    Advance to a certain position on page (XP)

    In Word Perfect I was able to advance to a certain line on the page. For instance, if something on page 10 was located at 1.8" I was able to use an Advance feature on other pages to get to that specific spot. Any ideas?

    I don't understand and sadly, I don't remember. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Can you use a hyperlink to navigate to the desired location? The cross-reference feature might be able to handle it, or you can manually set a bookmark and then link to that.

    Have you tried:
    Ctrl + G | Page 10
    Ctrl + G | Line <???>
    Although two steps, I think that's what you are trying to achieve.

    Are you looking for an "ADVANCE" field code, to force text to a certain position down the page?

    Insert menu, Field Code, Advance. The vertical distance is expressed in points. (12 for a standard line, 72 for an inch).

    I deleted my previous offering as goto line +20 simply advances by 20 lines at a time. Doh. Try this macro:

    Sub gotoline()
    '
    ' gotoline Macro
    ' Macro recorded 10/26/2006 by Rex W Last
    '
    Selection.GoTo what:=wdGoToPage, which:=wdGoToNext
    Selection.GoTo what:=wdGoToLine, which:=wdGoToNext, Count:=20, Name:=""
    End Sub

    If you are at the beginning that goes to page 2 line 21 (Hmmm) then page 3 line 21 and so on. Presumably this could be tarted up to go to the beginng, then on page 1 to line 20, and then down the rest of the document.
