Error message when you try to stop repagination in Word: "Word must complete pagination before displaying the selected text in Print Layout View"

Symptoms

When you repaginate your Microsoft Word document, Word may never complete repagination, and the program may appear to stop responding (hang). When you press ESC to stop repagination, you receive the following error message:
Word must complete pagination before displaying the selected text in Print Layout View. Do you wish to continue pagination? To display the text in Normal view, select No.
If you click No, the repagination process stops and Word switches to Normal view. However, when you switch back to Print Layout view, the repagination process continues endlessly.

Cause

This problem can occur if the following conditions are true:
  • The document contains nested tables in the header or the footer.
  • The nested tables are formatted with wrapping text.
  • The document contains a {NUMPAGES} field in the header or the footer.
  • Change tracking is turned on.
  • The document contains more than 10 pages.
  • Print Layout view is turned on.
