Default Word is displaying my "compatible" docs as blank!


Help.

I have a whole bunch of Word documents that are displaying as blank pages.

It seems to be only the ones that are titled as "compatibility mode."

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

- Rob

I have seen some documents display blank when opened in Protected View, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

What, if anything, do you see in Print Preview? If you display nonprinting marks, does that make a difference?

Great question, Stefan, thanks. I'm reassured because the Print preview shows all of my text exactly where it's supposed to be, and in the proper format. Still completely baffled as to why the "Print" View is doing what it's doing. And interestingly, I still see the footnote right where it's supposed to be!

Perhaps the screen isn't refreshing properly? Have you tried changing the zoom or pressing PageDown, PageUp? Updating the display driver might help in that case...
