Amazon.com Review

Microsoft Office XP introduces a host of new features designed to complement all your favorite Office applications. The bulk of these changes are found in Word 2002, the latest version of Microsoft's ubiquitous word processing program. New features like task panes, smart tags, and integrated e-mail are designed to increase both personal and professional productivity, creativity, and efficiency.

Task panes are dynamic windows that pop up in response to specific actions you're performing within a document, such as paragraph formatting or using mail merge options. Similarly, smart tags are icons that appear when you perform a particular task--simply hover your mouse over them and a drop-down menu of options will appear.

Smart tags really come into play in Word 2002, greatly expanding your options. For example, you can now place your mouse over a contact name in a letter and the menu allows you to send that person an e-mail, open their entry in your contact book in Outlook, refer to outstanding schedule commitments, and so on.

Other exciting innovations include the ability to select multiple, unconnected chunks of text (so you can cut and paste two unconnected paragraphs in one go), and the Reveal Formatting task pane, which lets you see all the formats and styles on a given selection. Use the Drawing Canvas to position pictures within a document, check out the Diagram Gallery to add business diagrams, or insert professional clip art from the Clip Organizer.

While there is only so much you would want to change in a word processing package, which is designed for simply and quickly writing documents, Microsoft has managed to improve upon an already well-executed application. --John Rennie ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Word 2002 - if you upgrade to it say goodbye to macros
Microsoft Word is a very good word processor, but if you use to work with macros, I strongly advise against upgrade to Word 2002. This version of the most famous word processor seems to be a step back instead forward. At least my experience with it says so.

In older versions of Word you are able to record macros by performing a sequence of actions. In Word 2002 you can do the same, but with one important difference: macro does not remember font attributes like underline, italic, bold, style, font etc. If you're a PC guru you may probably be able to repair such incomplete macro by entering Visual Basic Editor, but if you aren't, you'll probably be helpless.

Word 2002 has also some other bad characteristics. One of them is the size of its files. A 34 Mb Word 97 file fattened to enormous 49Mb in Word 2002 and a 55 Kb file to 70 Kb.
Another is a fact that almost all of the Spelling&Grammar and Auto Text options are turned on by default. If you're not an English or an American, you need to do a lot of clicking before you can begin to work with Word normally. And poor you if you don't know what to turn off to make auto corrections and other disturbing features disappear. Try to imagine what happens if you write in Slovenian language with the English spell checker turned on! Microsoft should bear in mind that only (small) part of the world is English speaking and writing.

There are also some troubles with cut and paste (Clipboard memory seems to be unreliable).

PS
I gave Word 2002 4 stars for its basic word processing features, but only 1 star for its macros and reliability, and again only 1 star for its price. Together it's 2 stars.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor
i think this product was very poor, it is well over priced, and sould come as standad on new computers

1-0 out of 5 stars Use a typewriter instead
If you are familiar with Word, this is just more of the same bugginess and I don't know why you're still looking at using this program. If you have never used Word before, see if you can try it somewhere before buying it. It's fine for letter writing, but can not be used to create documents that require numbers, bullets, or frequent changes in fonts and formatting. Macros you record to use custom keyboard shortcuts to invoke format changes don't work reliably either, so you are constantly struggling with the broken formatting features to make simple format changes. These formatting features simply do not work. The software pre-thinks everything you are trying to do and decides for you what your document will look like; where the bullets will go, what they will look like, how they will be indented, and sometimes it decides you can't use them at all. It does the same with numbering. You will want to tear your hair out. I am simply stunned that Microsoft has the nerve to charge money for this software. It is awful.

2-0 out of 5 stars Buggy to the extent of being unusable
I've been using Microsoft Word since 1985. I don't even remember the version(s) of DOS Word I used. For the most part, I found it worked in many areas better than anything else. It wasn't better than WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS, but then again, neither was most any software ever written. But Word XP/2002 is trash and I refuse to use it anymore. As I have been a Microsoft defender for years, that should tell you something.

