WTF, Word?

WTF, Word?

Postby Remou on Fri Jun 24, 2011 8:44 am

I am back using Word, which would be a very good punishment for recalcitrant criminals, though heading for the cruel and unusual side of the coin. And speaking of heading, what I wanted was a small graphic that repeated on every page, but not in the header. There is no automatic option, but I can cut and paste as well as the next guy, if not better, so off I go, merrily pasting on each page. A couple of pages later I notice things are looking a little odd, but I continue pasting, a tad goggle eyed, but that is normal with Word. I then go back to find out why my graphic is drifting down and across the page. Word has added 0.4cm incrementally for each paste, top and side.

WTF, Word?

Egads. I don't use most of the "features" in Word. I just assumed you could add report, group, and page headers like in Access reports. I sure don't see how after looking around. Another MS fail.
