WD: Background Repagination Can't Be Turned Off
Article ID: 120106 - View products that this article applies to.
This article was previously published under Q120106
The Background Repagination option is selected and is unavailable (dimmed) for you to clear (turn off).
To locate this option, on the Tools menu, click Options (or click Preferences in Word 98 Macintosh Edition), and select the General tab.
This behavior occurs because you are viewing the current document in page layout view. By design, page layout view requires that Background Repagination be turned on, because Word must show the page breaks correctly.
To turn off Background Repagination, change the document view to normal, outline, or master document view.
Repagination in Word cannot be totally turned off. This is because Word has to repaginate the document in page layout and print preview in order to correctly display the document.
