  2. Complete Deletion of Document

    I was working on a ten-paged research paper for a class, and word completely closed out my document without saving it. It is absolutely ridiculous that the program could not recover my document, and completely crashed out of the blue. I am disgustingly disappointed, and will be using Google Docs from now on.

  3. Automatic resizing when Word window is moved to a smaller (second) monitor

    I use 2 screens, my Mac screen and an external screen. Every app window gets resized automatically when moved from the bigger monitor to the smaller laptop screen, that is, except Word 2011 (and Excel and Powerpoint) windows. This is a bug that should be fixed.

  5. Organizational editing in Sidebar pane.

    Return to the functionality of an earlier version of Word. Permit the movement of a header (and subsequent text below the header) to a new location in the body of the document. This will allow the user to move whole chapters of a large document (thesis, dissertation, novel, etc.) around easily. I am going back to using Scrivener for composition simply because this ability is not present.

  8. Fix the bugs for Word for Mac

    This new version is terrible. I have been trying to insert a chart into a PPT and have had either PPT or excel quit five or six times. I am finally giving up and going to the library to finish my work. Ridiculous.

  9. High CPU usage after update

    After updating to Version 15.21.1, Microsoft Word 2016 uses over 50% of a CPU core, while sitting idle. The issue does not occur with new documents, but when a document created prior to this update is open, the high CPU usage is unavoidable. Please address this issue, because the application is hardly usable with this bug.

  10. Formatting

    Word randomly stops auto spell check in english and switches to another language. Also, I cannot seem to be able to get the formatting to be consistent throughout the document (100 plus page document). The line spacing switches from 1 to 1.15, the paragraphs sometimes have spaces between them and sometimes do not.

  14. Latest update 14.6.3 installation failed - running 10.11.3

    Downloaded recent update on Office 2011 for Mac. Running El Cap 10.11.3. Installation failed. MSFT please fix this, and allow users to download the update again and reinstall. When I tried to reinstall the update by checking for updates it said no updates were available, after the failed install. Also - there are many crashes of either Word or PPT with this suite. I had to turn off autosave, which was the problem that appeared with 10.11.2 OSX install, but now PPT crashes when saving files and Word crashes when opening files, both from the File menu.

  16. Word 2011 : the grammar check in German does not work !

    In Word 2004 the grammar check for the German language was OK. In Word 2011 not. When there is a mistake, the sentence is underlined in green, OK, but there is no suggestion of correction.

  17. File Corrupted---at least the font is. All I did was open the file.

    I had a couple Word docs open. I had saved multiple versions of them over time. The battery ran out. The file automatically opened upon startup and I see mixed in with my words all these wingdings and things, some of them overlapping.

  18. You should be able to delete custom document properties via Applescript

    As I mentioned at

    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/mac/forum/macoffice2016-macstart/deleting-custom-document-properties-with/295e6685-5285-4ee5-a0fa-cb592da36ae1

    You can add and edit custom document properties via Applescript but don't seem to be able to delete them. Seems a bit inconsistent that you can't?
