I have a document that’s based on a template which has two page styles (or is supposed to be). I have tried removing all the page styles saving and manually re-creating them. It always opens with a single page style, “Convert 1”. And when I remove the page styles, save, then create new page styles (two of them), then add a manual break and assign “Page 2” to the second page (formatted for tablet). Then I close and reopen, it has 9, or 13 pages with the Convert 1 style (which I had deleted). My defined page styles are gone. Then I repeat the process of deleting, re-creating page styles and using a manual break, and ensuring that there are only two pages. When I save and reload the document it has even more pages (as short as 7 inches)!
My pages are long (formatted for tablet), but I have created hundreds (maybe thousands) of docs with just two long pages using a few templates I’ve created. This one is the only troublemaker.
Document | Properties shows that it’s based on an old template using a MS word “.dot” file. How I’d love to change that! That would probably solve my problem. I can Load Styles, and have done many times, but it doesn’t fix this issue.
