If you ever had a job that had an MSDN account that ended being helpfully linked with your personal account on your home PC.
And then left that job.
You know what I am talking about... :/
It keep saying there is an issue with my linked account. But I can't unlink it, because I can't login into it, because I am no longer working over there, obviously. And it keep warning me every single day.... This Artificial Stupidity in action! So damn annoying!
I once had my MSDN or whatever account linked to my employer (for partner benefits).
Then I left the company and the only one who could unlink it... You guessed it, was my ex-employer
Luckily we ended on good-ish terms (although I left before getting a new job and I took unpaid leave, so if anything, that sends a message ).
After my request to unlink, they did so within a day.
Still ridiculous, it's my account and it's only linked because I allow it.
I had a similar issue trying to get my personal Microsoft account unlinked from a dead email address. As far as I remember it took quite some time and a lot of fiddling about to get it done. Oh, and Microsoft help - not.
There's a reason I don't link personal and work accounts...
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
And still, at one point in time I ended up with something similar to the OP's situation - my work MSDN account somehow got linked with my personal account. I could never figure out how to break the link, and still maintain access to what I needed.
On a similar note, I downloaded the old Express versions from MS on my work account email. A few years later, I received a full MSDN license through the same company. The Express downloads blocked the assignment and still cause issues a decade later. I had to setup a separate hotmail account for my corporate license.
Trouble with that is when you get sent "modern" word documents and can't read them ...

I am very happy using the free TextMaker from SoftMaker
I suppose I could try it and see, but if you have a lot of experience with it does it do index marks, and create indexes as easily as Word? I did all the formatting for a book in Word, and it worked well. Tried it in Libre and other offices, and always started swearing when I found out how difficult it was to edit index entries. Indexing a book with thousands of index marks is a real chore if they can't be edited easily.
That video doesn't address the editing stage of the indexing process. The following video only briefly touches on the editing capabilities of Word at the timestamp I've linked it to: Building An Index In Word: How The Experts Do It - YouTube. When the entries are visible like they are at that stage you can use Word's find and replace on the entries themselves to adjust them. For instance, if your document used the words 'thunder' and 'thunderbolt', and you realized it after creating the entries for them, you could find the 'thunder' in the entries by searching for "thunder" (with quotes) to step to each one, and replace them with "thunder/bolt". Repeat the process for 'thunderbolt' and recreate the index! Easy! But not in any of the freebies I've seen. Unless TextMaker has it, but it isn't in a video.
Tried it in Libre and other offices, and always started swearing when I found out how difficult it was to edit index entries.
For general needs (simple documents, basic formatting, TOC), most office tools work just fine, even GoogleDocs. But if the need is more complex, the only one with which I've had success that didn't have me pulling what's left of my hair out is Word.
A couple of years ago I was required to use LibreOffice, but the formatting was taking me 10 times what Word did. So I wrote the document in Word, then did a 1-time conversion to Libre. It was the only way I could complete the job on time and within budget.
But if the need is more complex, the only one with which I've had success that didn't have me pulling what's left of my hair out is Word.
That has been my conclusion as well. Long ago everyone was bragging about how excellent Serif PagePlus was for the price for a layout program. Word was far easier, especially editing index entries. I do hate how fiddly inserting graphics can be, but once you've 'got it,' it works.
I installed MS SQL server developer 2019 edition last year. but now I find it occupied almost 300G on my C drive.
the total size of my C drive is 500G, so I have to uninstall this SQL server 2019 instance to get enough space to install new Windows patches.
what's wrong with my SQL sever developer 2019 installation?
diligent hands rule....
