No. of pages in a Word doc

I don't mean adding page numbers to the actual Word doc itself, but the display at the bottom of the screen which tells you how many pages your document fills - or at least it did, before I started fiddling about with various settings. I renamed normal.dot, set the page margins and font to what I wanted as the default, which is fine, but seem to have lost this bit.

It's got to be something so obvious...

Thanks

If you have renamed the normal.dot file then Windows will automatically create a new normal.dot file. Whether this has deleted all your previous settings I am not quite sure?

The only reason I can think of for renaming the Normal.dot file is if it has become corrupted in some way.

Have you checked that View, Print Layout is set?

Other than that I'm none the wiser:-(

recap - yes, it created the new template with my new margins & font. I'll have another go.

I am Spartacus - yes, I've tried every conceivable view.

It's very odd, isn't it? I'll leave this open for a while

I think that what you want is Tools - Options - View tab and in the Show box make sure that Status bar is ticked.
