         margin symbol. The page margins will appear as dotted lines
         on the document.

      2. Move the mouse pointer to the page number. As the pointer
         moves over the number, it will change to a cross hair.

      3. Hold down the mouse button and drag the cross hair into the
         gray area around the page.

      4. Click once in the gray area outside the pages; the page
         number will disappear.
