STOP! background repagination? by
I'm working on some long documents -- 35+ Megs. I'd like to stop the background repagination for a while, until I get the editing and styles done. In the meantime, it just slows me down when I'm doing find/replace. How can I temporarily disable the background repagination? Thanks! *(((({
