Word 2007: Shrink Your Document by One Page

Posted October 18, 2008 by Rob Rogers in Microsoft Word

It always bothers me when I am preparing a Word document and the last page contains only a couple of sentences, it seems like such a waste of the page. Word can attempt to shrink the document by one page by slightly reducing the size and spacing of the text in the document.

1. With the Word document opened, click the Office Orb in the upper-left corner of the window.

2. Mouseover Print and select Print Preview.

3. Using the Ribbon, go to the Preview section.

4. Select Shrink One Page.

Word will attempt to shrink the document. It will either complete or pop-up a failure message that lets you know that Word was unsuccessful. Once completed, close the Print Preview window and save the document.
