I keep getting the message: "Fields Nested Too Deeply" in a simple (though large) Word document. I have not created any macros or done anything in this document other than straight up writing and editing. I also seem to get very long periods of "beachball" where I can do nothing but wait --sometimes quite a while-- to resume working on the doc at all. I don't know if these are related, and the "beachball" problem preceded the "Fields Nested Too Deep" by a few weeks but they're both constant now.
I am working on a 2018 MacBook Air.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Your description suggests the document has acquired some of corruption. Corrupt documents can often be 'repaired' by inserting a new, empty, paragraph at the very end, copying everything except that new paragraph to a new document based on the same template (headers & footers may need to be copied separately), closing the old document and saving the new one over it.
