For users who don’t want to enable auto pagination, there are two workarounds.
First, there’s a dependency between the auto pagination module and the scrolling module. However, if you want to effectively disable the former site-wide, select “I want to paginate by paragraphs” in the auto pagination module and enter a very high value in the number of paragraphs field. (Something like “999.”)
If you want to disable auto pagination on a page-by-page and post-by-post basis, set your defaults in the auto pagination module and then use the meta box in the right column of the page/post editing screen to adjust specific settings for that entry.
I was about ready to throw in the towel on this issue. I initially tried using workaround #2 as well as some other settings and nothing seemed to help, but setting to global settings per #1 solved my problem. Thank You.
