    'Normal View' acting up (Word 2002)

    I've recently noticed that when I have a document in "Normal" view, the document on the screen ignores the page margins, and goes all the way to the end of the screen before wrapping. If I make the margins wider or narrower, it shows up perfectly in "Print Layout" view, and it shows up perfectly on a printed copy, but it makes no difference in the normal view.

    It wasn't like this in the past - in Normal view, the line wrapped when it reached the margin. I assume there must be some setting that needs to be changed, but I can't seem to find it. Any suggestions?

    That's the question...

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Select Tools | Options... and activate the View tab (if necessary). Near the bottom, there is a check box labeled "Wrap to window". If this check box is ticked, the width of the page is ignored. If you want to see the width as printed, clear this check box.
