I read an article in one of these forum a while ago about speeding up the Word program. I remember there were some very good tips, such as working in draft and using the default font, etc.
I have now changed machines (still retaining XP but the latest version of Word) and I can't trace that article any more, especially the bit about using the default font because I remember that helped speed up the program no end in large documents. If anyone can point me in the direction of the article, or recall any of the tips, I would be grateful.
