Word: Where did my ruler go?

This is a really common question I get from new Word 2007 users. I'll answer it in today's entry: where did my ruler go?

Don't worry! It's still there, you just need to make it visible. Go to the 'View' tab on your ruler, and check off the 'Ruler' box (it's in the 'Show/Hide' group on the left-hand side of the ribbon).
