    Word Cursor

    Using Word 2000. Adjacent to my I-Beam cursor, often there is a small drawing that generally is made up of a stack of four small lines. Sometimes other strange things, like a plus mark, show up. What's this all about?

    I certainly would include Version/SR info if I had a clue what SR meant. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Means you are in Web Layout View or Page Layout View and cursor is past last paragraph mark.

    Hi Bill:
    The stack of lines next to the cursor means that under Tools/Options (& I think Edit tab, but not sure), you have "click 'n type" enabled. This means that you can type anywhere on the page (it puts in resturns & tabs to allow this.

    The thick plus sign means you pressed Alt+Ctrl+=. The purpose is to add commands to a menu, although I've never been able to figure out which commands it intended to add.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Phil,

    <<The thick plus sign means you pressed Alt+Ctrl+=. The purpose is to add commands to a menu, although I've never been able to figure out which commands it intended to add.>>

    It's a carryover from previous versions of Word. It will add the next command you click or keyboard shortcut you use to the correct menu. For example, if you use press <Alt Ctrl = > and then the "Space Before" shortcut, <Ctrl 0> (zero), under the Format menu you will see the "Space Before" command added.

    Now you can use the <Alt Ctrl -> (hyphen) to remove the added menu item. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    SR means Service Release (I think) and you can find it under Help About.
