    Word2000 freezes during paste

    Dell OptiPlex GX110 128MB RAM
    Word2000 doc freezes when I try to copy/paste a drawing object onto a page. I need to use Task Manager to close the application.

    What type of image is it and how large is it?

    If it is a very large in terms of megabytes it may take some time before your system is able to copy it into the document.

    Try saving the object outside Word in some format, and then using the link option. This way, the Word document does not become unnecessarily large, and you can choose to suppress display of the pictures by checking Picture Placeholders in Tools|Options|View so that editing is not slowed down.
