I have recently re-installed Word 2003 on my Windows XP2 OS. In Print View I now have four 'margin markers' - right angles a bit like crop marks - at each corner of the page. They do not print out but I would like to get rid of them, as I didn't have them before. I have tried everything I can think of on the Options menu but nothing seems to control these marks.
It`s definately that toggle. Mine shows the dotted area and in each corner is a "crop L shape" which disappears when I untick the box.
Under Help on the menu try a detect and repair. Reboot the computer. If this doesn`t work it will be a corrupted normal template. Have you customised your normal template much? If not we will need to delete it (or rename it normal.old) and let Word restart and create a new one.
To quote from Eric10's link: "These crop marks (or margin marks) automatically appear when you install support for an Asian language. The only way to remove them, is by removing the support for all Asian languages... There will probably be a reason for it, but which remains unclear to me. You just have to know."
I had tried all Taff36's suggestions, and then finally uninstalled and reinstalled Word, when it was my settings in Proofing Tools all along. Simple when you know!
Nice one Eric10 - never heard of that one before. Duly noted. I hadn`t noticed your post because I spent the time checking out Word 2003 and just posted back without refreshing the post - two lessons learnt!
