Untraslated segments in Target file due to page breaks in .docx

Hello everyone,

I am currently translating a manual, which contains some 100 .docx files.

I have created the project in Trados 2017, but after translating the first file I have noticed that the saved target file is not completely translated: after the point where in the original docx I have a page break, my translation stops and everything after that is untranslated.

I know I could change the original .docx and remove the page breaks, but we're talking about more than 100 files with a lot of page interruptions (more or less at the end of every page).

Is there a way to avoid this problem? Can't Trados recognize page breaks somehow without having to reformat all the files? Or have I done something wrong during the creation of my project?

Any help would be much appreciated!
