I'm using Word for Mac. I finally bit the bullet and subscribed, because that's the only way to get it now. It's like an old friend. I'm fluent after YEARS of use. HOWEVER, Microsoft tries to WEDGE its cloud service into my work-flow and it's confusing and annoying. When I want to choose "Autosave" to protect myself from losing in-process documents, it puts pop-ups telling me I need "Microsoft 360" or whatever, and there are other related foils that confuse me and make me think I can't have a fully functioning Word version, like before, unless I have a Microsoft (MS) account and/or do what Microsoft wants with respect to its cloud service. I would appreciate if MS would lay-off and just provide the software, like before. BEFORE, I could buy it once and get all subsequent updates. Now, in the interest of recurring revenue, I have to "subscribe." "Subscribing" to MS Word was a hurdle I had to get over. I tried everything, but the others aren't nearly as familiar and comfortable to me...

Since the new office preimered

Many months ago you gave users a chance to try a new version of Outlook 365. I noted a few issues and oen did not get fixed. There is a clitch when I use this on Mac. When I being a sentence, the capital letter at the start of the sentence gets jumped ahead of the curser, with auot correct changing the secon letter of the sentence from lower case to capitol and them fixing the spelling of the first word.
This means, every time I begin a paragrpah or senetnce, I have to delete the first letter, which is not at the end of a sentence and go back to the begining of teh sentence and fix the first word.
Please fix this crummy coding.
Also, I am using Zoom, as are many people these days. It asked me if I want to merge with Outlook 365. I clicked yes. It generated an outlook app on my tool bar. Ithis is not a Zoom app, it is your outlook app. Now I get a bell ring and pop-up on my screen every time I have something on my calendar. I have something on my sclendar every 15 to 30 minutes. This is driving me nuts. There is a not setting to get ride of it, control the bell ring or stop the pop-up.
Please go through your systems and fix things before taing them live. You guys =used to be the best at this stuff, now you have wacky flaws without solutions.

Wonderful, especially for dictation, but problems with auto-punction

I'm a writer and am very much impressed with how far Word for Mac has come. I usually use other software to write my books (Scrivener, Drafts) but am now making the switch to writing in Word, specifically because I can access my WIP on any of my devices--iphone, ipad, macbook, imac--without paying for multiple licenses or going through mulitple headaches. The experience from one device to the next has the continuity I've been missing from every other solution I've tried. Syncing isn't an issue at all--thank God it's not dependent on iCloud or Dropbox. And the bonus of all bonuses is the dictation feature, which is superb across all devices. My only complaint is that I cannot turn of auto-punctuation in the dictation settings. Tick the box to turn it off and it magically turns back on. Makes for lots of extra editing. Still, it's great and luckily the issue is only on the desktop app and not on the mobile versions. (A silver lining is that this auto-punctuation bug has gotten me dictating/writing my novels on my phone now, which has made me even more productive.)

5 stars if the auto-punctuation bug is fixed.
