Go to Zoom, click on the 'Many Pages' icon, choose a one-page display, then set the zoom level to whatever you want.
duh.. i already did that, as i indicated. i did not pay $38 for idiotic advice like this
Wow, a simple...that didn't work would have been a lot nicer.
So you have changed the many pages icon?
there is o may pages icon, by the way
there is no many pages icon\
When you click on Zoom...all the way on the right
i know where the zoom button is. if i do anything less than 100% it gives me two pages
I'm going to post what I have here...you tell me if it's not working like this.
The main Zoom control is found on the status bar. The percentage value is the approximate ratio between the size of your document on the computer's monitor versus how big it will be when printed.
To make the document appear larger, on the status bar slide the gizmo to the right (toward the plus sign).
To make the document appear smaller, slide the gizmo to the left (toward the minus sign).
You can use the custom controls in the Zoom dialog box to set document magnification. Simply click the Zoom button to display this dialog box.
The Zoom To section lets you choose specific percentages, as well as options for viewing by page width and text width. You can also see more than two pages at a time by using the Many Pages option.
The View tab contains controls that let you change magnification with the click of a button. The One Page command zooms out so that you can see the entire page on the screen. The text is very tiny, but — amazingly — you can still edit it.
The Two Pages command zooms out and shows two pages on the screen at one time.
The Page Width command sets the zoom level so that you see your entire document from its left to right margins.
Try the View tab, click one page
i have already done this. if i click one page it goes to 71% which is too small
ok one moment
We can try replacing your .normal file.
This may fix the problem.
Before you can delete the file, however, you first must find it. And it's not in the same place on all computers.
It's not uncommon to find multiple copies ofnormal.dot, so wait till the search has finished before deleting anything. When all the files have appeared they can be deleted by left-clicking them and pressing your DELETE key. Alternatively, you can select them and click the toolbar's red X. Or you can right-click them and choose DELETE on the popup menu.
Please note that normal.dot can not be deleted if any Word documents are open. Word must be closed in order to perform this action. After all copies of normal.dot have been purged you can reopen Word, which will go looking for the file. When it isn't found the program will simply recreate it with all of Word's original settings.
