So, I use Word successfully. My numbered lists are tied to styles, and I do
not use the ribbon buttons. That said, I also have FrameMaker, and use it
successfully also. And, in a cruel twist of fate, I have InDesign tech
documents, also ... those are the worst. FrameMaker is more efficient but
less usable by my employer, if that makes sense.

TGIF and sending good thoughts for the #USWNT v #CHN today!

Cheers,

Sean
