    Word 2000 page layout view (Word 2000)

    I changed a setting that in my Word 2000 program. Now when I open a new document in page layout view, the page shows a grid covering the whole page. I'm not sure how I did this & I need to shut it off. The grid lines are very distracting. I went to the Microsoft Knowlege Base, did a search for "normal.dot" changed the file names as instructed & reopened Word. Sure enough the grid lines are still there. Help <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15> !

    You don't, by chance, have Gridlines turned on, do you? On the Drawing toolbar, click Draw and then Gridlines. I think in 2000, you can turn it on and off. I'm not sure, though, 'cuz I skipped that version.

    I'm glad it worked. I was holding my breath it wasn't something more serious. But, I've found, it's always best to start with the simplest possibilities. Like in the movie "Slingblade", after several men tried unsuccessfully for hours to start a mower, the character who was not the sharpest tool in the shed discovered, "It ain't got no gas!" <img src=/S/woops.gif border=0 alt=woops width=58 height=36>
