The phenomenal surge of personal computing that began in the 1980s introduced the concept of a “paperless” society, but 20 years later, the world has yet to realize that ideal (as plenty of buried desks and bulging file cabinets can attest). For the most part, people continue to rely heavily on printed matter. When you work in Word, you’ll probably need to print information frequently. In most cases, printing a document requires you simply to click the Print button on the Standard toolbar—not a complex task. However, as a more experienced Word user, you might want a higher level of control over your print jobs—especially if you want to do more than simply print single copies of entire documents. For example, you might want to print selected sections of a document, print more than one copy of a document, print several document pages per printed page, print a series of related documents, or print a summary of the formatting styles or markup used in a document. Fortunately, the printing options included in Word give you this additional control over printing—and that’s what this chapter is all about.
