I had been an Office 2008 user. When Office 2016 came out I subscribed, deleted Office 2008 and installed Office 2016. But Excel in Office 2016 is very buggy!
- When editing text in a cell, the blinking vertical cursor input point is different from where text actually gets input, which makes editing difficult.
- When trying to format an entire column to “wrap text” it doesn’t work.
- When in a cell in one spreadsheet, if I use CMD-tab to switch apps and then CMD-tab to switch back I end up in a completely different spreadsheet in a different cell! This makes copy/pasting from another app very error-prone and time consuming.
- Large spreadsheets open up slowly.
So with Support’s help I installed Office 2011 side-by-side. I’ve never used Office 2011 before.
All the above-mentioned bugs don’t occur in Office 2011 (they didn’t in Office 2008 either).
Anyway, since both versions are installed and Office 2016 should get automatic updates I can check periodically to see if the new bugs introduced in Office 2016 are fixed.
But I have to admit I’m wondering why I upgraded at all at this point. The 1 TB OneDrive was one attraction, but the limitations (10 GB files so I can’t backup Parallels VMs, inability to sync certain folder hierarchies because OneDrive thinks there are strange characters in folder names) made that fairly useless to me as well.
