    Terrible Upgrade-Key Features Missing-Don't Buy

    I'd go zero stars if that were possible. This "upgrade" is a terrible downgrade. Some of this review will make sense only to more advanced users. But even for the most basic users, the Paste command does not work like you'd expect it to and as it's worked in every other version. By default it pastes values instead of formulas; you have to do a paste special and select all to get it to paste they way you'd do it in any other version. Ridiculous! For somewhat more advanced users: You cannot adjust the Quick Access Toolbar at all. The only way to achieve the same result is to program some macros in Visual Basic and assign them to shortcut keys or buttons. And the Visual Basic support, though now available (it wasn't originally), is terrible. There is no object browser, no help, no Visual Basic programming reference, no basic editing tools, no tools for navigating among subs and functions within a module. In other words, they have dumped very basic functionality available in every other version, including 2011 for Mac (even though that's a pale shadow of the Windows version). I better stop there before my head explodes.

    Not easy to set up

    Pros: -It comes with Office, PowerPoint, Outlook, Excel, OneNote -None of the above have crashed while using them; they're pretty stable Cons: -They removed the Audio Record feature from Word which sucks! I used it on the old Office Suite in class to record lectures and it worked wonderfully because I could record and take notes all in one place at the same time. Now I have to use an external recorder. -Actually setting it up was a pain in the neck. I entered the product key and it didn't work. I had to call 2 different numbers (first one was outsourced to India and the lady couldn't understand the problem so she gave me another number to call during business hours) and wait until business hours to get someone on the phone to help me. Between trying to install it myself, calling Best Buy, calling Microsoft, and trying to get help through their Chat feature until business hours resumed, the whole process took about 4 hours just to install. TIP: If you buy it in store, have Best Buy staff help you install it. That way you don't have to deal with a runaround between Microsoft telling you your product key is invalid and Best Buy telling you the issue is with Microsoft! NOTE: I would only recommend if you are used to Microsoft Word and use it primarily for school papers.

    My fault?

    microsoft word works great, but I had a problem installing it. I put in the website and some choices came up on the screen. I clicked on the first one. I was having trouble, and a woman's face popped up on the screen asking "need help?" While I was waiting for her response to my questions, I called the phone number given on the screen. I was talking to a man with an Indian accent. He asked me to click on something to give him access to my computer, which I had just purchased. I hung up, closed my computer and went right up to Best Buy. I wanted my money back. They said I could not have a refund because I had already scratched off the access code. They told me the website on the screen was the wrong one. They installed Microsoft for me, and reassured me that my computer was fine. I don't know how I was supposed to know which choice to click on, so be very careful when installing Microsoft software. It looked real.

    Downloaded suite installs, but some odd issues

    I need Excel and Word, and while all the programs installed perfectly fine, there are some odd issues I've encountered using them on a Mac. For example, I cannot just copy and paste RTF info from say a web browser into Word as I'd do on a PC--it made me convert or redo all the tedious copy and paste stuff as in formatted text. Then, it's disappointing to find that the normal advanced printer options from the menu do not include options to reduce the ink and so on. It's been frustrating at times to use the Microsoft suite of programs on the Mac, as an example would be the issues with PC created documents being read only access. I do think the Mac programs of "Pages" and "Numbers" have their own positives, but the majority of people use MS Word and Excel, hence the need for this. I'm scratching my head sometimes at some of these incompatibilities, but there's nothing one can do about it. I have to recommend this product because it's necessary.

    Meets Expectations

    I bought this item for my new Macbook that I will be using for graduate school. I've always worked on the Microsoft Office Suite for Windows, but now that I have a Mac, I needed to switch over. I really appreciated that I could work with the same programs as with Windows, since I was already trying to adapt to an entirely new OS. It's a little bit different as far as format and layout, so it took a little adjusting, but overall, it works just as well as the Windows version and it does everything I want it to, from Excel to Word to OneNote. I haven't had to use PowerPoint yet, but I'm sure that one is just as good as well. All of the functionalities are available that are necessary for taking extensive notes, compiling and presenting data, and for creating a wide variety of word documents for school. There is nothing earth shattering about it, but it does what I want and need it to do and that's all I wanted out of it.

    Great product- confusing to download

    I teach school and needed this product for my newly purchased MacBook. I am pretty tech savvy & never had an issue downloading new software on my previous MacBook. However, the software number to download stated it was a previously used number. I called Microsoft customer service. I talked to one representative that insisted on calling me back (using an unknown number). Things seemed fishy- they (more than one “representative” talked me into logging onto my new computer - then told me I had a virus on my network- wanting me to purchase a virus package. Then they kept saying they were downloading my previously purchased software from Best Buy. It all seemed very unprofessional and made me feel uncertain who I was really talking to. I cancelled my credit card that night. I am still not sure if I truly have a virus on my brand new computer. Be careful!

    Office for PC

    Well my parents ended up buying a new iMac after one of their last hp pc took a wonderful dump. My Step dad recalls saying HP means Help Please. LOL So they ended up getting the wrong software because the kid wasn't paying attention to what type of software he was handling or scanning for that fact at the time of check out. Long story short we had to wait for the bad weather to clear to take the wrong software back and get the right one. I guess its the customer fault for not paying attention to what they ask for or what they are getting these days. Thank god customer service step up and did the right thing. We exchange the software and got the right one to install. Thank you customer service lady at the front desk and the supervisor the other young lady at the store. Made my parents and my day. PS. The software for Mac is a grey card by the way,( not the orange one) it also says Mac on the grey card up in the right hand corner. hint

    Better but still not Great

    I bought Office for Mac, not liking the Numbers and Pages programs offered on my MacBook Air. Word and Excel are certainly an upgrade. But they don't come close to the same programs on a Windows computer. Word uses multiple dictionaries in the same document, meaning the simplest words get underlined in red because it is looking in an Italian or Portuguese dictionary. How in the world does that happen--even though the program says my only assigned dictionary is English (US)? Formatting in Excel for Mac is much easier than using Numbers, but still not as easy as Excel for Windows--more of the same issues that I found with Word--where small things aren't smoothed out for Mac users.
