Welcome to Word:mac

You have landed on the home page of the Word for Macintosh section of the Word MVP Site.

If you’re looking for information on issues specific to Word for the Macintosh, you’ve come to the right place.  If you’re struggling with application problems, click on the Troubleshooting link to the left; for tips, techniques and how-to’s, try Using Word:mac.

These pages, devoted to the Macintosh user who wishes to learn how to use or troubleshoot Mac Word, are but a small section of a much larger site containing perhaps the most extensive repository of tips and techniques for Microsoft Word on the web. Keep in mind that Word is Word, so although the articles can access via Word Home were written about Word for Windows, they apply equally to Mac Word in most cases.

Note that this sub-site, like its parent, is owned and operated by MVPs. We are volunteers. We do not work for Microsoft. We work with Microsoft Word. So if you have a complaint for Microsoft, contact them.
