I have no problem with some changes in the interface where they are 
For instance: The way that page styles are applied is very 
counter-intuitive. We get dozens of posts in the forums about how to 
make a document with a heading on all pages except the first, and also 
from people who select a page style for a page somewhere in the middle 
of a document and then find that it has been applied to the entire 
document. Page styles are really powerful and easy to use once you get 
the hang of the concept and of how they are implemented and applied, but 
until you get the hang of it, they can - and often do - drive you up the 
wall. So, a better Insert - manual break dialog box would be a big help 
- probably more text in it, like "Select the page style for the next 
page" instead of just "Style", would already help.
