I suppose having options is generally a good thing, but I'd much rather
create and change formatting in one master document than have to change
and synchronize 20 or 30 subdocuments to make sure they all work
together. Is it better to encourage people to learn better methods of
working or to keep giving them the option of using older, less
But who is to say *your* method is better? I can definitely see situations
where someone would *want* the formatting from the subdocument to be
applied, and vice versa.
But, by having so many options, people retain the option of never
learning, never growing, into more proficient document creators. Having
too many options keeps it easy to stagnate and continue to work harder.
In many cases this is true, but if you take that too far... why provide the
option to have 3rd party fonts?
The bottom line is, just because *you* would do something a certain way
doesn't mean everyone else will want to do it your way.
