I purchased a form over the web and printed that generalized version out from the site. I imported that document into my WP for editing purposes, as the seller's site suggests.

Once I got the document into WP, the text no longer flowed to the margins on either side of the page. I have checked and changed everything I can think of......even tried using "negative" margin numbers! Checked paper size, orientation, typesetting, etc. The reference lines down the sides change, but the text won't move with them. No text is actually touching either margin.

The copy I printed from the seller's site looks like any ordinary text document.....everything in proper order.

P.S. Perhaps I should add that my time at the seller's site has expired, so they are no longer of any help.

I'd be thankful for any ideas on this.

Hi,

Have you tried saving the form as ASCII DOS text and re-opening as WP, ie:

File
Save As
File Type ASCII DOS text
Save, keeping the txt extension after Naming your file
Close
File Open
Selext txt file name
At prompt, accept conversion

Although you may lose some forms features, such as graphics and whatever technicality is giving you the problem, you should retain the text.

Let me know.

Thanks and Happy Boxing Day.

:D

Hi,

Thanks for your suggestion. I printed out the instructions so I'd be sure to do it correctly, but it didn't seem to have any effect on the document.

I decided to do what I had been putting off.....I simply started at the beginning and typed up a whole new document. I worked off the original copy, and modified as I went!

This brings up another WP question.....now I have several different versions of that same document that show up when I open up WP and click on "File". I'd like to delete the ones I'll no longer use, but can't find a way to do it!!

Thanks again for taking the time to help,
Pam

Hi Pam,

To delete a file in WP, select:

File
Open
Highlight Name of File to Delete
Right Click Mouse
Highlight "Delete" From Drop Down Menu
Left Click

Your file should be gone.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

It worked like a charm...I kept trying to delete files from the drop-down list that appears when you first click on "Files". Absolutely doesn't work from there!

Thanks for the help,
Pam
