According to this article, MS fixed the master document feature in Word 2007
and it now works. http://news.office-watch.com/t/n.aspx?articleid=1396&zoneid=12 "Don't be afraid - Word's Master Documents is stable and worth using.

Eventually Microsoft listened and rewrote the whole codebase to make it work
safely. However memories of master document disasters still linger and
Office-Watch.com is often asked if the feature is now safe. The answer is
yes..."

Has anyone done a substantial manual as a master doc in Word 2007 or Word 2010 and lived to
tell the tale? I'd love to hear from someone who's tried it.

Stuart
