[How To] Print a Block Of Text in MS Word


Instead of printing the entire document, you can tell MS Word to print only a section.

You have many options when printing in Word. As well as printing the current page only, or a range of pages, you can also tell Word to print an area in the document only. Word calls this a ‘selection.’

So, for example, if you want to print the first paragraph of an Executive Summary, follow these steps:

  1. Select the block of text you want to print.
  2. Click File, Print, and in the Print Range box, click Selection.
  3. Click OK.

Instead of printing the entire page, or set of pages, you’ll print this piece of text only.  A nice way to reduce the amount of paper you print.
