    Hi,

    Word was working fine for me under Jaguar.

    Following a Panther (clean) install, fonts are jagged, and scrolling and window resizing are extremely laggy.

    I haven't noticed these problems in any other apps.

    I'm running 10.3.2 on a 700Mhz G3 iBook w/ 384MB RAM.

    Any ideas?

    I can help you with the jagged fonts problem. I suspect the cause lies in your font smoothing settings (located in System Preferences, I believe). Try changing the font smoothing setting to see if that fixes the problem.

    Have you installed the latest Office update?

    I don't know if that will solve your problem, but it probably won't hurt.
