Microsoft Word is a commercial document editing program that is part of the Microsoft Office suite. It features numerous text-editing tools for creating richly formatted documents, along with tools for the use of macros in Word documents. Word's native file formats are denoted either by a .doc or .docx file extension. Plugins permitting the Windows versions of Word to read and write formats it does not natively support, such as the OpenDocument format (ODF) are available. Word can import and display images in common bitmap formats such as JPG and GIF. It can also be used to create and display simple line-art.

I have a large document with 20+ chapters. Each chapter has own header with chapter title and a footer with page number. My client has to publish the whole doc as well as each chapter separately on their website. How can I split the doc into chapters and maintain the header and footer page numbering as related to the original document? Cannot be in PDF.

I saw some good feedback on slow *opening* Word 2016 for Mac. My problem is SLOW *editing* large files. My solution is to cut the text and paste it into a new file. Does anyone have a better solution?

I had this question after viewing Word 2016 for Mac is SLOW with big documents.

Situation
  1. I have MS Word Documents with Tracking Off (MS Word setting) and Major Versions On (SharePoint Setting)
  2. Thw MS Word Document is Opened and I click on the Review Tab and then Compare.  I then select to Compare Specific versions.  In my example I have chosen to compare version 6 with version 1.
  3. Word opens an additional 3 documents at this point (version 1 and version 6 and a document called Compare1)
  4. Within the Comapre1 document I see all the differences between documents
  5. Within the Compare1 document I select within the Review Tab to Accept All Changes
  6. The problem is I want all the changes to be reflected in the ORIGINAL document I opened from within MS SharePoint.  However, it appears the changes are only reflected in the Compare1 document
  7. In addition if I do a  save as with the Compare1 document it will attempt to save the document locally not SharePoint

Very frustrating - Word does a great job of showing me the differences and then accepting or rejecting the changes, but no way to overwrite the original document I opened from within SharePoint.  I am sure I must be overlooking something - surely I can update the original without having to save off Compare1 locally and then loading Compare1 to SharePoint and then renaming the the Compare1 document to the Original document.
