Microsoft Office For Mac 2004 jumpy on Leopard
Hi guys,

I just did a clean erase and install of Leopard on my macbook 2.16GHz and have just installed MicrosoftOffice2004, but when im typing its really jumpy and the same for clicking same selecting text, it takes a noticable amount of time for text to appear after i hit the keys. However, as im typing even now its a little delayed. Anyone know what could be up with this?
Thanks in advanced,

MS Office Mac 2004 was compiled for a Power PC Processor (G4, G5). i have noticed that it lags on both of my macbooks, but on my G5 iMac it runs great. it will get the job done on the macbooks, but i usually try to keep it to a minimum.

Did you install all of the updates for Office? Office 2004 needs a couple of updates to run properly under Leopard.

yeah it went through about 7 updates, i kept clicking "update now" until it told me there were no more.
