Highlight the bit you don't want and delete it...

go to the end of your text and press "delete" (NOT BACKSPACE) repeatedly. Sometimes, people inadvertantly press the return key then click the mouse above it, leaving rows of blank lines underneath the text.

Can you be a little more specific about what/how much is on the pages?

It might have no text on it, but I bet it's full of carriage returns/paragraph marks - which you will need to delete.

To see paragraph marks, select the tool that looks like a large backwards P with a double upright, so ¶ - then you can see what you are deleting.

Click to the right of the LAST letter of text in the above work.

Hold SHIFT and press the END button (above the cursor keys).

This will select all the stuff you cannot see on the blank page.

Then press the delete key.

should be CTRL & SHIFT & END
