Printing Word Documents

Like other applications in Office 2011, Word provides an assortment of printing options. The steps below discuss the options you’re most likely to use.

To print a Word document:

  1. Open the Word document.
  2. Optional: To print only part of the current document, select that text.
  3. Choose File > Print (Command-P).

    The Print dialog box appears circle-a.jpg.

  4. Select a connected printer from the Printer drop-down list.
  5. Specify the number of copies and range of pages to print.

    The Selection option is only available if you preselected part of the document in step 2.

  6. Optional: To change Page Setup options (paper size, orientation, and paper feed method), click the Page Setup button.
  7. Optional: To set Word-specific options, choose Microsoft Word from the drop-down section menu. Choose an option from the Print What drop-down menu circle-b.jpg. If you’re doing two-sided printing, you can also elect to print just the odd or even pages.

    Choose Copies & Pages from the drop-down section menu to return to the main Print dialog box.

  8. Turn on the printer and click Print.

    The print job is sent to the selected printer.
