  1. Mac Slow Performance from boot time to opening of any MS Office 2016 App

    I just upgraded to El Capitan 10.11.3 then upgraded from MS Office 2011 to 2016. Opening of MS Apps very slow. Help. I ran every Mac diagnostic test possible, cleared NVRAM, cleared cache... Everything runs slow.

  2. Improve HELP

    In the pre-Ribbon versions of Word, searching for a term (for example: "Snap to Grid") used to give a sort list of relevant pages from a reference manual covering Word. Now Help gives hundreds of hits, but rarely anything that fixes the problem.

    I usually resort to Google. However there are many versions of Word, and Microsoft sites are very bad at telling you what version they are referring to.

  3. Giant bug saving docs in MS Office 2011 on El Capitan

    Operating System: Mac OSX El Capitan 10.11.13
    Software: Microsoft Office 2011, latest update 14.6.0

    When a user attempts to save or save as the save window is too large to even see the save button. If you attempt to close the details and reopen the details the save button is visible; however, now the top of the project window is hidden beneath the menu bar. Without a way to grab the project window, it is impossible to reposition back to full functionality. The only options are to just press enter to save, when save window is open (Forget being able…

  6. Improved pattern search

    Hello
    For pattern or regex or grep search, I use often LibreOffice, because they had a better one. But also their has not all commands included.

    So pleas, improve the pattern search with a better search and more replace commands.

    Plus a better combination of pattern and format search and replace. This is better than in LO. But also not really useful.

    Greetings

  7. link bug by creating html

    Hello
    I have written a passage with a word in greek as italic. This is also a link to another App (which is possible since Word 16). Unfortunately its not possible here.

    Original:
    Als er persönlich Jesus als Herr, wörtlich „κύριε“ (Nestle et al. 2012: Apg 9,5), bezeichnete.

    Output as html:
    Als er persönlich Jesus als
    Herr, wörtlich „<a href="accord://read/NA28-T#Acts9,5"><i><span lang=EL
    style='color:windowtext;text-decoration:none'>
    ___</span></i></a><span
    style='color:#46260D'>“</span> </span><span lang=DE-CH>(Nestle et al. 2012: <a
    href="accord://read/NA28-T#Acts
    9,5"><span style='color:windowtext;text-decoration:
    none'>Apg 9,5</span></a>)</span><span lang=DE-CH>, bezeichnete.</span></p>

    You see the long Underline? Here is now the displayed word missing.

  11. Copy from a .pdf improvements

    Hello

    I find Word as the best tool for copy and paste from a pdf to a editor.

    But often the best can improve:
    often the word order are wrong in Word after copy and paste
    often the paragraph mark is on false place. What has to be separated through a paragraph mark is together and what has to be together is separated through a paragraph mark. This happens most if I copy a TOC from a pdf to Word. Or when it has two columns, then Word is overwhelmed.

  13. Page numbers in html

    If I make .pdf then the page numbers are always embedded. I would love to have this also be creating html. E.g. [page 45]

    If you add save as ePub. This would be a huge step forward against the others. Especially for scholarly writings. Then its easier later to quote.

  14. base64 encoding inline images in html and html filtered

    Hello

    I absolut love the new save as website filtered. But I need one more option. If I save some .docx with images then I get the new html file and a folder with the images.
    But theres a way to create inline images in html, it's called Base64 encoding images. You'll find a lot of informations on the web. Anyway this creates one html file with inline images.

    So as output options:
    all the others then,
    Save as website
    Save as website, with inline images
    Save as website, filtered
    Save as website, filtered with inline images

    Greetings

  15. Resume for Office Applications

    Intro: For almost 5 years, since Apple released Mac OS X Lion in July 2011), Mac users enjoyed "Resume" feature that enables applications to re-open in exactly the same state as before quitting the application or restarting the system, including window positions and contents of unsaved files.

    Problem: Lack of the "Resume" feature is what makes me dread logging off and restarting Windows. Especially when I have multiple Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents open in different virtual desktops on two monitors - having to re-create this setup after the restart is really annoying.

    Suggestion: I suggest Microsoft implements this functionality…

  18. The Audio Recorder is not reliable which is entirely unacceptable. I open up my document to record lecture and it won't record.

    I've restarted my computer multiple times and installed the update, still, no recording is happening.
