Page Setup Dialog: Margins & Orientation

The margins and orientation section of the Page Setup dialog is where you specify the margins and the orientation of a page before printing. Any changes you make to the margins' size, to their units of measurement, and to the page orientation of are instantly previewed in the preview area. You can control the size of each margin individually.

Note: The option to change the page orientation is offered here purely for preview purposes—the setting you choose will not be carried to the printer prior to printing. To change the default page orientation, go to File > Print or look for the Printer Properties dialog. Keep in mind that the Print dialog varies somewhat across platforms; the Printer Properties dialog varies between printers and across platforms.
