A working autorecover system
Just lost 3 hours of work: I expected autorecover to work (it is set on every 10 minutes as far as I can see), but no way: nothing happens. This is the umpteenth problem I have with Word 2016. I had just tried it again despite my earlier pledge to stick to Word 2011 after having had earlier problems with Word 2016. Well, I am now returning to Word 2011 again and will stay there until problems are solved. MS: Get your acts together, please, Word 2016 Mac is a huge step backwards compared to Word 2011. What have you been doing?

It's bizarre that AutoRecover doesn't work ... but what's actually worse, is claiming that you have an AutoRecover function when you don't! At least if you know saving is up to you, you'll save more frequently. But if you tell people you have an AutoRecover function--which, Microsoft, you don't, at least in Word for Mac v15 or v16!--people are likely to think, "it doesn't matter, I can always fall back on AutoRecover!
Come on guys, how hard can it be to fix this feature!
