon contains the tools you need to apply formatting to
a page.
The Page Layout tab displays tools to set up and design pages.
The Page Layout tab helps you quickly format a page. From this tab, you can:
Apply themes for consistent color and font style
Set margins, page size, and page orientation
Create columns and add page breaks
Apply a watermark, background color, and border
Insert page and section breaks
Add line numbers in the margin
Turn on hyphenation so Word breaks lines between the syllables of words
Setting the page size
In Word, the default page size is 8.5 x 11 inches and the default page orientation is portrait. If
you need any other setting for a document, such as Executive 7.25 x 10.5 inches or Legal 8.5
x 14 inches, you have to change the page size manually.
In this exercise, you will work with an existing document and set the page size to 8.5 x 14
inches with landscape orientation.
