I want to view the document under web-layout view mode the same way as we can do in Microsoft Word.

How can I do that?

enter image description here


At this time, there are only two views Print Layout on/off.

Click menu View > Print layout

For viewing a document as a web page the only way is to publish the document, but the published version is read only.

Publish a document, spreadsheet, presentation, or drawing - Google Editors Help

    Print Layout mode is not helping at all; from my side. I've just tried it. – Nam G VU May 23 '15 at 5:11
  • @NamGVU Turning it off removes the margins between pages – wjandrea Aug 27 '18 at 3:40

If the aim is to view more page with fewer margins, the closest work-around is to change the page size to something bigger. This can always be reverted.

  1. File > Page Setup
  2. Take note of existing settings - specifically Orientation and Paper size, such that they can be reverted later
  3. Change the Orientation to Landscape
  4. Under Paper size, select A3 (29.7cm x 42.0cm)
  5. Press OK
