I'm editing a book that I copied and pasted from text edit, which I hate with a passion bc I can't fit the text to an 8 x 11 doc, but word 2008 crashes every few seconds. I tried the safe boot, and renaming and deleting the word settings folder. That's the extent of my tech skills. I have a deadline and I really need your help. Here's the crash report. It's a foreign language to me so please help!!! Also, when in word, I have to back space from line to line to wrap the text around the page, if you have a solution for the 19th century way I am going about this, I need your input on that as well Thanks in advance!!!
