Word 2007/2010 - Bolds-all, Underlines-all, Un-bullets, Infuriating Styles/Templates
Posted on 2012-09-05
Using Word 2007 and 2010, when I try to bold or underline 1 highlighted word, the whole document bolds or underlines.
When I click undo, this normally unbolds/un-underlines the entire document while keeping the desired word bolded ~ but undo may also remove all the formatting, bulleting, and/or other bolding I had in the document - i.e. I start from scratch. Furthermore, the header and footer in my document seems to add a CR, which shrinks the documents body. This is unbelievably buggy!
This is truly infuriating…
I'm nearly certain this is a problem with the utterly ridiculous and overly complex "styles" in the new Word versions – possibly also templates. I should note that these troubles have been verified on new installations of 2007 and 2010 on newly reimaged PC's. I'm totally tired of fighting Word in order to underline and bold a freaking sentence!
Experts-Exchange's HTML-based word editor is easier and makes more sense than Word!! (Look! I bolded and underlined single words, and without issue!!!) :-)
