Uninstalled it and reinstalled 2008 version
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. …

Absolutely terrible. Either partition your Mac to run Windows or buy PC
This product is awful for many reasons.
1) Outlook does not use Word as its editor. Therefore, FORMAT PAINT does not exist, sp This product is awful for many reasons.
1) Outlook does not use Word as its editor. Therefore, FORMAT PAINT does not exist, spellcheck is poor, read receipts aren't available, and there are very limited features. The lack of format paint is a major time thief.
2) Outlook is terribly bugged. If I send an email in 12 font, the receiver will always see it as 9.5 font, which is nearly unreadable unless you have a microscope, which is fine if the receiver is a scientist. If I send something in 16 font, it shows up as 13 to the receiver. Makes absolutely no sense.
3) On multiple occasions, I sent emails using one font, color, and size. I've checked my outbox and it looks normal. Yet, the receiver will see several font sizes, multiple colors, and some unreadable text. This makes me look terribly unprofessional, as I'm sure most readers assume it was a user error and not an Apple/Microsoft glitch.
4) In the PC version, the entire email remains intact if you respond from your navigation pane. However, in the Mac version, responding from the navigation pane will delete most of the previous conversation. You must fully open the email and respond if you want the integrity of the previous communication to remain.
5) Sometimes you will write an email and then the font automatically changes colors and size. Press delete and it goes back to normal, but press another button and it glitches again. Another stupid time thief.
5) OneNote is unavailable on Mac.
6) Product updates are few and far between.
7) Salesforce does not integrate with Office for Mac. On a PC, an email will immediately save to the Salesforce platform. On a Mac, users must manually input this data. I've checked with Salesforce and they've confirmed this is the case.
The list goes on and on. The product is terrible. I am abandoning Mac for these reasons alone. I love my Mac, but flawed emails, which were not my fault, are enough to switch. I cannot afford to lose potential business from communication glitches. Unless Microsoft and Apple fix these problems, you should just get a PC. …

I paid retail for this!? I expect a free upgrade to a new version that runs
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. …
