Word won't stop repaginating my open docs.......very intermittent behavior.
Posted on 2005-04-08
I am currently having the following problem with Word.......
Word Version: 2000 Build: 9.0.6926 SP-3
Environment: Windows XP Version 2002 SP-2
1.) Had several docs open 2 days ago when this issue first occurred. I was copying and pasting between docs, saving, and saving-As new doc titles.
2.) On 2 of the documents Word I noticed my cursor "flickering" between the pointer and the hourglass. I then noticed the Status bar flickering as well and I could just
make out the word "repaginating" amidst the flickering. It looked as though word was repaginating the document over and over and over as I noticed also that the
page numbers were cycling very fast in the "repaginating...." message.
3.) This was occurring any time I was not actively editing or navigating the document. Once I would move the cursor, it would stop...but only to start again in a couple
4.) Today I am having the same problem on other documents that have NO association with the docs I was using the other day. For instance, I have a template that I
renamed and resaved today, and when I open a new document based on this template, the problem is occurring.
I am at a loss as to where this issue is stemming from and how to fix it. Let me know if I've left any details out here.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
