Important Matters

Why does the new version of Word, with Microsoft Office 2007, default to something that isn’t point 12 Times New Roman?

Sure, there are times when I don’t use Times New Roman, but seriously, the first time I heard of that point 11 Calibri garbage was when we got the new version of Office. It was in a sentence with a question mark and the F word.

    I personally hate the fact that no matter how many times you change the settings, spellcheck always reverts to the US English spelling. I don’t mind that it is the original default- it’s to be expected- but the choice to change it should be respected in the programming!

    It’s funny how it’s so often the little things in life that bother you so much.

    haha I don’t mind that because otherwise I’d have “colour” and “theater” in the same paper, at least it keeps me consistant. I haven’t tried to change it, though, that would drive me batty.