First, the outline numbering feature doesn't work. It hasn't worked since Word 97. If you want something in the form of I.A.1.a, etc., you better be prepared to do it by hand because while the outline styles will format correctly, the numbering will be off. You will have an a)1 and a)2, followed by a b)3 and b)4, as the number won't reset. I have been on the phone with Microsoft tech support at least 5 times over this one issue and none of the techs know 1/10th the Word I know. That in itself is frustrating, but the most frustrating part is 30 minutes into the conversation, they will say something like "well, you have to click on feature ____ under the _____ window." Of course, I had already done that and it didn't work, hence the call in the first place. And, yes, I've reinstalled, and the system is state of the art (and then some).

Now, Word likes to lock up on occassion. Not a real lockup like Windows locking up, but you can't use the keyboard or type in Word. For some reason, when I do a cut and paste or a c&p special, the document will lock up. If I wait, I can then type a letter or a few letters, then it will lock up again. I refuse to call MS tech support, and have posted this on a web site, but apparantly can't explain it well enough. The best way to describe it is the mouse pointer disappears, and no keyboard function works. I can move to a different application, and sometimes when returning to Word, it will start to work, but only for a few characters. I charge by the hour, but I can't bill clients for buggy software and time spent adapting to it. Until I find my copy of WordPerfect I had, I downloaded Open Office to do documents in.

When it does work, the windows that appears sometimes on cut and paste functions is terribly annoying. And I don't care to speak to the rest of the features in this program (read my review of Word 2000 if you want to see that) since I can't get even the basic features to work right. I say stay the heck away from this or other MS products until they write stuff worth a darn.

I don't know what's worse: the fact that MS released a new product as buggy as this or that they haven't fixed known bugs from a product released 2 cycles ago.

2-0 out of 5 stars More is worse
Every time Microsoft dinks with Word and creates a new version, their geniuses take out or modify features users have come to depend on. Thus Word becomes less user friendly and more cantankerous.

After trying Word 2002, our office is switching to FrameMaker 7.0. The learning curve was much gentler than we expected, and the power to create simple documents and complicated tech manuals that number correctly is beyond price. The new version of Word finally forced us to change and we'll never look back. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Beware Endnote 8
I just wanted to put here a warning that the new version of Endnote (8.0) is out (7/04) and it is very buggy, - so if you are going to buy it, get version 7.0 if at all possible!

1-0 out of 5 stars Word 2003 Users BEWARE
There are big *UNRESOLVED* compatibility issues with Word 2003. The "Cite While You Write" feature doesn't work, which is a big deal. Don't be fooled by the endnote.com Web site--their seemingly easy fix doesn't work.

Don't believe me? Do a quick Internet search on Endnote 7 and Word 2003 compatibility. Many have had problems.

4-0 out of 5 stars Take it for a test drive - I did and glad of it!
HOW USED: Typical deliverables for my small science consulting company are reports to clients and State and Federal regulators. These reports typically cite a wide variety of information sources, including personal telephone communications, data records, journal articles, government guidance documents, letters, and memorandum. As a consequence, any software program that allows management and insertion of citations into MS WORD 2003 reports (XP Pro) in our format shaves time off report preparation and lowers costs to our clients.

REVIEW: After several hours developing customized input and output formats, I can report that EndNote does a fabulous job. It workied seamlessly with MS WORD 2003 to insert citations and a bibliography into several reports. Reference selection for insertion is simple and intuitive using the EndNote tool bar in MS WORD.

