    Customer of mine has office 2000 on his system. He is VERY particular and has decided to remove unwanted fonts from word 2000. Once he did this everything went to half size ie all the typing and headings on the page etc became small. ie normal 12 his are about 6. Cant get it back to normal even after reinstalling the removed fonts.
    I have no idea why, so any suggestions greatly received.

    This sounds like one for the Ultimate Dreamboat. I know she'll say to start by closing Word, finding all instances of your Normal.dot file and renaming them Abnormal.dot, then reopening word so that it's forced to rebuild the Normal template. (You can't take the fonts out of Word without taking them out of Windows, can you? And why the hell would you want to?

    Did YOU see this user's monitor screen? Almost sounds to me like you took a phone call, you're describing what the user sees, and he's just got Word set to 50% view, LOL.

    But I can't be sure. So, ask him to create a new document. Type something. Click in the text. Hit Format-Text and tell you what the font and size is.
