How to Delete a page in Microsoft Word
When working in Microsoft Word we sometimes find ourselves with a pesky blank white page at the end or even in the middle of our document or you have a long document and would like a quick shortcut to find a particular page to quickly remove it from the document.
Leaving the blank page in your document can look unprofessional or as though the document is not finished, it can also mean a waste of additional paper if the document is ever printed. For these reasons, it’s important to know how to remove a blank page from your Word document.
In this blog post, we will show you how to remove a page from your Microsoft Word document regardless of if it is at the end of in the middle of your file.
Deleting a page from your Microsoft Word Document
- Open Word
- Note down the page number of the page you want to delete (you’ll need this in step 5)
- Click anywhere on the page that you want to delete
- Press Ctrl+G (Windows) or Command+Option+G (macOS)
- Type the page number in the page number box
- Press OK or Go To
- Check you have landed on the correct page
- Select the entire contents of the page
- Press Delete
Merging Word Documents with tracked changes and formatting, the easier way…
If you are looking for an easier way to merge two Microsoft Word documents and need to not only merge the text, but also the tracked changes, comments and fancy formatting, you should start looking around for a tool to help.
There are some amazing new tools on the market today that help us work together in Microsoft Word, tools such as Simul Docs.
Simul knows you need to merge documents with comments and tracked changes, so it was built to make collaborating in Microsoft Word Documents easy.
One of the main reasons we need to merge two Microsoft Word Documents together, with tracked changes is because two very efficient team members have opened the same document, at the same time and made their changes.
You colleagues then each save their edited documents as a new file, leaving you with two updated versions of the same document and no way to easily merge them together again.
Because so many of us face the same issue, Simul Docs created a clean and easy to use software that knows when two team members are working on the same version simultaneously. Saves each version as a separate file, then flags with the owner of the document that there are now two separate sets of changes to be reviewed.
Once the changes have been accepted or rejected, Simul Docs automatically merges everything back into the one document. Saving this as the master and allowing everyone to continue collaborating until you reach the final version.
With the ability to collaborate on your Microsoft Word Document at the same time and zero concern for overriding or doubling up with a colleague, Simul really does take the stress out of collaboration.
Simul Docs also has every version, no matter how small the edit made, neatly saved away for you. Organising the versions in numerical order so they are easy to find. Placing the author’s name above each version for easy referencing and no more _Johnsedits required at the end of each file.
With Simul Docs on your side, you can work together and at the same time. Collaborating is as simple as it should be.
