    As a writer, I rely -- and love -- MS Office Word on the Mac. I have to admit, however, that I'm not up to speed on all its features, specifically how to configure the program. So, my question has two parts:

    1. When you make changes to your layout, toolbars, turning off the PDF icon, etc, how do you save these changes? Every time I start up Word it looks just like it did last time. Template.dot?

    2. What are some suggested layout options for better workflow? I feel like I'm only using half the power of Word. Anyone care to provide some screenshots of their Word setup and some effective (e.g. time-saving) layout examples?

    I vow to tame the beast that is Word! ;)

    I will be interested to see any responses as I don't feel I use Word to its capacity...though it may be at my capacity. I like Word, but it's definitely quirky. And it's also why I wish iBooks had higher resolution screens! I don't like the toolbox layout in addition to my working page on the 14" iBook at 1024X768.
