I don’t know of anyone who hasn’t gone to print an MS Word document at one time or another and had a last page that had perhaps only a small amount of text on it. Trying to get your document so you could do away with this page with minimal text can be very frustrating. However, Word 2003 and Word 2007 users actually have a simple way of doing away with the last page of a document that only has a small amount of text on it. They key is that this must be done from the Print Preview window.
Word 2003 – from within Print Preview, click the Shrink to Fit button.
Word 2007 – from within Print Preview, click the Shrink One Page button.
When you select this option, Word makes changes to the fonts to make it one page shorter. If you don’t like what you end up with, simply press Ctrl-Z to undo the changes.
