    Mysterious dot (Word 2003. XP)

    I have been working on a 400 page document for several months. A mysterious dot has appeared near the top and bottom of every page, at the position of the LH margin. It is not present in normal view, but it is in print layout view and print preview. It also prints (otherwise it would not be a problem). I have not been able to remove these alien dots.

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Could you create a copy of the document, strip out everything except with one page (which may contain dummy text) and attach that to a reply?

    Do you have some hidden text in a header and footer? If so, and if your print options are to include Hidden text, it would appear in Print Options and on the Print itself.

    To check for hidden text go to Tools | Options | View and select "Hidden text" amongst the Nonprinting characters choices.

    Thank you very much, Hans; but Gfamily (A lateral-thinking genius! Thank you, Gfamily) has solved it.
    Brilliant website.
    Thanks again.
