Dear all,

I am facing a problem with Word. It is a word document with a lot of images and text within text boxes. All of a sudden, word stops to "save" the contents, but it takes ages to save!!

Down on the Windows frame it states:
"Windows is preparing to save the information of autorecovery for Filename".

Has anybody encountered this problem and know how to solve it?

Thanks a lott!

You can turn off autorecovery.

If you are very sure of the stability of your hardware, software, and electricity supply...

Perhaps split the document ... Mar 28, 2006

If the 'heavy' pages with illustrations are grouped together in the document, you could split the document into a 'text' file and an 'illustrations' file. At least while you're working on the text section, you will not waste time re-saving the illustrations unnecessarily.

a trick Mar 28, 2006

every few minutes make a "Save as" not "Save" and rewrite the last version. It works...sometimes

Better is more RAM more Dual core and more... well, money to buy all we need

Gracias! Mar 28, 2006

Vale, voy a intentar esto, también se ha agilizado cuando he quitado la marca en la casilla Opciones > Guardar > Permitir guardar en segundo plano,

que me estaba ralentizando todo mucho.

Sí, claro el eterno problema de la memoria. También es que algunos clientes quieren ahorrarse el DTP y te mandan archivos en Word con todo tipo de formatos.

Venga, a las buenas noches!!

Y muchas gracias por el "tip"

How? - like this ... Mar 28, 2006

The safest way is, first, to save the document. Then re-open it, Save As ..... with a different filename, and then select and cut the illustrations from this copy, which is then the 'text only' part.

Re-open the first file again (the complete document), Save As again, with yet another filename, and this time cut out the text. This will be the 'illustrations only' part.

When you need to stick it all back together again, the safest way is to open a new empty document, then do insert - file fore each part in turn (and in the right order).

This way, you always have back-up copies of each stage of the process, in case anything goes wrong ...
