Issue - User attempting to create a submittal and ran into an error. RPTViewer Error #4605 - The Pagination method or property is not available because this command is not available for reading.

Cause - The error is caused by Word opening the document in Reading Mode rather than Read Mode.

Environment - Locally installed client, remote desktop, or Comsense Online. Word 2013, 2016, or Office 365. 

Resolution - Ensure that the Word setting open e-mail attachments and other uneditable files in reading view is not checked.
