Hi Parkavi,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

We are unable to reproduce the mentioned “Page Layout” issue with given details. We have tried to reproduce the issue at our end using below sample code.
// Loads template Word document.
WordDocument wordDocument = new WordDocument("Source.doc");
// Adds paragraph with text to the section.
wordDocument.LastSection.AddParagraph().AppendText("End of section added one paragraph");
// Modifies the text of first paragraph of the section.
wordDocument.LastSection.Paragraphs[0].Text = "First paragrph of section modified";
// Modifies paragrah format with back color for particular paragraph.
wordDocument.LastSection.Paragraphs[7].ParagraphFormat.BackColor = Color.Yellow;
// Saves and close the Word document instance.

We could see the following comparison result while opening the given Word documents in Microsoft Word application. Can you please confirm us whether you are representing this differences as an issue with "Page Layout", if so then kindly share your code snippets or sample on how you have generated this “New.doc” Word document from “Source.doc” Word document there by we could analyze further on the reported issue.
