"Werner F. Bruhin":
Now a productive use of time would have been to tell us what the one
feature you would like to have which existed in Word 2.0 in 1991 and
doesn't exist in LO.
Paragraphs longer than 65k characters?
(Working) multiple indexes?
I can see why Microsoft might not want to devote resources to setting a
reasonable limit on paragraph size, but since all the formatting
information sits in the pilcrow at the end of each paragraph, I would
not be shocked if suddenly the font changes to 72-point Arial Black Bold
somewhere in the middle of the mega-graph. If this happens, you probably
wouldn't be able to re-apply the Normal style either.
Urmas presumably would angrily phone Microsoft to demand an answer: the
tech support person (after rolling her eyes and stifling a chuckle)
would calmly suggest "Have you tried putting in a hard return somewhere
before the font changes?"
Remember what your English teacher taught you (I suspect this is true in
most languages, too; even "custom languages"): Paragraphs are groups of
sentences that "deals with one point or gives the words of one speaker."
