[bookcourier] Re: problem with sluggish performance

On this topic once again, it seems that the size of the file may not be the 
issue as I have very large books which navigate well. The files I have 
trouble with arise from microsoft word documents which tend to have a lot of 
formatting at least the hard copy appears that way: in other words, a lot of 
sections with borders and segments created within the MS Word  program. 
These particular documents were not scanned into Kurzweil but rather 
imported directly from their electronic copy versions. I'm wondering if they 
somehow retained some of the formatting which book courier has trouble 
interpreting. Just a guess.
