PUB2: NORMAL.PUB Can't Control Show/Hide Ruler Commands

PUB2: NORMAL.PUB Can't Control Show/Hide Ruler Commands

Q103121

-------------------------------------------------------------------
The information in this article applies to:

 - Microsoft Publisher for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a
-------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY
=======

You cannot control the Show/Hide Rulers command by modifying the
NORMAL.PUB file.

MORE INFORMATION
================

Appendix A (pages 365-370) of the "Microsoft Publisher User's Guide"
describes how to use a file called NORMAL.PUB to set default settings
for Publisher commands. Page 369 states that NORMAL.PUB can control
the Show/Hide Rulers command on the Tools menu. This is incorrect. If
you set the command to Hide Rulers in NORMAL.PUB the rulers will still
appear. Other commands that you set in NORMAL.PUB will execute as
expected. (Show Rulers is the default for new Publisher documents.)
