    Yeah! I saw this a few months ago when I was using spellchecker, you can't even escape wokeness in a word processor.

    Unfortunately I can't install that at work. But I did use it for a while at home. Good software

  • Microsoft Office isn't worth updating because there's not many new features each time. I have Office 365 and Word 2017 on my computer, and it works just fine. It doesn't have this.

  • I use Open Office as I can't justify spending money on Microsoft Word, woke or not woke.

    Open Office works basically the same as MS Word, though it has its own little quirks.  For free software, I can work around those.

  • Yes! Here’s what I want everyone on CI to know!  
    My race- White as the driven snow
    Gender- Don’t you mean sex?  Female and proud of it.
    Pronouns- Her Majesty, Your Majesty, Majesty’s, or just call me Sue.
    Appearance- “Short, fat, bald, and ugly.”  Seriously, a family friend got hired when he said that at an interview for foreman of an engineering crew.

    Word 2017 does not. Literally just checked right now.

  • Use the free, and quite capable, Libreoffice for crying out loud! You can even open/save to Microsoft formats. there is NO reason to use Microsoft's crap, especially if they're "woke" as described in the OP.

    Even if you're still using Microsoft operating systems, you don't have to use their office suite. Libreoffice is available for all operating systems.
