10 Microsoft Word 2013 Headaches And How To Cure Them
Posted 14 February 2013 - 08:35 AM
Microsoft has a nasty and very irritating habit of changing things with new releases as they make it worst and not better by changing features and removing features. They stupidly think they they are making it better when in fact when they are making it worst.
Shame on Microsoft. They are run by imbeciles.
I also hate and will never use Windows 8, and anxiously are waiting for Windows 7 SP2 (maybe never) and the upcoming Windows 9 which Microsoft is rushing to release ASAP as they know how much users hate Windows 8.

Fear not: It's just a matter of time until third parties start making add-ons to improve the Office interface.
Having said that, what's more amusing is the by now familiar pattern taking place in these (and other) comments areas, where the Microsoft acolytes and pay-for-posts immediately square off against the Microsoft detractors.

Arrogant companies can never win. When a company constantly pi**** users off by doing what the company think is best, instead of responding to user needs and requirements, they can hardly expect to receive any sympathy or understanding.

So, SO true.
And annoyingly, I suspect that among the 10% of features that get used frequently are: AutoCorrect and Dictionary.

We just went out and purchased 10 copies Office 2010 PRO at a great price, for future use.
We also will NOT/NEVER use Windows 8 ever.
Our preferance id Windows 7 PRO and Office 2010 PRO, and if MS ever tries to stop us then we off to Linux (http://www.zorin-os.com/premium.html) we are already using it on 5 machines and our worker love it.
BEWARE Microsoft you are killing your client base, and they wont return.

I always recommend Kingsoft Office for people who still want the old-school UI (in addition to the tabs), as it does a pretty decent job loading a majority of the Office file formats.

My wife also refuses outright to use Outlook 2013 because of the stark white backgrounds for e-mail lists and messages that, sadly, cannot be changed.
Anyone considering "upgrading" from Office 2010 for personal use should be forewarned: change for the sake of change is not the answer.

Also, MS Works 2005-2006 have full-fledged Word 2002 in them, and have really great photo editors. I was able to install MS Works alongside MS Office. But I forget if I put it on the Win7 machines. I think only MS Works 2006 could go on Win7, but maybe I'm wrong.
Users here in PC World report that they can run MS Office 2000 and even prior, on Win8, though the users in MS Answers forum and at MS' own Win8 compatibility website say it cannot be done.

I will not be upgrading to Office 2013. The whole user interface is terrible - a step in the wrong direction. Bad move. Also, forcing users to save to SkyDrive by default leads to big security concerns. Very bad idea.
For the next while, I'm sticking with Office 2010. In my opinion, Office 2010 is best Office suite ever, and Windows 7 is the best OS.

Oh, wah. MS will never stop you from using 7. They won't stop people from using older versions either, even though it's a stupid decision not to upgrade.

Probably you should say more, see a lot of opinion and not a lot of facts, let alone an example besides Openoffice just cause its free??? Waste of electrons even replying to such rubbish.
