size limits in Word 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a client that is worried about how large of a file actually, how many pages and pictures a word document can handle.  He is a writer and has always used something called Latex and a few other programs to create his books.  He faces the problem of Windows 7 and his Latex does not work right and is looking for other solutions.  The last book he wrote was about 600 pages with graphics and full color pictures on about 1/3 of the book.  I am no writer, never will be, but he also mentioned that this other program did all the "typeset" for him and layout for direct publication.  I am way out of my field with any answers, so I am looking to the MS-World for help. 

    Bottom line, what should a writer use to write very large books? 

    Thanks

    Gordon.
