Sunday, October 16, 2005 Gripes

OK, I've been using for almost two years now full time. I must say that I really like it for the most part. It does what I need to do well and imports Office and WordPerfect documents very nicely. I'm sure I will use it for a long time.

However, there are two main gripes I have against it. The mail merge feature in 2.0RC is far too difficult to figure out. I even followed a detailed tutorial and couldn't get it to work. Why is this so hard? My other gripe is that there is no way to create a basic calendar. I need to create one every month with the meetings, etc., for my church. Why do I have to keep using a WordPerfect 6.1 for DOS macro? Is there no open-source program that can create a calendar? Why is this so hard?
