Working fine here as well, so far. It might help if you tell us what trouble you're having, if any.

Working great.

If any of you are having trouble, especially on an older machine, do a clean install of Mavericks. Save your data, wipe boot drive, install Mavericks, migrate your data back.

Also, to save time, after you install Office 2011, here is the latest update file, Link.

Working fine for me. But I just got Pages to try using it instead of Word for a while.

Word and Excel don't seem any slower than Pages and Numbers. I haven't used Powerpoint or Keynote yet, other than to verify that they open.

I got some strange issues.

I want to open a word/excel file from a server using finder, but it says can't find application. But when I opened word/excel first then open the files from there, it worked.
(added afterwards) *I have no problem opening a file from my own drive.

My powerpoint files opened are stuck way up so the powerpoint toolbar is hidden up in the mac topmost toolbar. Can't move the windows around because the dragging area is way up there.

Word isn't working

I just got a new iMac and migrated everything from my Macbook except MS Office for Mac 2011. I used the product key to download it from MS. Both Excel and Powerpoint seem to be working, but when I tried to work on my Word docs, I got a message saying "This command is not available because the document is locked for edit", which of course, I didn't do. None of the Word features are working, it's basically read-only.

I searched in Word's Help to Activate Product, but nothing came up, I also looked for the Office Activation Wizard, which also didn't seem to be there.

Any thoughts on how I can get Word to work? Yes, I am using OSX 10.9.

And how about Office 2008? (I haven't updated to Mavericks yet and am trying to identify what other software I'll need to update)

(yeah, I know 2008 is now ancient, but hey, it's done what I needed)

I have only Outlook 2011, and it's working fine. The rest of my suite is 2008, and all of those programs are working fine.

2011 is all working fine for me, although there are a couple of updates...OP, if you have the autoupdated turned off, try running it to check you have them.

No problems here.

I did have to re-enter the product key on my wife's machine, but that was a clean install. My rMBP was just an in-place upgrade, and no issues.

Are there any rumors of Office 2014? Since the previous version was 2008, that would be the same interval.

Just noticed that the up/down arrows are missing in Outlook 2011's message list and in Word 2008.

I'm not imagining that there used to be arrows, right?

Try this fix for windows moving

System Preferences > Displays > Resolution: select "scaled," then back to "best for display."

Office 2008 works. Entourage has a minor issue where it opens in a new compose window when opened.

Just like with Office 2011, some users are having no issues where other are having minor issues and a few users are having major issues.

For anyone having an issue, you should test in a new User to see if the problem is in your User's folder or at the base level. If the applications don't open in the new User, then you need to look at your Mavericks install and possibly re-install Office. If the problem is in your User's folder it is more difficult to track down. Often it takes starting over in a new Identity for Entourage/Outlook or deleting .plist and cache files.

Everyone needs to run Font Book and delete duplicate fonts. Remove font caches afterwards. Font Nuke is excellent for this.

They're also missing from Chrome, Safari and other programs. Has that happened to anyone else? I don't see any settings for them in System Preferences.
