An AppleScript to reduce large Word file sizes
Authored by: sfodden on May 21, '03 10:40:38AM

I'm a recent convert to Mac, so my Windows understanding may not translate, but in that OS Word would indeed grow huge files. The solution there was very like the hint posted, except that you would move the cursor one space up, after selecting all the text (i.e. selecting all but the last, invisible, "space"); then you would copy and paste into a new document. This was because the info that Word had gathered about the document was stored in that last invisible space, and that was what you wanted to leave behind.
