Set gutter margins [MS]

A gutter margin adds extra space to the side margin, top margin, or inside margins of a document that you plan to bind. A gutter margin helps ensure that text isn't obscured by the binding.

  1. Go to Layout > Margins.

  2. Select Custom Margins.

  3. In the Gutter box, enter a width for the gutter margin.

  4. In the Gutter position box, click Left or Top.

    Note: The Gutter position box is not available and determined automatically when you use the Mirror margins, 2 pages per sheet, or Book fold option.

Add a gutter margin for bound documents

A gutter margin adds extra space to the side, top margin, or inside margins of a document you plan to bind. That helps ensure that text isn't obscured by the binding.

  1. Click Layout > Margins > Custom Margins.

  2. In the Gutter box, enter a width for the gutter margin.

While Word for the web will honor a gutter margin set in Word for the Desktop, it only supports changing the Top, Bottom, Left, and Right margins.
