Anyone else having serious problems with notebook layout freezing? I've got 17 pages of notes in one of these files, and almost once per class period, Word freezes up and I lose part or all of my progress. I try to save regularly, but sometimes it just isn't enough. It happens most frequently (nearly exclusively) on this one file, and there's nothing wrong with it according to anything I've checked. I've become really dependent upon notebook layout just because it's so useful for class notes, but it just seems too buggy. Anyone else have any problems, or suggestions? Do any other word processing programs yet support this feature?

'cause when it rains, you know it pours.

Have you updated Office at all? It's on a SP2 release now or whatever they call it, you can run Microsoft Autoupdate which should be in Applications (Command + Shift + A) and it will download all the necessary updates -- my only suggestion for the stability issues?

Never had Word 2004 crash on me yet...

I update every time I think to. I have the latest version at the moment. Honestly, I still think it's the best word processing software around. It just seems to be this one layout that has any serious problems. Unfortunately for me, it's the perfect one for my purposes.

MS anything SUCKS, SUCKS, SUCKS. Yeah I have had that crap fail on me so many times. One time I lost a big chunk of a research paper because of it. I wanted to beat my iBook to death but realized it wasn't its fault but Microsoft's. I calmly sat down my ibook and walked away. I think Microsoft is the Devil. ttttttttttttttttt :black:
