  9. kitblu says

    I use Office 2007 and it changed 2 features in Word that I miss. I hope that they have been changed back. The one that bothers me most is part of the change case menu. It used to be that I could capitalize a title; now I have to capitalize every word and then change the capitals that don't belong ('cause words like of, and, a, etc. aren't capitalized unless they are the first word in the title).

  152. salleefur says

    I really really miss having Word – so that in itself make this prize something I would prize. The rest of the fabulous features I've only read about and never tried – so I am very eager to try everything! The Footnotes, Endnotes, and Tables of Contents would be a real godsend and I can think of lots of ways I might use Powerpoint and One Note. Suffice it to say, I've REALLY wanted this software for a very long time – and have just never had enough "spare change" at any given time to purchase it!

  188. dog training sarasota says

    One thing I’d really like to say is the fact that car insurance cancelling is a horrible experience and if you’re doing the appropriate things like a driver you may not get one. A lot of people do obtain the notice that they have been officially dumped by their own insurance company and many have to struggle to get supplemental insurance after the cancellation. Affordable auto insurance rates are often hard to get from cancellation. Understanding the main reasons with regard to auto insurance termination can help motorists prevent getting rid of in one of the most essential privileges accessible. Thanks for the strategies shared by means of your blog.
