Printing Summary Information

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated September 12, 2015)

In other issues of WordTips you learned that Word allows you to maintain summary information for your documents along with the properties it automatically maintains. If you want to print this information, you can do so quite easily. Follow these steps in Word 2007:

  1. Press Ctrl+P. Word displays the Print dialog box.
  2. Using the Print What drop-down list, select Document Properties.
  3. Click on OK.

If you are using Word 2010 or Word 2013, the steps are slightly different:

  1. Press Ctrl+P. Word displays the File tab of the ribbon, with the Print option selected at the left.
  2. Click the drop-down list immediately under the Settings label. Word displays a number of things you can choose to print.
  3. Click on Document Properties in Word 2010; in Word 2013 click Document Info.
  4. Click on Print.
