    In the example below it will be seen that text refuses to extend beyond the 6 inch mark on the horizontal ruler and that there are no none printing signs that appear to be causing this. Suggestions please as to how to make the text extend to the 7 inch right margin before wrapping to the next line. Thanks Dave.

    Look for a borderless text box

    The text is simply the answer given to get one out of the room which I copied and pasted into a Word Doc for the putpose of sending it to friends if they fail to achieve the task. Cheers Dave.

    Check your column settings -- I have a version of Word that opens new documents with a one-column setting of 6", and I've never figured out how to override that default. You can see it better in print layout view (if "text boundaries" are set to show). It looks like it has a 1.5" right margin even tho the margins are all set to 1". Just re-selecting one column, in the column settings, fixes it. (I added the columns button to a toolbar so it could be done quickly.)

    Just confirming that Judy's suggestion seems to do the job in fixing the posted document.

    Judy, with regard to changing the default behavior, did you open up to your Normal.dot to check whether it was stuck with that setting for some reason?

    Try selecting all the text then drag the right margin to the left about mid-page. While the text are still selected drag the right margin marker again back to the original right margin position.

    Thanks Judy...hitting the One column option instantly extended the lines of text that obviously did not have a "Return" symbol
    shown. I suspect it has something to do with the set up of the computer on which the document was created.!!!!! Cheers Dave.

    Thank you, Gary, I can't believe I never thought of that, and of course the column setting could be fixed in Normal.dot, permanently (and now has been). I feel like such a dork!

    Don't feel like a dork - you did after all come up with the solution to the original problem!
