Questions related to Microsoft Office
I am sure most people have the same question on their minds. I already see some questions on ResearchGate but couldn't see the proper answer.
The question is: How do you people write papers on Linux? Mainly, what do you use for a citation?
LibreOffice and OpenOffice have the Mendeley plugin, however, both have compatibility issues with Microsoft Office. This creates a big problem with collaborative work. Regardless of the compatibility issues, both software is not easy to use, or at least not for people who have used Microsoft Office for decades.
I tried Google Docs, and it has a few citation plugins (ie. Paperpile) but again there are sometimes compatibility issues with Microsoft Office, plus, Google docs (writer) lacks most of the functions (ie. vertical text on tables).
I am currently using WPS office which is easy to use and fully compatible with Microsoft Office but there is no Mendeley (or other citation) plugin. It has an "Endnote" function, but I have to manually type the citation, which is torture.
So, do you have any suggestions rather than buy an Apple Mac or return to Windows?
Mandatory needs emerging in education and training environments as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic have brought along new technological solutions. While some of them could help to solve the problems, the majority were insufficient. This is due to the fact that the needs are not fully met. Could MS-Office, designed as a videoconferencing tool with Moodle, a learning management system, solve this problem?
In order to analyze daily yield of Solar PV , the master file needs to be split into smaller files. As Excel has limitation of number of rows, it is tough to load or extract the same. Hope there is a good solution or work around is available.
Thank you in advance.
We have created a Venn diagram on MS Word and entered values into the main circles, but we have no way to enter values into the intersections. How do we go about this?
I am familiar with Microsoft Office Suite but didn't have a Microsoft Visio license. Is there any free alternative that can be used to draw flows and diagrams for research papers/articles?
I searched online for Visio alternatives, there are many online services, but they are not user friendly and flexible.
Note: I am using Microsoft Word to write my articles.
We, scholars, are writing a lot. The language of science today is the English, however, for many of us, English is not our mother tongue. Even though we may be fluent in English. I found grammar check programmes/applications useful. Do you have recommendations about such apps? I am using MS Office grammar check (of course) and also I started to use Grammarly. Do you think there are better programmes (apps) or which are you using?
When I used the baranyi and huang models to estimate the experimental enzyme activity data, when the experimental activity values reached a certain level, the models did not estimate the experimental data and failed the calculations. Microsoft Office program was used for calculations. What could be the reason? I would appreciate it if you would share your views and suggestions on this situation.

Do you feel that computer science and information systems programs should also require professors to have professional certifications in addition to the normal publishing requirements for tenure or job acceptance?
The research is to describe the corrections made by the Microsoft Word Text Editor spellcheck .
What are the correction levels addopted? What rules are used in order to make the corrections? What types of errors are not detected or are corrected wrongly? Why these corrections of errors occur? What rule would have caused this error? Could you suggest me some researches on that line?
Actually I know how to pop-up a message box through macro. But, I need help in displaying the message box in an interactive manner, like JQuery pop-ups used in websites. Could any one help me in creating the macro for displaying interactive cell on hover/ on click.
I want to combine two properties which are related to each other in one figure. For that I need 2 vertical axis, one on the right side of the figure, and other on the left side. Did anyone one know how to do that? Both axis would have different numbers and units.
I have a genome sequence however, sequence is in microsoft word file and annotation is present in excel file. How can I convert/merge this information into genbank format.
(sequence is not submitted to any database)
I would like to know the implications on data security during information exchange while using wikis as compared to the Lync server.
For preparing a book, do you recommend the switching from Office to LATEX?
Note: the book's office version is prepared, but it seems that some issues like formulation and referencing is better in LaTex. Is this true?
I am attempting to define exactly why (or if) MS office tools are inappropriate for professional engineering work. I would claim that for any professional work, in science and engineering, there are some basic functions that should be easy to work with in simple direct ways. Revision control, finding differences in data and documents and merging document edits all seem to be central to tracking and managing all documents. Data oriented tools should allow clear separation of process and data, and easy means of iterating and comparing the results over differing data sets. These operations have pretty questionable support in MS tools. Are these core requirements in your view? Are there other differences that are worth discussing?
