I have a word document with an appendix. I have some large figures in the appendix, so I would like to increase the margins to get as much space as possible. However, when I do that, it forces a new section and restarts page numbering. When I edit the header and select "Link to Previous" in an attempt to at least continue page numbers, it changes all the previous pages to have the smaller margins. Deleting the section break has similar effects.
Could it possibly have something to do with headings (not page headers) tied to a table of contents? That is the only thing I can think of - I've been able to modify the margins of a single page in other test documents without affecting sections.
Looking at these screenshots, could anyone explain why Word is behaving like this, and how to make it not.
