    On one of my computers, the ruler in MS Word 2002 shows more numbers than should be there. It's not showing it in inches. I checked under options, and measurement units is set for inches. It doesn't make a difference if I check "show pixels for HTML features". Instead of just having 8.5 inches, the numbers (all even) go up to 42. When I try and change the measurement units to centimeters or points, it doesn't change. It's like it's stuck in it's made-up numbering system. I've tried doing a Detect & Repair but I still have the problem. Can someone point me in the right direction please? Thanks.
