Hi :)
Where do you post to?  I've never known anyone else say that MS Office
changed direction on anything in order to accommodate a user's
suggestion so this is a bit of a first.  Usually users are just told
they can't be having the problem or get told to upgrade.

MS don't claim to listen to individual users so on the odd occasion
they do seem to have listened they get applauded for it.  They
couldn't hope to be as responsive as LO.  LO is held to a much higher
standard in terms of responsiveness.
Regards from
Tom :)

Yes and no,

Yes everything changes from version to version in Microsoft Office. As I mentioned in another 
message the version I have is from 2000.

No in that you can submit feedback and changes to MS Office, and in fact from rev 1 (I was an 
Office User from the very beginning) to the last version I used (2000) I did that a lot and in 
fact many of the suggestions did find their way into the later versions.

Given my own experience with OpenOffice and now Libre Office it's no easier to suggest changes 
here than it was for Microsoft Office. They may get listened to a bit more in LO, no guarantee

Hi :)
MS Office 2013 is different from 2010 is different from 2007 is
radically different from 2003.  Formats change and sometimes cause
problems.  The layout of the ribbon-bar changes.  The macro language
changes quite a lot.  What might have happened in one version
sometimes vanishes from the next but may reappear in another.

There is no-where that users can go to suggest changes or reversions.
