Setting Default Option in Word 4.00 Page Setup

PSS ID Number: Q39747 Article last modified on 03-07-1997

====================================================================== 4.00 MACINTOSH kbusage

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, version 4.0


To set the default settings in Page Setup in Word version 4.00, do the following:

  1. Choose Page Setup from the File menu.
  2. Set all settings and options that will be for new documents.
  3. Click the Set Default box.
  4. Click the OK button. At this point, the settings are saved in the current settings file. (To see which settings file is currently open, choose the Commands command from the Edit menu and note the document listed at the bottom.)

The new settings will be incorporated for the current document and every new document.

The next time changes are made in Page Setup, remember to uncheck the Set Default option before clicking OK (unless you want to change the default settings again). Once the Set Default option is unchecked, it will remain unchecked until checked again.


Unlike Word versions 3.x, Word version 4.00 uses standardized Print and Page Setup dialog boxes. For this reason, a Set Default button cannot be used as it was in Word 3.x and in the Section dialog for Word versions 3.x and 4.00.
