comment Automatically resize picture/image in Word?
@SnowCrash I looked around some, and it appears that ctrl-y will also repeat the last action if there's nothing to redo (i.e. you didn't perform an undo immediately before). So, give command-y a try and see if that works on the Mac. I don't have a Mac to try it out on.

comment Is there a way to make the X button exit Spotify?
+1 Because this is a good way to make Spotify not clutter up your task bar when you click the X button. However, it does not actually close the program as you claim. Rather, Spotify keeps running in the background (as the balloon that pops up in the video says). Even though it's no longer in the task bar, it still has a tray icon and still shows up under the "Processes" tab of your task manager. I'm the type of person that doesn't like having extra cruft running on my computer, so I'd like it if it would fully exit the program--not just hide it.

comment Is there a way to make the X button exit Spotify?
+1 for the added insight on why they might want us to always have Spotify open. I didn't know that it uses P2P. In my opinion, that's still not a good enough reason to disable something as standard and basic as the X button though. I'd even prefer if the X button closed the GUI and left a background process running in the tray for the P2P stuff. At least then it gives the impression that it closed and gets it out of the way.

comment Is there a way to make the X button exit Spotify?
@James Yeah, I'm guessing there's no good way to do it other than getting the Spotify developers themselves to change the code. I did submit a complaint to them about it when I posted this question, but who knows if they'll pay any attention to it. Hopefully, there are others complaining about it as well.

comment Merging and re-formatting paragraphs in Microsoft Word 2007
@thkala I wrote up a little macro that takes care of both the line breaks and extra spaces and added it to my answer. Of course, it involves the extra step of copying the macro code into your document...

comment Merging and re-formatting paragraphs in Microsoft Word 2007
Yeah, it seems to me like Word should default to pasting plain text in so that the formatting matches the context of the document (font, font size, color, etc). I think people want to do that more often than having Word attempt (with limited success) to copy the formatting from the source. But, c'est la vie. I use LaTeX for most of my writing nowadays. It's really nice once you know your way around it, but it has a fairly steep learning curve. I've made good use of the LaTeX Stack Exchange site while learning it.
