I need to edit a file that was saved in Rich Text Format (*.RTF) using Microsoft Word, but today I've learned that the regular old WordPad that comes with Windows can open humongous *.RTF files that Microsoft Word (bundled with Office 365 ProPlus) simply can't. Word apparently has a 512MB upper limit on file size.
Now there are plenty of tutorials on how to reopen Word documents that exceed size boundaries (you can change the file type from *.DOCX to *.ZIP and remove extraneous images from inside the compressed file to reduce the overall file size, for example; see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/troubleshoot/word/file-larger-than-512-megabytes). But what can you do with a humongous *.RTF file to which you can't apply that technique?
I suppose I could chop the document down to smaller documents using WordPad and then open the smaller files in Word. But is that it? That's tedious.
