    There is also a (strong) possibility that Pages is making a creeping error in calculating line spacing and positioning, which is why this problem occurs deep into a very long document.

     

    As Yellowbox suggests splitting any long document is always a good idea. Both Indesign and Quark Xpress do it as a matter of course, combining the results into "Books" which are the sum of those separate documents.

    I don't have a document that long handy, and I haven't seen this myself, but it occurred to me that Numbers has somewhat similar problems when the zoom is set to something other than 100%.

     

    I wonder if you set the zoom to 100% when the window is displaying the beginning of the document, would it still have this problem when you move to the end? And, if it doesnt, could you then change the zoom to a readable setting without losing access to the whole page?

    There has been other documents with this behaviour discussed in the forum. On had Facing faces and if I recall right one had a font that was the problem.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. Ive gone with MS word, while far from perfect, its getting the job done!

     

    Peter, 6GB is the max ram i can have on my laptop. I really doubt its a RAM issue though.

     

    Yellowbox, yeah for short docs pages is pretty good and handy.
