How to Print an Outline in Word 2007

By Dan Gookin

Printing your outline works just like printing any other document in Word 2007. But because it’s an outline, there’s one difference: Only those topics visible in your outline are printed.

The Outlining tab in Word 2007

1With your document open, display the Outlining tab.

On the View menu, click the Outline button.

You can choose how much of a document to print on the Show Level drop-down list.

2Choose the number of levels you want to print from the Show Level drop-down list.

For example, if you want to print only the first two levels of your outline, choose Level 2 from the Show Level drop-down list. To print the entire outline, choose All Levels. Whatever option you choose determines what is printed.

3Print the outline.

Select Print from the Office button menu. The outline isn’t printed with any indents, although it’s printed using the heading styles of each topic level.
