Have you had any joy with this?  What version of Microsoft Word do you have?

 

Do you require XPS format, or will PDF also suffice?

Have you tried "printing" to a PDF file rather than "saving as" a PDF file? Use the normal print options but change the print destination to "Microsoft print to PDF". You may get a message that you are trying to print outside the print area or you might even succeed in the task.

I havn't tried that. Just been looking at that option and i can't seem to located the Print location to change. All i see is the printer setup  and print settings without the destination option

There should be a little down arrow next to the name of your printer, along from where it says ready.

I had a look and the only thing I found was

I've only seen this problem of disappearing page numbers once, and it was fixed by removing all page numbers and adding them again.

Not much help when you've 17 documents, I'm afraid.

thank you so much for your help though. page numbering is not as big an issue as losing  text so i will re-number the pages

For future reference you might want to consider Master PDF Editor for Windows - the non-commercial for GNU/Linux used to work flawlessly in GNU/Linux - now it is watermarked unless you fork out for a licence - might be worth considering for future use.
