Default Ruler scale and paper scale out of sync

The ruler is shorter than the paper. I have a huge r-margin in the print view
(blank). The ruler is normal scale, but the paper is way large. Looks like
the paper and the ruler are out of sync. The track changes had been used by
the previous author. Funny how much "stuff" this guy created. I have to
revise his "stuff" daily, there's always something new. You don't know how
tricky Word is until you revise an amateurs work (actually uses spaces
instead of setting tabs). I'm sure this is another Microsoft glitch. Funny
how I used Word Perfect in the late '90 and never had any problems and could
even make the boarders on the top row of a table larger than rest of the
table. It tool Word years to allow you to split cells. Even today Word tables
are totally unreliable. You do a little cutting and pasting and before you
know it the formatting of you table is garbage, and theres no fix.

Fix:
Tools, track changes, (it opens tool bar) accept all. Paper size snaps back
to normal. Another hidden Word landmine.

Another fix, which doesn't lose the record of tracked changes, is to open
Tools Options Track Changes and set the Use Balloons dropdown to
"Never".

What you saw was not a change of "paper size" -- it was making room in the
right margin to show the balloons. It is, as they say, "working as
designed".
