    Top margins not there (2003 SP3)

    Lately when I open a Word doc, no top or bottom margins are shown. There is nothing to grab and drag down. The side margins are shown. I am in Print layout view.
    If I select the Menu item: View ‘Header and Footer’ then double click the body part of the doc to go back to editing the body of the doc, the top & bottom margins are then shown as they should be.
    How can I get Word to open as it used to, showing the top and bottom margins?
    Regards,
    Peter

    You say this happens when you "open" a Word doc. What happens you open word to a blank new document?

    In either case, do you still see the vertical ruler?

    What happens if you position the cursor under the horizontal ruler (actually top or bottom of the page) and when it says "Show White Space" click the button? See screenshot.

    This is to save screen space in print layout view; it toggles between Hide White Space & Show White Space when clicking at the top or between pages.

    You will also find this setting at: Tools | Options... | View tab | Print and Web Layout options | White space between pages (Print view only).

    I can't believe I'm that dumb.
    That did it, thanks
