My favorite program, microsoft word... has decided that if I delete the final section break (which is causing my document to have an extra blank page), it will break the formatting of the entire document before the break.
The document ends, then (with formatting shown) I can see the final section break. When I delete it, the ruler resets and my margins are all forced to the leftmost side of the page. When I try selecting all and moving it back over, many parts of the document (which contains tables, pictures, figures, etc) do not realign correctly.
Is there a way for me to delete this section break without altering the formatting before the break?
There are two other section breaks in the document, one after the cover letter, and a second after the table of contents. Then there are approximately 20 pages of content, the final section break, and a blank page I would like to destroy.
