I've had multiple crashes in word 2011. It is unusable.

CTRL + H will bring up the Find & Replace window and the tab will be set to Replace. If you want just click on Find tab.

I don't know what they changed it, but hey, oh well.

Thanks CubaMark for that explanation. I have a boxed 2011 version of Office for Business and Home and I am just going to sell it instead and try to use the ones in the Mac then, for I dont use it enough and saving in .doc is all that i do anyhow so I dont see a need for it on my computer than


I have the office before 2011 on my Mac and I havent ever had a problem with it, but then, i rarely use it

Are you sure we're talking about the same software? Control + H does absolutely nothing on my machine.

CTRL-H is most definitely not mapped to Advanced Find & Replace in MS-Word 2011, or any other command for that matter. It's possible that Joker Eh is confusing the Windows version, or s/he has (via a 3rd-party utility?) mapped that keystroke and forgot about it.

For those wondering "is it just me?" or if Word 2011 bugs are common, here's a list of known Word 2011 issues, direct from Microsoft.

But those will all be sorted out, whichever ones still exist on updates------just as i get bugs on my iPhone and get updates to fix it.

I wish all software were perfect out of the box but I havent ever found it so

I cant help but get the feeling reading this thread that any software by MS would be challenged beyond the norm ;-)

Well... we're not talking about a version 1.0 product. This is Microsoft's premiere software suite, now at version 14. You'd think they could keep something as simple as Find & Replace working in the transition from v. 13.

And... when I pay that much money for software, I'd like it to do the job it promises to do, not leave me hanging until the next bug fix comes out...

BTW, wouldn't it be nice if MS were to unbundle the suite's various applications, like Apple has done with iWork? I have only a marginal need for Excel. Powerpoint? Nope - Keynote for me. And Entourage or Outlook or Communicator or whatever the heck that email thingy is? No need at all....

Yeah sorry. Opps. Try Command + H then. I have only had my mac for 6 months, still getting used to the Command button.
