  3. Office 2011 Doesn't show sidebar properly most (ALL?) the time

    Ever since El Capt. most (ALL) of the time when I go to Save As a document in Word and I think Power Point and Excel as well, the sidebar on the left of the Save As dialog does not show the Sidebar as appears in the Finder. There are only a very few icons like my User disk which makes it a very arduous trial to navigate to where I might want to place my file. Please fix this bug in an update!

    Thanks

    Herb

  5. 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.

  9. 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.

    Greetings

  11. 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.

    Greetings

  12. 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

  14. 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.

  18. I am using Word 2011 on my Mac and would like to address my concern on the non-printable texts that is shown in the document.

    Is there a way to hide the non-printable marks in such a way that not all of it would be hidden? I want to edit a file that has non-printable marks but not on all parts of the file. I can do it manually by copying and pasting it but hopefully there is a way(or a button to be specific) to shorten things up. [Glenn: Well said! Thx for writing up my question so clearly! Hank]

  19. Fix line endings and other quirks in saving to filtered HTML

    Currently, HTML files are saved with Windows line endings (CRLF). They should be saved with Unix/MacOS X line endings (LF), as they did in previous Word versions.

    Also, when saving to HTML, Word improperly adds an .fld extension to any related folder. Folder extensions are not standard on the Mac. Again, this error appeared only with Word 2016.

    Also, Word 2011 and 2016 both export HTML with incorrect image dimensions. Word adds two pixels to both the width and the height in the image tag, even when the picture has no border in Word.

    Finally, Word's filtered HTML does not…

  20. Word for Mac Opening New Document from Template

    Ever since the latest download, every time I try to open a new doc from my templates, the window pops up for a second, then it disappears and nothing happens. The cursor just kind of glitches until I quit word. Can that be fixed ASAP please?
