The normal template in word has shrunk, how do I restore it?

For some reason, the view of the normal template in word has shrunk, and I

can't seem to restore it to it's proper size. The view that comes up is of a

page that is smaller than the print preview, surrounder by a huge grey area.

I like to type in page layout view, as I type accounts and need to see how

they look and their position on the page.

Does anyone know how to get the normal template back to a readable size?

    • Change the zoom setting -

      http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/General/SaveViewAndZoom.htm

      or

      You can control the zoom with auto macros in normal.dot. The following will

      set it to 100% zoom regardless of what the document thinks it should be.

      Change the 100 to any preferred zoom level. I have included also some of the

      other regular problem fixes, but you can remove the extra lines if required.

      If you want normal rather than print layout view swap the apostrophe from

      the beginning of the line where indicated to the other.

      See http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm

      Sub AutoNew()

      ActiveWindow.ActivePane.DisplayRulers = True

      ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.ShowAll = False

      ActiveWindow.DisplayHorizontalScrollBar = True

      ActiveWindow.DisplayVerticalScrollBar = True

      With ActiveWindow.View

      '**********************

      .Type = wdPrintView

      '.Type = wdNormalView

      '**********************

      .Zoom.Percentage = 100

      .DisplayPageBoundaries = True

      End With

      End Sub

      Sub AutoOpen()

      ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveDocument.FullName

      ActiveWindow.ActivePane.DisplayRulers = True

      ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.ShowAll = False

      ActiveWindow.DisplayHorizontalScrollBar = True

      ActiveWindow.DisplayVerticalScrollBar = True

      With ActiveWindow.View

      '**********************

      .Type = wdPrintView

      '.Type = wdNormalView

      '**********************

      .Zoom.Percentage = 100

      .DisplayPageBoundaries = True

      End With

      End Sub
