Temporary Pages in Layout View in InCopy

A user was concerned because she was seeing 3 extra pages in InCopy in Layout view that the designer was not seeing in InDesign. Each extra page had a single text object on it. I looked at the K4 Attachments panel and noted that the unattached text objects were showing up on the extra pages.

In the example below there is a text object in the credits article that has not been placed on any page. When the InCopy user views the page in Layout mode an extra page was created, that is only viewable in InCopy, that has this text object. A additional page was created for another unassigned text object that didn't have any content.
