    Ruler (XP)

    When I open some documents in Word XP, the Word ruler appears; yet when I open others, the ruler does not appear. Any idea why?

    In Word 2002, there is a new feature for the Ruler which is Autohide... it is enabled by unchecking View, Ruler. If you place your cursor near the area where the ruler usually displays, it will appear. This automation occurs when "Provide feedback with animation" option under Tools/Options/General is turned on. If, however, the Ruler is turned on by default, under View, Ruler, then the problem could be due to some corruption in the WordData key in the Registry. Take a look at this article for instructions on recreating the Data key: http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/AppErr...ngMenusEtc.htm
    Hope this helps and good luck!
