File won't open correctly

Postby stu007 » Mon Jun 18, 2018 4:09 pm

Hi I just spent all morning writiing a 10 page file for work. I thought I was finished so saved the file, and exited the program. On returning to make an addition the file won't open correctly.
When I try to open it it comes up as 10 pages in the bottom left, then qucikly changes to 3. Once its loaded all I have are 3 pages.

Any suggestions?

When you scroll to the end of the three pages, is that the correct end of your text?

Probably what haws happened is that the file was, before saving, switched (somehow) from /View /Print layout to /View /Web layout. It should be sufficient to take the 3 page file, and switch to /View /Print layout, then save the file again; best to use another name, just in case.
