Yes, and that's why I learned to use Word 2010 fluently. Of course,
another part of the job is to accurately describe software.
When an updated software product deprecates a useful feature, sometimes
the tech writer is the only one to say so.

This discussion is disillusioning. Sounds like the biggest issue people
have with Word 2010 is actually having to learn how it works, and where
menu items are located. And to me that boils down to being old school
and resisting change and refusing to learn new things. As a technical
communicator, learning new things and new software is part of the job,
is it not??
