MS Publisher -set up changes when preview in exp

  robertr 01:14 07 Aug 2006

I have created a website using MS Publisher 2002, all was OK until i setect the "Web page preview" tab, it opens in Explorer but leaves a gap on the right hand side about 3 inches !
I have set the "page setup" to webpage and SVGA.
The only way round it is to extend the text fields outside the background, then previewing again untill correct. Its as if only half the background page can be view in Publisher!

This is not really what you want to hear, but....

Don't make websites in Publisher. Use a dedicated web authoring app.

Agree with ade.h, but if using MS Pub go to File, Page Setup, select Special Size and in the drop down menu under Choose Publication Size select Custom and you can then set your own width and height to whatever you want.

given by the others - MS Publisher is definitely not good when it comes to web sites, although it's an excellent DTP program.
