Use the Page Setup Dialog box to change the margins in a document, to change the paper size, and to change the layout of the document. After calling up the Page Setup Dialog box, you see three tabs: Margins, Paper, and Layout. When working in these tabs, you can apply the changes to the Whole Document, This Point Forward, or This Section.

## Word 2007 Margins tab

This tab allows you to set the margins in the document. You can set the following margins:

• Top: Sets the distance from the top of the page to the first line of text.

• Bottom: Sets the distance from the bottom of the page to the last line of text.

• Left: Sets the distance from the left edge of the page to the start of the text.

• Right: Sets the distance from the right edge of the page to the end of the text.

• Gutter: Sets an additional amount of margin space for pages that are to be bound.

## The Paper tab in Word

This tab includes the following options for setting your paper size:

• Paper Size: Allows you to pick from a variety of paper sizes, including Letter, Legal, and various other envelope sizes.

• Width: Sets the width of the paper and is automatically set when you choose a Paper Size. If you change the value of this field, the Paper Size field changes to Custom Size.

• Height: Sets the height of the paper and is set automatically according to the Paper Size. Changing the height automatically changes Paper Size to Custom Size.

## Word’s Layout tab

This tab has the leftovers that don’t fit in the other tabs, such as the Line Numbers control and formatting sections, headers, footers, and page alignment.
