Exclamation Office 2007 -- problem with multi page viewing

I am using office 2007 and windows vista.



I got a new monitor today 23' and when I open word if I set the zoom to 100% it shows me two pages on the same screen. I find this very aggravating, and would like to just disable multi-page viewing. I have done some searching around and have been unable to find any solutions. I am wondering if perhaps a work around may be to have word run in a different resolution? Although I am not sure how to do that exactly.

Does anyone know how to do this or a solution at all? Thanks so much in advance!

Hi Sn0w,

Have you tried using the 'one page' display setting?

Hello

I have indeed, what it does is shrink the zoom to 80%, and if I increase that at all it splits the page again.

I have found that if I do not maximize the window and manually size it i can keep one page only, but as soon as I make the window a certain size it splits it.

I'm quite sorry -- I did not realize this -- I did mention I looked around but should have been more specific. The link you pointed out is the only other place I have made the post. One poster there did suggest a macro solution; which I will try tomorrow I have been very sick the last few days and away from the computer.

Hello again, sorry for the long delay I have been busy with finishing my courses for the semester. I have tried that solution but found the macro coding a bit confusing, I did make some progress and I have updated the post on the microsoft site. I will repaste that information here as well

This seems like it could work, I tried it out a bit today but it is a bit over my head, is there any more in depth guide that could be posted? I find it a bit confusing

EDIT: I made a little more progress, I am able to have only one page displaying, but there is a blue space beside it of equal size to another page, in other words it is still splitting, but just not displaying the second page so I have a mass of blueness beside the page. I could probably live with this, but it is still quite obnoxious to become accustomed to, any insight would be deeply appreciated.

Hi Shay,

You could increase the zoom percentage from 100% to, say, 125%. Here's a macro I've developed. In addition to setting the zoom to maximum of 125% (less is used for documents that won't fit in that area - eg landscape A3 pages), the macro does a few other things: defaulting to Page Layout view, displaying the rulers and displaying the document's full path in Word's title bar. You can delete the code for any of those you're not interested in.
Code:
Sub AutoOpen()
With ActiveWindow
  'Reduce flickering while changing settings
  .Visible = False
  'Switch to Print Preview mode
  If .View.SplitSpecial = wdPaneNone Then
    .ActivePane.View.Type = wdPrintView
  Else
    .View.Type = wdPrintView
  End If
  With .ActivePane.View.Zoom
    'Set for a 1-page view
    .PageColumns = 1
    'Initialize for best fit
    .PageFit = wdPageFitBestFit
    'Test zoom % and reduce to 125% max
    If .Percentage > 125 Then .Percentage = 125
  End With
  'Display the Rulers
  .ActivePane.DisplayRulers = True
  'Displays the Document Path in the Title Bar
  .Caption = ActiveDocument.FullName
  'Restore the window now that we're finished
  .Visible = True
End With
End Sub
To use it, simply add it to Word's 'Normal' template: it runs automatically every time you open a document.