TESTING: I evaluated EndNote before purchased the software. I went to the EndNote web site [http://www.endnote.com/] and downloaded the FREE DEMO version of EndNote. I spent a few hours over the course of a week playing with the program. Although not intuitively obvious in operation, I found the EndNote Demo simpler to operate and, after formating input and outputs, a pleasure to use in comparison to like-featured products of competitors. The EndNote Demo is not supposed to be any different than the real thing - except that you only get to use it for a 30 day trial period. Even so, when problems arose, I E-mailed tech support on two separate occasions while working with the Demo for advice on how to handle my business formating needs. To their credit, I got fast and very useful answers to my questions (kudos). In contrast, I had previously spent several fruitless days toying with one of EndNotes competitor programs (Biblioscape [http://www.biblioscape.com/biblioscape.htm]),which you can also download for a free test drive. I had many more problems running the Biblioscape program. It crashed 8 times in one hour. I never was able to format either input or output before running out of uses (the Biblioscape test drive allows you to use the program 30 times before it requires purchase or exit). Because the program crashed so often, that I never was able to really get into the meat of this less-expensive program, which others seemed to rate highly. All is well though, EndNote works very well indeed.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buggy Buggy Buggy!!!
Their older versions worked perfect. But their new versions are so buggy since Endnote 6.0, e.g. memory leaks, word slowdown and freeze. Now, when I try 7.0, it always pops up an error saying "Endnote is waiting for user information, please go back to Endnote program"? There is no information on their tech support page as well. I really doubt what those guys are doing for such an expensive software.

4-0 out of 5 stars A must for the student
(WinXP user using MS OfficeXP):
Endnote has saved me countless hours of entering and arranging bibliographic entries, making this part of term paper, thesis, and even publication writing almost trivial. Not only can you instantly search and cite publications while writing, specifying almost any possible citation and reference style, but you can also download all your reference information, including abstracts over the internet. I may spend a half an hour total collecting, citing, and putting in professional bibliographic format, say, 20 citations for a term paper. The other students who don't use this program may waste half a day doing this. If you are a graduate student (or academic professional), this program is worth its weight in gold. And even though the small journal I am submitting to is not in Endnote's thousands of predefined output styles, I was able to easily customize my own output style for this journal.

That being said, I have one major caveat about version 7: I upgraded to 7.0 from version 5 because I thought it would offer me a similar revolution for organizing figures and tables that it did for bibliographies--something I have to toil over in my thesis. The aspects that make EndNote great for references, however, are not developed for figres and tables. (1)Endnote offers almost endless citation and output styles for references;(2) edit your citations in Endnote, and when you update your references in your paper, it edits itself. None of these happen with figures.
(1)You cannot specify styles for figues--the only choice you have is caption on top or bottom, and figures at end of paragraph or end of paper. Does your journal require you to refer to figure abbreviated as Fig.? then you're out of luck. What if your journal wants a list of figure captions separate from the figures, with no captions on the figure? You are also out of luck.
(2)What if you need to edit your figure after using it in the paper? Should be easy, right, just edit it in endnote and refresh the figures on you paper, just like with references? No. You have to find every reference to that figure in your paper, delete it, and then then refer to the new edited figure. Maybe not a problem for a small paper, but for a thesis, where there are references to a figure thoughout the paper, this is a royal pain in the behind.
I have talked to tech support at Endnote (very nice and helpful people, by the way), and they have confirmed that there is no way around these problems. They refunded me for my upgrade to Endnote 7, since my already purchased version 5 did what I needed.
The thing is, MS Word has its own simplified reference manager for figures using field codes (look it up in help). Endnote 7 just uses uses this already built-in function of Word, without adding any benefits. In fact, at least in Word, you can edit your figures, and if you get really creative with field codes, you can circumvent some of the style problems I mentioned above.

So, by all means, get EndNote to manage your references. Don't use it yet for your figures and tables, until a later version when EndNote has made it more flexible and user friendly. Instead, learn how to use field codes in Word, and email EndNote's suggestions box to make these necessary changes. The people working there are nice and capable of making these changes. ...

Microsoft Office is an incredibly popular productivity suite,but many home users have a far greater need for a word processor thanthey do for a spreadsheet program or presentation software. It's forthat reason that Microsoft has released this version of Word 98, aspecial edition for iMac and iBook owners.

