Word Stops During Save After You Change Subscriber Formats

PSS ID Number: Q102427 Article last modified on 03-07-1997

====================================================================== 5.10 MACINTOSH kbusage buglist5.10

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Macintosh, version 5.1

SYMPTOMS

If you create multiple subscriptions in a Word document with any of the formatting options (Best Format, Formatted Text [RTF], Unformatted Text, or Picture), changing at least two of the subscriptions to one of the other formats may cause Word to stop responding when you save the document. This problem can occur if you have not saved the document after the subscriptions have been created and before the format change.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Word for the Macintosh, version 5.1. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

WORKAROUND

To avoid this problem, save the document before changing the formats of the subscriptions. After this initial save, you can change the subscriber formats, and you can save the document as expected.

NOTE: If you save the document after a single subscriber format is changed, the save will work as expected.
