    I have been using Yosemite Betas since release and have been using Word for Mac 2011 on it, no problem. Since PB2 it has started to crash.

    It only crashes when I try to open a docx which has review comments/track changes on it. This was not the case with PB1. :(

    I did report it:apple:, but anyone else with the problem or with suggestions?

    Thanks.

    P.s. my Word is updated to the latest version.

    It was working good for me until I updated to DP6.

    PB2 and DP6 are pretty much the same thing (except the DP has a few more features like Continuity).

    I personally think since word is third party app, you also contact microsoft to make it pore optimised for yosemite.

    Microsoft recently released ver. 14.4.4 in the last few days. I'm having no issues with Office.

    The crash only manifests when there are comments or/and tracked changes to the doc.

    I'm on 14.4.4. :confused:

    I'll check that out. I don't normally use outlook.

    It's working fine here.

    Only thing is - now mine isn't working anymore, even not after a re-re-install...
