Hi Peter,

I don't necessarily have a lot of specifics on this, but from what I
can gather it has to do with the paragraph the object is anchored to.

Word is attempting to keep the paragraph on the page, and since the
object is also anchored to the paragraph it's trying to keep it on the
page, so it goes to the next page, and tries the same and fails again,
so it goes into a continuous repagination loop.

It may have to do with the Keep Lines Together Property or it could be
one paragraph is spanning multiple pages and the object is looking for
a paragraph mark to anchor to, and cannot find it,because no paragraph
either begins or ends on that page.

Please post all follow-up questions to the newsgroup. Requests for
assistance by email can not be acknowledged.

2000: in one I moved a drawing canvas and in another I tried to add a
footnote - in each case the manuscript of 25 pages suddenly added
amore and more balnk pages totalling into the thousands. This was
repeated on exiting and starting again with a previously saved files.
How can I stop tha addition of poltergeist pages?
