Chapter 3. Printing with Precision > Setting Printing Options

Setting Printing Options

In addition to the options available in the Print dialog box, Word offers a number of other printing options, some of which are discussed in more detail earlier in this chapter. You can find these print options by choosing Tools, Options, and then clicking the Print tab, or by clicking Options in the Print dialog box. Table 3-2 summarizes the options available in the Printing Options section (the top portion) of the Print tab and Print dialog box.

Table 3-2. Printing Options
OptionDescription
Draft OutputPrints a document without formatting and graphics (as described in the section “Printing Draft Copies,” on page 104).
Update FieldsUpdates fields before printing. For example, when this option is selected, date and time fields will be updated when you print.
Update LinksUpdates links to other documents before printing. For example, if a linked document has changed, the linked content will be updated before printing.
Allow A4/Letter Paper ResizingEnables automatic switching between standard 8 ½-by-11 paper and the narrower, slightly longer A4 paper size used in most countries. This option is selected by default.
Background PrintingEnables you to continue working while print tasks are being processed (although you might notice a slight slowing in response times as you work). This option is selected by default.
Print PostScript Over TextPrints PostScript code (such as watermarks or overprinted text) inserted in a document on top of the text, not underneath it.
Reverse Print OrderPrints a document in reverse order, beginning with the document’s last page.
