Formatting the document in MAC

The default page margin for Microsoft Word documents is 1.25 inches, not the 1 inch normally required by instructors. Therefore, it is necessary to change the page margins of your document. To do this, go to Format > Document. A menu will appear where you can type the desired margin size (Figure 1).

From the same menu (Figure 1), select Layout to customize the layout of your document. Click on Page Setup, and then select the orientation of your document. Click Portrait if you want your document to be 8.5 x 11 inches (most common). Click Landscape if you want your document to be 11 x 8.5 inches. Landscape simply flips the page 90 degrees.
