    Word XP Print Preview Protected Section(s) (XP - SP2)

    Does anyone know how to view protected sections in Print Preview? We have complex documents that contain protected sections (protected for forms) in various parts. Under Word 97 Print Preview I could scroll through the entire document; under Word XP I can only drag on the vertical scrollbar to navigate to a protected section. As soon as I release the mouse button the document scrolls back to the next unprotected section.

    Is this a bug -- oops, I meant "feature"? Thanks for any info.

    Ouch.

    We don't have XP (yet). But I will try to get this checked. Thanks for the pointer.

    OK, Microsoft confirmed this to be a bug. No ETA for fix. Obvious workaround is to use Print (Page Layout) View instead.
