Hello,

I use Word 2000. The other day while working in a document I accidently hit something on my keyboard and suddenly my page numbers were all shaded gray, the same shade as the gray color on the outside margins of the document (so maybe they just have square holes!). :confused:

I tried playing around with the formatting options for page numbering but nothing works. I can't get rid of it. Every document I open now, even ones that were already saved, now has gray shaded page numbers. :eek:

Can anyone help? It's very annoying!

Thank you!

In Word. Tools - Options - View

Under the Field Shading select the option "never", although I find it useful to have fields shaded to delineate them from normal text. They do not print with shading.
