When I first encountered Microsoft Word, my department had recently purchased the "brand new" Mac computers. Word was foreign to us, but we had to learn— and learn quickly. I took my little Mac home and went through the complete User's Manual over the weekend. I became the department expert; and with each successive update, I have maintained my skill level.
In the course of working in the publications department of a major software company, I have utilized every aspect of high-end publishing, including templates, master documents, table of contents and indexing. All of our documents were converted to Adobe PDF files with functioning contents, indexes and links.
Eventually, I became part of the departmental support group dealing with Word and Adobe problems, and was often requested to help with issues because of my patient and non-judgmental demeanor.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have used desktop publishing software to create corporate newsletters for a number of years beginning with the first version of Aldus Pagemaker for the PC. Aldus was purchased by Adobe and Pagemaker became part of the Adobe InDesign.
I now use Publisher, part of Microsoft Office, to create marketing collateral for my current employer.
I have used page layout software since Aldus first introduced Pagemaker for the PC.
Initially, for my previous employer, I was editor and designer of a 10-page newsletter.
Currently, I use Microsoft Published to design collateral material to support the marketing efforts at my company.
I have used and become proficient with every version of Windows, beginning with 3.0, up to and including 7.0.
For most of those years, I worked for a software development company, which required more than a passing knowledge of how the operating system functioned.
In my current job, I am using Windows 7.0, so far my favorite version...I use the Snip Tool daily.
