Hi Joel Walter. Welcome to Geeks to Go!

Is the last page blank? Do you know if there are sections setup?

Usually you can put the cursor at the end of the text and use the Delete key to delete everything after the where the cursor is. If that doesn't work, arrow down to the very end of the document, past all the white space, then use the Backspace key.

Hi Joel Walter. Welcome to Geeks to Go!


Thank you

Is the last page blank? Do you know if there are sections setup?


The last page is blank, and I have section breaks in my document, but I dont seem to have one for the last page, however the page before the blank one is landscape layout & the all other pages are portfolio layout.

Usually you can put the cursor at the end of the text and use the Delete key to delete everything after the where the cursor is. If that doesn't work, arrow down to the very end of the document, past all the white space, then use the Backspace key.


I dont seem to be able to do this, could you explain a bit more?

When using Sections, it can get a little tricky to remove that last blank page. Try changing the top/bottom margins for that last landscape page, to see if you can get rid of that last blank page.

Put your cursor somewhere on that last page, then click File, Page Setup, and decrease the top and/or bottom margins slightly to see if that can remove the extra page. Be sure to save your document before making any changes.

Yes - put your cursor on the last page you want to keep. Changing the margins sometimes will take the last blank page away.

Try changing the last section break from "Next Page" to "Continuous". Be sure to save your document before making changes.

Also, see this Link that gives information on working with Sections. Try following the instructions for "Merging Sections" at the end of this document.

You didn't create this document, did you?

To change the type of break, you must insert a new break and delete the existing break. To better see what's going on with the document, change the View to Normal (View menu, Normal).

I created it but I was following instructions when I did the section breaks (it was the first time I have used them)

I found an easier way, by selecting the page of landscape and choosing to have this section as landscape. thank you for your help
