I was typing in Microsoft Word and I started a bulleted list with an item like this:
- Topic1. A sentence about Topic1. And another one.
Then I hit the Enter key.
What do you think happened?
Not only did I get another bulleted list item, Word set the font to bold!
So I typed this:
And as soon as I typed the period, Word turned bold off!! Not only did it figure out that I’m creating a bulleted list, it figured out that I’m starting each bullet with bold font, followed by a period, followed by more text in regular font, and it takes care of everything for me automatically! That’s pretty sophisticated.
Compare that to Lotus Notes, which can’t even figure out when I hit Enter twice that I want to turn the bullets off!
We use Notes at work and I swear to God, if I type a bulleted list and hit Enter twice, Notes gives me this:
- Item 1
- Item 2
- Item 3
I actually have to turn bulleting off manually! Does anyone really want to create a bulleted list with multiple empty items?
I’ve never seen another text editor do something this stupid . . .
