  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

    In the Word version 14.6.2 for Mac the option "Language" under "Tools" is no longer available. I need it to change languages within a document.

  16. search within a folder

    On outlook for PC you could search specifically within a folder, with the search bar at the top - you could also display unread only and filter emails within a folder - e.g. list by size, sender within the specific folder. I would love to get that functionality restored on the Mac version

  17. Bug in Word from 2008 till today

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I hereby would like to report a bug, what I've found after days of search and try on two different Macs, with a request for processing and feedback.

  19. Recovered files in trash bin

    I have the most recent version of Word for Mac (2011) edition and after saving my files, shutting down and starting my Mac later in the day, I always end up with recovered files being in the trash bin on my Mac device. While this is more of a nuissance than anything, it really peeves me off that recovered files can't auto delete themselves if Word was properly closed. I have talked with Microsoft about this on the phone (after waiting and attempting for several hours) in the past and was basically told to deal with it because it was…
