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. OOo provides a way to do this in Page Preview.

  1. Click File > Page Preview, or click the Page Preview button .

The Writer window changes to display the current page and the following page, and shows the Page Preview toolbar (Figure 21) in place of the Formatting toolbar.


  1. Click the Book Preview icon to display left and right pages in their correct orientation (facing pages).

  2. To print the document in this page view, click the Print page view icon .

  3. To choose margins and other options for the printout, click the Print options page view icon to display the Print Options dialog box. For more information, see Chapter 5, “Printing, Faxing, Exporting, and E-mailingâ€.
