Just thought now

- corrupt normal.dot perhaps?
- can I make so other ap my editor to see if word is corrupt.
> Word is occasionally having to catch up on itself when typing i.e. I can at times (usually at start) type faster than it can display.

Anyone any ideas?

Greetings worded!

In Outlook, go to Tools > Options > Mail Format. Uncheck MS Word as editor.  Click OK.  If the problem goes away, you know it is due to MS Word.

If MS Word is at fault, delete normal.dot file and restart Word.

Run a repair on Word. Go to Help > Detect and Repair.

If no joy, reinstall MS Word.

Best wishes, war1
