    Word 2002 Ruler (Word XP)

    I am running Windows ME and recently installed Office XP. The Ruler in Word now shows strange measurements. I have gone to Tools>Options>General and changed the Ruler measurement to Inches; but it doesn't change the measurements. I have tried changing the measurements to Pica, Pixels, Centimeters, etc. Nothing changes the measurements on the Ruler. I un-installed and installed Office XP twice and ran Detect & Repair. Nothing changes those measurements. The width of an 8 1/2 x 11 page shows 50 as the total width.

    Any suggestions will be welcome. Thanks.

    Re: Word 2002 Ruler (Word XP)

    Thank you. I haven't learned how to negotiate this site as yet. I thought I had looked at all the Word postings concerning the Ruler. I tried the "easy" method first and it didn't work for me. However, the original info from the Knowledge Base did work! I was finally able to reset my Ruler to inches and I am a happy camper. Thanks a lot. <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30>
