    As it is now, proofreading a document on screen is very difficult. I
    currenly print out a document, proof it, mark all the errors, and then go
    back and fix it. This is both wasteful of time, ink, paper, et ergo money.

    I think it would be enormously helpful if you could preview a document in
    proofread mode. What I'm suggesting is a virtual rulter, or other inch deep
    straight line (pure black would work fine, there is no need for mesaurement
    marks) which spanned the document and could be moved down line by line via
    the enter or the down arrow key.

    Helen,
    You should post this question in one of the Word newsgroups. This newsgroup
    is for MS Access, the database product.

    Helen,

    I hope you look back here....

    There is a low vision aid Magnifier that is freely available; from
    Microsoft It should do what you want although not as elegantly as
    you''d like. I believe I found it by looking into accessability
    features.

    Good luck,
