Show top and bottom margins

If you're reading in Print Layout view and the top and bottom margins appear to have been cut off, that means the option for hiding the white space between pages of the document is switched on. You turn that option off the same way you turn it on.

  1. Point to the top or bottom of a page until the pointer becomes a double-pointed arrow, and then double-click.
