    I am running an iMac 27" and recently updated to OS X Yosemite.

    Problem: Word will only read documents. I can save new docs but then can't edit or close them. Opening existing docs is the same and I can't get access to 'Permissions' tag. All other apps in the suite (Excel etc) are working perfectly.

    Could this be because I have just upgraded to Yosemite??
    Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks

    Does the user profile you're logged into have Admin privileges?

    The important update is Office 2011.
    Check your Word app version. Should be version 14.4.5
    If it is not, you can update your Office software. Open one of the other apps, such as Excel, then Help menu, and Check for Updates. That will update all of the Office apps through the same updater. Not sure if it will fix your Word problem yet, but it's a good start.
