MS Word / table in footer keeps jumping from left to right

By john.ridge ·
Has anyone experienced this problem ?

I often create a footer in which I insert a table with 3 columns for differen pieces of document information data {file ref ; version ; page#}

Sometimes this causes the whole footer to start to move about on it's own from left to right..... quite rapidly.

Can't find any other references ofr fixes for it anywhere. can anyone offer any insights ?

Why are you using a table?

I recall being able to insert a field into the footer and specify whether you want it left-, center-, or right-justified on a field-by-field basis. Are you making this harder than necessary?

Try the "Questions" forum; the "Discussion" forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

Post problems such as this to the "Question" forum, rather than the "Discussion" forum. There are those who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution, and that's where they go to look for such.

Additionally there are the benefits that:

1) The "Questions" forum provides for your feedback, by way of your being able to mark "helpful" responses as such. This does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but only that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours, so that they might have a ready source of reference available, thereby perhaps obviating the need for them to repeat questions previously asked and answered.

2) The revised TR makes it quite difficult to find both "Discussions" and "Questions" that have not had a fairly recent post, owing to some functions comingling them in the listings. By keeping each type in their respective forums, it is easier for all to find what they are looking for.
