App is good...but same issues

I like the ap version of the Office suite.
It's so much better having the app store handle the updates than the Microsoft updater popping up every 2 microseconds asking to check for updates however the exact same issues I had with the dmg version I'm also having with the App version in that each time I open one of the Microsoft apps, my whole Mac just just hangs for several seconds.
What gives? It's incredibly frustrating.

Love the Draw feature

I've been waiting for a draw feature to come to Mac and I'm surprised to see how well-integrated it has turned out. If you have the old version of Word for Mac downloaded through a browser, this version seems much more stable and is definitely worth the download. For digitally signing documents, I'd choose this over Acrobat and Preview in a heartbeat. I have only two suggestions - it should be easier to undo a stroke when using the 'Draw with Trackpad' feature (so that you don't have to reopen the feature every time you make a mistake), and if there were more options for pen sizes (like a continuous scale instead of discrete sizes). Otherwise, brilliant.

for the past one and a half month Word crashed at an average 2-4 times an hour.

At the end of March 2019 I started an assessment. Word has crashed numerous times a day. At times it froze. I am completely exasperated because I can not do more than a half an hour work in an average six (six) hours sitting.
I Used CleanMyMac to uninstall Word. After uninstalling it, I went to the official website to download a fresh version. The site sent me here, to the app store (I use an iMac, and a MacBook Air). It is here that I found this "Write a Review" invitation. This is the first time in my life I am writing a review, and am sorry to say that I feel sad I have to vent my nearly one and a half months.
I am now at a loss, because I am here at the App store, yet instead of being able to download the app, the button says "OPEN". This signifies that the system senses there is an application somewhere. I did a thorough research and there is no trace.

I have no idea what to do next@

I have uninstalled the app, now I don't have an opportunity to download a fresh one.
