Default Setting to keep writing centered on page by lines

Hi, I've seen various non-answers to this question, so thought I'd try here to see if anyone has a solution.



Is there a way to set Word's autoscroll-during-typing to a position other than the last line on the bottom of the window, or bottom of the monitor if using the program full screen? Or any macros or hacks out there that would achieve something similar?

I would like to keep the line I am writing centered on the screen, in full-screen mode, for ergonomic purposes. Right now, I keep scrolling up with the mouse wheel whenever I hit the bottom to re-position my mouse. And I don't like the esthetics of just re-sizing the window so the bottom of the smaller window sits half way up my monitor.

There must be code telling it to start autoscrolling when it hits the bottom. Can this be modified to tell it to start at 12 or 15 or 20 lines from the bottom?

As you should have realised from the 'non-answers' you say you've seen, Word has no capacity for keeping the line you're typing on in the middle of the window. The nearest emulation of that you can get is to split the document window and type in the upper portion. You can move the split up/down according to preference.

There is nothing of that kind exposed to any configuration option or that can be used in VBA.
