I have avoided Microsoft Word for a decade now--but I've been forced to use it because of a compueter crash and because Norton dosen't have Word Perfect. Word is a miserable program, and I don't know why anyone would prefer it. I'm spending my days now trying to figure out why spaces come out of nowhere and some lines won't print and the fonts change whenever they feel like it, apparently. I'd rather be writing. I'm glad someone else agrees with me. A typwriter would be easier than this. So the rest of my day will be filled with trying to find a program that works. Scrivener looks good but isn't compatible with Windows-I'm shocked! Excuse me for venting.
