Word 2010 is lagging

When typing or holding delete you can notice a lag.
However it is not present on the last line of the first page.
It seems to get worse as the document goes.
It is a *.docx
There is about 10 words plus 10 shapes with text in them on each page.

Could be lots of reasons as to why it's lagging. What are your computer specs? And are you running anything else while you are running Office? Give us some more information

Specs

The specs are
Amd Phenom Quad core 2.2ghz
4GB 800mhz ram
OS Win 7 32 bit
Office 2010 Pro Plus

I have tried with no other apps running and it does it.

It seems to be something to do with the document

Interesting specs (based on that it should run without any issue or lags) how big is your document? Sometimes if you have a large document Word can sometimes lag , especially if you have lots of images in the document. What kind of document is it your working on?

I also think that Word is writing up a back up copy to your hard drive too, could also explain why it's lagging a bit.

The document is 260KB which is 13 pages
No images just work objects and text
It's a storyboard
It only lags on this particular document

interesting. i would love to help but i forgot i only have 2007. i have a friend who owns a 2010 copy. i'll try to check your image in his pc.

edit

it turns out, i can open a 2010 document just fine .. my word was not lagging nor did i notice anything different.. maybe it is your copy of word that might be problematic.. have you tried making the said document on another pc?

Questions: Why are you running a 32 bit OS with a 64 Bit system? If you were running a 64 Win 7 then you could be running the 64 bit Microsoft Office 2010, and not having this problem. I have basically the same system on my Windows Machine, and I work with huge files (up to a 1,000 pages (editor)) with little to no slow down whatsoever (enjoy the 64 bit office).

how'd you know it was installed as 64bit? i did not or rather do not know how to check .. if it was indeed installed as 64bit, i believe you could install it again as 32bit and still use the same key.. im not sure about that though.. i've never installed a 64bit program into my 32bit system.. i thought it would not install so i never bothered trying..
