Mac Microsoft Word Unhappy Spinning Wheel
New MAC Pro. OS X 10.9. app - MS Word for MAC. Spinning wheel every few minutes, all morning, while attempting to edit 20 pp doc. After researching problem: Checked activity utility, no apparent problems, except Word not responding. Plenty of disk space, memory, etc. Closed all other apps (except Webroot). Using only styles to format. Before today, performance seemed to be getting sluggish. My first Apple computer. Blech! It's touchy and difficult, plus I don't know my way around very well. I only changed to MAC because I couldn't tolerate Win 8 -- what have I done?? More important, what can I do to fix this? What do I need to know to prevent it happening again?
