Revision Marks Shifted Right Beside Thick Bordered Box

PSS ID Number: Q42875 Article last modified on 11-02-1994

5.00 5.50 6.00


The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for MS-DOS versions 5.0, 5.5, 6.0


The revision bar appearing outside of a thick, boxed or left bordered paragraph will shift right from its normal position in Microsoft Word when seen in print preview and when printed.

Steps to Reproduce Problem

  1. Start Word.
  2. Turn on revision marks and select a revision bar for left, right or outside.
  3. Enter a paragraph and format it with a thick box.
  4. Enter a second paragraph for comparison. (Do not format this second paragraph for a box.)
  5. Print or preView the document.

Note that the paragraph formatted for a thick box is shifted right.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Word versions 5.0 5.5 and 6.0. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.


This problem occurs only when using thick, boxed, or left lined paragraphs.
