I have a friend who's being bedeviled by a very large proposal written
in Word. The document controls keep automatically repaginating the
document every time she makes a change. I've never seen this before,
but I put nothing past Word in terms of stupidity. :)

Are there any tips to preventing automatic repagination of a large
Word document? I've looked at the Help files, and they are, naturally,
not helpful.



P.S. Yes, I know one obvious tip is to switch to FrameMaker or another
tool specifically designed for this sort of thing. :)
