Word crashes when I paste from other documents

  • Follow


Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
Processor: Intel

Every time I try to paste anything into Word, it crashes - gives me the spinning ball and I have to force it to quit. <br>
It happens on other simple operations too (writing for instance), but paste makes a crash every time. <br>
I did some google, and tried to repair permissions, delete a lot of preference-files, examined my fonts for problems - even deleted normal.dotm. Nothing works!

One thing you don't specify & don't mention having done: Make sure both
Office (12.2.3) and OS X (10.6.2) are fully updated. Otherwise, nothing else
you do is likely to rectify the situation. Even if you do already have the
latest OS X update it might not be a bad idea to re-apply it using the Combo
Updater. The Combos are far more comprehensive than the versions delivered
by Software Update... Copy/Paste is actually a facility hosted by the OS.
You can get the Combo here:

<http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/macosx_updates/macosxv1062updat
ecombo.html>

Additionally, I'm not sure what "examining" fonts means, but Resolving
Duplicates & Validating Fonts are something which should be done. Also, the
font caches need to be cleared, but that is normally handled when the Mac is
shut down & restarted (which is something else you don't mention having
done). If you leave your Mac and/or Word running 24/7 that 'housekeeping'
isn't getting done & can quite easily account for the problems you describe.

If you still have the problem after following these suggestions reply with
any additional detail you can supply in order to pursue it further. Just as
a 'precautionary' request, please avoid the use of broad terminology such as
"Every time I try to paste anything" unless you literally mean it... Have
you actually tried copying *everything* you possibly could from *every*
conceivable source using *every* possible program? :-) No offense, but
specifics rather than generalizations are what best enable solutions.

That sounds like a corrupt document.

Once you have done what Bob suggested, try a Maggie:

The Maggie:

1. Create a new blank document
2. Carefully select all of the text in the bad document EXCEPT the last
paragraph mark 
3. Copy it. 
4. Paste in the new document.
5. Save under a new file name and close all, then re-open.

This technique for de-corrupting is known as "Doing a 'Maggie'", after
Margaret Secara from the TECHWR-L mailing list, who first publicised the
technique.

Cheers

Thanks for your answers, unfortunately they didn't solve my problems.  <br>
It happens in every new document, so &quot;doing a Maggie&quot; won't help. I really thought, that I couldn't paste from any program, but I have investigated a little further, and it seems that it is Safari that is causing problems. I can't paste from Safari into Word - but paste into Textedit works fine! <br>
I can paste from Firefox! and from Excel. <br>
It seems as the crash happens as soon as the clipboard contains something from Safari - I tried doing &quot;paste special&quot;, but Word crashed as soon as I touched the edit-menu. <br>
I hope this can bring us further. <br>
Best regards

This condition has four common causes:

*  Missing updates,

*  Corrupt document,

*  Corrupt Normal,

*  Bad webpage

First check that both the system and Office have the latest updates: this
issue will happen if updates are missing.

If it's happening in every new document, it's likely that your Normal
template is corrupted, which will pass a corruption to every new document
you create.

Quit Word and delete your Normal.dotm.  Word will create a new one when it
restarts.  If that fixes the issue in new documents, then you need to Maggie
the old ones.

Sorry:  You've given us almost no detail to work with so we can't offer
much.

No, you're not the first to have a similar problem, but I'm not sure how you
draw this conclusion... It appears to me that the 2 posters in that
conversation are the ones who have not responded to the latest replies from
John & myself. How that translates to 'us' having "given up" in any way I
honestly can't comprehend.

Frankly, when those who make the inquiries stop responding it's typically an
indication that a solution has been found -- they just haven't taken the
time to share their success story. Whether that success came as a result of
our efforts or from some other source we have no way of knowing. Often there
is no patent solution to certain situations because there could be any
number of causes resulting in comparable symptoms. If correspondents don't
choose to share their experience we can't be sure what might work or what
might not. The newsgroups are about *sharing*, not "grab & go".

What is your current version & update of Safari? Can you be more descriptive
about the kind of content you're copying? Maybe provide links to some of the
sites you're copying from?

FWIW, I'm using Office 12.2.3, OS X 10.6.2 & Safari 4.0.4 here & have not
encountered any kind of problem.

Word will crash in OS 10.6.2 if there are duplicate fonts.

De-activating them does not seem to help: you need to move them off the boot
drive and then reboot the system to get Word to lose interest in them.

That could be worth doing.  Search for Corentin's advice in here on
resolving font duplicates.

Reply oldcamel 12/27/2009 6:31:10 PM

It doesn't seem like reinstalling SL should be necessary. Did you apply the
10.6.2 Combo Update as I suggested in my first reply? I don't see any
indication one way or the other. I'd also try reinstalling & updating Safari
before resorting to an Archive & Install of the OS.

Another possibility;

I believe OS X has a clipboard preferences file which you can delete,
although I'm not sure where it is in SL. If so, a new one will be created
automatically. There is also a Safari preferences file you might remove to
see if that makes any difference.

Just out of curiosity, have a look in Word> Preferences - Edit, click the
Settings button in the Cut & paste options. Reply back with what those
settings are.

Deleting Safari preferences did not solve the problem. <br><br>I have not tried uninstall/reinstall of Safari. The main reason is, that I am convinced that Safari is &quot;innocent&quot;.

I've seen that in the past with additional input managers installed. 
Are you using any application/hack, etc that uses an input manager?? 
(check in /Library or ~/Library)

I'm having a similar problem, although mine also occurs when I'm cutting and 
pasting from within a Word document. It doesn't happen all the time, and I 
haven't been able to figure out a pattern to when it does occur -- but it 
does occur frequently. I haven't been able to identify any common denominator 
in the Console. 
I'm not running any duplicate fonts. 
I've done a complete reinstall of Office 04. 
I've done a complete re-install of Snow Leopard. 
This began happening at a time when I hadn't made any obvious changes to my 
OS or to Office.
I've been looking around online for a while and thus far no luck -- but this 
definitely does seem to be a problem that crops up again and again.

>  <br><br>I haven't any input managers installed - in fact I didn't even know what an &quot;input manager&quot; was until now. I haven't got any folders named &quot;input managers&quot; in my librarys. <br><br>But so far no solution still - I'm using Firefox or OpenOffice and at least I know what to do when a crash occurs: Copy something from Firefox to replace the Safari-data, restart Word and go on... <br><br>I am suspicious of my clipboard - if someone could tell me how to reset clipboard preferences or something like that...
