Word: Fix freezing issues when selecting text in Catalina
Since updating to Catalina, Word freezes whenever I select text—even just a few words. I have to manually backspace if I want to delete something and it takes forever if I have a lot of text to delete. If I forget and select text, it freezes for a good few seconds. Sometimes I have to force quit.
All you have to do - is to reset parameter RAM in your mac!

After that it works great!
