I have a document that is 136 pages single spaced. About half is
footnotes and half text.

If I select all text and format the paragraph as double spaced, every
other page vanishes!

Same with the footnotes.

Please help!

Thanks!!

I should add that I'm using Word 2002.

Sorry for the lack of attention to detail on my part:
Please only use the jerryb99 address if anyone is going to reply by
email.

Is there a way to get rid of the other two addresses on the usenet in
these messages?

Nobody is going to reply by email. That would not be a polite thing to
do. Don't ask for a fish but learn how to fish.

Except for cancelling (I see you use Forte Agent 1.91/32.564 so you
could try that), I wouldn't know any way. But I fear you are too late:
the big bad archiving monster has already petrified your messages for
posterity.


To answer your original question: I don't know.
Try this:
* new document
* copy only one page to the new document
* apply double spacing
* what happens???

The most likely cause I can think of is that each page is a separate text
box, frame, or floating table cell.

Are you sure that they vanish and that you don't have a graphics driver
issue? Try switching to double-spacing again and this time switch to Print
Preview and then back to Page Layout View to force repagination.
