Subject:Word 97 problem solved From:"Beckton, Jon" <jbeckton -at- MHS7 -dot- TNS -dot- CO -dot- ZA> Date:Thu, 10 Dec 1998 09:20:16 +0200
In case anyone suffers from a similar problem, here's one that came up and
was solved today. The version is MS Word 97. Isn't e-mail wonderful?
I am busy with a "largish" word document that, since the last time
it was edited, now just hangs MS Word. I have renamed it, copied it, moved
it, loaded it from another PC, all with the same result: The document comes
up but that is all, Word just does not respond. Before I leap from the
bridge to escape from re-typing the whole thing, if there is anybody with
any suggestions on how I could recover some of the info, I would appreciate

I think it's a Word problem. It's not your file. Under Tools /
Options / View remove the tick from Drawings. I think this is the problem.
