    Display Size Changes (2002)

    People,

    I am running Word 2002; & viewing documents on a 19" Monitor. Sometimes when a Word document opens, the viewable area is full width, with text looking . . . well . . . huge. Other times when a doc opens, the viewable area only encompasses about 2/3 of the display, with a lot of empty area on the right margin (both of these phenomenons occur in "Normal View.")

    The viewable size always corresponds to the previously opened document.

    Trouble is, I have no idea how each view size was created.

    I prefer the larger size (which was one of the reasons I went with a larger Monitor); & need to know how to configure Word in order to have any basic document fill the display . . . every time they're opened.

    Thanks in advance,

    I have found that most of the time, the zoom scale is based on the last save of the file.

    Can you read a full line with out turning your head, if not you should not be using such a large display of the file. Twisting your head to read a file is not good for the neck.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Dave,

    I get it . . . it's "Zoom Scale" (for me, "Page Width" turns out to be 166%.)

    Thanks much,
