Word 2003 page setup question - help appreciated

Bert Coules

After using Word 2000 for many years I was recently given a copy of Word
2003. I've installed it and set the default paper size to my usual A4, but
when I open the program (into print view), the page displayed is clearly not
A4 - or perhaps it's that the top of the paper is out of view: if I start to
type, the words appear at the very top of the displayed page. In 2000, what
I saw was an obvious A4 sheet complete with top margin.

How do I make 2003 behave like 2000 in this respect? Any help will be
appreciated.

Stefan, thanks very much for that. I was completely puzzled.

So far at least, I haven't discovered anything about 2003 which makes me
prefer it to 2000. Quite the opposite in fact. But I'll probably
persevere.

I'm glad I could help!

Actually, I think you will notice that Word 2003 is more stable than Word
2000.

Perhaps I've just been lucky, but I've never encountered instability
problems with Word 2000, under either Windows XP or Windows 7.

You wait 'til you upgrade to one of the more recent versions where they've
totally effed up the Menubar and you spend more time trying to find things
in it than doing the writing, then you'll have problems.

I've noticed quite a number of 3rd party apps are now crawling up the MS
rectum and changing to Ribbon toolbars, luckily some of them have put in a
config option that'll switch it back.

What you may ask has that got to do with anything?... Not much. Just
having a vent... after being forced to use one of the more recent versions
of Word again.

I hope I never have the need to do so. I tried 2003 merely out of
curiousity but see no reason not to stay with 2000.

Actually, what I really prefer is WordPerfect. But perhaps that's not a
suitable topic for this particular group.
