    Highlighted Page Numbers (Word 2000 SR-1)

    In the print layout view of Word, my page numbers were always dimmed. I recently must have done something to inadvertently make all of the page numbers appear highlighted. I cannot find how to make the page numbers appear dimmed again. Any ideas? Thanks. Robert Storms

    Hi Robert:

    In page layout view, anything typed in the header or footer of a page will be visible, but appear dimmed. If you go to View/Header & Footer, then document text will appear dimmed.

    What I'm guessing that you did is to put page numbers at the bottom of each page of the document, rather than in the footer. Then they will appear darker (which is what I assume that you mean by highlighted).

    Go to View/Header & Footer, press the down arrow to go to the footer, tab to where you want page numbers, & use the toolbar to enter the page numbers. Then you can go back to the main part of your document & delete all the page numbers that aren't in the footer.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Phil,
    Thanks for the reply. Your idea doesn't work. My page numbers are top right, inside the header. They are highlighted in black, and appear just as highlighted text would appear. This change also appears to be a default setting, because every one of my documents appears this way, as well as new documents that I create. What else can you suggest? Thanks. Robert

    Perhaps something like this?

    Tools, Options, chnge "Field Shading" from "Alwaays" to "when selected"?

    Great! I thought that was just a long shot too.
