Microsoft Office 2007 was quite a departure from previous versions, huge changes to the user interface, and the removal of the old menu structure, its all bout the Ribbon now. The same changes happened to Microsoft Outlook in Office 2010. I would guess that it is a lot easier for new users to get work done, and indeed I have found that tasks (like saving as pdf) now take less clicks, but some of the more advanced uses are harder to find, or maybe its just because you used to know where something was and cannot find it now.
I have been confused for a while as to where the outline display of tables with no borders has gone. Yes, I know I am using print layout, but word still used to show the outline of a table with no borders, useful when documents are using tables for layout. My most recent attempts of finding an answer via Google have found the answer.
and so the table gridlines will be shown!
