How do I change the default page size?


First, create a new template using the preferred new page size:

  1. Choose File > New > Text Document.
  2. Choose Format > Page.
  3. In the dialog box, choose the Page tab.
  4. On the page tab, select a page size from the drop-down box.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Choose File > Templates > Save.
  7. Choose a name for the new template and type that name in the blank space in the dialog box.
  8. Click OK.

Then, make the new template your default template:

  1. Choose File > Templates > Organize.
  2. Double-click My Templates in the list on the left.
  3. Click on the new template name from step 7, above.
  4. From the Commands drop-down box on the right, choose Set as default template.
  5. Click Close in the dialog box.

The next time you open a new text document, the new document will be based on the new default template.
