    computers

    I have an old computer with windows (95 or 97)

    I typed a script at home for a school assignment and that type of format has a lot of indentations. When I printed it from the school computer--oh, boy! The top margins went almost half way down for some pages and the tabs/indentations were wrong. I don't have that problem with a "straight forward format". Does anyone have any suggestions for someone like me (I would need to work UP to computer for idiots! )

    eldee,
    What do you mean by 'script'? What application are you using, Word 97?

    I'll open a trouble ticket for you.... and we'll get right on it!

    Tracylee, aren't you reading my mind? I should have made it clear that it is script writing for a writing class. It's not a technical/computer term.

    The dinosaur, I mean computer at home, might be a 97, but I would have to check to make sure.

    Thanks Tracylee!

    I thought that might be the case based on what you'd said about what you know about computers .

    The dinosaur, I mean computer at home, might be a 97, but I would have to check to make sure.
    The application you use would be Word, or WordPro, or Notepad there are different versions of each and they may vary from home to school, which can cause formatting problems.

    My sister had a margin issue with a document and I had her e-mail it to me. It turns out that it had been set up as a 14" X 14" paper size with huge margins!

    So, it may just be a matter of adjusting the margins and page size, etc. It depends on what you're using.

    Mmm, sometimes the simplest things to check are the first neglected. Thanks!

    Linux is another operating system, like Windows, except it's not as susceptable to the Windows-based viruses. I've never tried it before, but my dad has.

    Linux is stable as a rock. No Windows based viri can take down Linux. There is an introduction on http://www.linux.org/ .
