Chapter 10. Mac Word Annoyances

Chapter 10. Mac Word Annoyances

You can get almost any regular Mac user to tell you dozens of ways in which Mac OS X is superior to Windows, from its more "intuitive" interface to its BSD-based resistance to most of the less sophisticated forms of attack that can cripple even Windows XP systems updated with the latest patches.

But get that same Mac user talking about Word for the Mac, and you're more likely to hear a litany of annoyances than a paean of praise. Word for the Mac shares many of the features that have made Word for Windows a prerequisite of the modern business world, but not all of them. Even when Word for the Mac leapfrogs Word for Windows with a version—as Word 2004 leapfrogged Word 2003—and adds new features (for example, note recording), it still lags behind Word for Windows in many areas that are important to many users. Not surprisingly, Word for the Mac also has bugs—plenty of them. And even where it doesn't have bugs, much of its behavior is, well, hinky.
