    Word 2003 opens a 11 x 9 vs 8.5 x 11 blank doc and/or template.

    Hi,

    Word 2003 opens a 11 x 9 vs 8.5 x 11 blank doc and/or template.

    Please see 1,2,3 images below. Any ideas on how I can get back to size letter size format?
    Looks like the truncated normal.dot does not include headers & footers.

    A) Word 2003 has been updated with SP3
    B) normal.dot has been deleted and replaced several times.
    All to no avail.

    cheers,

    There's an option called "show white space", and you have it set to not show white space -- which includes the space between pages and the headers and footers.

    Click Tools > Options > View. In the Print and Web Layout Options group, check the box for "White space between pages (Print view only)" and click OK.

    Alternatively, position the cursor on the gray area between two pages, so the cursor looks like two boxes containing arrows, and click. Be careful not to click there again! (In later versions, it takes a double-click instead of a single-click to change the option, because too many users hit it by mistake.)

    You need to open your normal.dot template and make the change there to show the headers and footers. You probably also need to make a minor text edit (and then undo it) to make sure the save operation actually happens since Word may not bother to save just a viewing option alteration.
