It was recently brought to my attention that I have been advising against MS Word 2010, but have not explained WHY I prefer MS Word 2003 over MS Word 2010 for preparing Kindle files.
Here is an example:
My task was to “Insert” a “Bookmark” to indicate the start of a file. (Search for Guide Items in this site.)
In MS Word 2003, I click “Insert” from the Menu, and a Drop-Down Menu appears, from which I can choose [Bookmark].
In MS Word 2010, when I click “Insert” from the Menu, I am presented with a “Ribbon” of pretty pictures, and must figure out which one represents “Bookmark”.
Yes… the pretty pictures are labeled, and, Yes… I can figure it out… but look at the difference in efficiency!
