Default Pages Deleted and is smaller

Here is the document shrunk way down. Some of the page numbers don't coincide with above numbers and that is because of pages deleted and the header renumbered them. I just want to put a blank page in. The file is only 97kb instead of 2mb.

Thank you.
First glance: Ouch!
I am seeing this:

Somehow you have your footer at the top of the page and your header underneath.

Opening the document, I am seeing 11 sections, 169 pages, less than 3000 words. This is messed up.

I would recommend saving a copy of your original document.
In the copy replace ^b with nothing to remove section breaks.
Give your document footer more room. At least room for two lines.

Then go back in and add your page numbering, headers and footers.
I do not know why you had that many sections but they probably could be avoided.
Look into something called the StyleRef Field.

Default Lets look back to the beginning

The very first post. I explained that this was converted from a pdf. The header and footers may have switch themselves around deleting about 600 other pages. I just want what happened between page 17 and 18. A BLANK PAGE NO PAGE NUMBER AND NOT FORCING CONTENT DOWN IN PAGE NUMBERS. I'm Not sure if my English is coming through clearly. What I thought would be a fix by typing the footnotes for that particular page is not. I just want to insert a Blank page not effected by Header and Footer.

OK
I went back and downloaded your entire book.
Word is locked up half an hour trying to open it. I am going to let it work on it overnight while I go to sleep.
Note: I have 32 Gb of RAM and the document is on my SSD drive.



Converted documents are ALWAYS difficult to edit.

I suspect that it is so messed up that the steps I recommended previously will be needed to even start doing anything with it.

Default I Just need an answer to my main thing

I just want to insert a blank page that doesn't get effected by header and footer numbering. If you downloaded the 2MB file. It opens up just fine on my computer the first time takes about a few minutes and it caches for quick opening the next time. Enable the macros or you won't see the changes that have been made to the document the macros are simply alt-d for britishMT and red. alt-e for back to normal and alt-s for strikethrough. I am actually impressed with the conversion to word when I saved it as a word document from the pdf. In the effect that it created the word file as if you actually opened the Big Book of AA physically, and said go to page 59, and you go to page 59 on the word document it was the exact same page. Yet in the pdf file it came from page 59 was somewhere else in the book. Trying to find a word file that is this exact is pretty impossible. What i need to do doesn't happen every page where so much typing makes it overflow. I just need to insert a blank page that doesn't effect the page numbering that is in the document created by the conversion.

Yes, and Charles informed you shortly thereafter that conversions from PDFs are fraught with problems. page numbers, headings and footers are particularly problematic because as far as the PDF is concerned, they are not repeated objects.

You might consider making a copy of the PDF and editing those things out, then attempt a new conversion. That may give you a cleaner conversion to work with.

Default If you were able to see the version in first post

You would grasp what editing I am doing. I have the perfect conversion from pdf to word as I explained page numbers coinciding with the actual book. I do not understand why at page 17 and I went into overflow that word gave me a blank page and then page 18 as it is in the actual physical book. Then at page 52 I go into overflow of the page and it takes page 53 shoves it to 54 and the overflow from page 52 is now page 53 which I do not want. I try to insert a blank page and it shoves page 53 to 54 which is not what I want to happen. Pretty sure that there is a way. I thought someone on this forum that I was recommended to ask would be able to tell me a work around.

When I figure it out I will let you know.
