MS Word 2003 - Margins

  Pine Man 19:27 25 May 2006

If I open a new blank document in Word, using the Print Layout view, the cursor is set at the very top of the page 3.17cm in from the left.This is the default left margin.

The top and bottom margins should be 2.54cm but as explained above the cursor is always at the very top of the page and typing can be carried out to the very bottom of the page, where there should also be a 2.54cm margin.

I have checked page setup and it indicates that the correct top and bottom margins are set but they are not shown on the screen.

If I actually type from the extreme top of the page to the extreme bottom of the page and then print it there are margins at the top and bottom of the page.

Why aren't the top and bottom margins showing on the screen in Print Layout view?

You are a star.

I have been playing around on and off all day trying to resolve this problem - and you did it in seconds.
