Comments about oreilly Word 2016 For Dummies:

I am a Wordperfect user by preference, and have hated my forced interactions with Word. I have not fully converted, but this book has helped a lot. My bugbear is formatting in Word, and changing the formatting features created by others which I particularly dislike. I have not got there yet, but I am still working on it!
