Dictionary crash.

When I had 32M physical memory, I had dictionary problems--incredible
slowness opening the dictionary and closing Rev application, and frequent
crashes after choosing a search term before the definition window opened.

After upgrading memory, no problems. But you CAN still use Rev itself with
only minor issues such as the delay on quitting, which is not bad, as long
as you avoid the Dictionary; use any part of Help except it. How do you look
up words? Download Metacard and use its help stack. The combined needs of
Rev and Metacard running together will be less than Rev with its own
dictionary. I never had a crash or problem doing that.

Even if you have more than 32M physical memory, but are having problems, I
suggest you give it a try and see if it works for you.

(Down the road when you have some free time, extra memory is cheap and some
stores install it for free! It makes the whole computer behave differently,
and none more differently than Rev. -- :-) )
