I have a very large MS Word document containing almost 50,000 words, and Word keeps repaginate this file all the time (this circle indicator keeps popping up all the time) so I hardly can browse or edit the file.

When I tried to follow the advice here, I discovered this alternative is greyed out for me:

So I can not turn it off as long as this option is greyed out.

Any suggestions what I can do?

Hi,

If you read attentively the linked page it says the Print Layout  does not permit disabling of the repagination change the view of your document to Draft to be able to do it.
