  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  17. Right to Left Home+End shortcuts

    When working on a document in RTL, change the keyboard shortcut so that cmd+right arrow is Home and cmd+left arrow is End.
    It works like that in Pages so I believe it can be done...

  20. As someone who occasionally travels to remote places with out network connection I am discon

    Stable subscriptions. I occasionally travel to remote places where I do not have network access. It is worrysome to have Office occasionally ask me to sign into my account. What if it decides I need to sign in while I am traveling and don't have network access? I think I might not be able to use Office. This could be a huge problem.

    Possibly this happens only after software updates. One offered solution might be that after every update I run Office to confirm. But you know what: software updates on my computer happen all the time. One thing or…
