Microsoft has released Office for Mac 2011 14.2.1, a redo of its recently released Service Pack 2 (see “Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 14.2.0,” 12 April 2012) that includes the same improvements and tweaks of that previous version. According to the Office for Mac blog, the 14.2.0 update was pulled because of “issues that affected a small percentage of users.” Many of those issues, centered largely on a variety of problems with Outlook as well as crashes with Word and Excel, are detailed on this forum at MacInTouch. For the time being, we recommend caution in applying this update. (Free update as a download or through Microsoft AutoUpdate, 110 MB, release notes)
Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard
The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

But I've got antecedent confusion: what is the antecedent of "this" in the following sentence? "For the time being, we recommend caution in applying this update." Which update is the caution about, 14.2.0, or 14.2.1?
I did upgrade to 14.2.0, so I'll go ahead & do 14.2.1., but cautiously, as you advise.
Thanks again. I always appreciate you and TidBITS looking out for us!
This work-around "translation," while not 100% ideal, is rather adequate. Links always work, and the only formatting issues I've found that tend to need tweaking are Word Art creations for banners & text boxes.
