Printing a Document

To print one copy of your document, click the Print button on the Standard toolbar.

For other printing options, such as printing multiple copies of a document or a portion of a document, open the File menu and choose Print to open the Print dialog box.

If you have more than one printer, select the one you want to use in the Name drop-down list.

To print only the page on which the insertion point appears, click the Current page option button.


Word assumes that you will frequently want to print one complete copy of your document, so it provides a toolbar button to let you do just that. If you need to customize your print job, however, you'll find all the options you need in the Print dialog box, which you open by issuing the File, Print command. Before you follow these steps, make sure that your printer is turned on.


Printing Multiple Pages on One Sheet of Paper

Word can scale your document pages. To print more than one document page on a sheet of paper, choose the number of pages in the Pages per sheet drop-down list in the Print dialog box.

To print a range of pages, type the desired page numbers in the Pages text box.

To print only a block of text, select the text you want to print before displaying the Print dialog box, and then mark the Selection option button.

To print multiple copies, type the number of copies you want in the Number of copies text box.

When you've made your choices, click the OK button.
