Quick note on a Word problem in Mac

I had a document that displayed only the first 7 pages (~1000 words) in Print Layout view even when the Word Count display stated 4000+ words.

I could view all the text only in Draft view, but the tables could not be viewed.

Save As a new file in .htm/.html format didn't work.

Copying and pasting (Track Changes OFF) to a new document didn't work.

Fiddling with Hidden Text selections and Column Numbers also didn't work.

What DID work was Save As a new file in .docx format and checking the box to Maintain compatibility with previous versions of Word. (The original file had been saved as a Word 97-2004 Document.)


Hope that helps!
