Microsoft Word drives me up the wall, as do many other fine Microsoft products.
I would die a happy man if I could spend five minutes alone with whatever moron first hatched the idea, "Hey, let's have our software predict what the user wants to do and make changes without asking permission! Then let's make it really, really hard to make any changes from what we think the document should look like!" Seriously, five minutes. Just me, him and a sock full of nickels. Good times.
Wait! Wait for me! I'm coming too! We can experiment with US currency v. UK currency in the sock to see what gives the most satisfactory result.
And we can give each other an alibi afterwards.
I hate Word. I hated it when my office switched from WordPerfect to Word. WordPerfect is obedient. It does what I tell it to do, and if we get confused, it will graciously Reveal Codes, letting you delete or add exactly what is needed. I could make WordPerfect do anything except sing and dance, and it probably would have done that if I'd ever really needed a singing, dancing document. While I've never tried it, I understand WordPerfect is great for translating a document into HTTP, preciesly because you can get inside the formatting.
Word is a bully that tries to push me around. Oh you don't need that, look at all of these templates. None of which are acceptable to my office's standards, not to mention that if you use a standard Word template, it screams, "I used a standard Word template, because I have less imagination and talent that your average worm!" Okay, maybe that last one is just me.
