Need WP in 64 Bit version

I am personally working with increasingly large and complex document files due to index codes but primarily due to incorporating numerous digital illustrations directly into the text (I used to print a whole book out and paste in the drawings, but now I am inserting them right into the text). this is great but WP has a hard time handling these files. I MUST turn off auto-save or WP tends to freeze while auto-saving. this occurs especially if I am typing when the save begins. I manually and frequently save files as I work. I recently upgraded my computer solely in the hope that it would help WP handle these files. I doubled my DDR4 RAM from 16 to 32 GB. I got a new, more sophisticated graphics card which took me from 2 GB on the card to 6. I got a new PCI3 M.2 SSD and that has really made a huge difference in how WP can handle these files. However, on my most dense files it STILL, at times, goes into a second to a few seconds of not responding mode when I manually save. When I do save I cannot do anything else on the keyboard. WP does go back to normal from not responding and does save the file. This problem was happening to a much greater extent prior to these upgrades. Before beginning work, I clear out temp, %temp%, and prefetch files and sometimes I do this a few times a day as well. I am also running WPLook on every file I intend to work on every day, as these files are quite old with ongoing revisions (some started as far back as 1986) so if there are problems I can catch them asap. All that helps. I think it would help a lot too if you would release WP in a 64 bit version, as that would give the app access to more RAM. PLEASE DO THIS FOR US. I have used WP since about 1985. Although I have WORD I do not use it for daily work. I love WP. Please make it so I can continue to use it with these large files. Time to bring WP into the 21st century with 64 Bits. (Word has been available in 64 bit for a while.)
