    units of measure - rulers (Word 2002)

    <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20> I'm looking at a Word XP doc and the rulers are showing "funny" measurements. Where I am 16 cms down the page (as indicated by the status bar), the vertical ruler shows 32 cm. I wanted to modify the tabs in the header, and they are set at 8 cm and 16 cm respectively (or they were in Word 2000!). Word XP is showing 18.9 ch and 37.8 ch - what's a ch??

    My measurement units are set to centimetres.

    Does anyone know what ch stands for and how I set my rulers to show centimetres?

    (I've ordered Woody's Special Edition Using Office XP but it hasn't arrived yet.)

    Added later: And how do I change lines back to points in the format paragraph dialog? ( I want 2000!!! <img src=/S/weep.gif border=0 alt=weep width=21 height=16>)

    Thanks very much - I use 2000 and now 2002. I used the VBE method and it kept those settings even though I exited Word 2002, went into Word 2000 and back to Word 2002 - thanks very very much!!!
