10 Microsoft Word Nightmares you will definitely Experience as a Student
Documentation holds pivotal importance for the science students. From the report writing for project works, to the submission of the assignments, it is mandatory for students to be documentation maestro in order to excel. And the most vibrant software to accomplish documentation is indeed, Microsoft’s very own “MS Word”.
Where MS Word is providing its users with a very friendly interface to work on for nearly a decade, it is also known to have troubled its users frequently with some of its most annoying features and the uncalled auto formatting. For once at least in your college or university years, you must have been driven crazy due to the mischievous behavior of MS Word. Enlisted below are some of the exasperates you may have encountered while using MS Word.

The Confusion between British and American English is inevitable when using MS Word. You cannot keep a track of your English format used in the document since MS Word is itself confused with the format.
8. Print job messed up
Printing an MS Word document has always been a curse. MS Word sets its documents to be “Letter” format contrary to the official A4 size of the printing paper. Thereby it adjusts the dimensions accordingly and if God Forbid, you happen to forget selecting A4 before the print, you may end messing the print output. Even if you select the A4 option right before the print, you may have to start over with the misery of formatting again.
9. The more anomalous, the more chances to unravel the mysteries
MS Word seems to follow the policy of keeping the things exciting by changing the entire looks of its interface and hiding the features in unidentifiable places. It takes quite a while for the users to get well accustomed to the features and tabs in order to do their desired sets of functions but Microsoft will bring up a so called more friendly interface after every 3 to 4 years, which will definitely add up to your misery.

Whether you call it a coincidence or just your bad luck, if you are submerged in producing a piece of document of high standing, MS Word is always going to pull you out of it by crashing due to some unexplainable reasons.
You may agree or disagree, but there has always come a point where MS Word has made you pay for your mistakes in life by grueling you with its innumerable annoying features.
