place of the heading and the foot of page inside the superior margins and subordinates.
The option of binding is to add a supplementary space of the left-hand side
to be able to connect the document.
In the left lower corner, the option " Pages in towards " can be very
important. This option controls the margins for impressions(printings) " first
side reverse " or for the impressions(printings) on both sides of a sheet. The
right and left margins are transformed into internal margins and outsides.
The option To apply is important too. It's from this option that you apply
the changes that you brought to the margins or to the other options for all
the document or only from the place where is the cursor at this moment. If you
use the option " From this point ", it forces the addition of a jump of section.
This option is very important for the structure of your document. It's explained
in detail on the page of the other
on the Paper tab.
From this window, you can change the size(format) of the paper as well as its
orientation. It's especially necessary to pay attention to the size(format)
of the paper. Some notice too late that they have the bad size(format) of paper.
Generally, the size(format) of the paper is in " A4 " when it should be for
the size(format) " US Letter ". The size(format) A4 is the one that is used
in Europe and not in North America. make sure to have the right size(format)
before continuing or even beginning a new document. Otherwise, you'll not
only have to change the size(format) of the paper but also the presentation
of your document.

the computer take charge automatically of the food or to change it if your printer
has several tubs of papers or for an printing on some special paper. Unless
a special need, leave the options with " Tub by default ".
Under this tab, there are several options to control the arrangement of the
text on the page. From these, there is a place of the debuts of section. I
don't see the advantage of this option because you may insert a jump
of section any time and the necessary type from the Insert menu.
The options in the category of Headers and the feet of page are more interesting.
They are used when you print first side reverse. For example, the place of the
numbering of pages can be different on an even page that on an odd page. With
the option " different Front page ", the heading of the front page of your document
can have supplementary elements such as the corporate logo and the address of
the company. This heading will not be on the other pages of the document. You
can put the another heading for the rest of the document.
The option of vertical adaptation brings the advantage of power to centre vertically
the contents of the page. It's now useless to try to centre manually. This
is very advantageous for the page an picture, but not titles of the document or
for a page with a table or for a common page. The option "Height"
is generally used for the rest of the document.
To end, there is an option for the numbering of rows. It is rarely used,
unless being paid among rows of text.

the page where is the cursor at this moment, the block of text that you selected
or certain pages in your choice.
Sometime, you don't want to print a document completely but
only a couple of pages. The last option of the section on the area offers you this
possibility. It's necessary just to know that you must put a semicolon (;) between every page or block of page. It's necessary to put a hyphen (-) between the first and the back page of a series of pages to be printed.
There is a small example at the foot of the window. In this example, you could
print pages 1 , 3 , 5 - 12 up to and including as well as page 14 of your document
(1; 3; 5-12; 14).
You have also the control on the number of copies that will be printed. This
is practical if you have to print a document for several persons for a report,
a committee or a meeting. leave the option with " assembled Copies ". Otherwise,
you should replace in order all the pages of your copies.
