RE: Word 2007: Lessons on usability
It's easier? Oh yeah? Ok, tell me about those common-use items those of us not into or feeling the need of insanely complicated graphics but who instead work with words (text) can no longer find --if they exist at all. Here's a good example: I write and edit word text documents constantly, and it is usually very important to know the page count as I work. After a lot of time wasted on the ridiculously unhelpful "help" section and far too much time frittered away in experiementation, I still cannot find any way whatsoever to make the program display show 1) a standard page without the silly 3D top/bottom/side effects to mimic a piece of paper an inch above a flat surface 2) with clear marks of the bottom of the page (ie what in Word 2003 showed by a simple horizontal line with a little space above and below in which text did not appear) 3) and a page count including line/column information on the bottom bar. In other words, standard display for people not mentally caught up in wasting time and memory on mimicry effects while doing simple text documents.
