In the middle of a paragraph, it will suddenly indent every line except the first, for no reason, since it does it without my accidentally pressing the wrong key. Drives me nuts.
It also arbitrarily resets one or both margins for part or all of the document. For *******’s sake!
And it suddenly changes the colour of corrections to a uniform red for no reason. ********* it!
It brings up Research (which I never, and would never, use) for no reason that I can think of except perhaps inadvertently touching the space bar – how can I turn this off ? (When you press F1 and type Research, it does not even tell you how to turn it on, so I have no idea how to avoid it)
When I highlight something and underline / italicise / bold it, Word applies the instruction to the whole document; and I have to press the Undo button to get rid of it (curiously one press undoes the rest of the document but not the highlighted section which stays underlined, etc.)
When Word flags something as wrong (green underline) and I click Ignore, it usually doesn’t ignore it but keeps on flagging it. Same for saying a word or phrase is in another language – it keeps coming back about it.
1. I want to be able to open the dictionary then and there, and remove the appalling suggestions that Microsoft gives.
2. Add to dictionary – why not a choice of which dictionary to add to ? you only get the current one (for instance, I would like to have a dictionary of names, separate from ordinary words; and I would like to keep languages separate.)
3. Also the dictionary does not appear to accept two-word terms
Incidentally you really have to wonder about who compiled their version of a ‘correct’ English grammar and why they were allowed anywhere near a keyboard.
And just in case anyone knows the answer Excel 2010
I have not yet managed to understand the reason for having a background screen, and have no use for one, is it possible to dispense with it because it just gets in the way ?
Grateful for any help, adj
