How to Show Text Boundaries in MS Word?


When you install MS Office on Your Computer, by default there are some settings that may need to be changed due increase to your convenience. 

The most common problem for every user is to show text boundaries in MS Word after installing Microsoft Office Pack. Text Boundaries show the printable area for text so that a user can easily  understand the layout of the page. 

By default, MS Word shows no text boundary in the document. And this is very bothering personally for me. So, in this post, I'm gonna show you how to set text boundaries in MS Word document.



For Office 2000/ XP/ 2003 Users: 

  1. At first open MS Word. 
  2. Then go to the Options under the Tools Menu and hit on the View Tab. 
  3. Now at the bottom of the window you will see an option named Text Boundaries
  4. Now simply place a Check Mark on Text Boundaries. Your Problem gets solved!
