MS Word has a lot of features that improve the experience of typical users, but annoy power users. I am a slow and deliberate user and would like to disable many of these features, as they make the results of my inputs unpredictable.
Features I would like to disable are:
- Automatic selection of entire words/paragraphs when highlighting
- Automatic addition of spaces/carriage returns when pasting
- Automatic toggle of caps lock when typing wORDS lIKE tHIS (which is necessary when typing units like kV, kJ, mW,...)
Features along this line that I do appreciate and would like to keep are:
- Automatic indention
- Automatic formatting of bulleted/numbered lists
Thanks for your help, and any other recommendations for improving Word's power-user-friendliness (like Shift+F1 or other features to enable/disable) would be greatly appreciated.
