We can't find anything via the totally non-intuitive interface which seems to be designed by fashion models who are thinking "pretty", and forgetting that a word processor is a "tool", where the most important design features should be speed and ease of use -- the fewer clicks the better -- the fewer menus the better -- the simpler the better. In our opinion, the graphic interface of Word 2007 is the worst ever.
In any case, I had a Microsoft Word problem today and via Google found the marvelous Shauna Kelly website online for "making the most of Word in your business". I agree totally with Shauna who writes about Word versions:
"Word 2007: The new kid on the block. Disorganized. Can't find anything. Glamour does not outweigh substance. Word 2007 and I were never going to be friends."Actually, I am looking at alternative word processors. What I would actually like to have is a word processor where the screen is always the full document that I am working on, and where all the important most frequently-used commands, as once long ago in the ancient Atari Degas paint program -- to the degree possible -- are all located on one page via the right mouse click (so you can toggle quickly between document and commands), and I want the ability to organize those commands myself, rather than have them placed before me in a garbled fixed fashion by some nitwit.
"Word 2010: The milder, slightly better-behaved younger sister of Word 2007. Still can't find anything. Just have to put up with it."
In any case, today I needed to know how to keep tracked changes as changed in a document but not have those changes appear as changes in the saved version of the document. Shauna Kelly explained perfectly how to do that at How Track Changes in Microsoft Word work.
I am definitely bookmarking the Shauna Kelly site for future cases of necessary assistance with Microsoft Word and may be perusing that website a bit to find ways to use Microsoft Word's terrible graphic interface.
