Disappearing Ruler


R

Ross Payne

In Word 2003, I always like to have the horizontal ruler showing. However,
when I start Word, it's not on the screen and each time I have to hit View,
Ruler. And then when I start Word again after having closed the program,
same thing. Is something amiss? Thanks,

What's amiss is that Word 2003 tends to have a mind of its own when it comes
to the Options settings. Previous versions were not as bad in this regard.
The answer would be to set up the environment each time with auto... macros.
At the moment mine is behaving itself with just a few of the options forced,
but I am tempted to set everything. The following are what I am currently
using. The settings should be self evident. If you don't know how to use
macro listings - see http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm

Sub Autonew()
ActiveWindow.ActivePane.DisplayRulers = True
With ActiveWindow.View
.Type = wdPrintView
.Zoom.Percentage = 100
.FieldShading = wdFieldShadingWhenSelected
.DisplayPageBoundaries = True
End With
CommandBars("Reviewing").Visible = False
End Sub

Sub AutoOpen()
ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveDocument.FullName
ActiveWindow.ActivePane.DisplayRulers = True
With ActiveWindow.View
.Type = wdPrintView
.Zoom.Percentage = 100
.FieldShading = wdFieldShadingWhenSelected
.DisplayPageBoundaries = True
End With
CommandBars("Reviewing").Visible = False
End Sub
