  1. Office apps Android won't start after June 28th 2017 update

    OneNote, Word, Excel and PowerPoint won't start on my phone: when I tap an icon, splash screen shows up and disappears swiftly, no error messages whatsoever. This begin to happen around June 28th, after another update from Google Play.
    I tried to reinstall and clear cache of all of the apps together and one by one, rebooting my device, switching off/on data and Wi-Fi, nothing changes. I'm using BlackBerry KEYone (model BBB100-1, build AAL619) running Android 7.1.1, English locale.

    • Improve SVG Support

      Office recently added support for importing SVG files. However, there are elements that are still not fully supported. Style settings like font-size on the text tag are being ignored. When height and width are not specified in the svg tag, the correct height and width are not being detected correctly. Also, alignment of some items appear to be off.

      Please fix these issues.

      • Please add editing capability for auto-captions in Stream

        I am very eager to recommend Stream to higher ed collagues. First, we need to be able to edit the auto captions. While the first time accuracy rate is good, for teaching purposes the captions need to be editable so needed corrections can be made for learners who may need this accommodation.

          • Fix the broken search for text in hyperlinks in Outlook messages.

            Fix the broken search for text in hyperlinks in Outlook messages.
            I am using Outlook 2013 on Windows 10.
            When I search for messages containing a word that is the visible text within a hyperlink, it is not found and the search will not terminate.
            Sample link:
            <a href="https://www.somebank.com/lookup/?&quot;
            title="some text"
            style='-webkit-text-size-adjust: none;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;
            -moz-text-size-adjust: 100%'><span style='color:#464644'>WORD-TO-SEARCH-FOR</span>
            </a>

            Searching for WORD-TO-SEARCH-FOR will trigger the described behavior.

                    • Don't discontinue Office Products that are in use in MSDN

                      I have an MSDN Enterprise subscription. I installed Office Professional Plus 2016, Visio, and Project back in June of 2016. This last weekend (May 29, 2017), I suddenly started getting messages saying that Office was not activated.

                      After spending 3 hours with a support person (a supervisor who was knowledgeable), he was unable to resolve my problem. He kept saying I would not have to uninstall and reinstall Office. I then opened an MSDN support ticket and was again told that I would not have to uninstall and reinstall Office. I had already shown each of them the screen in…

                              On July 4th, I chatted with a CS Rep and was NOT provided proper billing information. When I changed my annual billing on my Office subscription to a monthly billing cycle, I was told that the billing would BEGIN on Sept 19th; HOWEVER, I was billed on July 5th for some unknown reason, with my NEXT billing on Sept 19th. I contacted CS via the CHAT option today and was NOT provided an adequate answer, only that it happened. Well, I knew it happened, hence why I was contacting MS. My complaint was and still is that the CS rep…

                                  I ran across something in a document that I couldn't interpret. I felt certain it must not have been grammar checked. I ran and re-ran grammar check, but it wouldn't catch what I couldn't interpret. I simplified the sentence the this: "The cat ran away, which every if the dog for this car and the house." I then created a new document with just that sentence and ran grammar check. "You're good to go!" it happily exclaimed. I am not good to go with that sentence. Would someone either break down the structure of the sentence so I can understand…

                                  • Keep a document autorecover history for a few days. Event if user selects "I don't need the files"

                                    If your Word, Powerpoint ,etc crashes, the auto recover feature is wonderful. BUT, you have only "one shot". If you misclick and select "I don't need the file anymore" you lost the files. If you were writing something important and your computer crashes, chances are you're nervous the next time you open Word, Powerpoint, etc and it's easy to misclick.

                                    If the user selects this option, the autorecovery panel won't automatically show, but Office will keep a history, maybe in a Trash bin fashion, that will get deleted automatically. User will have an option to view all this "discarded autorecovery…

                                      • custom schemas for Mac users

                                        I am very very disappointed to find that the Mac version of office 365 is not as robust as the PC version. I should not be handicapped bc of my operating system, and frankly if you are going to charge me the same price, it should have the same features. I think it is unethical for you to not explain in detail what features are not available.

                                        I had plans to present on using excel to export custom XML files only to find that feature isn't on the mac version. As a developer that is a tool I used often…
