Can I set mirror margins in Word Online?

If you’re familiar with the desktop version of Word, you know you can use mirror margins to set up facing pages for double-sided documents, such as books or magazines. Word Online preserves mirror margins already in your document, but it doesn’t yet provide a way to add them.

If you have the Word desktop application, click Open in Word to open the document and create the mirror margins.

When you’re done and you've saved the document, you can edit the document in Word Online, and it will preserve the mirrored margins.

To learn more, see Set mirror margins for facing pages in Word for Windows. If you don’t have Word, you can try or buy it in the latest version of Office now.
