A Program That Keeps Getting Worse

This program had two strikes against it in my book from the beginning. The first is that I do not like Microsoft’s attitude toward consumers. The second is that I do not like cloud-based programs. It is ridiculous to pay for a program year after year and end up owning NOTHING. The program earned its final strike as I used it. I have used the cloud-based Microsoft Word program for two years, and I HATE it. How the program functions changes with no notice at all, and Microsoft NEVER considers the needs of its customers in its changes. I am a college professor. My needs are not those of corporate executives. One of the recent changes that happened in the middle of the night is that top and bottom margins are not visible in PRINT LAYOUT view or any other view. I GRADE material in headers and footers, and I NEED TO SEE THAT INFORMATION. While that is the most important way “improvements” have hindered my work, there have been others that are annoying because they demonstrate either a lack of logical thinking or complete disinterest in being user-friendly. For example, it used to take one action to select a particular color I use when grading papers. Of course, Microsoft has never been particularly interested in making its programs user friendly. We know that. That’s why we use Macs, right? :-D

Where to Begin...

You'd think that people who have been designing software for decades would know how to make a program function well. That is not the case with Microsoft word. Yes, it has functions that other word processors don't. I downloaded it specifically to use the "Compare Documents" function which Pages does not have. It crashed on me four times in the first five minutes and even made my Mac freeze. The promotion on the app store claims it's "Beautiful," but the conception of beauty over at Micosoft is definitely not one to which I subscribe. There are so many windows, menus, buttons, and graphics it's an assault on my vision. I cannot easily understand where to go or which menu to navigate to find the things I'm looking for. OVERDESIGNED is the appropriate word for this piece of crap, which brings up multiple windows for opening documents, and the compare function kept asking me for access to documents I wasn't even using. I do not understand how a company with as much history as Micosoft can put out such a total piece of garbage, and if it weren't for this one feature I would never have downloaded it in the first place, and am thankful I will never have to use it again except in similar emergencies.

Doesn't even deserve 1 star!

Absolutely, the most frustrated I have ever been with a peice of software!!! What an absolute pile of garbage! It took me through the ringer with entering all kinds of personal info and followed that by making me confirm all of the info I just entered. After all of that, it kept prompting me to authorize my AppleID to proceed, but it just kept prompting me to authorize again. I even logged into my Apple account to make sure everything was good on my end and it was; Microsoft just couldn't authorize and proceed in one step. It pretty much just shorted out everftime! This is exactly the type of absurdity that propelled me to leave Microsoft products as a whole years ago. Their flagship piece of software can't even make it past the introduction screen!
