Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008

If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.

Microsoft Office 2011 14.30

Microsoft has updated Office 2011 to version 14.30 with a short, but sweetly detailed rundown of fixes in this maintenance release. Most of the changes involve PowerPoint, including fixes for a display issue that affected collapsed sections in Slide Sorter view, an issue with hyperlinks that included hashtags not being saved correctly, a crash that occurred when using the Paste Special option, and an issue that prevented pasting of text from PowerPoint for Windows into PowerPoint for Mac. The update also fixes an issue in Outlook where invitation times from non-Exchange calendar servers were off by an hour, and only during certain times of the year. (Free updates via the Office for Mac Web site or through Microsoft AutoUpdate, 106 MB, release notes)

I'm always wishing the latest updates would be on a visible tag right on the icon.

I have for years wished in vain for Microsoft to update recurrent bugs in MS Word. Some remain from Word 98. But with a captive audience, Microsoft does not seem interested in fixing known bugs that inhibit work flow. No other software is as capable as MS Word for high-end users, or I'd have abandoned it years ago.
