Release notes On December 11, 2017, we released Version 16. The first and most common solution is to run Microsoft AutoUpdate from within Office 2016 for Mac. I have tried net new installations and imports of 2011 identities clean or otherwise. All my apps but Office launch and run well. Maybe you can try to use Windows 10 for Office 2016, just a personal suggestion. I have not tried other Office apps.
A troubleshooting step to take is to boot to Safe Mode and immediately open Word to a new, blank document and start typing. At some point the spinning wheel set in and I was completely unable to even close any of the three documents, or to close any other programs that were open. I'm running into similar issues, Shit I don't have time for this. This prevents my Outlook client from connecting properly. However, in in Office 2016 they are no longer in the Documents folder but in the in your User Library folder which is hidden by default.

But once they have a Word or Excel file open, they open other ones just fine, its jut the initial opening the programs that's slow. This is rather a general advice to get a more sure and performant working environment. There are obviously big printing issues with this update. Microsoft probably had nothing to do with this issue for once. Anything to do about it? Click the X icon to stop a process. Definitely problems with display and printing.
It seems as though I type too fast for word to handle so there is a bit of a delay in the time the text appears on the screen, from several tests my typing speed appears to be 140wpm. Thank you Dave for you quick answer, I appreciate that you confirm that I don't have isolated issues. I upgraded to Office 2016 and I have to say Word is super slow when it comes to typing. Not the best but better. And I have been for the last 4 years. Therefore, I'll try to install Office 2011 for Mac and see if this will work 'flawlessly'.
I started using Office 2016 recently on my MacBook Pro running Yosemite, and Word can sometimes be very very slow while typing. If it does Deleting the Font cache and restarting Computer to Rebuild then might speed up things. I was forced to resort to kill shutdown, and to restart the computer. These past 2 or 3 weeks though, Outlook has been hogging a lot of my resources and I am not sure why it is doing it all of a sudden? Now you have so much temp word garbage that your disk gets hung at 100 percent because all your memory has been hijacked. Currently, I suggest you can follow the article below to revert to Office 2016 for Mac 15. Also uninstall any other Office applications you have. The Word version on my Mac is Word 16.
One of my test case was switching off all internet connection, and it starts up fine. For those who say just use Apple Pages, I agree. There are a variety of problems and issues in Office 2016 For Mac that mean Word 2016 keeps crashing, some with error messages and others that just display the spinning beach ball of death and require you to Force Quit. Still, Excel or Word or Powerpoint all wait for 2 minutes to start up. Now everything works fine without any problems. However, when Word re-launched itself it did the same thing, freezing the computer. There are obviously big printing issues with this update.
The past few days it has not frozen once and has been very stable. I opened Word first and it took 18s. I also have major problems with Word, starting last week immediately after the autoupdate on Office365. This can be frustrating as it is not instant like it was on 2010. That's not fixing the problem its exacerbating it. Well, I'm glad the downgrade worked for you. Then the pdf is created but with flaws including imprecise type appearance and odd 'borders' around images.
I run all the games you can imagine, no huhu, and top settings. Same for excel but I have to use it. If this worked for you, please post which program was the culprit. The problem arises when it becomes too slow, and you spend more time for the app to respond than actually working on it. The Word program started to generate the following error messages last week after the auto-update last week, when trying to access any Word document: - Undo edit button not found - Insert citation button not found - Combo box not found I have been working on a major document and updating it on a daily basis. Excel 2016 for Mac Outlook 2016 for Mac PowerPoint 2016 for Mac Word 2016 for Mac OneNote for Mac This article contains a compilation of the top changes in the latest Insider Slow build for Office 2016 for Mac.
But since everything else in the suite is working very badly, I assume this is surely related to the update to 16. This is a known that Microsoft are aware of but it remains to be seen whether it will be fixed in the final release. Please make sure you have installed the latest Windows updates for your Windows 8. Last Updated: March 12, 2019 Important Update: has now been released. Yet, it looked normal in Apple Preview. Can break work flow to click on a file from an email attachment, and then have it take 3000 years to open. I am totally stubbed on what to do here.
