I will have several Word docs open, each open in Print Layout view. Then,

all of a sudden, Word will begin repaginating all of the documents. I have

to stop typing or scrolling until it stops (approx 5 - 10 secs). Can I

prevent this, other than going in Normal view? ...thanks

      No, there's no way to stop Word from repaginating when in Print Layout view. I

      do have to wonder, however, why all the documents would start repaginating at

      the same time.

      Which version of Word do you have? Are you working on a standalone/at home or

      on a corporate network system?

    • Hi Cindy:

      This occurs at work. Office is installed on my laptop, but I am coonected

      to the corporate LAN. I have not attempted to duplicate this problem at

      home, however. You are thinking that there is some global setting out of my

      control, maybe?

      Thanks for responding. I want to go to Switzerland!

      I'm not really sure what might be causing it, but I think it would be a good

      idea to contact your IT department. And inordinate amount of repagination in a

      single file would indicate the file is damaged. But if all documents are doing

      this simultaneously, something must be triggering it.

      I have to wonder if there's an Addin that might be doing something (updating

      all fields or all TOCs in documents, for example).
