Switch to Page Layout tab.
Under this tool bar, you can set page size, page orientation, unit, ruler and grid, and so on.

Set Layout Grid

Now you need to develop a layout grid which sets page margins, divides your page into columns, and establishes areas to help position your text and pictures precisely.
