SimpleText doesn't work in OS9???

I upgraded to OS9 yesterday, and now mysteriously I can't get SimpleText to open any files. It gives me the message "SimpleText cannot display this document because there is not enough memory.". I have only one instance of the SimpleText application on my system (G3 Blue & White) and it's the one that comes with OS9. Any ideas?

1) Rebuild your desktop database
2) Run Norton Disk Doctor 5
3) Increase the memory partition for SimpleText.

If that doesnt fix it your computer is posessed by mutant rogue green burrito aliens and needs to be exorcised. Norton will fix it for sure.

Weed,
     Thanks. Didn't even think to give SimpleText more memory to work with. (You wouldn't think you would HAVE to! Sheesh!) Anyway, that did the trick!

Muchas Gracias!
