The information in this article applies to:

When you work with a split-window document in outline view, Word for Windows may turn off Show First Line Only mode. This happens in the inactive pane if you switch the active pane to normal view. However, if you switch to the outline view pane, Word switches back to Show First Line Only mode. In other words, Show First Line Only mode is turned off when the pane is inactive, but it is turned on as soon as you reactivate the pane.
We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
Show First Line Only mode displays only the first line of each body paragraph. In Word 6.0, you can switch to Show First Line Only mode by choosing the Show First Line Only button on the Outline toolbar.
In Word 2.x, do the following to switch to Show first Line Only mode:
- If the document is not in outline view, choose Outline from the View menu.
- Press ALT+SHIFT+F. This key combination toggles Show First Line Only mode on and off.
