    Normal template ignored (Word 2003)

    New documents default to zero top margin even though Normal.dot has 1 inch top margin. Deleting and replacing Normal.dot, changing top margin to 1 inch in the new document and setting that as default is ignored when I open a new Word document.

    Re: Normal template ignored (Word 2003)

    Are you sure that the headers/footers are not hidden from view? In Word 2003, Page Layout view can show/not show the header/footer/white space. This may give the user the mistaken impression that the body text is hard up against the top of the page. Try clicking between two pages to toggle this option.

    Thanks! I used that document and the last suggestion worked just fine. It turned out to be a registry issue. Many, many thanks!!!!

    Thanks for the suggestion, but it was a real, not percieved, issue solved by a registry cleanup.
