Make It Fit in 2003?
No you haven't because it doesn't exist that only came latter after M$ copied it from Word Perfect.
The strange thing here is that I to consider WP far superior to Office and I was derided by staff when I first started this business because I used WP. They all suggested I get with the program and switch to Word to which I just replied I'm more comfortable with WP and you can use what you like except for the places where we are legally required to use WP instead of Word.
Now more than a few years after I started this business they all use WP and moan like hell when they are forced to use Word for anything. While I can not point to any specific Feature it's all of them that are in WP that are not in Office and the ease of use with everything in WP over Word.
The Revel Codes is just a small example of where WP far exceeds Word capabilities. The Make It Fit was 4 Mouse Clicks to make a document fit to a Page Count which was latter adopted by the Office Team at Microsoft and because I use it a lot it's one of the things I'm much more familiar with.
But to be perfectly honest it's always just plain and simple Painful when I have to use Office for anything. The little problems with Formatting in one version of Office not being correctly recognized in another and the need to change the Default Output from DocX in the latter versions is a major Stumbling Block to it's wide spread adoption in places that have to submit documents in DOC format occasionally.
If you use Office all day every day it may not be an issue but for my customers/clients who are not Power Users and do other things that may not even involve a computer for their daily work it's something that they have to either remember or not move onto newer Office Suites so that they can get their work done in a fashion that is acceptable to that business.
When Microsoft finally prevents Office 2003 from working on their newer OS's that's going to eventually lead to those customers who are required to use it to move away from all Microsoft Products. Not going to happen tomorrow but if things stay the same it will eventually happen.
