Word has a habit of wiping out meticulous formatting when we do something as simple as change which printer we are going to print on. As such it's not the right application when we are typesetting.
What else do you have?
I have a document that has seven tables in it. I've spent the last hour or so trying to make all tables look, for example, identical row and column widths. Trying to resize the columns using the mouse takes too damn long and every time I make a change in one table its formatting goes haywire.
I'm using Word2002.
Would appreciate any help.
