I received and installed the newest version of Office yesterday. First impressions of this version of Word compared to Word 2008 are favorable. It’s smoother, faster, and has richer functionality. I’m writing a relatively long document at the moment and in all honestly Word is hardly on my mind even though I’m deliberately trying out the new version on a difficult document. So far I’m pleased and am happy I upgraded. Well done Microsoft.
An update to Scrivener is due in early November. I’ll be getting that one too. It’s a real writers tool.
