Help with moving Divisions in Word Pro (always crashes)
Subject:Help with moving Divisions in Word Pro (always crashes) From:Peter Joseph Dranchuk <dranchuk -at- COMPUSMART -dot- AB -dot- CA> Date:Mon, 15 Dec 1997 13:22:46 -0700
I am a junior technical writer working on my 4 software manual. It is the
largest so far. The client has requested that manual be done in Lotus Smart
Suite's Word Pro (most recent version).
I have tried in vain to use the divisions feature of Word Pro to separate
each of the manual's sections, to manage the editing and proofing process.
When ever I try to move a division, the system crashes with a memory error.
Its a bad bug which the most recent patch from Lotus does not resolve it.
I am running Win 95 on a 133 Mhz Pentium Machine with 24 MEG RAM and
130-140 MEG swap space.
If anyone has experience with Word Pro and could provide some advice, I
would be grateful.
