  1. Fix Needed: Word for Mac often crashes with El Capitan

    I am sure I am not alone. This may be an El Capitan problem, but MS-Word (14.5.9 [151119]) often crashes since I installed El Capitan (OS X [10.11.2]). Please fix!

    • Bring back Toolbars

      It seems quite clear that Toolbars are gone forever in Office 2016 Mac, but I figure I should at least voice my discontent rather than passively accepting this poor decision. Its really too bad that there is no effective competition for Office. We'd probably have a much better product if there were.

        • Add split screen view like OS X El Capitan "split screen view" for better productivity 2011 version and up

          Hello. Ever since OS X El Capitan had SPLIT SCREEN VIEW, I tried it with mac version of words/ office apps...but it's not compatible. I guess you guys haven't thought about increasing productivity by making it allow the words...and other office apps to split screen with another app..or office apps. If i wanted to do a research paper, I would like to have MS words on one side as the websites with informations on other side...so that way i can easily type something from the source.

          Please allow split screen view to happen. Thanks.

                Thanks for the feedback! Adding Dropbox as a place is available on the iOS version of Office today. However, it is not yet available on Mac. We’ll consider this feature in the long term. In the meantime, we recommend you use the Dropbox sync client and access your Dropbox files through your Dropbox folder on your Mac, either from Office, or through Finder.
