Chris, it sounds to me like the problems you're having stem from looking at
Word from the perspective and experience of a FRAME user. Going from Word
to Frame or Frame to Word is like converting from one religion to another --
going from one system that looks logical and comfortable to one that looks
like a bunch of voodoo and supersition. (Apologies to religious folks out

Saying to yourself or to others "But this is how I did it in Frame, why
can't I do it in Word?" isn't going to help. You need to get some training
or a good book on Word and try that path. You'd think that someone would've
written a "Word for FRAMERS: How to Use Word Without Having an Aneurysm"
book by now.

Most of what you are asking CAN be done in Word, just differently in Frame.
I started out using Word and had lots of stress going over to Frame. It
took time and effort, and some new four-letter words, but I mastered the
transition. I imagine you're going to go through the same going from Frame
to Word.

Check Microsoft's site for links to other sites devoted to Word. Check
Frame related sites. There should be some information and tips there on
going from one to another, or how to perform some of the actions you want to
do. One of the "Dummies" books would be helpful, too.
