I'm still missing Page and Ln as active ingredients of the status bar. What I get, when I open a document (old or new), is a character count, which I don't want. What i get when I move the cursor over the greyed-out Page and Ln is 'Go to', which I don't want either. How do I get Page and Ln to carry out what I've always thought of as their normal function of simply teling me where I am in the document?
Sorry - I'll stick to this thread till I get an answer. I have just tried Detect and Repair and it makes no difference. I presume that the Page, At and Ln facilities (which I'm used to from Word 2000) are available in XP, so where are they? All I get is Sec and Col.
