    1. Prior to installing Office 2011, I ran Font Book. No conflicts were noted. All fonts were validated.
    2. I then installed Office 2011 and all Office updaters.
    3. I then checked Font Book again and discovered about 12-15 “cautions”. So I clicked on the Resolve button.
    4. Then I started having a myriad of keyboard issues. Clearly, I messed things up when I tried to clear-up the cautions noted in Step 3 above.

    So I then reverted to a backup volume that did not contain Office 2011, and all is again as it should be.

    I would like to reinstall Office 2011 on my Lion volume, but before doing so, would appreciate your thoughts as to what I should do this time to avoid my earlier issues. :confused:

    To close/update this thread-

    My solution was not a fix per-se, but rather a workaround:

    When reinstalling Office 2011, I went the Custom Install route, thus forgoing Messenger, Remote Desktop, Visual Basic, Proofing Tools (except English), MS Document Connection, and Office Fonts.

    So far, no keyboard issues and no alerts in Font Book. I remain hopeful that the remaining 231 fonts will suffice. If not, I can custom install the MSO 2011 fonts later.

    FWIW, I have never specifically added fonts, e.g., all are a result from OS & app installs.

    For now, at least, all is well.
