Cannot Delete Extra Page At End of Document!

Hey guys,
I'm having a problem with Word 2007. I created a resume from a
template that I downloaded from the Word database and it created an
extra page at the end of the document that I absolutely cannot delete.
I've tried going into View --> Draft then Home --> Paragraph --> Show/
Hide, but it won't let me delete the page break. I've also tried
highlighting the page and pressing delete, but I can't seem to
highlight the second page without highlighting the text on the first
page and therefore I cannot delete the second page without deleting
the first. Any ideas? This resume is part of my application to law
school and I need it perfect. I can't have an extra page in the
document with nothing on it. Thanks!

Re: Cannot Delete Extra Page At End of Document!

I'm assuming the résumé uses a table. Note that a Word table is always
followed by a paragraph mark, which may insert an extra page if it doesn't
fit on the same page as the table itself. To verify that this has indeed
happened, press Ctrl+Shift+8 to display nonprinting marks; paragraph marks
display as ¶ symbols.

Here's how to get rid of the extra page: Select the paragraph mark after the
table and format it with 1 pt of font size, zero spacing before/after (and
as hidden text, too, if necessary). If you press Ctrl+Shift+8 again to hide
nonprinting marks, the blank page should disappear.

For more on blank pages, see

Hey, thanks for the reply. I followed your directions and made the
paragraph mark 1pt size, but after I hit ctrl + shift + 8 again, the
page still remained. If I select the 2nd page there's now a tiny 1pt
blinking cursor, but I can't seem to delete the page.

If 1 point isn't small enough, then you need to make it Hidden.

And if it's still not working, make sure to turn off the options to display
and print hidden text (Office button | Word Options, Display category:
"Hidden text" and "Print hidden text" respectively).

For more, see Suzanne's article.
