I usually have (from Tools - Options) 'clipboard history' enabled, which isn't by default. Is this a possible culprit creating the low memory issue in Atlantis? I also copy & paste to/from other word processors, and wonder if that could have contributed? It all depends on the size of the fragme...

If you right-click the entry for Atlantis Word Processor in Task Manager, you can choose to have the values in percentage. This is generally more telling.

It is very doubtful that installing LibreOffice would corrupt Atlantis. However, running CorelDraw + LibreOffice “combined with a large number of big documents open in Atlantis” might overload the best of systems. Could you please try running Atlantis as usual and press “Ctrl+Shift+Escape” to invoke...

‘Out of memory’ relates to the amount of RAM available to Atlantis. How much hardware RAM do you have? How much RAM is actually being used (percentage value) when you are running Atlantis with several bulky documents? You’ll get this kind of information in the Windows Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Escape).

If CTRL+SHIFT+M is reassigned to a specific style with 0.75 first line indent in Normal.rtf, CTRL+SHIFT+M becomes a toggle for that new style, hence for that specific indent value. It does not matter if the indent is applied through direct formatting or through a dedicated style.

The words you give as examples are rather commonly used over the Internet.

Re: Tiny arrows at the first of each heading

Here I am getting these tiny arrows in front of headings 1,2, and 3. I've tried to delete them but they're locked there.