After the simplest installation procedure imaginable--just drag thefolder from the CD-ROM--all of Word 98's convenience is at yourfingertips. Layout tools (page borders, font effects, and automaticformatting) and proofing tools (automatic correction of typos, spell andgrammar check, and a contextual thesaurus) are matched with wizards thatguide you through typical document creation as well as a helpful OfficeAssistant that you can query in plain English. Far from overwhelming,the result is an extremely flexible word processor that strives to makeit as easy as possible for you to make your work look good.

Features available only in this edition are the greeting card templatesdesigned by PaperStudio.com and the extended clip art library of 5,000images that range from highly iconographic black-and-white pieces todynamic colored art. The clip art library is nicely consistent inquality and styles, making it easy to mix and match items.

By culling Word from Office 98, repackaging it with some goodies, andoffering it at a reasonable price, Microsoft has made a professionaltool that's home user friendly. --Jack Gardiner ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good...as far as mac software is concerned
This is one of the best word prosessors for the mac, much less the iMac and iBook. Is had variouse features, such as spelling/grammar check and a hyphenation program, as well as a wizard to make tables. Although, word 2000 is out for the PC(which is much better)....

5-0 out of 5 stars Word 98 Special Edition will run on most any Mac
Suppliers are required to state that Word 98 Special Edition for the iMac and iBook will run only on these machines. This is not true! The Special Edition will run on almost any Mac that has sufficient disk space and memory. I was told this by a Microsoft tecnical assistance person! I then bought it, and it's now running on my Power Mac 7500 under OS 8.6. However, you may find that Microsoft will not give you technical assistance if you tell them that you are not running it on an iMac or iBook. Word 98 is an excellent word processor with many features...and it's easy to use. It is a significant step up from Word 6.1 that I had been using. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

In a business that's all about buzz, the latest version of Final Draft should enjoy plenty of the good kind. Final Draft 6.0 has kept what works, and added new features that guarantee this scriptwriting software will retain its spot in the limelight. It still handles the myriad technical details of scriptwriting automatically--character names are indented properly, scene headings are capitalized, and the default font is the industry standard 12-point Courier, a holdover from typewriter days. The entertainment industry is surprisingly stuffy when it comes to screenplay formatting and, when properly used, Final Draft can at least ensure your script will look great.

The latest version of Final Draft is designed for Windows XP and carbonized for Mac OS X, but it worked fine on the Windows 98 system we tested it on. A new touch freelancers will appreciate is the ability to save in Adobe PDF format, so scripts can be sent to folks who don't own this software. New cosmetics include a more colorful toolbar, darker font that matches Mac and Windows systems and looks better in print, and bigger windows for the ScriptNotes feature. System enhancements include a smart drag and drop, which automatically adds formatting elements when you move bits of your script. Our favorite new addition is Ask the Expert, a blackboard that writers can visit to refresh themselves on basics like characterization and story arc. It's like a screenwriting class without the has-been teacher and the "I'm better than Spielberg" classmates.

A couple of annoyances: you must "authorize" your system to use Final Draft 6.0 without the CD-ROM. Fortunately there are two authorizations, so you can, for example, use the program on both a desktop and laptop. Also, the much-touted script templates are nearly impossible to find (go to "File," click "New"--we just saved you 15 minutes), and they are not copies of actual scripts but two- to three-page parodies of TV shows, done in what we assume is the specific format for the show. They're worth reading just for laughs, but since the X-Files template still had Mulder listed as a character, we don't think they're 100 percent up to date. --Anne Erickson ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Time-Saver
Writing a screenplay can be a very daunting task, especially for someone who is not familiar with the format. Before purchasing Final Draft, my previous screenplays were written in your basic, custom-formated Microsoft Word document.

Final Draft 6 does it all the formating for you. A function called "SmartType" finishes off character names for you, so you don't have to keep typing in names. This is wonderful when you have two or three characters talking to each other in a string, so you can quickly type the conversation, as if it were going on in front of you.

