Default SCALE

This is a difficult problem to articulate. All of the sudden the scale at
the top of all Word docs in Print view is different. The left margin is at
"0", with a number one an inch to the left and the right edge of the paper at
about minus 1 1/4 . The right margin is at the number six and the left end
of the paper is at about 7 1/4. All new and old docs are this way. What
happened and how do I fix it, please.

That's the way it always is (assuming you mean that the *right* edge of the
paper is at 7"). Was it ever different on your machine?

Well, now you cause me to question myself. But I believe that the "0" on the
left side was at the edge of the paper and that the right edge was at 8 1/2.
I can't check but it just looks wrong. Wouldn't that make sense since the
paper is 8 1/2 inches wide? I wish I could insertt a picture of it. Boy, I
got all those rights and lefts mixed up. Sorry. Left edge is minus 1 1/4,
right edge is 7 1/4.

No, the ruler always displays the width of the document body between
margins. Anything outside the margins is in negative territory. So, for
example, you can set a negative left or right indent to allow a paragraph to
extend into the margins.

In Normal view, the left end of the ruler is at 0 because the left margin is
not shown. In Web Layout view, the left end of the ruler is at 0 and the
right end is at the right edge of the Word window. In Outline and Reading
Layout view, the ruler is not shown.

There are applications (Publisher, for one, I think) that use the ruler
differently.
