Oh, I agree!!! Word's 'Master docs' are from one of the sub-basements of hell. A disused one at that, to judge how little effort has apparently gone into fixing the long-known problems of that "feature".
I almost did not send the post on because of that suggestion, but the others in it made sense, so I decided to let the commons decide. <g> Grant -----Original Message----- From: framers-bounces+grant.hogarth=reuters....@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-bounces+grant.hogarth=reuters.com at lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Fred Ridder Sent: Friday, May 19, 2006 9:40 AM To: framers at FrameUsers.com Subject: RE: Word & Long Docs (WAS re: Career advice-- focus on FM or Word?) >===================================================== >Word 2003: Six Slick Tricks for Long Docs <snip> >3. Use a Master Document Now *there's* a piece of advice I will *never*, *EVER* follow. I lost a week of my life to retyping (and re-drawing figures for) an entire product manual that the product designer had written in Word using the then-new Master Document feature. Never again will I take that risk, no matter how many times Microsoft tells me that all the bugs have been fixed. (Look how well they've done fixing the bugs in the autonumbering feature...) My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel. Fred Ridder Intel Parsippany, NJ _________________________________________________________________ Don't just search. Find.
