Re:Word wrapping & such
- Hi Folks
I still struggle with wrd wrap (affects the display) and wrap to column
(adds CR/line feed for printer) and wrap to window, but can't seem to make
any sense of it!
1) I'm typing a doc and all is perfect on the display. After printing, I
get several normal paragraphs and then a one liner corresponding to a
truncated para. that goes out to a margin a mile or two to the right (a
wide window?) Ok, I may have typed in a few invisible ctl characters!!! How
do I get rid of 'em? I can't fix it as it looks ok on the screen. So I add
a hard return somewhere in the first line and get a normal line followed by
a short line and the rest of the para prints normally. Not pretty!
2) probably related to (1): I'm editing a para by adding a line or so and
the line I'm on grows out to the right to the margin of the window and
wraps to the next line, leaving a long line and a short one in the text.
(This is probably a CR added by wrap to col. in my earlier attempts to fix
it) I keep one eye on the col/line counter. The long line ends at 79/116,
80/116 (line 116) and continues on the short line 80/1, 80/2, 80/3 ....!!!!
(Odd numbering convention!)
Documents, properties says: Wrd wrap ON, Wrap to col. 92 OFF (92 is the
print width using Times Roman)
View, options, docs says: Wrd wrap ON, Wrap to col. 75 OFF (75 likely left
over from page width Courier New)
Presumably line 80 is the width of the window on screen? (close enough to
3) I'm typing, the screen is perfect. I print and every line is short a few
words (words missing at end of every line) - too many words per line for
the printer! So I guess I set Wrap to col and the screen puts the overflow
on the next line, so I get a full line, short line, full line, short line
etc on screen. Then I guess I try Modify, lines, join lines and I get one
line per paragraph, each line a mile or so long! Some times it does
nothing, so I select the whole doc with Ctl A and Modify... join lines
again. Looooong lines appear...I tend to give up at this point!
At the end of the day N_T_free does wonderful things that The Evil
Emperor's WP doesn't. It is a jewel! Keep up the good work! Cheers,
