View Full Version : page size and margins in Word 2002

21-06-2007, 08:08 PM
My page size is wider than the ruler above the page. So my right margin is greater than the left one. I have checked my page size (A4) and the margins are the same, yet the text is not in the middle of the page.
Any ideas?

Is your text sitting left aligned or right aligned?

Text is left aligned. When I try to adjust the margins I get the message that the margins I chose (2cm), columns or paragraph insets are too large for the page width in some sections. I just cannot find out where or why.
I have been using the "track changes" which may have something to do with it as it requires a margin to record changes?

Have you checked the printer paper size settings in Windows itself rather than Word? You might need to adjust it there as well.

Trasck changes will not affect the margins, just the display you see. The document margins are unchanged.

Have you been cutting and pasting things?
Some times if you paste in tables etc then expect this type of issue.

Start a new doc, select the problem text, paste it via the 'Unformatted option'...
