If you're working in Page Layout view, there's nothing you can do about
repagination. If you're working in Normal View, you can turn off
Repagination (on the General tab of the Tools>Options dialog) so that
Word knows that you only want it to repaginate when you change views or
get ready to print the document. In general, I never use the Page Layout
view because it is simply too slow once a document is longer than a dozen
or so pages. Actually, I never got in the habit of using that view because
when it was first introduced (in the Word 95, was it?), the program would
crash about 50% of the time if you attempted to print from that view, and
that gets very tiresome very quickly. The view is more robust now, but
just too damn slow on a big doc.
