bleeding text in word doc

  L.S.D 20:52 26 Sep 2003

I am finding a blue-tinge on my text in my word doc!.
This can be seen after I use Bold,Italic, underline mode`s.
This does not happens to all the words on the same line, just a few, and not allways in the same place.

Have you tried "Detect and Repair" from the Help menu?........ if you're using MS Word, that is, L.S.D

and graphics card you are using.

Also possibly your viewing angle, and whether you wear glasses (varilux - bifocal - astigmatic -long/short sight etc)

opening an old document, one that was created before this started happening.... bold/italic/underline something in this. Does it happen in this document as well?

If it doesn't then I would suggest something weird has happened to corrupt your standard template, which is called ""

If you have customised this at all, rename it, (So you can get your customisations back if the following step doesn't work), then restart Word. This will force the creation of a clean "" Start a new doc and see if it continues to happen. If it doesn't problem solved... if it does... hmmmm?

There is also the possibility that you have managed to set your font colour to a dark blue. Depending on what shade, and your monitor settings, it is not beyond possible that it is only apparent after going bold/italic/underlineing.

I suppose a virus would be capable of achieving this.. have you scanned?

You say you can't do a repair as you don't have the disc... I'm out of options now!

I hope you find a solution from somewhere!

Good luck,

thanks again for all your help.

One, not too serious, question: Does your moniker have any significance in this?

The next thing is that you'll be querying,

"thc"s moniker
