The ruler in my Word 2010 application is acting really stubborn. I have reinstalled the entire office suite without any change.
Whenever I
1. adjust a indent,
2. cut’n’paste text, or
3. copy’n’paste text, the command is executed as usual; but the strange thing is that the ruler will either;
1. Freeze up, preventing me from executing any similar commands,
2. A portion of the ruler disappears revealing the underlying window, or
3. Fully disappears revealing the underlying window.

The only cure in order to perform a consecutive task is to reveal the View ribbon then uncheck/re-check the Ruler checkbox in order to reset it.

Does anyone know of any suggested cures or fixes?
