I would never refuse to use a tool that my employer/client has chosen. That, to me, is extremely unprofessional. If I were a manager and heard that kind of refusal from one of my staff, I would give the option of using the tool or being escorted out the door. The correct answer to being told to use a tool you don't like is "Yes, Boss." Feel free to make your case for changing the tool but ultimately, the decision is not yours.

Best Regards,

Mike

I know thatâs flip and probably unrealistic, but I think itâs also true.

Unless youâre creating one-off, short documents that arenât part of a larger documentation set, Word is probably the wrong tool.
