Annoying pop-up to update TOC on Print
I have updated to 2013 at work and now find that when I send a document with a TOC to print, I get a pop-up dialogue for updating the TOC, with the choice of page numbers only or entire contents. This happens even if I have done no editing in the document, just opened it and tried to print.

I have searched through all the setting in Options, but can't seem to locate the one that is causing this happen. Help, please.

For Word 2010 the option responsible for this is "File > Options > Display > Update fields before Printing". Maybe the last option is slightly wrong - should be sth like this (I'm using a German Word). Don't know what happened to it in 2013 version ...

Hope that helps

Thank you! I skipped over Display, not imagining it would be there. Live and learn.

Do you have any {today's date} fields in the document? in my usual environment, these mean that just opening a file is enough to make it "updated".

It made no difference. The previous answer is the solution.
