Hi all
I am trying to convert a large size word document ( 86 pages) to a PDF file. I am having a problem with the pages. they seem not to match and it creates a big mess specially regarding page numbers, for example my page looks something like this
Page 1 Chapter one ....chapter name
on top of the page then you have the same through out the book.
Page 2 Chapter one.. chapter name
so when i convert to PDF file i see the heading in the middle of page one or at the end of page 1 and so on through out the rest of the book. the book is in Arabic
am I doing anything wrong? any ideas or thoughts on how to fix the problem?
i change the font into a smaller size i also inserted page break, i went one by one looking though the pages on Print Preview to make sure they all in their proper places, but that did not help.
any ideas please?
thanks a lot
