I’m working on a book chapter and finding that there is one document of about 17K words that was originally imported from Word that is causing a considerable lag. I’ve split this long document into two shorter parts within the project. The split off/new document I created with the first half of the text is fine. But every time I switch to the second section (which is the longer of the two and the same location where the original Word document was imported), I get the spinning beach ball and have to wait about 15 seconds before I can start typing in it.
I had thought maybe it was because there were some images in the document, so I moved each image to a separate research file in the project, but that’s not solved the problem.
Does anyone have advice? It’s slowly driving me batty as every time I switch back and forth I have to wait.
