Depending on where you're at with your formatting -- and the tradeoff
between preserving it and potential lost time if your current woes
continue -- you might also want to make sure you're working with
pristine, unformatted text in the new document and then begin reapplying
styles. PureText should get you pretty close, perhaps all the way, by
selecting all from your old doc and copying into a Normal paragraph (for
starters) in your new doc. Absent PureText, or if you just want a bit of
healthy overkill, a good sequence to strip all formatting and get to
Normal, if memory serves is: CTRL+A, CTRL+SPACEBAR, CTRL+Q, and
CTRL+SHIFT+N.

HTH,
Jim

When in doubt, the first thing to do is close Word and throw away the
Normal.dot file. The next time you open Word it will recreate the file.
(I often reboot before reopening Word, but I don't thing you really have
to...I may be wrong.)

I had an instance recently where Word would only open up in Safe Mode,
although it had been working great up until I shut down for dinner.
Drove me crazy (or crazier). Then, I dumped the Normal.dot file,
rebooted and brought Word back up and everyone is happy again.
