Hi,

I am using MS Word 2003, and every few minutes I get the message "Word is finishing analyzing your document" in the status bar at the bottom of the screen. While this is being displayed, I am forced to wait for it to do whatever it is doing (there is the instruction "press escape to exit", but the message reappears immediately after doing so). In short documents, this takes a fraction of a second and is therefore not a problem, but I mainly deal with long documents, where the me

Hi,

I am using MS Word 2003, and every few minutes I get the message "Word is finishing analyzing your document" in the status bar at the bottom of the screen. While this is being displayed, I am forced to wait for it to do whatever it is doing (there is the instruction "press escape to exit", but the message reappears immediately after doing so). In short documents, this takes a fraction of a second and is therefore not a problem, but I mainly deal with long documents, where the message is displayed for 20 seconds or more.

It doesn't make any difference whether I am using Print view or Normal view. I have been unable to find mention of the problem in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Google returned a few hits, but the solution/workaround proposed bears no relation to my own setup.

Any experience/ideas? This is really infuriating. I can obviously process all my Word translations through TagEditor, but I don't always want to do that.

Thanks in advance.

just an idea Dec 4, 2006

Have you check on "automatic spellcheker and correction" or something similar in the Word/tools menu ?

Tried all kinds of settings Dec 4, 2006

Yes, I've tried that, but it doesn't seem to have made any difference.

I'll keep trying various different options, in the hope that it will help, but I just can't see how to do it. Ah, the trials of over-complicated software making life difficult for users...

Id try the "space odyssey 2001" approach Dec 4, 2006

remember how the last man on board went and started to turn off HAL?

Do the same with options - there MUST be some darn switch turned on unnecessarily...

Good luck

Hi Jeremy Dec 4, 2006

With 90% confidence I suggest that this is caused by the template PDFMaker.dot. The only way to get rid of this is to remove the PDFMaker.dot from MS Word 2003 under Templates and Add-in's and un-checking the box next to it.

You can always check the box when you would need PDFMaker.

no pdfmaker template Dec 10, 2006

I don't have the pdfmaker template listed at all in my templates/add-ins, so it isn't that. Thanks for the idea, anyway. This issue is driving me mad. I'm thinking of returning to Word 2000, because 2003 is rendered completely useless to me if this "analyzing" cannot be switched off.

Having the same issue Jun 26, 2007

I am experiencing the same issue. The message appears every time I open a new segment, and it takes 20 to 30 seconds for Word to finish analyzing (on 150-page Word doc). Until it finishes, I cannot start inserting translations. I consider this a serious issue as it significantly decreases productivity.

I don't have other versions of Word to switch to, and I am forced to tolerate the situation (by simply "waiting").

I have auto-format, smart tag, and spell check features

I have auto-format, smart tag, and spell check features turned off, and I don't have PDFMaker.dot template installed (at least, I don't see that in Template and Add-ons list).

I appreciate any suggestions to solve this issue!

Thanks in Advance.

The same problem here and no workaround found Nov 19, 2007

I've got the same problem on my localized version (Slovenian) and haven't found any workaround yet. Could anybody provide help?

Any solution? Mar 11, 2008

This is driving me mad. I've removed all plugins from the template and plugin area (apart from CAT tools), I have disabled all possible "auto-someting" I could possibly think of... but the problem remains.

Remove Adobe Elements Sep 27, 2008

This reply might be superfluous now, as the previous posts are quite old.

I was having just the same problems as described above, and did not have any PDFMaker.dot installed, also the SmartTags approach did nothing.

However, I tracked down a post by someone called H. Williams on http://www.tech-archive.net/Archive/Word/microsoft.public.word.application.errors/2005-06/msg00714.html, in which he recommends uninstalling Adobe Elements. Well, I didn't know what on earth that program was or why it might have been put onto my computer in the first place, but after uninstalling it (via Control Panel / Add or Remove Programs), the problem with the document analysis on opening Word files has gone away. So, we owe a debt of gratitude to H. Williams.

Old topic, but perhaps useful info Nov 24, 2010

I have this problem as well. That is used to have. Today I decided to solve it as this analysing thing happens every three segments in a huge (about 70 pages) word file all only tables (financial statements). At this pace, it would take me ages to translate it, I waste much more time waiting while this analysis ends than actually translate.

I read about 10-12 forums, tried a number of things, but finally uninstalled PDFMaker and PDFforger, rebooted (yes, before reboot the effect did not take place) and bingo this annoying analysis disappeared. I did not uninstal Adobe Acrobat though. Perhaps it is useful to anyone.Collapse


 
Word is analyzing... solution Office 2011 Mac May 10, 2011

Office 2011 for Mac, does the same problem: "Word is analyzing your document", on large documents it takes 15-20 seconds every 2-3 minutes!!

You must restart your computer.
It runs!
Thanks.
