disconnect & reconnect external monitor
Authored by: cjmilne on Feb 21, '06 11:28:06AM

I've got the same issue with a 12" PB & minimizing the doc doesn't fix the display problems with Word. I have discovered however that if you open the Word doc without the external monitor connected (or if you disconnect the external monitor while the doc is open) & then reconnect the external monitor the document no-longer displays any glitches on scrolling the window with either keyboard or mouse wheel/ball. The problem returns for any new documents opened on the external monitor. I've submitted a bug-report to Apple.

Note that I've never seen this with Preview, only Word.


12" PB operating in lid closed configuration with an external CRT, USB keyboard & mouse (MS Intellimouse/Mighty Mouse), Word 2004 (050714)
