EEK! The Ruler in Microsoft Word has Gone?

Ok a real quick little article, may I just say this has absolutely nothing to do with Web Design but will be useful all the same.

I have just had a client say that she has spent weeks struggling with writing word documents because the ruler at the side had disappeared and had to use the “Full Screen” reading mode so that she could see what was gone on.

I am afraid it is one of those really, really simple answer’s, but only if you know it! So here it is:

If your screen looks like this:

Ruler has gone in MS Word ?

Ruler Disappeared in MS Word ?

Step one:

Hover over the top or bottom of you document, until you see this icon:

White Space Icon

White Space Icon

Step Two:

Double click – your ruler should now be back ….   told you it was quick !

We are happy to hear and hopefully help about sticky problems that you may have – either send us an email or comment on a post or post to our Facebook Page.
