Tick or untick "RULER" in "View"

Just tried it and I get the same thing! Restore brings it back and then you can change view to full screen and it remains.

Very strange! Never noticed this before but then I rarely use ruler.

Further messing about shows that the ruler disappears when you minimise from restore too. Again changing to full screen brings it back.

how do i solve this strange problem?

Don't minimise the window? Instead, use the Show Desktop icon or use Alt + Tab to switch between different programs.

In the bottem left hand corner of the screen there are four little icons representing the layout of the screen you are viewing. Select the third from the left "Print Layout View", you will then see the ruler. I always use this view as it's wysiwyg.

Wierd - I went to check I was using Print Layout View (I was) and now I cannot recreate the problem. All I did was close down Word and then re-open it.
