Good evening,

With Word XP and Office XP, I'm moving from one page to another and would like to know what page I'm on. The document's pages are numbered but they do not correspond to the actual pages.


I can use the ctrl-G to go to a certain page number, but I can't see anywhere on the screen an indication telling me what page I am viewing.

I'm sure this is hopelessly obvious; that is why I can't find it on the web.icon_rolleyes.gif

Thanks!

Nancy

Check it, and you will have an indicator on a bottom of a Word window.

This shows a page the cursor is on. And when you move a scrollbar without moving a cursor, the page is displayed as you move.
