    in normal view status bar not updated (WordXP)

    Hiya

    In WordXP, we noticed that if youre in Normal View> create a new document & place a great deal of text so it spills onto the next couple of pages - that the status bar is not updated. and the status bar is actually greyed out or disabled. ie in the bar that displays the Page number, Section number etc
    Only if you goto View>Page Layout & then back to Normal View - does it refresh or update the page numbers eg

    please see attachment.
    the top status bar is whats happening in WordXP.
    & the bottom status bar is whats happening in Word97 - which displays & reflects the total page numbers.

    Have you seen this before? is this a WordXP bug? how do i resolve?
    many thanks
    Diana

    Hi Diana:
    Unless it changed from Word 2000 (always possible <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>), you must go to Tools/Options/General/ & check Background repagination. Otherwise, Word doesn't update pagination in normal view.
    Cheers,

    Phil,

    Word 2002 (XP) still acts the same as Word 97 and Word 2000 in this respect.

    For Diana: even with Background Repagination ON, it may take a few seconds before repagination occurs in Normal view; in Page Layout view it is more or less instantaneous.
