I used to be a true power user when it comes to Word. Heck, long long ago I was a power user of what I still consider the best word processing software ever, WordStar. MicroPro, WordStar’s developer went out of business. I did learn a bit of WordPerfect, which wasn’t as far as I’m concerned and quickly began to learn to use Word.
Now I’m almost a rank beginner again because a computer upgrade has given me the newer version of Word… what is it, Word 2007 – I can’t even find the version number. In fact, even using help I can’t find the version number.
Nor can I easily add page numbers. I’ve finally figured out how to capitalize every word, but what happened to Title Case?
What I don’t understand is why MicroSoft felt the change would benefit anyone. I’m sure I’m not the only blogger who has talked about this, but it does make me crazy.
Of course, a lot of programmers got paid which is probably a good thing.
I may have to change my billing to hourly while I come up to speed.
And you know what, literally as I was writing this, a writer friend of mine called to see if I could help her with Word 7!
We laughed, cried and sorted each other out.
