    Print Layout View problem (Word XP)

    I use print layout view and have my page setup for 1 inch margins (T, B, L, R). However, when I see my document on the screen, it does not appear to have a 1 inch margin at the top. Instead, the text begins at the very top of the page. The print preview shows it correctly and the page prints correctly. WHat can I change to fix this so the document will show the 1 inch margin on screen in print layout view?

    Thanks, Don

    Are you looking at it in print layout with the text boundaries turned on? (which show you exactly where the margins on in relation to the text).????

    No. I did not have the text boundries on. However, if I do turn them on, the boundry is right at the top of the page also. It is as if Word "thinks" it is showing the top margin correctly but it is not.

    Any special paragraph formatting that could be pushing the text up into the margin?

    I found the problem

    It turned out to be a feature called "show/hide white space in print layout view".

    You can save screen space in print layout view by hiding the white space on the top and bottom of each page and the gray space between pages.

    Move the insertion point to the top or bottom of the page and click the Show White Space or Hide White Space button.
