       I keep it in 'edit mode' until I'm finished; seems to work best than
switching between these -

            well, I figure the switching might confuse the computer;
                and I probably confuse it too much - and irritate it by
referring to it as a 'glorified typewriter'  ;-)

are 292 pages but when I go down to the last page in the document I see
236.  Then if I do another insert to update the table of contents then

You don't say whether you are updating the table of contents.  (I'm not

It is asking a bit much for a word processor to go back and check the
references in indexes and tables as you are working: every keystroke
change any page reference.  The processing involved would slow down your
work considerably.  After any editing and before you can rely on the
of your table of contents, you need to update the table.  Go to Tools |

of contents), All Indexes and Tables, or Update All.
