Getting a New View of Your Document
document. Word offers you many different ways to view your work, depending on the type
of document you’re creating and the task at hand:
• Print Layout This view, which is used by default when you create a new document,
seems to be the view most people use as they create and edit their documents. It
shows how the document will look when printed. In this view, you can see headers
and footers as well as footnotes and endnotes. The edges of the page and the space
between pages are also visible as you type and edit.
You can alternately suppress and display the top and bottom margins of your
document in Page Layout view by double-clicking the space between the pages.
By default, Page Layout view shows a gap between pages. If you position the
pointer over the page break, the pointer changes to two arrows and a tooltip
prompts you to double-click the space to remove it. Double-clicking at that
point removes the space between the pages and enables you to view text before
and after the break in a continuous paragraph. To return the page display to the
default setting, position the pointer over the page break line and double-click.
• Full Screen Reading This view gives you the maximum amount of space on the
screen, giving you more room to review and comment on the content. Note,
however, that Full Screen Reading view does not display the document as it will look in
print—that’s the job of Page Layout view. By default, when you first begin using Full
Screen Reading view, the functionality is limited to only reviewing and commenting. If
you want to be able to type and edit in Full Screen Reading view, click View Options
in the upper-right corner of Full Screen Reading view and choose Allow Typing.
