Question Scroll page to keep line being edited in the middle

Any ideas how to keep the line being edited in the middle of the Word window, instead of at the bottom?

I'm typing up a load of manuscripts and it would be much easier to keep the "focus", i.e. the line being typed, in the middle of the window. I always find myself right at the bottom of the window, just above the horizontal scroll bar.

Hi Stefan,

That's not a setting that can be changed. About the best you can do if all you want is the text in the middle of the screen is to move/resize Word's window to occupy only the top part of the screen.
