    The new option is a rather cheap and ineffective solution (not to mention that it requires using some online service, making it unusable when not connected to the Internet). While hyperlinks are preserved, cross-references and the links in the TOC are still lost. Really, this defeats the whole purpose of using Word and wasting one's time to set up all of the afore-mentioned.

    Not to mention that, if there are any custom fonts in that document, they are LOST when the new export to PDF option is used, which may result as in my case in significant changes in the layout of the document.

    I completely agree. The way Word exports to PDFs currently is beyond useless. What is the point of adding table of contents and cross-references if they are not retained when exporting to PDF? Hello, Microsoft? Anyone there?

    I've had a similar problem with PowerPoint 2016, which would not open or would even corrupt files made by PowerPoint 2007 on Windows. Backwards compatibility seems to be a huge issue with Office 2016 for Mac.

    Also, Word 2016 would not load the contents of a document I had made in Word 2010 on Windows. A simple document of roughly 80 pages with a few pictures here-and-there and custom settings for the styles, but no bullet&numbering, no TOC, no cross-references or anything. Pretty basic stuff. Word 2016 would only load the first 60 pages of that specific file and the remaining 20 pages would never show up on the screen, there would be just some blank space that you could scroll through, but no pages would appear. Meanwhile, I was able to open the same file just normally on OneDrive and on Windows. What can I say, Office for Mac is nothing short of a bad joke.

    Hi, I've had the same problem with Word spell checking only parts of my documents. To be honest, whenever I've had to write long papers I've always had this problem (in fact, I remember only one time when it worked as promised and it felt like miracle).

    Even when marking everything in a document with Cmd+A and adjusting the checkbox before "do not check spelling or grammar" so that it remains unchecked and pressing OK would do nothing to fix it. The next time I would open the same dialogue box, I would still see a dash inside of the checkbox, showing that for some parts of my document spell checking is still disabled.

    Up to this day, I haven't found a solution to this problem. What is more annoying is that once Word does this to a file on Mac, the same thing happens to the same file on Windows, i.e. as far as spell checking is concerned, the file is permanently ruined.

    Very unprofessional on Microsoft's behalf. I can't excuse them when a feature as basic and as essential as this does not work well.

    I fully agree that the size of the 2016 applications is blasphemous, given that they bring little to no improvements in comparison with the 2011 edition, except for enhancements in the aesthetic department.

    As far as I understand their size is so huge because each of the 2016 programs acts as a self-contained application and they do not share common resources. So, for example, even the fonts are embedded separately in the different apps, which means that the same thing is stored on your computer in a number of copies. Very frustrating indeed. It seems like they are trying to make it easier for themselves rather than more convenient for their users.

    There was actually a workaround to this in the past. You could select the text that you want highlighted, the press Cmd+D to get to the "Format Font" menu and then you could select to apply a number of different options, including a fully-customizable highlight colour. I can't find it there anymore, though. I can't believe they keep removing features instead of adding new ones!
