    Word 2003 options

    Hi, all. I recently reinstalled MS Office 2003 on a new Win7 computer.. love Win7. There is an option I can't find. Guess I'm too used to Office 2007 to remember where it is. BTW, I hate 2007 and the ribbons but that is another conversation. When I open Word, there are "brackets" on the page that I can't get rid of. Would someone be kind enough to remind me where the option is to get of these things.

    Dangit, thought you had it. I remembered that. Unfortunately, it is unchecked. I checked it, restart, then unchecked again, another restart. Still there. *sigh*

    They're crop marks. Before Word 2007, I think you were stuck with them unless you removed Asian language support. See Margin marks or crop marks appear on each corner of the page when you open a document in Word.

    I'll confirm that too. They are crop marks and controlled by Asian Language support.
