Default Having Actual Typing Area, Only, Show ?

Hello,

Using Word 2007 and Windows 7.

I want to always have my documents set up in the normal, typical manner:

The paper size is 8.5x11
The margins are all around 1"

When I make the ruler visible, I see that the white typing area
(seems to)extends to over 12".

This messes up my printing etc., if I, or someone else, forgets about it.

So, how do I only have the actual typing area of about 6.5" show only ?
Or, perhaps the page boundary of 8.5" only show ?

Thanks,
Bob

Word Options | Advanced tab and under Show Document Content, check the Text
Boundaries option.
