Default help with full screen mode in Word07

I'm taking a night school course to get a higher degree. In class
today, the school had upgraded the computer in the classroom to Word
2007. I had been asked to help scroll a document on the screen while
the teacher was talking as she showed us various mistakes past
students had made on papers.
The problem was that not everything she wanted on screen was page-
alligned. In Word 2003 this wasn't a problem, as it defaulted to
something similar to the mode you had it in.
Not so in Word 2007. Instead, it acted more like the more recent
versions of Adobe Acrobat Reader ( 4) and would only display a page
at a time.

Is there any way to get the full screen mode to behave like the older
versions of Word? I could use full-screen mode to get the menus and
formatting controls out of the way while showing continuous pages in
Word 97 and 2003, but I can't figure out how to do this in Word 2007.

I'm trying to get something like "single page-continuous" in Acrobat,
or the "normal" "print view", or "web view" in Word 2003 that lets me
display the end of one page and the beginning of the next on the
screen at the same time while in full-screen mode as it did in the
previous versions.

So, how do I accomplish that, or did they force you to display only
one page at a time in the new, "improved" version?

I apologize for not using any new terminology, but here at home my
trial version of Office 2007 expired, and I simply replaced it with
Office 2003 from my previous computer.

Try print layout view and double click one of the tabs to minimize the
ribbon.

Default help with full screen mode in Word07

I expect what you need now is Full Screen Reading View. If you look at the
icons to the right end of the Status Bar, it is the second View button. In
FSR view, you will get an arrow along the top of the screen for turning
pages.

If that doesn't work out for you, you can minimise the ribbon the ribbon by
double-clicking any of the Tabs or use Ctrl+F1 (do the same to toggle them
back into view). You can also move the Quick Access Toolbar to above the
Ribbon by right-click and select that option: this will give you a little
more vertical room for your display.

Finally, you can change the zoom level using the commands on the Status Bar.

And hiding the white space between pages also helps in this sort of
situation.

Default help with full screen mode in Word07

In this "full screen reading view", can I display a paragraph on the
screen that has half the sentences at the bottom of page 2 and the
other half of the sentences at the top of page 3?

It was child's play in Word 2003.

That's really what I'm trying to accomplish, while minimizing the
amount of screen real estate junked up by the ribbon and other
controls. Heck, that was the main reason it wasn't done in a
PowerPoint.


The problem is that I can't try any suggestions until Monday as I
don't have Office 2007 at home, unless there's a way to reinstall the
(expired) trial version without disrupting my current install of
Office 2003 under Vista 64. I don't have anything to install it with
either.

In FSRV, you can display two full pages side-by-side.

Default kb shortcut

I cannot find a button for this function in Word 2010; however, the keyboard shortcut for "full-screen editing" mode still works.

Alt-V, then U.
