double spacing causes half of pages to vanish


J

JMB

I have a document that is 136 pages single spaced. About half is
footnotes and half text.

If I select all text and format the paragraph as double spaced, every
other page vanishes!

Same with the footnotes.

Please help!

Thanks!!

Sorry for the lack of attention to detail on my part:
Please only use the jerryb99 address if anyone is going to reply by
email.

Is there a way to get rid of the other two addresses on the usenet in
these messages?

Nobody is going to reply by email. That would not be a polite thing to
do. Don't ask for a fish but learn how to fish.

Except for cancelling (I see you use Forte Agent 1.91/32.564 so you
could try that), I wouldn't know any way. But I fear you are too late:
the big bad archiving monster has already petrified your messages for
posterity.


To answer your original question: I don't know.
Try this:
* new document
* copy only one page to the new document
* apply double spacing
* what happens???

What do you mean by vanish ???? Doesnt print, is lost totally, extra pages
added ????
Need more details.

The most likely cause I can think of is that each page is a separate text
box, frame, or floating table cell.

Are you sure that they vanish and that you don't have a graphics driver
issue? Try switching to double-spacing again and this time switch to Print
Preview and then back to Page Layout View to force repagination.
