    • "Scale" on Copies and Pages dialog

      Restore "Scale" box to the printer Copies and Pages dialog (so one doesn't need to go to page setup to change % scale)

      • Double-click on title bar does not work as other Mac applications

        In the settings (Dock) you can control the behavior of double click on title bar of window.
        However for the Office 2016 applications this setting is disregarded - double-click always minimizes.

              • Latest update for Microsoft Office

                Posted Dec 14, 2015

                After installing the latest update for Microsoft Office, Word started having problems with fonts and table of contents. Now, I don't have a normal standard Times New Roman it displays it as italic font. It greatly disrupted my documents during finals, it is unacceptable that I have to redo work and from now on wait to install updates after important work has been submitted.

                • speller

                  I am noticing that more and more often MAC word Speller is not picking up or autocorrecting basic spellign mistakes where no other word/option available ie; ahs, (has) and other very basic errors that it does not 'correct' this is pretty frustrating. I woudl have thought speller had greater capacity to pick up errors where no other 'word' possible from configuration of letters. I think it was functioning better when i first got program, but now seems to have become less accurate and less responsive. why might this be the case and can it be upgraded? thanks

                  • Auto-complete date in Word for Mac 2011 should use computer's date

                    I use Word daily and need to include today's date, which only updates when I close the application since the date auto-complete function is set to use the application launch date.

                        Do you really read our messages and take into account our demand and productivity needs? I doubt. A complete lack of respect of the Word Mac team

                        • Stop forcing me to validate my VALID licence! I have to constantly restart and I only upgraded to the latest version yesterday.

                          Stop forcing me to validate my VALID licence! I have to constantly restart and I only upgraded to the latest version yesterday. This is a horrible UX and I've just wasted another 10 minutes restarting my machine in front of people. Just rubbish. Don't you test your products before you release them for mass download? This happens for Outlook as well I am constantly having to validate my file, or can only use it for free, until I restart! Infuriating guys!

                                • Need to describe situaton

                                  In 12/14/15, as I was preparing to give a talk that evening, composing the document on Office 365 Word, when I tried to save it, it lost the document completely. I called Microsoft, talked with Abhay Kumar Dwived, who saw the problem on my computer, tried a few times to retrieve the document unsuccessfully, then hung up! I called back and again the person hung up. So I tried my best to rewrite the document, tried to print it without saving it for fear I would lose it again and it locked up when I tried to print. I tried…

                                  • Restore the "Browse" function to the save window

                                    As it currently stands, there are limited folder options to which files can be saved. There is no way to save a file to a folder that is not one of the four most commonly used folders. For most folks, this isn't an issue, but it is to me and represents a "Let us help you, but only in our approved fashion" that makes Microsoft a product line I avoid buying whenever there is another viable option.

                                        • Get Office 2016 past Beta.

                                          Just get it working and up to Beta standard. So no translation facility, the edit protected forms doesn't work - had to revert to Office for Windows to edit old forms. Forget all the bugs I have found in Excel. If one has a full time job there are just too many bugs or functions missing to allow one to rely on the Mac version in a business environment. Would not be surprised if this were intended!
