I have beein using MS Office for over a year. And yes, Xkalibur, I completely agree that it is irritating to re-save all the documents I created using Document Word 97-2003 version (opted in "save as...") Otherwise there is no possibily for my less updated fellow-students to open my Word documents
More to add to your page number problems, I'm short on brain probably, but I failed trying to find where I can chose "omit the number on the fisrt page"...

I know PowerPoint a little, enough to make a childish presentation
