When editing a document on Google Docs, sometimes you encounter a situation where you need to remove or delete a page of text that is no longer needed, what to do? Here are some simple tips to get the job done.

“Blackout” and delete the text

You can easily identify a page in Google Docs by locating the small break that appears at the top and bottom of the page (depending on where the page is in the entire document). If you want to completely delete a document page, you need to select (highlight) all the text on that page by clicking and dragging the mouse pointer over the text. When text is selected, it will be highlighted in blue. As shown below:

After you have selected all the text on the page you want to delete, press the “Delete” or “Backspace” on the keyboard. All text corresponding to that document page will be immediately removed from Google Docs.

Adjust page bottom margin

In case the bottom margin of the page is too large, it can create an “uncouth” space at the bottom of your document’s page. To fix this, you just need to reduce the size of the bottom page margin.

First, click the tab “File” (File) in the menu bar.

Click the “File” tab

In the options menu that appears, click “Page Setup” (Settings page).

Click “Page Setup”

The “Page Setup” window will appear. In the “Margins” (Margin), you decrease the value”Bottom” (Low) down to any value less than current. Click “Ok“when finished.

Reduce value "Bottom"

If page margins are the cause of the problem, this setting will immediately remove the blank page at the bottom of the document. If not, you can try further reducing the bottom margin value of the page. Repeat the above steps and reduce the value a little more.

Paragraph spacing adjustment

This is simply the space between paragraphs of text. Depending on the spacing set, this can sometimes cause a blank page to appear at the end of the document. You can adjust the paragraph spacing to solve the problem.

First, click on the tab “Format” (Format) in the taskbar. A drop-down menu will appear. Hover your cursor over the “Line Spacing” (Line spacing).

Hover your cursor over the “Line Spacing” option

A sub-menu will appear. Click “Custom Spacing” (Custom spacing).

Click on “Custom Spacing”

The “Custom Spacing” window will appear. In section “Paragraph Spacing“Paragraph Spacing”, change the value to “After” (After) to “0, then click “Apply” (Apply).

Change the “After” value to “0”

If paragraph spacing is the cause of a blank page, this setting will eliminate it.

The tips above will help you delete a page in Google Docs. If you need to reduce the number of pages without removing the content, you can try adjusting the font size or reducing the spacing between lines. Wish you have a good document page!
