One of the things hithertokt did not mention in her fabulous Formatting Tricks with Microsoft Word EduPD video, was how to avoid a murderous rampage when the program doesn’t do what you want it to do.
Say, as a surely random example, you are making a monthly calendar that spans two, side-by-side pages. And say at the top of the calendar you want to include a text box on each one to label the unit, skills focus, texts, etc.
This is purely a random example.
And the text boxes are the exact same size because you copied and pasted one to make the other. And the tables are the exact same size, because you copied and pasted one to make the other.
And yet. The tables won’t align. They won’t align because the space between the table and text box on one page is larger than the other FOR NO OBVIOUS REASON.
Now, I consider myself fairly proficient with this piece of shit software, and I’ve checked the sizes, the text wrap settings, and everything else I could think of. There aren’t any random spaces/line breaks.
So. I’m going to walk away for a bit. And probably eat something because all the cursing makes me think I’m hangry.
But. There should be a disclaimer when using Microsoft Word. It should say: While this program can do many things, sometimes it won’t do what you want it to do for no obvious reason, and therefore may cause murderous urges. Please eat before using.
