Here's probably the oddest Word problem I've ever encountered.

While the Word document I was working for a client was being updated for
content, it seemed to have lost its even page footers. The last version I
worked on had them and they appeared correctly.

I've tried pasting the current content into that old file but the even page
footer seems to disappear when I do that.

I think I know what happened, not how it happened or how to fix it.

The last person to work on it, ended up pasting the text on the first even
page of the main part of the book into the first even page footer.

So, the only thing that appears in the even page footer is the top margin of
the pasted object, which seems to be why I don't even see the footer
textbox. I researched yesterday and couldn't find any way you can delete
that textbox but my SME caught on to an oddity that led us to the current
diagnosis. If you set the view to Normal, you see that now huge even page
footer, which is outside the page dimensions, so I only see the top margin
of the pasted-in page in the footer.

Unfortunately, he seemed to paste it in as an object, not text, so I can't
select it to remove it.

I haven't figured out the quickest way to solve it.
