Previewing pages before printing

The normal page view in Writer shows you what each page will look like when printed, but it shows only one page at a time. If you are designing a document to be printed double-sided, you may want to see what facing pages look like. Writer provides two ways to do this:

  • View Layout (editable view) —see Chapter 1 (Introducing Writer).
  • Page Preview (read-only view) —from which you can also print multiple pages onto one sheet of paper.

To use Page Preview:

  1. Click File > Page Preview, or click the Page Preview button Image:PagePrevIcon.png. The Writer window changes to display the current page and the following page, and shows the Page Preview toolbar in place of the Formatting toolbar.
  2. Page Preview toolbar.
  3. Click the Book Preview icon Image:BookPrevIcon.png to display left and right pages in their correct orientation.
  4. To print the document in this page view, click the Print page view icon Image:PrintPgViewIcon.png to open the Print dialog box. Choose your options and click OK to print as usual.
  5. To choose margins and other options for the printout, click the Print options page view icon Image:PrOptPgViewIcon.png to display the Print Options dialog box.
  6. Print Options dialog box
    Print Options dialog box.
