    OK, I am getting fucking really fucking pissed off because of this stupid auto-format shit that fucks everything up constantly. For example, I have an essay entitled "Killer Culture" and I highlight "Killer Culture" and try to center it, then it will center everything! I only fucking highlighted KILLER CULTURE

    and then when I want to fucking indent a paragraph, it indents the entire fucking document!

    FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT seriously fucking make shit so fucking complicated. Can anyone help me? Thank you


    I'm a hardware guy, not a software. This fucking pisses me off. It's so fucking retarded I don't know why they fucking made this the default setting. :sadwavey:

    yeah office 07 has some probs. My scroll wheel only works part of the time. It's annoying as hell but generally, I like ofc 07 so far.

    for fucks sake go into options and change the background to black!!! looks 100x better than the blue. also if you are in xp use silver instead of blue.

    I like the blue. I'll try the others, but tbh the blue is nice. (normally I have the zoom set to page-width... But for this demo I changed it)

    This has nothing to do with anything. It isn't even useful info by itself.

    I have personally not had any problems. Therefore, your issues are user error.

    Styles are a wonderful thing. They used to be a pain in the ass, but after I started using a program called Help and Manual (by EC Software) to write user manuals, I learned just how incredibly useful styles can be when used correctly.

    (Whether or not Office 2007 suffers from the same style rot as previous versions, I don't know. Help and Manual stores everything in XML, so it's impossible for styles to get tangled.)

    Just got a copy of this myself, £38 because I'm a student. £550 in PC World.

    I did a bug fix on my installation of Office 2007. I uninstalled in and reinstalled 2003.

    Office 2k7 really shows where Microsoft put their best development team in. Unfortunately, they had to release Vista at about the same time.

    From my short time using it today at work, its pretty badass. Apart from the ribbon menu system (which I took care of by reverting back to the menu system) its a big improvement from Office 2k3.
