Planning Your Document
For a short document—perhaps two or three pages—you will likely only need to think
about with the following page setup options:
The orientation of the document (portrait or landscape)
The margins for the page
The overall size of the page, if you’re printing irregular pages
A long document—such as a report with content from different departments, a book
project, or a grant proposal with a number of sections—can be a completely different
ballgame, altogether. For this longer document, you might be concerned with learning how to
set your pages up to accommodate the following scenarios:
A cover page that doesn’t print footers or page numbers
Footers that include a page number that prints in the outside corners of the page,
alternatively right and left
Section titles that change in the header area
Changes in layout from one column to multiple columns and back again
A possible change in orientation if you need to show a large table or worksheet
(perhaps in your grant proposal or report)
The following table presents several types of documents along with the page setup
elements they typically use and some variations you might encounter.
