My sister has a word 2010 document and the text is very much outside the right page border. This doesn't happen on the first 3 pages, but does occur on all other pages.

I tried to create smaller right margins, move the ruler to the left, use different standard margin profiles, but nothing seems to work. How can we solve this?

Here's an example of the document:

Was the text copied from a website? Maybe it's inside a table. If that's so, try copying only the text and pasting it outside the table, and see if it gets wrapped properly. –  Karan Oct 3 '12 at 22:41
    
You sir, are awesome! The tekst was indeed inside an invisble table. Removing the table and pasting the tekst back in the document solved the problem ;) Thank you very much! –  Forza Oct 3 '12 at 22:55
    
@Forza: Glad it worked! Am posting the comment as an answer so you can mark this thread as being resolved if you wish. :) –  Karan Oct 4 '12 at 17:29

If you copy the entire contents of your document, then "Paste Special" that will clear any and all formatting that is currently on the text. If this fixes it then it is a page/paragraph/etc formatting problem. Which is probably the case, it's just hard sometimes to find what or where the formatting issue is at.

On the ribbon is the "Paste" button, if you click the down arrow the "Paste Special" option is there. From the paste special window you want to use the "Unformatted text" option.

Also a nice trick I didn't knew yet ;) Thank you! –  Forza Oct 4 '12 at 2:49
    
Especially if you are copy and pasting from a website it always will clear whatever formatting is being copied from the website. –  Angel Brighteyes Oct 4 '12 at 15:03
