Troubleshooting

How to Avoid Accidentally Changing Paragraph Marks Instead of Margins

You may have dragged the mouse pointer when it did not resemble a two-headed arrow. You can control both page margins and paragraph indents from the ruler, and what you change depends on the mouse pointer shape at the time you drag. Hover your mouse pointer over the ruler icon you want to drag, and a ScreenTip tells you which icon you've chosen.

What to Do If Your Section Breaks Incorrectly Add Blank Pages

If you select text before changing margins in the Page Setup dialog box and then choose Selected Text in the Apply To drop-down box, Word creates a new section for the text you selected and starts the new section on the following page. If you already had a Next Page section break immediately preceding this, you now have two consecutive section breaks, each starting a new page. You also have one blank page. To eliminate the blank page, you can replace the first Next Page section break with a Continuous section break.
