  2. 'Word cannot save or create this file. The disk may be full' - this is rubbish, plenty of space on both of my Macs. Please fix.

    Please fix incompatibility of Word with Mac El Capitan. Tired of losing files of my macbook and iMac. Looking for alternative to Microsoft programs to switch.

  3. Crashes too often, keyboard shortcuts don't work AT ALL, and foreign key is unstable

    Currently I'm using Word 2011, after the last two updates, the program progressively got worse.

    First, when I use the keyboard shortcuts, they fail to change what I typed into what I want. For example, I type --> or <-- and it doesn't change into an arrow, as it used to with the previous updates. It is annoying because it used to be a basic format change, but now I have to manually find that arrow in symbols.

    Second, I could be working on something and suddenly it crashes or when I close one of the Word windows, the entire…

  4. We need to be able to Copy-Paste into the Find function!

    It is quite frankly idiotic that I have to type every single letter of every word or phrase into WORD's Find function instead of being able to copy & paste them as before. What's up with that?!

    After using this update for several months, I can safely say it is NOT an upgrade in any way.

  5. Make word 2011 work with 10.6.8 again, I think it crashes my Mac

    I think your update for word from 12th of January for Mac is a killer app... please test it.

  6. The spell checker should not confuse the lower case i with the lower case l in tables. Changes back a lot.

    Allow for changes between lower case I and L that do not switch back spontaneously in tables. It is frustration and embarrassing when I write tests.

  8. Bring back Polish Dictionary. This is step backward

    I am a Polish journalist living in Canada. In 1991 I persuaded Adobe and Microsoft to start using Polish fonts and spellchecks. It took you years to catch up with APPLE, who virtually monopolized publishing business in Poland for newspapers books and magazines. I use Word since 1995. After newest update 14.6.2 (16029) of Word for Mac 2011 I do not see possibility of using Polish for Normal. There are 100 million people in the world using Polish, are you starting to discriminate us like Hitler and his friend Stalin?
    If I do not get response within 10 days I…

  10. Permanently FIX this problem that got worse under El Capitan: "Word could not create the work file. Check the amount of disk space..."

    Some call it "Fix saving bug in El Capitan"

    I "sort of" fixed it by assigning a place for autosave files under Preferences but IT STILL HAPPENS, seemingly randomly, and it still CRASHES Word, just not as much. Doesn't happen to Excel or PPT.

    This did not happen with Office/Word back to 10.6.8, only until upgrade to 10.11.2 (and not 10.11.1). However it has been around for seemingly forever for some users.

    MSFT, please FIX this issue permanently.

  12. MicroSoft word for Mac - 2008 Version 12.3.6 (130206) is to slow to react to selected actions. It takes too long to open and to save.

    The Version 12.3.6 (130206) does not perform very well. It takes too long to open, close and save. My computer is an iMac 21.5 inch Mid 2014 1.4 GHz Intel Core i5 Processor with 8GB 1700 MHz DDR3 memory, so it is not an "old" machine! I think this version of Word is pretty feeble.

  14. Normally I love microsoft office products, but I have some serious problems this time. The last two time I bought office, I bought it at th

    Since I haven't been given enough words to give my opinion, it seems evident that listening is not your strong point. For the first time in history, I would anxiously entertain the possibility of an office competitor to replace microsoft. Please stay out of my personal documents and please don't ask me to allow you to connect to my work in progress. I already had to pay twice for one office program, but your system refuses to admit microsoft error.

  16. Please prevent "summary" mode from slowing Word when using track changes. (bug)

    I am editing a lengthy document filled with comments. Several times now, while modifying a comment, I have somehow called up the "summary" panel. It appears that the panel is collecting data on my document, but this can take up to 10 minutes, during which I am locked out of the program.

  17. Saving or printing a large file now prints as separate files broken into 1-3 pages due to this last update. Can we fix this glitch please!

    Fix the glitch that is causing Word to print large files as broken separate files. Also, when I save and send via email a file, it is now showing up all distorted. This did not happen until I installed the most recent update. It is causing all sorts of problems for me.

  18. Allow all keys and modifiers to be used for custom keyboard shortcuts.

    Arrow keys on MacBook Pro cannot be used, unlike in Word 2011. Please restore this functionality.
