After months of giving Microsoft Office 2007 a chance and doing my best to learn how to use their stupid new settings....it still sucks. Clearly Microsoft decided that its users are idiots and the only way they can operate software is if the software can actually guess what the user will do. They constantly force their own formatting while making it extremely difficult to find "advanced" settings to change things. For example I have spent the last 20 minutes trying to add error bars to a plot...simple error bars. After trying to find info in the help I finally gave up and just decided to click on every tab available. Finally I found a button that said "error bars". Phew, finally the saga was going to be over...oh wait, for some reason it doesn't comprehend why someone won't want to put horizontal error bars. Furthermore, they don't even give me an option of how to specify how large they should be...they simply add vertical error bars that stretch between each point. If you haven't begun to waste your life trying to figure out Microsoft Office 2007 I highly recommend you go and find a different software package to use...it is garbage. I've decided to continuously send message to Microsoft reiterating how they completely failed at their "improvements" to the program.
Ok, rant over...I'll get back to work now.
