It is a very long time, Robin, since I have seen fullscap paper. It was longer than quarto but I think the same width.
When I learnt to type, this will show my age, it was on a manual typewriter. In order to centre a heading you needed to count the characters and subtract them from the width of the paper and then halve that amount and press that number of spaces! How wonderful that we can now just select a heading and press control e to centre it!

Is fullscap paper essentially legal sized paper? I have not heard these terms before. I’ll still see people here at work using legal sized paper (8 ½ by 14) to print wide spreadsheets, but not generally for Word documents. I
I trained as a secretary back in the late 1960’s when you had quarto paper (which I think was 40 lines to a sheet) and fullscap, which, and I may be wrong here, was 60 lines to a sheet. This topic has made me realise that it is a long time since I’ve seen fullscap paper and the paper we buy for our printer is certainly quarto.
Glad to hear it Marty. It’s one of the first things I adjust when I get a new copy of Office loaded. The other thing I typically adjust is the default margins, as the default right and left margins set at 1.25 inches seems too wide to me.
Robin, That did the trick. Thanks.

A big change starting in, I think, Office 2007, is that the default document has wider spacing between lines. It’s different from single versus double spacing. This new spacing I’m talking about is a setting under paragraph. The easiest way I know to fix this and make as your default is to do the following.
If you have an existing document that you need to fix, simply select all text with Control A, then follow the steps starting at Step 2.

Why is it that in older versions of MS Word, I could get 41 lines of print on a single page using 12 point times new roman font and now, I can only get 27 lines of print with the same font? I have checked the page size and line spacing and it is the same. I have several documents that were created in Word 2000 and if I save them as Word 2007 docx files, they have more pages. this is true for label sheets that I have also. They used to be 10 labels in a column on one page and now, they are 8 labels in a column with the bottom 2 rows going onto a second page. Can anyone help me fix this mess?
