Part II: Formatting Documents > Formatting the Page Layout, Alignment, and Numb...

Chapter 13. Formatting the Page Layout, Alignment, and Numbering

  • Set margins

    In Word, you can set margins for the entire document or, using sections, you can set different margins for different parts of the document.

  • Control text flow

    Avoid breaking paragraphs and pages at inopportune places.

  • Use sections to support different formats within one documents

    If you need portions of the document formatted in two columns while others are formatted into three columns, divide your document into sections.

  • Create headers and footers

    To place repeating information at the top or bottom of every page, use headers and footers.

  • Paginate your document

    You can insert or remove page numbers and control page number appearance.

Of the four levels of formatting—page, section, paragraph, and character—page layout is the broadest. Page layout often encompasses formatting choices that affect the entire document—for most documents, page layout choices such as margins and page size do apply to the whole document. In a change from tradition, however, Word 97 also enables you to apply page-level formatting to portions of the document known as sections.
