Default Bad view when using Find and Find & Replace - Word places found string on top line


In Word 2007 (and I think earlier versions, too), when I use Find (or Find & Replace), the 'found' string (e.g., the found word) is often shown at the very top of the screen (i.e., the top line displayed). This typically makes it very hard to see the context, and I have to keep switching from the Find dialogue box in order to scroll up and see the context of the found word. This obiously 'kills' the convenience of using 'F' to "find next" (and 'R' to "replace").
Is there any way to make Word show at least one line above and one line below the found string?

Hi Paul,

What view are you working in? You might try a different view and/or zoom level.

Hi Macropod,
I normally work in web view at a zoom level of between 80% and 110%.

Hi Paul,

You might get better results in Print Layout view at, say, 100%.

Thank you. It's a bit inconvenient to keep switching views just for this, but if I have a big search run, perhaps less annoying than the issue I described!
Thanks,
Paul
