Sometimes, resolution is sacrificed, but it is still pretty legible and it makes resizing/reformatting information really easy. The only thing that gets tedious is adding new info to preexisting charts. Otherwise, for large bodies of texts, I just use text boxes on Word at Times New Roman 4pt.
More reasons why I like the OS I'm using right now: Don't have to open Snipping Tool, just press shift+prtscr

(Downside: random freezing sometimes)
You don't need to use the snipping tool on windows... just use windows+S
Snipping tool makes it easy to copy/paste things directly onto the CS, rather than prtscr which then I'd have to manually crop the image.

nah the switch windows key still works, but when you press Ctrl+Switch Windows or Ctrl+Shift+Switch Windows, you get a message saying: "The ability to take screenshots has been disabled by your administrator." :roll:

Next thing you know, we won't even be able to copy and paste stuff smh :x

I don't think anyone said this but this trick was really helpful to me. You can get below 6 pt font on google docs by first making a word document and then uploading it to google drive and editing it as a google doc. That way you get a lot of perks from both word and google docs.

Doesn't google docs support font size below 6 pt now?
