TWB - 2.x, TWB - 3, TWB - 5
WORD - 2000 (ANY), WORD - 97 (ANY)
Because of their high consumption of RAM, Word 97 and 2000 can get slow when they interact with Translator's Workbench, especially in documents that contain more than 50 pages.
With a Word macro that is included in the installation of Word 97 and Word 2000 you can speed up Word considerably.
- The template file containing the macro is called support8.dot (Word 97) or support9.dot (Word 2000) and can be started by double-clicking the file name in Windows Explorer.
- Once the DOT has opened in Word, select the first option, Double click here to run RegOptions.
- In the right window that comes up, doubleclick on the Double click here to run RegOptions macro ... option.
- In the upcoming dialog chose CacheSize. The default is set to 64 K. Set this value to 512 and click OK. Repeat the same procedure with the BitmapMemory value.
There are many more measures that can speed up Word 97 or Word 2000. For more comprehensive information, see the articles Q160068 (Word 97) as well as Q239431 and Q237356 (Word 2000) in the Microsoft support knowledge base at http://support.microsoft.com.
