      Caution - this version has disabled features

      Customization features are disabled in this version. I have been using older versions for years. What is new - and this is not in the sales material on the Ap Customization features are disabled in this version. I have been using older versions for years. What is new - and this is not in the sales material on the Apple site, is that one must buy the yearly subscription version rather than the one payment and done version, to get full functionality. It is very difficult to even discover this when you have the software loaded - only when I looked in help did I find the "fine print" telling me my version is intentionally crippled. There are other issues as well, like difficult to read small gray on gray menu items etc. I want my money back.

      rough...

      Excel is terrible - even on a brand new 2016 MBP! keyboard shortcuts have changed/gone away, there's horrible lag when deleting rows or doing any kind of cell e Excel is terrible - even on a brand new 2016 MBP! keyboard shortcuts have changed/gone away, there's horrible lag when deleting rows or doing any kind of cell editing - Excel's giving me the rainbow wheel of death for the first time on this new machine. Weird attempts at smooth cursor movements within Excel make it feel infinitely less precise and snappy. Boo, Microsoft. Going back to Office 2011 til they make it better. Bummed I purchased it.

      Works Flawlessly

      I recently purchased the early 2015 MacBook Air computer. I purchased this Microsoft Office 2016 because for the last 7 years I have used Word and Excel on my M I recently purchased the early 2015 MacBook Air computer. I purchased this Microsoft Office 2016 because for the last 7 years I have used Word and Excel on my MacBook Pro and that is what I am accustomed to using. Before you purchase this item consider the following; 1. Your MacBook may already contain programs called Pages and Numbers that are highly similar to Microsoft Word and Excel. Therefore, you may not need to purchase this Microsoft Office package. If you have these programs in your computer, test them out to verify if they are sufficient for your needs. 2. You can easily view and modify any documents created with Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel in the Pages and Numbers Mac Programs that you have transferred over from another computer. 3. Be AWARE if a document is created in a Pages or Numbers program it CANNOT be viewed in a Microsoft Word or Excel program. In other words you can view a Microsoft Word/Excel document with using a Microsoft Word/Excel or Mac Pages/Numbers Program but you cannot view a Mac Program (Pages or Numbers) in a Microsoft Program (Word or Excel). I purchased this item because I have two computers that I use; one for solely business and the other is for personal and business. My personal and business computer is this MacBook Air and the business computer is a Sony Vaio. Because I could not view or modify any document created with with using Pages or Numbers with my MacBook Air on my Sony Viao I needed to purchase this Microsoft Office so the documents could be compatable and modified on either computer. The upload was easily and took less then 10 minutes. I have been finding no lag from a copy/paste/insert on Excel or Word as the other review had mentioned. Consider though that I have an Air and she documented having a Pro. In my situation, I have removed the Pages and Numbers from my MacBook Air tool bar because I will only ever need to use the Microsoft programs received with this Office package. I am very happy with my purchase. I hope this review has been helpful.

      Don't buy

      I am not sure what is happening between AAPL and MSFT. I have never seen a product for Mac that is so horrible as Excel and Word for Mac. If anyone is trying to I am not sure what is happening between AAPL and MSFT. I have never seen a product for Mac that is so horrible as Excel and Word for Mac. If anyone is trying to switch to mac and plan to use a lot of MS products, hold off! you will do yourself a favor. None of the features work properly and the worst part is that Excel keeps freezing every other hour. It comes with all kinds of weird messages like "cannot be saved". Do you want to know even worse than this? It is not that just Excel freezes, but the entire Macbook freezes :(. I thought I was finally over the torture of having to deal with all the stupid freezing that used to happen frequently in Windows machines. But now they have exported this to Mac as well. Microsoft is the most incompetent company in its size and they are living off of their old glory. But Apple is no better either! After so many years, they still don't have a product that can compete viably with MS. Their Numbers are pathetic. They should have come outright and say that they won't support MS products unless it meets basic standards. Jobs would have done that. Now we have a bean counter at the helm, so I guess that is what we should expect. Best thing to do is to learn Python and Tableau and totally get out of Excel like products from MS. There are so many problems in Excel that I won't have enough space to post it all. But rest assured that It is going to be a nightmare for those who rely heavily on Excel and other MS products for Mac. I have seen many people posting similar sentiments for a while now but nothing has improved. The hubris of these giant tech companies are palpable. Most new products from all these companies are worse than they were a few years ago. There is no innovation and it has only devolved into productivity nightmare for users.

      A Step Backwards

      Office 2016 H&S version has a bit of lag overall compared to previous version (2011 H&S), especially when scrolling to a new page there is a delay before text a Office 2016 H&S version has a bit of lag overall compared to previous version (2011 H&S), especially when scrolling to a new page there is a delay before text appears. I'm using the new program on a one year old MacBook Pro. I've been using Office 2016 H&S for only a few hours and found that the Ribbon can no longer be customized like it could in the previous version... a lost feature. Also, word or excel pages do not always open to the same size as when it was closed, which apparently is a bug that has not been fixed since first introduced in 2016. The new program is about 5 times bigger than previous 2011 version, which likely explains the slight lag. Too bad Office 2011 H&S is not being supported any longer, since it was quicker, compact in size, more customizable, and had no bugs. Seems like a step backwards, but usable.
