    So I'm taking notes in Word, and when I get to the bottom of the current window, the screen won't actually scroll down until I make my next line break, in other words cutting off the bottom half of the bottom row of text that I'm typing. It looks weird and is hard to edit this way. How do I force Word to scroll down "earlier" in the process of line-breaking down the document.

    Here's an image of what I mean:

    You see how that bottom line of text is getting cut off? Shouldn't Word have automatically scrolled the Window down when I reached THAT line?

    Has no one experienced this before? It's incredibly annoying to be typing and not be able to see what's being typed on the current line of the screen.

    I tried it in Word 2008 and Word 2011 using both print layout and draft views. Did not repeat for me.
