I should probably add that I will (likely) not be converting documents from
Frame to Word. I would be creating new documents in Word. That's a little
better than converting, I know, but I still have the issue of setting
things up so I don't have to deal with constant crashes and corruptions.
And I have to set them up so that engineers can also edit the files.

My documents are very table- and graphic-heavy, too.
