Ain't Broke, But Tried to Fix it Anyway

A regretful buyer since version ten, and twenty-one is no better, worse actually, partly because there's no reward for loyalty figuring out how the thing works from one version to the next--that is, needless reinvention of the wheel. So, rather than upgrade thinking you'll be a pro at it already, may as well migrate to a different brand. Corel is so muddy.
