ALL MS Office programs, I am sick of spending 3 times the time I need to on grad school projects because PowerPoint automatically capitalizes words at the beginning of of a line, not a sentence, a line.
This really sums it up. Why does it do that? Why? Who saw that as an improvement?
Why can't I open two different instances of PPT or Excel but I can have as many Word windows as I want?
Why does it now take 27 steps to put error bars on a graph when it used to take 4?
Why does it slavishly retain its stupid formatting for bullets and numbering so that I have to manual change it every time? If it automatically bulletizes or numbers things, why does it not automatically adjust when I put in new format parameters? (If you wonder why I don't just use MS format for these things... no. I want it MY way.
And really, don't get me started on when it adds a line between paragraphs, except when it doesn't.
But ultimately, the thing that drives me crazy? MS has a usability division, whose entire responsibility is to make the software easier to use
. I honestly do not know what they do over there.
