I remember using WP many years ago, and I liked it. I moved to MS Word
because that was the corporate standard and hated it. Corruptions of
documents happened on a daily basis, and I kept a backup copy of normal.dot
because it was corrupted on a regular basis. These days I use LibreOffice
Writer and I'm happy with it. Just to be clear, I'm not trying to sell you
on LO Writer!
