Technical writers have reported using Word for documents upwards of 10,000
pages. Adding illustrations will affect performance somewhat; be sure you
have plenty of RAM and available HD space. When possible, insert the
illustrations inline and use "picture placeholders" (Tools | Options | View)
to represent them except when you're actually working with them. Working in
Normal view also helps, especially if you disable background repagination.
