I'd like to thank Office 2008...especially word for almost screwing up my entire essay. I started writing the essay on my BlackBook which runs 08 and then decided i wanted to switch to my iMac running Office 04 for comfort of a bigger screen, proper keyboard & mouse. So i tried to save my work and make it 04 compatible and thats where it all goes horribly wrong. First office 08 tells me there's a compatibility issue, word 6.0/95 options are set. (Pic ) I think no big i'll just change the preferences to 2000-2004 & X as suggested so i do that...(Pic 3) I then tried to save again but...No dice...back to square one(Pic 4) So i had to save the files as is just so i dont lose everything. Obviously the doc didnt render correctly on my iMac (Pic 5) displaying big red Xs instead of Letters (Pic 6) So i had to boot into windows and use office 03 to copy/paste over important sections, redraw my diagram from scratch (not easy), resave before it worked on the iMac. I tried to re-install Office 08 from scratch to see if it would help but no dice. I've boycotted Office 08 since then. Useless POS. Just wanted to rant cos i could've been seriously SOL with my essay.
