Stop a Table cell in Word from growing

It's report time again and teachers are having to work with new report formats. If it has been created in Word the cells need to be individually set so that they won't get bigger as you type more.

Click in the cell, go to Table- Table properties. Click on the Row tab, go to Row Height is and change it from 'at least'  to 'Exactly'

To show or hide margins in Word

Those 'grayed out' lines around your page are officially called 'Text Boundaries. Sometimes they can just appear like magic and you have no idea how they got there.

To Remove or Add Text Boundaries
Go to Word in the menu bar, click on Preferences -View and deselect 'Text Boundaries' if you do not want them to show, or select it if you do want them to show.
