... document.1
There are of course tricks, like cutting and pasting the cover sheet from past documents and hoping the formatting follows. Even when they work, you can see that they are still inefficient relative to applying a style sheet.

Tip #2: write yourself a template. Depending on whether the Earth is in a Fire sign or a Water sign, you may need to send the template with your document.

Of course, if you use an add-on like this, you won't be able to email your document to a colleague (or yourself at another computer) for editing unless the recipient has also paid out the hundred dollars for the same program.

... reference.4
I used the LaTeX markup for Chapter \ref{more_rambling} here because it saves me the trouble of having to explain the seven-step process it takes to do the same thing in Word. And by the way, if you change the chapter's title, all of the references will break and you'll have to repeat the seven-step process for each reference.

... manual.5
By the way, I rarely find intuitive interfaces to actually be intuitive. They're designed around certain target users whom I'm evidently incapable of thinking like. More generally, the concept of having an intuitive interface assumes that the intuition of everybody on Earth is exactly the same.

... lie.6
For those down with the lingo: every event has to have a method for every object, which is dozens of events times dozens of objects equals hundreds of things that could go wrong with the metaphor--assuming you got good rules about passing the right events to the right objects to begin with. Inheritance doesn't help because most of the time the inherited methods don't quite work as they should, leaving you with objects which almost fit the metaphor.

... done.”7
There is a stand-out exception to this: TEXwas done in 1988, after nobody claimed the author's cash prize for finding bugs, and the code base has not changed since then. The add-on, LATEX, was cemented in 1994. Authors who want to change something in the system must add a package to the base systems.

... conversion.11
Yes, many people try eagerly to write Word-document compatible extensions, with varying success. But the market for such extensions is absolutely miniscule compared to the market around plain text. OpenOffice.org will save DOC files as PDFs, by the way. Even if you are married to Word, you may want to download OpenOffice.org and keep it around exclusively as a PDF converter.
