Hi:

For starters, it would sure help to know: what version of Word is it and what architecture (32-bit or 64-bit)?

Thanks,
MM

Hi:

Thanks for the info.

It looks as if you are having a lot of trouble with your computer (9 open, working topics started in just the past few days)???
They sound like a mixture of both hardware and software problems.

If so, it might be less confusing & more efficient for you (and for everyone else) if you were to perhaps consider focusing on one or two high-priority issues first.

Having said that, I've never heard of the issue you describe. It sounds as if it could be a hardware issue with your keyboard. Perhaps try a different keyboard?

On the software side, you might try a repair of Office 2007.
This tutorial is for Office 2010, but I think the basic steps would be the same:
Office 2010 - Perform Repairs

Let us know how it goes.

Thanks,
MM

Regarding your Word issue, help me better understand the problem. As I currently understand, when you begin typing a word ("Sevenforums" as an example) sometimes:
  • "Sevenforums" is written out left-to-right aligned to the LEFT page/column margin (thus expands left to right and "reads" left to right)
  • "Sevenforums" is written out left-to-right aligned to the RIGHT page/column margin (htus expands from right to left but "reads" left to right))
  • "Sevenforums" is written out left-to-right aligned from the CENTER of page/column (thus expands left AND right from the center and "reads" left to right)
Is this correct?

Regards,
GEWB

Wierd indeed. I'm at a loss. As MM post above, try another keyboard and see what happens.
