I sometimes have to produce documentation in Word, and aside from the irritation with the apparently nonsensical whims of auto-formatting, the frequent crashes are a NIGHTMARE.

Inserting a graphic often causes the whole program to freeze up; and the only solution is to reboot my computer.

So yes, if anybody has tips on how to avoid crashes, please share.

Because of various changes at my company, I may be moving from FrameMaker to Word.

The documents I handle run into the hundreds of pages. I've never handled a Word doc over 80 pages that didn't regularly crash or corrupt.

I'm looking for people who have successfully handled very large documents in Word. I need to pick your brains to find out how you do it. I'm a moderately experienced user of Word, but I'm by no means a power user. If this move is made, I'm going to need a lot more information.
