Create files that are visually appealing with Microsoft.

This is a program that allows you to create files that have a better visual appeal, allowing you to better view them and edit them at a later time. The basic information or editing and saving is located at the top of the screen. You will find information about the files to the left side of the screen. Hover over each component with the mouse to see what you can do with the files that are created.

With the program, the files that are created can be edited a little easier. It's a visual program that has larger buttons and tabs, making it easy to see what you're working on instead of hunting for the information that you need. The progress bars that are featured make it easy to see where you're at in the editing process or any other process that you're doing with a file.

You can easily drag various bits of information to the file that you're working on, making sure that it's saved before going to another file. The program does use many of the Microsoft themes that are available. This almost gives you two programs in one if you don't have the complete Microsoft program installed. Editing tools include saving files, changing the font size and style, changing the color of the font and adding graphs to pages. There are over 400 pieces of code syntax that are available for use, but if you don't know how to use the codes, then you might want to stick with the basic editing system that is available. Suggestions are given for editing solutions if you aren't sure what to choose in the program.
