ResolutionUse one of the following workarounds:
- Use plain text instead of rich text when pasting large chunks of text into the text editor dialogs. This will lead to zero increase in the use of GDI objects.
- Using rich text, paste the text into the text editor dialogs for four or five worksheets, then save the workbook, then close Desktop, then open the workbook in a new Desktop process. This will prevent a large accumulation of GDI objects in a single Desktop process.
CauseThis behavior is due to a Windows limitation on GDI object usage.
