    Legacy Form Fields are not fillable in Word for iOS. Forms created with modern Content Controls and protected area exceptions can be filled in Word for iOS with no problem. Time to update your forms!

    Forms with Content Controls and protected area exceptions are fillable in Word for iOS. Legacy Form Fields are _not_ fillable.

    I write for Microsoft, and they recommend NOT writing in a formal style as part of their "Voice brand". The "formal writing" preset in Word is 30 years out of date and needs to be refreshed.

    Embedding requires OLE, a Windows only technology. Office for Mac includes a limited port of OLE, so Word can be embedded in Excel and PowerPoint and Excel can be embedded in Word and PowerPoint. That's all.
    Apple has no interest in OLE. Microsoft has no interest in programming OLE for another company's file format.

    Document embedding uses OLE, a Windows-only technology. Microsoft has included OLE in Office for Mac, but it doesn't exist in macOS. You can embed Word in Excel and PowerPoint and Excel in Word and PowerPoint. That's all.

    Embedding uses OLE, a Windows only technology. Office for Mac uses a mini form of OLE, but Adobe is never going to adopt it on the Mac, and Apple will never add it to macOS.

    Insert Object uses OLE, a Windows-only technology. Microsoft has added OLE to Office for Mac, but it will not be added to other Mac programs.

    Embedding uses OLE, a Windows-only technology. Microsoft has added full OLE to Word for Mac and Excel for Mac and partial OLE to PowerPoint. You can embed Word and Excel in PowerPoint.

    Embedding requires OLE, a Windows only technology. On a Mac, OLE has only been added to Office, not other programs.

    Mark as Final makes your presentation read-only. Here's how to do the same thing in PowerPoint for Mac: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/make-a-presentation-in-powerpoint-for-mac-read-only-d8f8ec05-7fc6-4e3a-a92a-098cc23bbd9d

    Headers and footers are specifically for material that repeats on every page. If you want material only on one page, you should be placing it on the page, not the header or footer.

    Word already does this. When you create the style, make it a child of a related style by choosing the parent style in the "Style based on" dropdown. The child definition will then be only the characteristics that are different from the parent. When you update the parent, the child style is automatically updated as well.

    This is easy to fix. Sign out of your Microsoft account, then on the splash screen when the program opens, choose On My Mac for the source of files.

    On the start screen click on Custom, then on Workgroup Templates. Too many steps?
    To set the source for Workgroup templates, choose File>Options>Advanced>General>File Locations. Select the Workgroup templates location and set the folder. You can do this with a group pollcy.
    Syncing the folders is pretty easy, you could even do it with a bit of VBA, but there are lots of solutions already available.

    Stylesets are really just Word templates by that appear in a different place in the interface. If you add "Styleset" to the name and include it in the Workgroup Templates folder, it will be available to all users, though the interface will be different.

    I agree. Mac users should have a Repair utility similar to the Windows version. If not that, then at least an uninstall/reinstall method that actually solves problems, as I've suggested here (add your vote!): https://word.uservoice.com/forums/304942-word-for-mac/suggestions/15153162-better-uninstall-instructions
