  2. Embedded html link from .doc to .pdf

    I'm using Word 2016 on Mac, but when I save a .pdf file from a .doc document it lost hyperlink.
    In details, if I want to create an hyperlink starting to a simple word (ex: industry name) who take me to industry's website, saving .doc as .pdf will lost the hyperlink, but formatted word remain ad an hypertext.

    Word now provides the option to generate a tagged PDF (which preserves hyperlinks) in version 15.23.1 and above. This functionality is available for many languages, and we’re working on adding support for the remaining languages.”

  3. Why don't you keep the same functions as in Word 2011?

    Office Mac 2011 is very complete. However in Office Mac 2016 we miss various functions (such as import .bas files in VBE, etc.). It makes the application very incomplete. Sometimes I find it unusable. To this, we must add tons of crashes when working with the Word, Excel, etc.

    Do keep same functionality as in Office 2011.

    Regards,

    John

  4. How-To: Import Macros (*.bas file) from Word for Mac 2011 into Word for Mac 2016

    Please provide a checklist or "How To" as to how to select a *.bas Macro file created in Word for Mac 2011 and import it into the new Word for Mac 2016.

    Also, please work on improving actual VBE editor functionality, at least to the level it worked in the 2011 edition.
