Word 2010: Heading corruption on print preview

Last Modified: 2016-01-03

I have a large (279 page) document which has numbered and nested headings (i.e. '15.6' to '')


When I either open the Print view form Backstage or highlight everything and press F9, both of which update all field values in the document, sections at the bottom of the document are moved to the top were they appear to be 'inserted' under other sections and the numbering / headings are jumbled.

(Unfortunately for confidentiality reasons I cannot post the actual document)

NOTE: This happens even when the contents are copied to an entirely new document and saved.


How can I resolve this and stop it from happening ?

Has anyone had such a severe issue before ?
