MS Word 2003 has changed the default view of new documents and existing templates.

I am sure that the solution to this problem is to simply click on or change some setting hidden away in the 10th level of some obscure menu - but I can't find it!!

Normally I use Word in "Print View" with a Top, Bottom, Left and Right Margin all visible on the page that I am typing on. (See attached diagram "Correct")

Word is now displaying the page with the Left and Right Margin visible but the Top and Bottom margin are not viewable. (See attached diagram "Wrong")

Even if I open an existing template where margins are set correctly, Top and Bottom have "disappeared" from view.

Anyone know how to fix this?

I think I may know what you are talking about. I attached the same pic with a little red circle. It seems that if you click that and drag down, it will recreate your margins. If you do this and open a new document and it reverts back to the incorrect setting, you may want to edit the normal.dot template to set it permanently to how you like it.

Looks like you have accidently turned on "hide white space"

Move the cursor slowly to the top of the page and when it turns to a double arrow click.

Does that work?

Thanks eric996 and JohnWilson.

John you are correct, it was the "white space". In all the many, many years that I have been using Word I have never used that feature and have never previously turned "white space" off accidently.

Just shows..... you learn something new every day (y)

As my other half says "THAT COMPUTER has done it again ...." I suppose I wouldn't know these things otherwise!

Glad it helped
