How can I change the gray area amount in the normal view? I accidentally clicked something (don't know what) and now, when I start the program, there appears only the gray area in the view (without the ruler at the top) and I am not able to see the white page at all unless I scroll the sidebar at the bottom. The gray area is on the left and the page on the right.

Switching off the program & the computer didn't help.

Thank you for your help. :)

Not sure where you are.

Open the View menu. Make sure that Status bar is ticked. Look in the right bottom corner. The number there, like 300%, is the zoom indicator. For now, set it to 100% with the slider directly to the left. More to the left are a few tools to control the number of pages displayed on the screen. Play with them. Make sure that the rulers are on as well (View - Rulers).

Thank you! The problem was with the number of pages displayed on the screen. Problem solved! :) :)
