I've a prob thats been bugging me for months and wonder if anyone has come across this and has any ideas how to cure it.

I work as a translator and regularly work on fairly large documents (400 pages plus) which usually have loads of sections (like a new section every 3 or 4 pages) basically of text but which incorporate a number of imported full page size images - usually brought in as jpeg format. I find when I open such a document and then scroll through it fairly quickly to a page containing an image - a) the image seems to take a longish time to load and sometimes causes word to crash b) if I accidently select the page before the image has appeared word almost always crashes.

I also find this problem occurrs frequently when I use images within tables.

Ive tried various Office installations - currently Im using Office 2000 Premium, but Ive had the same problem using Office XP and Office 2003 beta. Ive also tried running under different OS - currently Im using WinXP SP1 but ran on Win2000 for a long while with the same probs.

I wonder if I dont have enough available memory for Word but truth is Im not sure....

My PC setup is as follows: Athlon XP 1.8, 256 DDR, Asus A7V8X mobo, 80 Gb Seagate Barracuda drive, Nvidia (Siluro) 64 Mb GF4 Ti4200 video card running double monitors (extended desktop mode).

Appreciate any comments that might throw some light on this -

btw - this is bugging me so much Im thinking of switching to Star Office!!

thanx
