Microsoft Office 2011 14.3.4

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft has updated Office 2011 to version 14.3.4, a maintenance release with a variety of targeted fixes. For Outlook, the update fixes a problem with the discontinued XLIST command for Gmail, a bug that consigned messages from a blocked sender’s account to the Junk Mail folder instead of Sent Items, an issue that prevented messages addressed to local contact groups from being sent, and an issue that neglected to prompt for credentials after a Kerberos token expires. On the PowerPoint front, version 14.3.4 fixes an issue that caused keyboards and remotes to lose control during a slide show and patches a bug that caused PowerPoint 2013 content to be lost when saved in PowerPoint 2011 format.

The release notes also offer the reminder that your Office 2011 license can now be used with the Office 365 cloud subscription service (available since the release of version 14.3.0), which costs $10 a month or $99 annually and enables you to install Office 2011 on up to five Macs. To that end, Office 14.3.4 stamps out a bug where updates from coauthored sessions using the PowerPoint Web App and PowerPoint for Mac came through as conflicts, and fixes an issue that caused an incorrect name to be suggested when saving a Word for Mac document to SkyDrive or SharePoint (one wonders if it was the same “incorrect name” for everyone, and whether it was NSFW). (Free updates via the Office for Mac Web site or through Microsoft AutoUpdate, 113 MB)
