MSWord lines per page

Fanus
 

Hello list
I am from the old school and I loved Word Perfect in the days of MSDos. My
problem is that I have to use MSWord now and for some reason I only get 26
lines of text per page. Even if I change the font to Regular Normal and the
size to 10. With WP I was used to 54 lines of text with a top and bottom
margin of 1. Can someone please explain how to use MSWord to get more text
on a page without making the font so small that it becomes difficult to
read.
Kind regards
Fanus

Hi all:

To fix the problem, go to the Home ribbon and as you tab across the ribbon you should find the setting for show markers; its probably going to be set on so activate it and it should close the problem.

I’m sorry I can’t be more specific as I’m currently using my Mac and away from a windows PC. If you can’t find it, give me a couple hours to check it.

Thanks to those of you who responded to my previous query about JAWS. I’ve been trying the demo but discovered an annoyance that only happens in Word. When I hit the spacebar in a document, JAWS creates a space marker instead of showing an actual space. These markers show up on my braille display and are read by speech. Is there a setting I can tweak to get rid of them? Thank you in advance for any help.

Re: Olympus digital recorders?

Joe Giovanelli <joegio100@...>
 

Good Evening,

One can set the time and date on the DM-720. I was unable to set either AM or PM.

This is a great voice recorder but if the right menu choices are made, it can be one of the finest sound recorders. It can record the lowest organ tones and the high frequencies associated with the various gadgets used by percussionists.

Hi,

Most in the dm series have voice feedback as does the ls-p4 one model which allows you to even set the time with voice feedback if you are concerned about such. I hope that helps.

Windows 10 microphone help needed

Steven Johnson
 

Good day everyone.  I have a headset from Dragon NaturallySpeaking with a microphone on a gooseneck attached to it, plugged into the computer with a 3.5 mm jack.  I have had trouble with low levels from the mic although the microphone volume in sound settings is cranked up to 100%  When I looked at my input device under sound settings, my microphone is shown as “line in,” with no choice for a microphone.  When I unplug the microphone from the computer and plug it back in, Windows doesn’t ask what kind of device I am plugging in like it did back in the Windows 7 days.  My problem is that of low sound levels from the mic, and I am wondering if my computer thinks that my mic is a line-in source.  Any thoughts are appreciated.

Hi.

Someone gave me a second gen victor. It won't charge; it won't do anything.
I'd bladly send it to one of you techies who would like to play with it for
your own benefit.

I could give it away on the give-away list; but I don't want it to go to
just anyone. I'd like its home to be someone who would get a bang out of
playing with it before he (or she) throws it away.

I only have one. If this is not permitted, I'll never do it again, promise!

Hi Mike,

Just as in past versions of Windows, you must display the status bar under the menus for it to show up.
With the ribbon menu, highlight the view tab, then navigate to the folder options item and press enter and then under the view tab, move to the advanced list of items and check the box that says: 'show the status bar.'

Hi Mike,

Are you talking about the status bar in Windows Explorer or This PC?  If so, and if you are using NVDA, the hotkey insert + end key will not read the status line.  You can easily read it by using screen review (insert + keypad 7) and then move to the bottom of the screen with shift + keypad 9.

Hi All,
 
I need to make a correction to my post.  Yesterday and this morning my Win10 computer wouldn't read the customary info when pressing the keystroke, Insert + Pagedown, with Jaws or NVDA.  Well, I went looking in the View menu to see if the Status Bar was checked / turned on, and didn't find a Status Bar option, so I assumed the Status Bar option was gone after not finding it anywhere else, except in IE11.  I rebooted the computer a few different times and for whatever reason the keystroke, Insert _+ Pagedown, wouldn't read the info it's supposed to read.  Well, MS Support told me this morning that the Status Bar doesn't show as a Toolbar in the View menu in Windows 10, and the, Insert + Pagedown, keystroke started reading the info it's supposed to read while on the phone with MS Support.  Folks, I swear, I'm sober!  LOL  LOL 
Oh well, sorry for bothering y'all and I'm just glad whatever gremlins that were there are now gone.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.
