 how to shrink 8x14 to 8x11

I was sent a Word doc that is a landscape 8.5x14 page. I
want to print it, but only have 8.5x11 printing
capabilities. Any suggstions? Is there a way to zoom down
the size of the image? Changing the font size won't work
because there are lots of tabs that get thrown off.
TIA.

It depends on what version you have. Word 2000 and 2002 have built-in
options for scaling (in the Print dialog).

What version of Word are you using?

See if this works: File, Print. Under Scale to Paper Size,* choose Letter.

Does that do it?

*If you don't have this option on the Print dialog box, slip out to the
store and buy Word XP.

Okay... if the noted * isn't an option, you can try the following:

1. Select the whole page and copy it to the clipboard.

2. In a new 8.5x11 document window, choose Edit - Paste Special - Picture
and paste the contents as a picture.

3. Zoom to Whole Page and adjust the image size so that it fits comfortably
in the 8.5x11 space. Then print.

Does this do it?

Hi Bill,

If you're in Word 2000 or 2002
you can use File=>Print and set the
scale to Letter size while in Page Layout
the page is set to Legal.

the size of the image? Changing the font size won't work

TIA.
