So what I'm going to talk about in the extension of this lesson is how to customize the look off your document.
And what I have important here is if you remember the section about importing data from other programs, I have ah, one line off
let's say contacts list and I have customized it so it gets printed on Lee. The details I want
now if you go to page layout tab
Ah, sorry. If you go into yeah, to go to page layout tab, you can see the size.
So if I click size, I see it here is a four. The reason why I see a four is because I'm in Europe and I'm using a forest of the flatter format. And then I can go to margins and I can decide with the custom margins forthis document will be
so here. Ah, you see the paper sizes for the print qualities on six on the d. P I. You can click on print preview and get the print preview in pages. So it's going to be like three pages for just for this one line of text
and you don't want it.
first of all. You see that? They're quite a lot of cons there
taking space of almost three pages
and I want them to be
one wanted to be the different. So I will first change the orientation to landscape which will automatically change something. So if I go toe
like, for example here on nice days and print
and you look at the preview now is going to be just too. But it's too much as well.
I want it all on one page.
Ah, and then, Ah,
I go to view abortion.
I can click on page break preview, which is going to show me how this document is going to be actually printed.
And then I find you said this dotted line here
it represents the break between pages.
Now, if I scroll it over here, Dragon drop,
it suddenly becomes just one
And then if I go to
you see, it's all there. The paper is in the landscape for Mitt
And if I go to page set up here,
you can see that it has been scaled to 58%
all of its normal size.
So these are going to be a relatively small letters.
But at least if I print my contacts list, tohave it in paper form
just in case that I don't have my PC next to me,
I can I can access it in paper form and it's going to be visible. It's going to need some magnifying glass, maybe to read for some people. But it's going to be all on one page because the last thing you want when you print it, you know the print order is going to be. It's going to be printing
thesis page on and then Thea other page and then the other.
Kahlan. So it's going to be all messed up and you don't want that.
So, um, this is how you customize
the view off your document. Also, if you remember when we went here, sorry.
When we went to the options
and we went to advanced, we could customize the units.
centimeters of millimeters off for me. I'm going to do it in millimeters,
and then if I can say OK
and then I go to page layout and a click unmarred margins and I go to customize margins like it's going to be in
quite a new usual. So I want, for example, top to be 20 millimeters because it's usual for putting it in the binder. And then I got to get this much space is they want. So I won't left to be 10
and writes to be 10
because I'm going to print on just one side of the paper. I don't care if that toe to have the bottom Arjun the same as the top margin, because I'm going toe punch the holes here. So I'm going to reduce this to 10 millimeters, which is
less than half inch something like 0.4 of an inch. And I don't need food or a tall, so it's going to be zero
I can click. Okay?
And if I go now again to custom margins and I go to print previa,
it's a bit bigger. And if you go to page set up and I can now
increase it a little bit,
and now I'm going to get two pages, but it's still too much. So this is what Axl doesn't do by default.
It doesn't recalculate, so it's still two pages. I have still one con on
the second page. So I'm going to go to Page set up
and reduced to 60%.
And now I'm going to get everything on page. Actually, if you see, I still have some space here left so I could
say here instead of clicking, I can say 62%
and it's going to be pretty much the perfect fit.
So this way you can, uh you can make sure that your documents is customized
that when printed, it gets printed perfectly.
The problem is going to be now if you go to the view and you go to normal view and now you decide toe insert
something like this
and then you go back to page preview.
Now you're going to have this so again, then you would have to scroll this and get it
the other way around. The problem is, now, when you
do this, it won't change anything. So what you want to do
is do this.
and it gets perfectly matched
cause it's going to keep the scaling factor as it was before.
So this way you are going to be able to customize your you're a look that the way your document is going to be printed now, when you look at it that way,
in normal view, it's the same.
But when you look at page layout, it's going to be
visible on. So if you zoom to selection, sorry. If you zoom
you get the full page almost there,
or you can, ah,
and you can. Or you can just select these cells and then you can zoom to selection so that you see everything that is on your page. Margins are not needed,
and that's it. This is how it works.
so this is also one
important thing that you want to customize when you're making a document. It doesn't really matter that it doesn't strictly fall into a category of customizing the interface, but it's actually customizing the way your document is viewed and then
subsequently printed. So in that case, you can you can make it look exactly like you want
