I agree with Paul Hanson ... add the things you want to the Quick Access
1. Right-click on the QAT
2. Select Customize the QAT
3. In the "Choose commands form" box, select All Commands
4. Select one and click Add>>
5. Arrange as necessary
6. Click OK to save
I have the Paragraph, Font, and Borders menus there along with a bunch of
other things I frequently use. I often add things I'll need for a short
time, then take them off after I'm done.
While it is different than Word 2003, I've gotten used to it and kinda
like it after using it for a couple of months. You can add things that
were a couple of levels deep in 2003 version to the toolbar - a real time
savings. Also can add specific commands - like Make Hidden Text, Edit
Header, Edit Footer, etc.
It is about the only customization you can do, but it's pretty good.
