Although you can edit your document in print preview, it is an "exclusive" mode, so you are unable to perform any action that switches focus out of print preview.

For example, you cannot click New on the File menu while in print preview. You must click Close on the File menu before clicking New.


The following options are unavailable (dimmed) in print preview:

   Menu      Commands unavailable
   File      New
             Find File (Word 6.x)
             Templates (Word 6.x, 7.x)
             MRU list (Most recently used file list)

   Edit      Object

   Insert    Database (Word 6.x, 7.x)

   Tools     Mail Merge

   Table     (Show) Gridlines

   Window    Everything

In addition, if you click Envelopes And Labels on the Tools menu, the New Document button is unavailable on the Labels tab.
