"Word is repaginating" continuously, every time I scroll the doc

Every time I scroll my 50 page document, Word starts repaginating. I can't
turn this off. It started after I added a couple of section breaks.

Switching from Print layout to normal layout stops the repagination, but to
add graphics, I need to be in print layout.

Any help out there?

Thanks, Nick

Thanks, Jay. The document was NOT corrupted. The problem was a 1X2 table I
used in the Header. Deleted the table, and the repaginating ceased.

Cheers!

I have seen this before with tables in headers or footers combined with page
numbers in frames (as created by Insert > Page Number). If the table width
is just a little too much, Word can't seem to make up its mind how to
arrange the two conflicting elements.

Hi Nick:

Yep! That's what he meant by "Corrupted Document" :)

A document has a large number of discrete "containers": The headers and
footers are amongst them. Corruption can happen in any of the containers,
but the "first" header container in the document is a commonly affected area
of the document.

Cheers

Hi,

My document is also having the same issue. I have an image in my footer. So when I try to remove this image by editing footer, Word is allowing me to do because it goes to Not Responding. Can someone help me pls :(
