Choosing Orientation
Tip
To change the default setting for measurement units shown in Word, click File, then in
Backstage view, click Options. In the Advanced area, scroll to the Display options, and
select a measurement unit from the Show Measurements In Units Of list box. You can
choose to work with Inches, Centimeters, Millimeters, Points, or Picas. In case you are
unfamiliar with the two last terms, points and picas are standard print and graphics
industry measurements in which 6 points equals one pica, and 72 points equals one
inch.
Binding Documents
I f you’ll be binding the document you create, be sure to specify a gutter margin large
enough to accommodate the binding. If your document is to be printed single-sided,
every gutter margin will show the spacing you enter along the left margin. If your
document is to be printed double-sided, on the Page Layout tab, click the Page Setup
dialog launcher. On the Margins tab, click the Multiple Pages arrow, and then choose
Mirror Margins to make sure that the margin settings are applied to the left and right
interior margins. If you select any option other than Normal on the Multiple Pages
list in the Pages area of the Page Setup dialog box, Word disables the Gutter Position
option and adds the gutter setting to the appropriate margin, such as applying the
gutter setting to the inside margins for book fold documents.

Professionally.”
Choosing Orientation
A document’s orientation affects the way content is printed on a page. Typically, letters,
invoices, reports, and newsletters use portrait orientation, which prints the page in standard
8.5 × 11-inch format so the page is taller than it is wide. Charts, calendars, and brochures
typically use landscape orientation, which prints the page in 11 × 8.5-inch format, resulting
in a page that is wider than it is tall.
