    Switch to Pg Layout View - redux (Word97 SR/2)

    Hello -

    Me again, with a similar query as my initial one of a few days ago: When in Normal view, working with tables, and I want to delete a border, I receive

    If your tables are inline, then this shouldn't happen. I think there's something wrong with your normal.dot. Try the steps suggested in <post#=197827>post 197827</post#>.
    Hope this helps,

    Phil -

    Thanks for the post. You had mentioned inline before: in Word97, is there a choice?

    Thanks.

    I don't have Word 97 to test, but unless you put it inside a text box, it should be inline. Nevertheless, I would try the steps in the post that I mentioned.
    Cheers,

    Phil -

    I just tried deleting border lines on another computer running Word97 and got the same message.

    Perhaps there's someone reading this who has Word97 and can say if they get this message too, or if I do need to delete my Normal.dot.

    Again, thank you.

    Why don't you experiment? Instead of deleting Normal.dot, just move it out of the Templates folder, then start Word and see what happens. That way, you can move Normal.dot back to the Templates folder later on, or copy styles/macros/toolbars/autotext entries from it using the Organizer.

    Hans -

    Good thinking! Shall indeed try that, and report back.

    Thanks for the idea.

    Hans and Loungers -

    I did as you suggested, moved the current Normal.dot from the Template folder and let Word build a new one.

    Sadly, I still get that message.

    Thanks for the idea.

    In that case, try the other steps in Phil Rabichow's troubleshooting guide.

    I'm late to this party.

    How are you deleting the border? Format>Borders/Shading>None>OK ? Or some other method...

    Morning, Jefferson -

    I'm using the Tables&Borders Toolbar:

    Using the Toolbar, the first time I make a choice, i.e., double upper border, I get the switching message; If I hit Cancel, I can, as I

    I think Jefferson's onto this. When I use the toolbar & a fancy border in Word 2000, I get switched automatically to Print (Page) Layout view. Apparently, Word 97 is more polite. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> If I use the "default" borders, I don't get switched.

    Re: Switch to Pg Layout View - redux (Word97 SR/2)

    The only time I find that toolbar useful is when I want to change the vertical alignment of text inside cells. I turned it on and tried to select No Borders. I got the behavior Phil described, auto-switched to Print Layout view, but I couldn't figure out what to do with the "pencil" once that button was pushed in. I think I'll stick to the old fashioned way. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
