Here are a few questions which the forced use of Microsoft products at
work has inspired:
- Why can't you move a window when the program which owns it is thinking? You can change the focus and use another window with that row of window names on the bottom of the screen. So, why can't you move the busy one?
- How can I reconfigure that editor to understand that I mean backspace
when I type Control-H?
- How do you make a window go to the bottom of the pile of windows?
- How do I make single edge line bold/thicker in a table, in MS Word?
- What is the goto-line command in that editor?
- How do I set a mark, so I can jump back to it later? (equiv of vi's m command)
- What is the keystroke for parantheses matching?
- In the IXP Developer Workbench, when a source file is "maximized" to be edited, why is its "minimize/window/close" button so far from it?
- Sometimes when you say "print to file", it will append .prn to what you type, and sometimes it won't. The dialog window tends to be completely different as well. I thought that was OS-provided... Why all the inconsistancy?
- When I'm attempting to load a file, in a dialog box, sometimes when I click on a file it offers to rename it. This is a load-file dialog, not a general purpose file handler, lose the irrelevent operations.
