I created a small (9 page) document with some embedded graphics. When I try to save this document as an LWP file, I first get a warning that my temporary disk space is too low. I'm used to getting this warning every time WordPro saves regardless of how much free disk space there is so I click OK and ignore it. The I get the error message that my file (with the full pathname that I'm saving to) "cannot be found" and my file is not saved. This happens whether there's a previous version there to be overwritten or not. Obviously I want to know why WordPro won't save my file and what to do about it. Why would it complain about not being able to find the file I'm asking it to save to.
My machine is somewhat low on disk space. I beleive the document would be about 750K-1Meg cause of the graphics (see below). I have about 20Meg free so seems to me that shouldnt be the problem.
I initially imported BMPs, not resizing them first *and* with the "fast graphics" option checked. I deleted those and imported JPGs, properly sized. The I read about and unchecked the "fast graphics" option. Then I deleted all the graphics and replaced them all with links to the JPG files but none of this allowed me to save the file, or reduced the file size when saved as a DOC file.
I *can* save the document in Word format (didnt try others). Its 750K-1M when i do (it varies, despite I havent done anything to the document)
I'm running Windows 98. I tried to save to "C:\My Documents" but tried other directories and other drive volumes without success.
I tried deleting files in TEMP folder. Some were zero length and wouldn't delete but this had no effect.
