Good to hear about Pages, this is my number one choice going forward.

I downloaded Office 2011 trial and it seems that I can now open and work with the document that crashed Office 2008. I'll work with 2011 a few days and see if it really does work - some images seem to be missing but at least it runs. Maybe I am forced to upgrade although why I should pay Microsoft to fix their bugs is beyond me.

Thanks for the advice about virtual windows but I don't have that level of trust in MS Office - it has always been problematic with big complicated docs even under Windows on a PC. My doc is really complicated - 350 pages created over 4-5 years by 10-20 authors with lots of tables, images, footnotes, etc.

Thanks for the different advice.
