The master document feature seemed to work fine several
versions ago, but apparently was somewhat broken with the update to
the 3.x series. I, too, am told it is to be fixed quite soon.

By the way, has Word's master document feature *ever* worked
properly--and is anyone at Microsoft addressing its historic problems?

If so, once they get that fixed, could someone ask them to please fix
autonumbering, too?
