This question already has an answer here:

As noted above the lower sections of the document seem to be cut off. The sections seem to be considered to be on the "last" page of the document but in reality they should continue to flow to the next page. The table of contents still shows them, and it looks fine in HTML export... But PDF and DVI end at page 7 incorrectly. Also I notice that after section 4.5 (the last bit of typing before it is just skeleton) it adds an extra page and a half of whitespace.. I tried removing different parts of the document but to no avail. Here is the source(Sorry for "censoring" a little of it.. but it shows the problem all the same)

    I don't think* the problem is severe. Once you add some actual text to these sections, LyX will be able to find suitable page-breaking points. Try adding some text at the start of section 5 (User Registration) to check. (*Note: I don't have LyX installed.) – jon Feb 5 '14 at 2:42
  • As @jon says, the problem is that TeX is unable to find a suitable place for page breaks when you only have (sub)section headings. If you look at the last PDF page, you may see that the headings continue into the bottom margin and off the page. Also, I think you've used \paragraph wrong. It is a heading, similar to \section, it doesn't indicate a text block. – Torbjørn T. Feb 5 '14 at 10:27
  • Thanks a lot for your quick responses... I'm trying to figure out how to mark this question as "answered" but I'm new here and I don't see any option. – ssjcory Feb 6 '14 at 2:20
