    Insertion Point Misbehavior (Word 2003 SP1)

    In one of my templates the insertion point is no longer a flashing vertical bar; it is a flashing period. What could I have done to cause this misbehavior? And how do I return it to normal?

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Try setting the zoom percentage to 500%, then back to 100%. Does that help?

    Yes, it did! You're a genius. But why does it work?

    I don't think anybody knows why it works, I guess somebody found out by accident, and posted it in the newsgroups. That's where I learned it.
