As agreed, it's in PowerPoint, which everyone has & knows how to use.

Everyone does NOT have it, and many who have it know nothing about it.

Again you brazenly fabricate what you don't know.

I do know that there are lots of people who don't have Microsoft Office.

And of those who have it, most of them use Word and Excel.

PowerPoint is often used as a stand-in DTP app for making things like
in-house brochures, certificates, etc. because it's easier to use than
Word's awful "layout" capabilities.

I know that is sometimes done...

...and certainly Word IS awful at it...

...but most people-the vast majority-still don't use PowerPoint even if
they do have Office installed.

'Sof****ch also looked more deeply at how people were using each
application by dividing users into four categories; heavy users, light
editors, viewers (i.e. people who looked at documents but did nothing
else) and inactive users who didn't use the program at all.

Here the results were even more stark, with 29 percent of users either
never using Excel/Word or only using it to view documents; for
PowerPoint the percentage was an astonishing 70 percent. For Word, a
further 62 percent were classed as light users, while another 53
percent of Excel users fell into this category.

As to PowerPoint, it was easier in the end to say who was using it than
who wasn't - only about one in twenty could described as heavy users
even when applying a low threshold of what defined this type of usage.'


It does have to be remembered that PowerPoint is designed to make
presentations (as well as used for in-house DTP), so in reality is a
niche market. Few people want or need to do presentations, but far more
will want to type up a letter or whatever in Word.

Excel, although designed as a spreadsheet for manipulating numbers, is
also used by a lot of people as a simple database, especially for doing
mail merges and labels via Word.

Every time I update MS Office, it insists on putting back OneNote and
Outlook, which I then have to delete because I don't use them and don't
want them. Those two apps probably have even lower usage numbers on the
