Hi , what version of word are you using?
Hi , what version of word are you using? ex. 2000, 2003, 2007 , 2010 ?
It's Word 2010
ok, i think you have the "display gridlines" option checked. give me a moment and i'll tekk you how to turn it off
ok, if you click on "view" at the top of word, there should then be a checkbox for "gridlines" uncheck that box if it's checked and the lines should disappear
let me know if this worked for you.
i attached a screen shot so you can better see the box to uncheck and the "view"tab you should be in to see the check box.

That was it John. Thanks much. Why didn't I think of that? - feel somewhat foolish, except that Word 2010 is very new to me, after years with Word 2003. HOw I got the display gridlines checked I don't know, but thanks for your quick help. I can stop being annoyed now by this effect.
