S tarting with the end in mind is a good idea, whether you’re planning documents or
planning your life. But what happens when your project seems to mushroom beyond
your original expectations? Perhaps the simple four-page report you planned has
grown into a multi-section project with high quality photos and fancy layouts. Now you
need headers and footers that need to be numbered differently, depending on the section
in which they fall. Maybe what you thought was going to be a simple promotional piece
has morphed into a four-color booklet with a table of contents and an index. Although it
might seem like a big job to adjust your plans and learn how to adapt your pages
appropriately, Word 2010 includes a number of features to help you get control of your pages and
create the types of documents you want to create.
This chapter helps you think through the basic layout of your document and make
decisions about the structure that underlies the content you’ll put on the page. Along the way,
you’ll discover how to set up the page the way you want it and control the way page breaks
are used in your document.
Basic Page Setup Options
Whether you successfully plan your work in advance or change strategies midstream, the
page setup features of Word 2010 help you control page layout basics. Specifically, when
