Ok I'm sorry. It was still quite early for me when I responded to your last note, and just rereading your note now again I see you've already said that you're using WordPad. WordPad does not have a "zoom" feature the way normal Word does, but the setting you probably want to change is the word-wrap. After opening the document you're editing, go into the "view" menu with alt V, and then arrow down to "options" and push enter. Or, the options shortcut is o. The first control in this window is a radio box. First make a mental note of which setting it is currently on in case you want to change it back, but then arrow down so that the setting is changed to "ruler". Now tab to the "ok" button and push space bar. This should set your words to display correctly based on your margin settings. But however, since the book you are editing was originally something scanned, your margins may be set a little funky. You may or may not have to adjust them. Typically after I scan a book I admitably do not touch the margin settings at all. If changing this word-wrap setting does not affect your viewing of the file well enough, you can go back into the view options again with alt V then O and change the word wrap to "window" but really I think "Ruler" is the best setting you'll need and should solve your problem.
