Default Document Views in Word 2007

Hello, I'm new here



I'm having trouble viewing my document in Word 2007.

It's a long text document and I use highlighting to mark any text I want to revisit or update later. I usually use the Print Layout view, 100% Zoom for typing and Two Pages Zoom for going through page by page looking for any highlighted bits.

The problem I have is that when I page through the document it chops the bottom of each pair of pages off and shows them at the top of the screen over the next two pages.

Is there a way I can stop this and get it to show me wholes pages, please?

Hi Sue,

It's not clear from your post whether the issue is that pressing PgDn doesn't take you to the top of the next page, or that part of each page is blank and is showing up on the next page. Can you clarify?

Hi Paul,

Aha!

I was about to launch into an explanation of what I see, then I re-read your post and wondered what you meant by 'pressing PgDn'?"

I hadn't been pressing anything, I'd been clicking on the double arrow in the bottom RH corner (and having to click it twice to move to the next pair of pages in Two Pages Zoom).

Hovering the cursor over that double arrow tells me that what it is doing is not actually Page Down but Ctrl + Page Down....

When I press Page Down it does exactly what I want, it displays all of the next page or pair of pages! Eureka!!

For the sake of completeness, what Ctrl + Page Down does is to move the cursor to the top of the next page, but leaving part of the previous page at the top of the screen and part of the new page below the bottom of the screen. Now you know what I was doing I expect you can try it to see what I mean!

Haha, silly me, I wonder what other buttons there are on my keyboard that I never use and that might actually be useful to me?

Thank you very much for taking the time to reply. If you hadn't I might never have found this out for myself!

I've only been using Word for about 20 years, btw...
