Are any of you or your clients who moved to Microsoft Office 2007 still learning where the commands you used to use most frequently in Office 2003 are in the new Office 2007 interface? If so, we have new interactive command reference guides available that provide you with an interactive display of where to find them. It will provide you with the Office 2003 view, then when you click the feature you are looking for, it will show you where to find it in Office 2007.
Here's an example from the Word 2007 interactive command reference guide:

The guides are cute, but it is not going to help frustrated users since they want to use the program, not take a class. The substitution of one counter-intuitive menu for a counter-intuitive menu only slows the adoption of the product. The only real hope is that a: OEM are going to ship only 2007, and eventually I.T. departments are going to push it out since they really don't care what the users like or don't like.
Is there no Powerpoint command reference? Spoke to a designer who was extremely frustrated at finding commands in PP2007.
@ Manuel - Yes, there is and I missed it in my original post. I have added it now. Thanks for reminding me.
