My pasteboard has split in sections

My pasteboard seems to have split in four sections, and it's, in turn, not showing the text in all the text boxes. It doesn't look like I have an alternate layout set up. You can see that most of the document is set up to the standards I need (the regular white pages against the non-split pasteboard).

 

I'm not sure what I did to trigger this happenstance.

Hi @MissEloquent:

 

Is it a damaged file?

Can you restore from a back-up file? (This is why incremental back ups are so important.)

 

Can you use Story Editor to cut all of the text on the split-pasteboard pages, removed the blank pages and frames and then reflow from that good pasteboard point forward? Save first, and work on a copy.)

Barb,

 

Thank you for responding. Cutting the affected text from the Story Editor and deleting the affected pages thereafter worked. I've also saved another copy. Thank you so much!
