More good news for programs that respect your freedom, like LibreOffice, or AbiWord. With free (as in freedom) programs like these, you don’t need as much RAM, CPU, or disk space as you would with MS Office. Upgrading and downgrading are both significantly easier, so you can avoid bugs like these.

Sure, free is a worthy competition still, it is in this case also a matter of convenience, at least for me… Used MS office since '97 (also used MS WinWord 6.x) and am still… Not 2013 anymore though, 2016 only, last old 2013 32-bit install went to silicon heaven a month ago replaced by a 2016 64-bit install. On a general level though, you are still good to go using whatever version, 2010 onwards.
To be frank, the most striking difference 2013-2016 is the ‘wannabe web’ interface which they started with 2013 and developed further by simplifying…

No, no need to upgrade for upgrades sake. Most people only touches fragments of the power found in the packages anyway.
Personally I use Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Visio (sold separately) mostly.
Back in 200x I also used Publisher, but today I find I can do it all using just Word. I also notice I no longer use Excel to create tables and other visual representations either as I do even that in Word.
A ting that strikes me is that it does not take much knowledge to impress people and simply grouping graphics together seemingly getting three links in one graphic is met with disbelief :bigsmile:

I created a document just to show you a little what you can do there with an explanation for some of the effects if you’re interested. I do not know if it contains any incompatibilities with 2010, so I added a PDF which ‘almost’ manages to get everything right (apart from the ‘overdo it’ final part where parts of the outer frame get lost): ClubMyCE_Word.zip :wink:
