Dang, I thought you were still using yellow pads and #2 pencils...............................Charlie Petty said:Yeah... so what :x
I even have a keyboard with an extra set of F keys on the left, complete with WP labels
and it is ever so much faster than having to move my hand to the mouse to do the same thing...
Back when I made the switch to MS Word, my roomate said the same thing. He was working as a paralegal and the legal industry was in deep with WP5.1 because you could buy every template in the world. So we argued about which one was better and which one was faster. I was admittedly somewhat of a novice with WP5.1 and he could just smoke with WP5.1. So when I told him that MS Word was faster, he just laughed at me.Charlie Petty said:and it is ever so much faster than having to move my hand to the mouse to do the same thing...
Quite so...The Art Department at the magazines or book publisher is going to re-do it all over anyway, in the font, leading, margins, etc. of their choice, so I waste no time on my end other than eye-comfort.
The first version of Word I tried probably had 100 functions, of which I used probably 20.Patrick Sweeney said:. . . I'm utterly disinterested in the options, features and alleged power of various word-wrangling programs. I don't care about templates, formatting, etc. I want words on electronic paper, and spell-checking buttons that aren't too "busy." . . .
Yes! This is a great program. I have it on a thumb drive with Firefox and Thunderbird on it. If you use MozBackup you can transfer all your Firefox and Thunderbird info to the thumb drive. Good for traveling. Just plug the thumb drive into any internet enabled P-C and it's just like home. Good for when lugging the laptop around is a burden.Shall I put in a plug for OpenOffice.org?
