I can't believe you're using Chisel2000 for long documents! It's
notoriously unstable when working with slabs of over 50 lbs. It
also has difficulty handling large images. I always use Binford
JackHammerMaker. It supports large slabs, and has built in tools
for creating pdf (Pebble Document Files)
It's what real professionals use.

I use a hammer, Chisel, and stone tablets. Customers like them because they
double as coffee tables. Although functions like spell check, and find and
replace sometimes give me problems. And really long documents are a real
pain. Also stone tables don't translate easily into HTML.
