Where Word Mac completely falls apart is in dealing with one document at a time. When working with one document and then opening another, most of the time (but, infuriatingly, not even reliably all of the time) the new document opens BEHIND the current document. In the Mac OS X environment, where only minimized documents show up on the Dock, this makes switching documents a juggling act. In order to look at new document B, which has opened behind existing document A, the user must minimize document A. To switch back to document A, the user cannot simply restore document A because -- remember -- then document A would open BEHIND document B; the user must minimize document B before restoring document A. The juggling act is simple enough: two steps, but understand that those two steps must be taken EVERY TIME the user wishes to switch documents.
And woe to the user who has documents C and D open, but on the back burner for the nonce.
This quirk is not only immensely inconvenient, costing me seconds every time I work with multiple documents, but it has cost me DAYS of work in lost files. I have opened new documents, ensured they were in focus, printed them, ensured the document that printed was the one I intended to print, and then returned from my printer to my Mac to close the document I needed open only to print -- "Save changes?" No need! -- only to see the document I have just printed emerge from BEHIND the document I just closed with no save: the document I have been working all day to produce.
If you own a Mac and want to create Microsoft Word documents, you have two options: adapt your workstyle to only ever dealing with one document at any one time, or do all your word processing on a Windows machine.
Better to get iWorks from Apple or any other word processing program. I thought that it would insure maximum compatibility with Word files created on a PC by myself and others but I was wrong. Microsoft does not want to make it easy for people to defect from the Windows camp and it shows in this malfunctioning software they continue to sell.
