    Page order (XP)

    Simple question for someone:

    Is there a way of changing the page order in a multipage document?

    Hi Rob,

    Do you want to change the order in which pages are printed, or do you want to change the order in the document itself? Or do you mean something else?

    Sorry for the vague response. I would like to change the order in the document itself.

    If you have organized your document with Heading styles, you can use Outline view (View | Outline or the Outline View button to the left of the horizontal scroll bar) to reorganize it. You can drag the + and - symbols to the left of the paragraphs up and down, or use the up and down arrow buttons on the Outlining toolbar, or use the keyboard shortcuts Alt+Shift+UpArrow and Alt+Shift+DownArrow.

    Otherwise, you'll have to rearrange the text by cut & paste or by drag & drop.

    There is one additional way to rearrange your document, but probably not any more advantageous than cut 'n paste. You can use the Spike. Select the text in the pages that you want first & press Ctrl+F3. This cuts it to the spike, which is an autotext entry. Then select & next block & press Ctrl+F3; this will append the selected text to the spike. Do this until you've cut everything & then press Ctrl+Shift+F3, which pastes everything & empties the spike. Either way, I'd do it on a copy of the document. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    The problem is that a page is not an object in word, and any change to the document (like moving text and graphics) will potentially move things so that the pagination in the rest of the document is completely changed.

    I wonder if it might be possible to write a Macro that uses Document.Goto to visit each page in turn and then pastes the contents of Document.Bookmarks("Page") to the appropriate place in a new document. You would also need a bit of extra code to copy page setups, headers and footers for each section. This method may work, because the original document is not altered so hopefully its pagination won't be changing underneath the macro.

    Thanks Phil and Stuart for the suggestions. I'll give them both a shot.
