Word Mac version 16.15 is much slower than 16.10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using Word Mac in our integration and after updating to latest version of Word, our integration has become very slow.

    Word Mac version 16.15 is much slower than 16.10.Are there any API changes?


    We traced the problem to the below sample Apple Script code. We use this code to add/insert bookmarks to each paragraph. This code while executing with version 16.15 is very slow in compare to 16.10.



    repeat with i from 1 to number of paragraphs of theDocument

                    tell application "Microsoft Word"

                                    set currentParagraph to paragraph i of theDocument

                                    set textObject to text object of currentParagraph

                                    set textContent to content of textObject

                                    set bookmarkName to "XXX" & i - 1

                                    set newBookmark to make new bookmark at theDocument with properties {name:bookmarkName, text object:textObject}

                    end tell

    end repeat
