Choosing page size and margins
5 In the Page Setup dialog box, type the desired measurements in the
Top, Bottom, Left, and Right text boxes.
If your design calls for an asymmetric layout, you can enter differ-
ent values for Left and Right, or for Top and Bottom.
6 If your document will be printed on only one side of the page and
then bound, you should add extra width to the left or top margin
by entering a value in the Gutter text box and choosing an item in
the Gutter Position drop-down list.
7 If you entered different left and right margins in step 5, and if you
plan to print the document on both sides of the paper (duplex
printing), click the Multiple Pages box and click Mirror Margins.
8 If you selected text in step 1, click the Apply To drop-down list and
click Selected Text.
When you choose this option, a Next Page section break is inserted
automatically between the selected text and any unselected text
that occurs before or after the selection.
9 Click OK.

the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Breaks and
insert Continuous section breaks manually before you start this
procedure. For information about inserting section breaks, see
“Inserting a section break” on page 136.
