I guess, but am not sure, that this effect (empty lines disappearing) only
occurs, if several Word documents are opened. The Word files are not linked,
nevertheless possibly it cannot be excluded, that sometimes operations, which
are done in a document, affect also another one.
I have no idea, why this may happen, it is just a hypothesis - not yet
This phenomenom I have observed since working with Word 2007, too. The
documents are .doc files, i. e. compatible with previous Word versions
Concerning the last posting reply:
Where can the option "Show White Space" be found exactly, i. e. which menu
In the Print View of Word 2007 I did not find anything like it.
