I'm a newly graduated CS student and I've started a cool job last month. I'm an enthusiast user of typesetting languages and I find going back to MSOffice totally frustrating.
I know that Word has a decent outline view, but with PowerPoint it's just a huge annoyance, because text and graphic placement aren't handled automatically by the software. Since I'm going to write a good deal of documentation I'd like it to be done painlessly and effectively.
Do you have any tip on how to achieve that? In particular:
- How can I (re)educate myself to use MSOffice effectively?
- Do you know if there are any (possibly free) software that can help with that? Like a better interface or a typesetting language?
