Same to you, Microsoft!

As several of you have already noticed, there is a problem with my first posting of my latest story, The Reluctant Sultan. Recently, I upgraded my now out-of-date Office Suite to Office 365 and have discovered that Microsoft have once again changed the look, format, and nomenclature of their programs, specifically, Word.
As a consequence, I've run into two problems. One, I haven't gotten control of the story breaks (those useful or annoying lines between scenes). When I try to remove them, they simply move to another location.
The second problem is I'm getting edit comments from my editors showing up in the text, even though they aren't there in my word copy.
With the help of Lazeez, I'm trying to work my way through these irritations, but I won't know how successful I am until I post some more work. Please be patient with me. I'll do my best.
Damn you, Bill Gates!
