Applescript object is limited to 1 parameter and returns only 32720 chars to a VBA module !!!
There were no such limitations in the Word 2011 MacScript() command.
Please fix this Applescript object of Word 2016.

Definitely wish AppleScript support would be improved. I run into issues with the handles returned by "open" calls.

It would be good if Automator actions were also included, as this is also a feature removed in Office 2016...
