MS Office bug?
Authored by: leamanc on May 16, '11 11:31:15AM

I am really unfamiliar with this Office bug, as I have Office 2011 and I'll leave Word and Excel open for weeks at a time, just closing documents as needed, but leaving the apps running.

What would you consider the first version of MS Office for Mac? Office '98? (The apps existed for Mac before that, but I think that's the first time they were bundled as MS Office for Mac.) Or do you mean the first version for OS X, which was MS Office X? In any case, I don't ever remember having that bug with those versions, either. Can anyone confirm that they have seen or heard of this problem?

I encountered this all the time with PowerPoint, but I didn't know that it was a fundamental bug with Office as a whole. I can't begin to tell you how much work I've lost and had to re-do over the years simply because the file wouldn't save.

Oh, and I kept the old Office X going for so long instead of upgrading because I had things set up just the way I needed for QuicKeys automation to create large numbers of slides. Once something like that is set up and works, I don't mess with it unless I have to.

I'm finding that Office 2011 freezes really often, multiple times a day. I'm wondering if this isn't what's causing it.
