    MS Office X seems to be the only thing that ever crashes on my iBook so I was wondering if anybody knew or had heard when a new version of Office might be released for Mac. Hopefully some time soon.

    OFFICE CRASHING!

    Office is the only thing that crashes on my mac, any ideas?

    It seems to be when I change the layout or go into things like dictionary or thesaurus, things that i haven't used much before..


    I heard about a preferences file that might need to be deleted.

    Plus, anyone know of a decent icon for office that i can stick on my dock .. i have word, excel and powerpoint icons all on my dock! I only want one for office and the office folder looks ugly!

    Cheers

    How about the "welcome" icon that appears in the MS Office folder when you install. Would that do the trick?

    I had this problem on a friends computer, I couldn't for the life of me figure it out until i noticed two things. Either one could have been the culprit.

    - HE hadn't deleted his trial copy yet.
    - he was using the the same serial # on his laptop as on his desktop. ( i think he was allowed 3 serials but hadn't bothered)

    this fixed the issues up. though i had to do a complete delete - reboot install. OH i also did a permissions check for good measure.

    best of luck

    be sure to update your office to version 1.5!

    (in my experience it almost never crashes and is a hell of a lot faster than any previous version. i think they have somehow managed to get it right.)
