    i'm using word x to put the finishing touches on an assignment but it won't let me copy and paste anything.
    why? "there is insufficient memory, save the document now." it is large for a word document, about 2MB but really?
    i've restarted and closed everything but word but that didn't help at all.
    the computer: rev c 12" powerbook
    help?

    How much RAM do you have? How about available HD space?

    If you have the time, you could try uninstalling and reinstalling word. Could be a corrupt file somewhere.

    If worst comes to worst, finish it in TextEdit.

    looks like i found it after all.
    i overlooked quicksilver before, cleared the clipboard and everything seems fine again.

    thanks for your help anyway :)
