I'm struggling to get a new project to mimic the formatting of an existing project. I'm hoping someone can help.

My old project has space around the "page" in the default view and shows visible breaks between pages. (desired-look.png)

My new project is just one big scrolling, full-width, white background edge-to-edge mess. (new-project.png)

Both projects are in novel format. New project was imported from a Word document.

I'm beating my head against the desk. Any thoughts are most appreciated.

And as soon as I posted this I found the answer: View > Text editing > Show Page View
