Rendering Photo Exhibits: Retaining page breaks when Exporting to MS Word

Depending upon the version of MS Word you are using, and your default header and footer settings, you may experience unwanted page breaks when exporting a photo exhibit to a MS Word document. The reason for this is the default "Distance From Edge" setting that your Word installation is using for headers and footers. When a default setting of .5" is used for headers and footers, MS Word may automatically overflow the bottom row of pictures in a rendered photo exhibit onto a following page. Here's how to correct this problem:

In MS Word, click View > Headers and Footers > then click the "Page Setup" icon from the Header/Footer toolbar. Reduce the "Distance from edge" slider for both Headers and Footers from the default .5" value, to something like Footer = .2" and Header = .3", or whatever looks best to your eye and prevents photo exhibit overflow onto successive pages.
