I'm no Bill Gates fan but he WAS smart enough to make Word yell at us for incorrect spelling and bad grammar. However, Mr. Gates was not smart enough to make that Paperclip (as annoying as he is) a little more bossy about format.
You know - for those moments when someone:
- use spaces instead of tabs
- use tabs then add a space so the number will scootch over
- use ENTER repeatedly instead of using page break
Paperclip just watches all of this, and lets it happen.
I just inherited a copy of the company's MODEL X which I need to submit to a customer, proving we have a MODEL X.
The MODEL X was prepared in Word and eventually turned into a pocket size MODEL X.
The initial layer outer of MODEL X did not choose to use the formatting guides in Word, they used a weird-assed margin setting, a bunch of spaces, gobs of unnecessary returns and flip flopped between TWO FONTS throughout the document (and I'm not just being anal about the fonts, it's truly UGLY and reeks unprofessional).
Where were you when this was all happening? You SAW what was going on. Your googly cartoon eyes ignored the grossness of a poorly laid out document.
And yet, here you sit and mockingly blink your dastardly stare at me while I painstakingly go line by line thru this hideous document.
YOU SUCK!! And I hope you die a slow, rusty, bent death.
