Alright, so normally I don't ask help here but this one has me stumped. I have a document, 25 pages long. Typically you go file > print > set your page range (in this instance I want pages 21-23), print. Whala, it works.

However, in this instance, with navigation headers the word doc is split into mini word docs....so as you're scrolling it will say page 1, 2, 3, ~ 15, 16, then 1 because 16 was the last page of that header. The next header will start the count over again. So page 21-23 don't actually exist as page 21-23, they're pages 5-7 in navigation header 2. So how do I print a range of pages in anything after navigation header 2? I know I can do "current page" and it works fine, but this is not an acceptable answer for my coworkers unfortunately.

I'm doing more digging while this post simmers and hopefully I'll google-fu myself out of this like I usually do, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

I'm not sure there's an easy answer ... I run into this sometimes with PDFs.

If there's an easy way, I don't know it. But what I do is look to see what page the computer thinks it is and start that page number as the custom range (using math to add the number of pages I want beyond that). PITA but a workable solution.

I don't understand what you mean by "Navigation Header".

Kind of like this:



Whoever made the doc decided to break the document into sections using the nav pane and navigation headers, and each header can be subheaders to a parent header.....don't know why anyone would do this in a word doc but I guess it keeps them organized, I don't know.

In that pic, if I made "Illustrations" a parent header, when scrolling past whatever page that header is on, it will start the page count over. So the Aaas/Daas thing may have 5 pages in it (each subheader is not an individual page, so there could be several pages in each of those headers and subheaders), but when it hits the illustrations header, it will start over at page 1. So if I wanted to print page 3-5 of the Illustration header, I can't find a way to do so without printing them individually.

Perhaps it keeps the author organized, but not the rest of you! :-)

If this doc is unique and not read-only, I might spend the time to ditch its current "organized" set-up and save it as a 25-page doc. However, if this kind of doc is a common occurence and/or you can't edit it, then of course that won't work.

Nav Headers are strictly for... well ... Navigating. Like Bookmarks in Adobe. They do NOT alter the content of the document, the page numbering or any of that. I think something else is going on here.
Page Breaks and/or Section Breaks can screw up numbering like that.

Turn on your "Paragraph Marks"... not sure what the real name of that tool is called. It's the backward P with 2 feet in the HOME>Paragraph section of the ribbon. I'm sure you know what I mean. Now look at the document. Does that help? Can you see breaks littered close to where the panes are?

I just tested it real quick. Insert 2 Nav Headers. Page numbers don't change as I scroll down.

That's what we ended up doing, she said she didn't know who set it up like that, but it was a 35 page lease and they needed certain pages all the time so the current page technique wasn't going to cut it.



I have the doc here somewhere, I will check Peregrine, thanks. Hopefully tonight sometime if I get a chance. I'll update here when I do.

It's more of a curiosity than anything else at this point, I don't like saying "I don't know" to a user so it'll eat at me till I get it figured out, heh.
