Shrink to Fit

Have you ever encountered a situation wherein you type a letter or a document only to find that the last couple of lines spill over to the next page. This could look rather unprofessional. Wouldn't it be nice to have the overflowing text adjusted onto the same page? So what do you do? 

U could spend time reformatting your document  or you could use the Shrink to Fit feature of Word. It is available only in the Print Preview mode. To access it switch to Print Preview mode. Locate the iconic button (tool tip - Shrink to fit) and click on it. Word will automatically reformat the document in order to adjust the overflowing text onto the same page. Word does it by intelligently reducing the font size across the Styles currently used in the document. So be sure to look through the formatting once again before printing the document.
