You can also do one of the following:
View page margins
The page margins appear in your document as dotted lines.
Note You can view page margins in either Print Layout or Web Layout view only, and they do not appear on the printed page.
I did that. Only the selected text had its margin changed, just like I wanted...But it now puts the selected text on a separate page. It needs the whole page for the selected text. That doesn't work well for me.
What happens now?
I printed. The selected text came out on its own page. Those section breaks were treated by the printer as if they were page breaks.
Why am I trying to set the margins? Because I want quotes to be indented so the reader knows they are quotes.
So okay, let's "apply section breaks". I never heard of that before. How do I do that?
Next Page: Inserts a section break and starts a new page
Continuous: Inserts a section break and continues on the same page
Even Page: Inserts a section break and starts the next section on the next even numbered page
Odd Page: Inserts a section break and starts the next section on the next odd numbered page
Section breaks are hidden from view. To see the breaks switch the document to Normal view or click the Show/Hide button on the toolbar.
The section of the document that you are in at any time can be seen on the Status Bar.
