    Dear Techguy,
    Thanks a lot for helping me out.
    I have an essay due and this is constantly happening:
    (http://img223.imageshack.us/my.php?image=msoffice2007jm6.jpg)
    This is without any changes to format - page layout, font, paragraph or anything else
    Now I have a 6 page essay which has magically become 7.5 pages.
    Microsoft's website was no help and I googled some keywords but nothing.
    Maybe one of you gurus could help me out.
    Thanks,
    Officoholics anonymous

    Welcome to the forum.

    I thought this was dejavu we were just talking about this a few posts down. ;) Here is the topic and what has been posted so far. If you e-mail me your file and post here that you have done that, then I will take a look at it.

    Here's a quick fix though it may reduce your text size slightly. Select all the text in your document, then keep Ctrl key pressed down while tapping the left [ (bracket) key. Tap the key just once at first and this may very well to the trick, try it once more if not and so on. Do all this slowly to allow word to update the display. If you find you have reduced the text too much then press down Ctrl key again and tap the right ] key to enlarge it again.
