  1. Pin file to Recent Documents

    MS Office has a great feature that allows you to PIN documents in the recent documents list, ie often used files. This feature is not available on Mac... please add it!!

  2. Can't remove the upgrade-note for office365 at the top

    Apparently I'm not using the best Word for Mac ever by using Office 2011, because I got reminded EVERY DAY to upgrade to Office365 by a note at the top of the Word in a yellow stripe.
    This is very kind, but I don't want to do this decision EVERY DAY as nobody wants, that every day anyone rings at door, asking, if you want to purchase a new product. Is it possible to remove this reminder anyhow or do I have to switch to Open Office (which would be the best Word ever in that point of view)?

  3. Mac Slow Performance from boot time to opening of any MS Office 2016 App

    I just upgraded to El Capitan 10.11.3 then upgraded from MS Office 2011 to 2016. Opening of MS Apps very slow. Help. I ran every Mac diagnostic test possible, cleared NVRAM, cleared cache... Everything runs slow.

  4. Giant bug saving docs in MS Office 2011 on El Capitan

    Operating System: Mac OSX El Capitan 10.11.13
    Software: Microsoft Office 2011, latest update 14.6.0

    When a user attempts to save or save as the save window is too large to even see the save button. If you attempt to close the details and reopen the details the save button is visible; however, now the top of the project window is hidden beneath the menu bar. Without a way to grab the project window, it is impossible to reposition back to full functionality. The only options are to just press enter to save, when save window is open (Forget being able…

  5. Protected View Word for Mac has a flaw with Command C.

    The Cut Copy and Paste Icons in the Ribbon and Command X and V do not work. But Command C still copies and result can be pasted elsewhere. Fix Command C to not work in Protected Mode.

  6. Improved pattern search

    Hello
    For pattern or regex or grep search, I use often LibreOffice, because they had a better one. But also their has not all commands included.

    So pleas, improve the pattern search with a better search and more replace commands.

    Plus a better combination of pattern and format search and replace. This is better than in LO. But also not really useful.

    Greetings

  13. Template Problem of MAC

    Neither of the CD covers will open from the templates menu. When you click on either the Stripes or Spin CD covers, it will only open their corresponding CD Label. Is this a setting issue? Very frustrating

  14. Please put the New Folder box at the top of the page.

    Please put the New Folder box at the top of the page. If you have many folders, you are unable to resize the box to get the New Folder option to show when you are using the "Save As" option in Word for Mac.

  16. Fix saving bug with El Capitan

    Bug on Mac and other MS Office applications when running on El Capitan OS prevent saving.
    Pop up message:

    Word cannot save or create this file. The disk may be full or write-protected.
    Try one or more of the following:
    * Free more memory.
    * Make sure that the disk you want to save the file on is not full, write-protected, or damaged.
    (Document1.docx)

    This has happened to many users (see e.g. this thread: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/mac/forum/macoffice2016-macword/error-message-on-mac-when-saving-word-2016/d660ed3f-02b3-4708-a7bf-ea5441c606dc)

    Even using an older version of Word is an issue. NB: there is certainly enough space, seems that the issue is MS Office attempts…

  18. Office 2011 Doesn't show sidebar properly most (ALL?) the time

    Ever since El Capt. most (ALL) of the time when I go to Save As a document in Word and I think Power Point and Excel as well, the sidebar on the left of the Save As dialog does not show the Sidebar as appears in the Finder. There are only a very few icons like my User disk which makes it a very arduous trial to navigate to where I might want to place my file. Please fix this bug in an update!

    Thanks

    Herb

    I gave up and printed via 'Preview' which does have a Two Sided option. Why does Microsoft so often make it difficult to get HELP
