-How can I stop word from that INFERNALLY ANNOYING hiding menus? I can't find the "stop fucking hiding menu items" option.
-How can I say "I want my workspace to be 2"x5", and I want you to print it 8 times on an 8 1/2 x 11 page?
Sorry for the stupid questions, but I can't find either of these.

Go to tools>customize>always show full menu.
As dumb as that.
Customize? Am I tricking out my 89 Civic or something? What a dumb place to put it. Somehow I would logically have expected it in Options.
Thanks for the help

Yea, they put the important stuff in the places least expected.
And for the second question, I suggest you set the pagesize to 2" * 5" using Fiel>Page setup, then create a macro to print it 8 times on 8.5' * 11' (apart from setting the scale options).
It maybe wrong, coz I havent worked on word macros for a very long time.
Actually Tools/Customize is where customizing menus has always been.

"Actually Tools/Customize is where customizing menus has always been."
Right. But that's not the place where a user might start to look for disabling those smart menus. The number of users whom I've helped out with this must be in 3 figures.
Great, another whinebag with a cause. If you're going to use a product with thousands of features, best you can do is carefully look through the settings -- you know, there are bound to be lots of them.
You "don't need" all the fancy stuff? Use Wordpad.

Hey shitbag -> Keep your useless opinion to yourself.

They've realised that *everyone* hates the "smart menus", so while it's still supported in Office 12 it's turned off by default. YAY!
Yea, that's a rule I learnt - give the users the same interface, version after version. If they want to change it, provide an option.
Dont do the opposite - change the interface and tell them how to change it back.
Don't worry - in Office 12 you get the worst of both worlds. We've changed it and you CAN'T change it back. :)

Any chance that the SharePoint discussion groups will start to look and feel a bit more like Outlook and a bit less like some ascii bulletin board software from the seventies?

They have the ultimate answer, which is that because Sharepoint is fully configurable, it's really your fault if it looks like crap.
Actually either I'm not doing it right or discussions are broken in the build I'm running. I'll look into it and let you know.
