  1. Fix(office 2016 for mac): pages went blank when editing some documents at same time or big size document, and word would crash after then.

    pages went blank when I am editing some documents at same time or editing a big size document. The office word would crash sometime after then. My os x is EI caption from 10.10.1 to 10.11.2 and office 2016 version from first stable version to now 15.17.1. Error reports were always sent back to microsoft, but it still existed after many updates.

          • Display Accessibility for Word for Mac 2008

            The Display Accessibility Preferences for Word for Mac 2008 need to be adjusted. Unfortunately, the current Default setting is the largest visual display option to allow you to view the "Save" button when Saving a Word document. For most people over 40 years of age, the Default setting text size is way too small, and causes severe eye strain after only a few minutes working with Word. Please adjust your SAVE/Cancel buttons to be viewable even in the "Largest" scaled choice. That way the SAVE/CANCEL buttons will be viewable in ALL Scaled views, not just the small to smallest text…

            • please stop sending me daily notices about updates available. New updates are too disruptive of my work, so I don't want any of them.

              please stop sending me daily notices about updates. updates are too disruptive of my work, so I don't want ANY of them. I can't figure out how to tell you to stop sending them, as you only offer choices about when to send the update. my answer is, NEVER, and i suggest you offer that as an option when you nag and nag about updating.

              • Word and El Capitain

                When selecting "Format" Font, in Word, using El Capitain, the color wheel spins for 15 to 20 seconds before I can make a selection. What is wrong???????? Is anybody trying to fix these problems?

                • Give Mac Word the same look and feel as PC Word - will help addin developers.

                  Mac Word is still using the old toolbar interface - mostly... which means that it's going backwards for us to convert custom Ribbons for Mac users. It's also really arduous developing for the Mac version on a Mac. Hasn't been worth the trouble for me so far - even though I bought a Mac to look into it.

                    • Please fix instabilities that lead to crashes in 10.11.2: saving and opening files from menu

                      Crashes happen when I save a document to disk, open a recent document, etc. from File menu or from menu icon. I get a dialogue box that states the disk is full and the operation cannot be completed, and then the application essentially crashes (Force Quit).

                      • Return context menus in tables to show "distribute columns evenly"

                        A very recent update to Word 2016 removed the right click context menu in tables and removed the distribute columns evenly. Please restore it at your earliest convenience.

                              Currently I have professors that add comments to my papers, as they are attached in emails in outlook. It would be helpful if the comments could be printed along with the paper, from outlook. Currently only the paper prints, not the comments.

                                    • Nothing but problems since the past few updates in 2011

                                      Now when I try to open an Office file I keep getting a window asking if I want to do updates and if I want to send feedback. I check the booked then it asked my names and initials. Then I get a request for what kind of file I want to create. Forget the file I clicked on to open, nothing happened, 2 minutes gone need to click on it again. Save it but gee... nothing happens so the next time I go into an MS Office app, you guessed it have to go through the same procedure again.

                                      • Copying words from the web into Word for Mac

                                        Something's happened recently and I don't know why:
                                        When I copy text from the web, something happens when I paste it in the word-file I'm working with: When I push the format-button, more og less of what I've written disappears!! And I cannot push the arrow-regret-button, because then I can lose even more of my own text. If this doesn't get fixed, I feel I have to go back to the Microsoft & computer system I had before I decided to try Mac. There I can regret every thing I've done, and never lose a thing. (I hope I've made…

                                        • Make the "switch windows" shortcut easier and more obvious

                                          I know from of old that to switch between programs on my screen(s) I toggle with [cmd] (Command/Apple/loopy square/propeller) and [tab] keys.

                                          Up to now I've been manually switching between open file windows in Word by clicking on the Window menu and selecting the file I wanted, but I always felt there ought to be a way of doing so by keyboard shortcut like toggling between programs.

                                          I have now found this, buried deep in the "Keyboard shortcuts" section of the Help menu ([cmd] + [F6], and on my MacBook Pro I have to use the [fn] key as well).
