Adding One More Line

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated August 11, 2016)

Have you ever printed a document, reviewed it, and then wished you could add just one more line to the end of the document? Here's one easy way to do this:

  1. Add the new line at the end of the document.
  2. Save the document.
  3. Select all of the document prior to text that you added in step 1, and format it as white text.
  4. Put the last page of the printout in your printer. Make sure you orient it properly so it will feed through as you want.
  5. Print the last page of the document.

Since white text doesn't print, only the text you added in step 1 (the text you didn't format was white) is printed. When you are done, discard the document without saving.
