    Does anyone else have issues with it? it seems to be extremely flaky, especially the outlined numbered format. I just dont get it, and its annoying me like crazy. Why can't it be like Windows Office!?:mad: I try to go to the next "note level" and it just cancels out my numbering...ARGH i gotta take notes in class!!!

    Do open source office apps do the same thing?

    It is very quirky. It tries to continue numbering when I want to start over. Tabbing is an adventure as well. I always have to work with it to get any numbering I want right.

    yeah, i dont know how microsoft got away with this issue...

    Sometimes it refuses to tab to go down to the next note level, other times it works, and then randomly it decides to stop numbering/bulleting altogether when i press tab...then it decides to switch the numbering format like from ROman numerals to digits....I hope 2008 is nothing like this, or microsoft wont be getting my money.

    Weird...any quirkiness on this front I've observed on Word 2004 is pretty much exactly the same quirkiness I got on 2000 and 2003 on Windows. And on .X for that matter....

    If I wanted superb and intuitive, I would've bought a Mac. Oh, wait, damn. :(

    Can someone make a new "Owned" pic of the boy in China getting eaten by the Crocodile after he and friends were picking on it?

    Yes, I'm going to hell.
