But on balance it's a good solution.
LibreOffice is also fairly usable but doesn't spend as much time on usability as it should. There are a mess of toolbars and buttons on the top, the sides and the bottom. And they appear and disappear depending on context, e.g. click on text in a bullet point and suddenly a bullet toolbar appears at the bottom. It makes the experience very disconcerting and it's very wasteful of space too. Compared to MS Office, all those toolbars mean less space for the actual document. It's philosophy seems to be small iterative changes to the existing experience rather than wondering if the existing experience is fit for purpose in the first place.
