Hide white space


E

Earl Kiosterud

My top margins disappeared, making it look like the paper is only 9" in height, not 11, in
print layout view. The margin was up against the top edge of the paper in the ruler at
left, and couldn't be dragged. I could find absolutely nothing in the menus or toolbars to
control this.

I finally discovered that clicking a double-up/down-arrow icon that appears when hovering at
the top edge of the paper in this view would restore the full page. Where the hell is this
in the menus??? It's a useful feature, but makes Word more of a "You gotta live there"
program, where the street signs are missing, but all the locals know the them, so who needs
them? Why is it so hard to find something like this when it's happened? What's the matter
with microsoft? (Rhetorical, of course).

I see nothing about white space on the View menu. It's on the View tab of
Tools | Options, however.

I could have sworn that it was in the Show/Hide Group on the View Ribbon -
but as usual you are correct. It must be my perfect logic taking control of
me thinking that Show/Hide White Space would be included in the Show/Hide
Group: the group even has a space for the button that is currently wasted.
The more I use W2k7, the more disappointed I am. It just so far off target.

I was replying from the standpoint of Word 2003; the OP's reference to menus
and toolbars suggested he was not using Word 2007.

It's far from new though.

Thanks, Suzanne. I'd hope something new like that would be where you
could see it as you worked, not buried in a big dialog box. Maybe a
button on the status bar would have been nice. Anyhoo, now I know.

Well, you do get the ScreenTip when you mouse over the page break.
