A 60-page Word document is no big deal and should not be giving you these
sorts of problems, even if it's full of screen shots and tables. After
all, Info Mapping is based on ALL tables and you can produce large docu-
ments using that technique.

My first suggestion, Chas, is to be sure that when you close your Word
document, you ALWAYS do a "Save As" and NOT a "Save." TECHWRLers have
recommended this many times, but it's such an easy fix to a common Word

Second, be sure that in Tools>Options>Save, there is no check next to
"Allow Fast Saves" - in other words, turn OFF that feature.

If you still have the same problem, let us know and we can come back at
you with more ideas.