When I transferred my previous screenplays into Final Draft, it took about an hour or so to reformat a 106-page document correctly. Final Draft was able to interperate about 80% of the formatting correctly, getting confused on mostly transitions and telling the difference between some scene headings and actions. Although, it knew exactly what was dialogue just by where it was placed in the word document, which I thought was remarkable.

Some of the templates for actual T.V. shows are a little silly, but they serve their purpose: giving you the raw format for a certain show, which can vary greatly depending on the series. If you have your own show you've created, you can save a blank document with the initial beginings of the script as a template and be able to have a fresh document ready for your next episode.

Final Draft is a great purchase for the novice screen writer learning the format, and a wonderful time-saver for the somewhat-established to established veteran.

2-0 out of 5 stars Final Draft 6 Needs Revision
Even though it remains the Hollywood standard, Final Draft 6 leaves a lot to be desired. For lack of a decent alternative, I've used this application for the better part of a decade, and it remains clumsy to use and well behind the curve of technology.

The big issue: Onscreen text looks atrocious. After a year on the market, Final Draft 6 still doesn't use Mac OS X's technology to render beautiful anti-aliased text. Third-party fixes, like Silk, work only halfway to solve Final Draft's shortcomings. But should an application that costs $ need fixing at all? Unacceptable.

And beware of WYSIWYDG, or "What You See Is What You Don't Get." You might find the perfect font in the Font Menu, but good luck applying it to your screenplay. Worse, there are occasional text hiccups, where the text-rendering is garbled and screen redrawing is skewed.

'Authorization' remains a nuisance, too. (Bet you didn't remember to 'deauthorize''before a system reinstall or upgrade.) I know of no other software that requires such an unwieldy process just to stay running smoothly.

Final Draft 6 is still better than a typewriter or a standard word processor for writing scripts, but not by much. Considering the steep price, maybe it's time to revisit the competition.

1-0 out of 5 stars Quirky program made useless by copy protection
Buyer beware: Final Draft incorporates an archaic copy protection scheme that will drive you nuts. Every other category of computer software did away with this kind of user-unfriendly copy protection scheme in the mid-80s, but the screenwriting software vendors persist. You're probably better off using Microsoft Word (which is far more robust) and using a simple formatting utility when you're project is finished. If you have any hard drive crashes or hardware upgrades and you forget to de-install Final Draft you will lose your install keys. Tech support is scarce and the online help system is only good for the most basic information. While it should make your life simpler this product will make your life hell. Avoid it like the plague.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best investment I've made for writing.
I purchased Final Draft a couple of years ago, and it was the best investment for writing I've made yet. I had loads of story ideas in my head, but had no idea how to write a screenplay or teleplay, and didn't have the patience to read a book about it.

I am a VERY basic computer user and feared formatting software would be nothing short of a nightmare, but within a month I formatted three one-hour teleplays, started on a screenplay, and knew how to navigate the software fairly well. The Smart-type feature is a lifesaver, and the various view, outline, and report features are incredibly helpful and save loads of time.

There are a few features that were more complicated to learn, and as an absolute novice I had some questions that I couldn't find answers for in the program, but overall - I'm thrilled with it and use it everyday.

I'd recommend this software to anyone, rank amateur or paid professional ,who's looking for a user-friendly, helpful, and reliable formatting system.

5-0 out of 5 stars There's a reason the whole world uses it -- it's the best
Final Draft is simply the best there is. Screenwriter is buggy [I borrowed an install from a friend], Scriptware is a joke [based on the demo I tried] and Sophocles doesn't even run on my Mac. If you follow the directions it does exactly what it says it's going to do. It's a professional-grade tool [even though I'm not a professional-grade writer - YET], it's got 24/7 help [that I haven't even come close to needing] and everyone I know uses it [and I do work in the industry]. As far as I can tell the people who have problems with it aren't using it right or they have crappy computers.

Don't mess around with other programs. This one is the one to use. ... Read more
