Word is bad for me

Just spent an hour formatting a floating text figure in Word.  My goodness, why do people pay for this product?  In LaTeX, I just tell the engine I have a figure, or a table, and it floats it for me, and cuts the text scroll appropriately.  I don’t want to position the figure, I just want it where it belongs relative to the text.  What you see is all you get, I guess.

So I have some more gray hairs, and will get more every day until this document is done.
