Office 2007-Great stuff!

I had to download Office 2007 (trial version) because my old Office crashed and burned last week. I could not, for the life of me, reinstall it so….frustration turned to desperation and I downloaded a 60 day trial of Office 2007. I love it! Word is aesthetically pleasing to even look at. When you want to change a typeface or size of a font, indent…several options, a ghosty box appears over a word you have selected and you can change it right there. No more traveling clear to the top of the screen to make changes. Those of us with large monitors will appreciate not having to cover so much real estate.

It also publishes blogs like a dream. You write your entry and then it posts to the blog for you. Too easy! I also have been playing with Note—but I am not sure where the notes are going and how to get them back. More on that later!

I have a good playing gig in April-just in time to hand the money over to Microsoft! The price at Academic Superstore is just about manageable,

A caution—I have to remember to save "backwards" so that others can read it. There are also readers that I can send with documents to that others can read this version of Word. More later!
