Hi everyone! So far I've been using Word 2008 only for short documents and everything worked fine. But now I am preparing an essay which right now consists of about 15 pages. After a certain time after starting Word it occupies so much memory that the whole system gets extremely slow (it is a pain the a..!!). Eventually Word crashes. It is only after I force quit Word that everything works normal again. This happens every single time I use that crappy MS product. Unfortunately I need to use it. Btw, I am using a 2.16 GHz Intel Blackbook with 1GB of memory and Leopard 10.5.2. Is there anyone else out there who has similar experiences? What can I do to prevent Word from acting like that? Cheers!
