  • Hah. And everybody was blaming Microsoft for all their Office 2016 woes.
  • We still do. They and Windows 8 are what caused me to change platforms to Mac. And I couldn't be happier! Sent from the iMore App
  • Boy I hope this fixes the tremendous typing lag I've had in these programs...
  • I get update cannot be verified when I try installing 10.11.1.
  • Since running the el cap 10.1 beta 1 I have not received any new builds. Not the official one is out I still don't see an update. Any fixes or should I just install a clean version of el cap? Sent from the iMore App
  • Can anyone confirm whether these "improvements" have actually fixed the office 2016 problems? I'm dying to upgrade to El Capitan, but have been holding off until this bug is fixed.
  • Yes I need to know the same. Can't find anything confirming it. I've held off on upgrading. Office for work, so I can have crashing. Sent from the iMore App
