  • Uninstalled it and reinstalled 2008 version

    2.0 out of 5 stars

    Buying this was a waste of money and time... I already had the 2008 version of Microsoft Office for Mac, which was much better by Buying this was a waste of money and time... I already had the 2008 version of Microsoft Office for Mac, which was much better by the way. The 2008 version included Entourage (email), and this 2011 version gives the impression it includes Outlook, but it's only the icon, and when you click it prompts you to purchase it separately. Microsoft Word is temperamental and doesn't always give you time to save before crashing. I didn't use PowerPoint or Excel, so I can't comment on those. By the way, why aren't we allowed to purchase Microsoft Word by itself? It would be great to have that option since some of us don't need the other applications... Do yourself a favor and buy iWorks or the 2008 version of Microsoft Office.

    Sage advice: hit the save button frequently or you will lose hours of work. Since I need to edit a lot I have gone back to a cheap PC.

    As others have noted we should demand a refund from Microsoft for this embarrassing beta. Oh wait, I paid full retail!

    Can I gi As others have noted we should demand a refund from Microsoft for this embarrassing beta. Oh wait, I paid full retail!

    Can I give this zero stars? A pico star? Half a star?

    It is s........l........o.......w......
    I am so frustrated that I will give 5 examples that cost me 1 hour of productivity today while building a simple spreadsheet.

    1) opening a new Excel document 10-20 seconds on MacBookPro with 2.3GHz, 8GB RAM, 240 GB of free hard drive space and 2 apps running. It doesn't matter if I have 10 apps open or 1, it's just as slow. Why?

    2) Excel numeric computation of simple math = A1 * B1 takes 4-5 seconds. It takes the same time regardless of the only entry on a new spreadsheet or a larger spreadsheet of 60 months by 150 lines with basic multiplication of 2 to 5 digit numbers. I have an 1991 Powerbook 170 with 25 MHz 68030 that runs Excel much, much faster. Why?

    3) Word scrolling. I've used Word since the days of Multiplan on the first Mac. Scrolling text on a page is obvious and simple. But this version literally takes 4-5 seconds to scroll up or down - and that's assuming you're in scroll mode A or scroll mode B. Should I use the keyboard arrows? Or should I use the "page up" and "page down" keys? Or should I click on the arrows in the UI scroll area? Notice how you literally never know for sure which will work? Notice how you have to click in a place to get it to know what to move - and even then, notice how they don't work consistently?

    4) Copy and paste in Word and Excel. What happened? Suddenly my copy and paste keyboard shortcuts have jumped to voice record? Why? How do I undo or get back other than closing the app. I think it has something to do with hitting "esc" twice in a row, but there's no documentation.

    5) The amount of screen real estate taken up by all the Word and Excel tabs, bars, scrolls, tables, charts, formatting, etc. I figured out that each of these is a product manager's responsibility. And they only get to stay around MSFT if they waste screen real estate and obfuscate the ability to find where to make them disappear and restore more screen area that I can use. (BTW, I have a 15" display plus a second monitor.)

    I remember when I was using Office 2008 and needed to upgrade to 2011 to be compatible with a team member on Windows. Guess what, he's now on a Mac and is also complaining about the Office performance. But he no longer complains about being hacked, so for him it's an improvement.

    It is virtually impossible to create a professional looking email in Outlook for MAC or Office 365 Outlook for MAC.

    Call it was it is ... Outlook 1997 ...that's about when the feature set is from.

    I only use Office to be compatible with others. It is NOT a user-friendly experience. If you don't interact a lot with people usin I only use Office to be compatible with others. It is NOT a user-friendly experience. If you don't interact a lot with people using Office, get iWork - Much better user experience and integrates very well with iOS & iCloud.
