Page Numbers Incorrect if Tracked Changes Are Not Accepted Before Opening a Microsoft Word Document

Technote (FAQ)


You import a Microsoft® Word document into the Documents editor. However, when you edit the document, using the Documents editor, you notice formatting issues. For example, the document footer says "Page 1 of 4", but the document has only two pages. Or you may see extra table rows and columns in the document.


This issue has been reported to Lotus software Quality Engineering, and the possibility of a fix is being evaluated for a future release.

The behavior occurs when you enable change tracking for the Microsoft Word document but have not yet accepted all the changes. The unprocessed changes can lead to formatting issues in the imported document.

To avoid the problem, process all the changes in Microsoft Word before importing the file into the Documents editor.
