Default how can I reduce the number of pages needed to print a document

I am new to Word(previously used Word Perfect). WP had a feature called
"make it fit" which allowed you to take let's say a 3 page document and put
in the command reduce to 2 pages. It would automatically change the type
size and/or margins as needed so that you now had a 2 page document ready to
print. Does Word have an equivalent feature? Thanks for any help.

One of the easiest way to do this which works sometimes is to select
the........ Office Button Page Preview then there should be a button on
the ribbon that says, "Shrink to One Page," thus it should try to shrink it
down by changing text size etc.

Hope this helps
