MS Word's "One Page View" Rant (and fix?)

I tend to use MS Word in "Print Layout" most of the time and when I want to do a quick "look-see" review of my document I switch to One Page and flick through the pages.
But what annoys me here is the way MS Word insists on showing 85% of your page and then puts footer (of the previous page) at the top. It's caught me out on occasion (eg even page and odd page line-up) but what I'd really like to see is a "One page" view with one whole page at a time.
Does anyone know an easy fix to this irritation?
