Word is cutting off a page

Copper Contributor


Hi there - I'm editing a document.  In a particular section, there is some text, then that line, the paragraph mark, and it continues the text on the next page.  This is happening about a third of the way down the page and goes on for a few pages before correcting itself (I don't know how).  Any help on how to remove this format?  Thanks!

The line looks like a Footnote Separator. Does your document contain any footnotes?


Make sure that you display the document in Print Layout view. 

@Stefan_Blom thanks for the response!  there were no footnotes but I ended up putting the text into a new document and it solved it.  



Thanks for the follow-up. Indeed, copy & paste into a new, blank document will often help. To be sure, you can even paste as plain text.
