I have a big Word document (about 150 pages).
It was very quick until about 120 pages. Then I added about 25 pages, with the following content: - 1 section with a small sized font table with smaller page margins than default - 1 section with a lot of small tables (no Excel, just created within Word). - Header & footer text
When going inside/beyond the first added section (and further) repaginating starts which is very slow and seems to start over all again after pressing a cursor key/page up/down etc.
What I tried: - Moving the content to a new document. I don't like this because I need hours to fix the headers/footers. - Copied it piece by piece, doesn't really change.
What I don't like: - Turning off background repagination (only if this is the last solution) - Removing normal.dot (I use 9 heading levels).
