  1. Big problem: "Save as" page vertically over extends my screen!! Ug!

    ever since your last Microsoft update, the "save as" page expands beyond the vertical boarder of my screen and I cannot access the options to locate my newly created file into a "new folder" nor can I "cancel" or "enter." I am forced to save it in pre-existing folders. I can't even "cancel" the operation. All links at the bottom of the "Save as" page are inaccessible. It is a big pain in the *!@#.

  3. When you

    When you click on different first header it should KEEP the header on that page, not throw it away. Then, if you give up and just decide to delete the other headers, it should not be a complicated process. It used to be very easy. Now I'm having to search the web to find out how to keep the header I want and throw out the rest. This is a total waste of my time. I can't even describe how frustrating this is!

  6. Better Uninstall Instructions

    An uninstall followed by reinstall should fix most Office 2016 for Mac problems. The uninstall instructions posted at https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Uninstall-Office-2016-for-Mac-eefa1199-5b58-43af-8a3d-b73dc1a8cae3 do not have this effect. More often than not, problems simply recur after reinstallation. There are hundreds of examples at the Office 2016 for Mac section of answers.microsoft.com. Many Office 2016 for Mac problems that are not fixed by uninstall/reinstall, go away when the user creates a new user profile. The fact that a new profile fixes the issue demonstrates that the uninstall procedure is incomplete.

  7. Your paying customers should not be your beta testers

    Really, the kinds of bugs your users are finding are nothing short of embarrassing/humiliating for MS and infuriating for us.

  10. Command "Para Keep with next" is missing in ribbon customisation

    Thanks for finally adding the possibility to customise the ribbon. After trying Word 2016 some time ago I have had to revert to Word 2011 for the lack of this. I was happy to see the June update brought back this option. But I quickly got disappointed: (1) you seem to have added all commands in the customisation list, *except* "Para Keep with Next"!!! How is that possible? This is one of the main commands I want to add to have quick access to. (2) The customiser used to present all commands in logical groupings in Word 2011 (categories from…

  14. word shift + .

    office 2011 for mac
    word
    有一個bug
    在mac os 10.11.6
    office version 14.6.6
    使用mac os注音輸入法
    使用word
    輸入SHIFT + . 會得到句點 這時候SHIFT沒有放開 放開. 然後按下ENTER

    也就是SHIFT + . 接著 SHIFT + ENTER
    這時候word會出現line break的符號
    但此時word檔案已經壞掉了
    如果點選「顯示所有非列印字元」就會看見一堆亂碼
    然後存檔起來 重新啟動word 查看這個檔案還是一樣亂碼
    我一份兩千多字的檔案繼這樣毀掉了
    碩士論文也差點不保
    你們要快點修好喔
    加油

  15. Too many updates & stability concerns

    I am a professional writer and depend on stability and reliability of my most frequently used app: Word. I felt like I had total control over my "tool box", when I was on the old Word for Mac, a local install without that 365 subscription that I have now. Ever since, the high fequency of (sometimes huge) updates has caused me to feel quite powerless and often frustrated indeed. I don't need constantly added features or improvements. I just want a stable (and lightweight!) Word. And unfortunately, it's just growing and growing in size, with feature overload and RAM hunger…

  16. Make the help search function actually work

    The help menu appears to offer a search box, however this is greyed out & does not function. I know its a bit radical, but how about actually making it work?

  17. how about making it work without crashing!!!! & when you offer to recover the document I was working on, actually recover it

    Write software that does not keep crashing every time I try & print.
    And when the software offer to recover the document I was working on, actually recover it, not present me with a blank document.
