Subject: RE: Tech: microsoft Word
Do forgive me if I suggest something that I'd suggest to a learner, just in case. Have you tried minimising the new open document to see if the earlier one is still there, hidden behind it? If someone opens a file and later tries to open it again (without having closed it) that "revert" business will certainly result. That's probably too obvious, but worth mentioning.

Rather than opening multiple documents in the same window, you might try in future opening two separate iterations of Word and tiling them on your screen; that way you can more easily copy-and-paste from one open document to another, with less risk of losing things.
