NEVER use fast saves! Those of us doing online help learned to disable that
..um...feature long ago.

One thing you might try to bring the document down to a reasonable size is to
select the entire document, copy it, then paste it into a new document, close
the original and do a save as. This should get rid of all the extraneous junk
the fast save accumulated.

Good luck!
