How to duplicate a page in a Word document
Word doesn’t have an automatic page duplication feature, but you can still do the job by hand. Follow these steps to duplicate a page:
- Launch Word and open your document.
- Highlight the text you want to duplicate by clicking and dragging with your mouse.
- Select Home > Copy or press Ctrl + C on your keyboard to copy the text.
- Select the bottom of the page you just copied.
- Select Insert > Blank Page to create an empty page.
- Select the empty page.
- Select Home > Paste or press Ctrl + V to paste the copied text onto the page.
If you need to create multiple duplicate pages, you can repeat steps 4–7 as many times as necessary.
While this method does copy text, it may not always keep the formatting of your page intact. You may have to manually readjust the formatting to your preference with each page that you copy. It can also take some time to select all of the text you want to copy by hand.
Duplicate a page in a multi-page document.
If you have a multi-page document, and you want to duplicate a page in Word, you can follow the same instructions to copy the text of your document. Simply select the text from the one page that you want to copy and then use Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V to add it to a new page. You can also use the instructions on duplicating pages in a PDF file and select the specific page you want to duplicate.
Duplicate a page in a single-page document.
Duplicating or copying a page in a single-page document is slightly simpler than duplicating a page in a multi-page document. You’ve learned how to copy a page in Word: simply select your entire document before using Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V to duplicate your text in a new page. The process can be even simpler if you follow the instructions below on duplicating a page after you’ve converted your file to PDF.
Option 2: Duplicate pages in a PDF file easily.
It can take a lot of time to duplicate pages in Word. A faster way to duplicate pages is to first convert your Word document into a PDF file. You can then easily duplicate pages with Adobe Acrobat:
- Launch Acrobat and open your PDF file.
- Select Tools > Organize Pages.
- Select the page you want to duplicate.
- Hold down the Control key and drag the page with your mouse to a new position to create a duplicate.
You now have a page duplicated for you, with all of its formatting intact, not just its text.
