    Ok, so the other day I installed Offce 2011 to see what it would look like, I removed it and thought I'd just wait until the full version comes out. I reinstalled Office 2008 and since then the layout page for Word seems to be tiny.

    I looked at page layout and setup, tried to change the settings there but it still won't go back to the original A4 size it just stays as this unknown size (under page setup it still states it's A4, but not) I even removed Office and reinstalled again but still the same. Everytime I open a new word document this happens, Excel and Powerpoint are fine - no problems there.

    I've attached a screen shot so you can see for yourself.

    If you have any advice on what to do I'd appreciate it.

    Cheers :)

    It sounds like your Normal.dotm file is corrupted. I would suggest deleting it and then restarting Office 2008.

    You can locate the file here:
    ~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Office/User Templates

    ( ~ = my home folder)
