I have a document that I frequently update. This document was previously 2 pages but is now contained to one page. When printing, unless I remember to specify to print one page only, 2 pieces of paper go through to printer. How do I delete the second, unused, page in the document?

I sympathize. I looked all through the menus for some way to show 'pages' (so I could delete one) or even a delete-page command. I thought, surely they wouldn't re-create the 'select and delete all the invisible formatting characters' feature of Word. But yes.

My solution: go to "table properties" (either right-click or in the table toolbar), go to the text flow tab and un-check the "Break" box. Also maybe try playing with the "allow row to break across pages" box. Hope that helps!

I had this same problem and finally figured it out. If getting rid of non-printing characters does not work then you probably have graphics, frames or drawing items that are on the page that are invisible for some reason (for example a line that is white on a white background). Use the Navigator (View > Navigator) and then step through each item of each type (graphics, frame, drawing item, etc) and see if there is one on the page that appears to be blank. You will know if it is there because when one of the items is selected it will highlight with the grab points in each corner and be obvious. You can then hit delete. In my case it was a drawing element. When I found it it was actually at the very bottom of the page before the blank one but I knew I had the right one because I deleted it and poof the "blank" page disappeared.
