    scroll box

    When dragging scroll box up or down, the text does not move with the scroll box. It jumps to new point when mouse button is released. Where is this feature controlled. Need to see text scroll as move the scroll box up or down.

    Hi Sam,

    I take it you are working with Word 97?

    You can add the functionality of LiveScrolling via the Registry. To do so,

    In the Registry drill down to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice8.0WordOpt ions

    and add a String value using the following:
    Value Name: LiveScrolling
    Value Data: 1

    Also, here is a macro that will take care of the Registry entry if you do not wish to edit the Registry directly:

    Sub AddLiveScroll()
    System.PrivateProfileString _
    ("", "HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoft" _
    & "Office8.0WordOptions", "LiveScrolling") = "1"
    End Sub

    If you do not know how to use the above macro:
    - Go to Tools/Macro/Macro
    - Type AddLiveScroll for the name of the macro and click "Create"
    - Copy the lines between Sub and End Sub, then paste them in your new macro
    - Place your cursor in the lines of code and press <F5> to run
