Spell check in Spanish does not work properly. There are problems with accents. Do correct it.

        Bug not fixed. Spanish spell checker still NOT working. I've done all the possible language preference interventions and still does not recognize Spanish.

        Wh have been waiting 1 year for this fix but you do not pay attention to our needs. A draw table icon that was included under insert tab in PWP 2011 is now missing, fonts in PWP 2016 need to be smoothed, import individual slides from a presentation is not posible...

        You suggest us our voting to get the features but YOU DO NOT PAY ATTENTION to our needs. Instead you include stupid features such as complements, shop, etc. Come on Microsoft BE SERIOUS a present a decent app.

        Esta gente pasa de nosotros de mala manera. La versión 15.24 sigue con el mismo error de programación y el corrector ortográfico NO FUNCIONA. Lo que queda claro es que esta versión de Office Mac es incompleta, llena de fallos y errores.

        Lo que queda claro es que a Microsoft, con esta versión, le ha movido más el tema del dinero que el presentar un producto completo, acabado y de calidad. Todo lo contrario de lo ocurrido con el Office 2011, mucho mejor programa que éste.

        Con haber mantenido las herramientas que contenía y haber optimizado su funcionamiento, hubiera bastado. Microsoft ha actuado muy torpemente con este producto y debería DEPURAR RESPONSABILIDADES. Es un auténtico FRACASO, en todos los sentidos.

        PowerPoint 2016 for Mac spell checker identifies accented words as two words before and after accented character!

        PowerPoint 2016 15.21.1.160411 for Mac does not perform "Tools - Spelling" correctly when accented words are involved.

        In such a case (for instance, for Spanish language), PowerPoint splits such word in two parts (identifies it as two different words!): the first one without accent, and the second one starting with the accented character.

        How to fix it? Or is this a PowerPoint 2016 for Mac bug?

        Desde el me de octubre, estamos pidiendo que se arregle este garrafal error de programación y los desarrolladores del programa NO LO ARREGLAN. Mientras tanto, se dedican a añadir en PowerPoint on-line herramientas tan importantes como Skype, para que hables con un amigo mientras haces una transparencia.

        ES UNA VERGÜENZA que un tema tan importante para los usuarios siga sin arreglarse casi 6 meses después. YA ESTÁ BIEN con Microsoft.

        A ver cuándo la gente de Microsoft se digna en arreglar esta herramienta. No hay derecho que con el dineral que cuesta este programita, los desarrolladores y diseñadores del programa nos lo venden incompleto y lleno de fallos.

        Office 2011 era mucho mejor. ¿Era tan difícil haber conservado las mismas herramientas?

        Sres de MST, como decía D'Ors "los experimentos, con gaseosa", por favor.

        Arreglen todos los problemas que estamos teniendo con Office Mac 2016. Incluso los programas tardan más en abrirse que en Office 2011 y eso que tengo 8 gb de RAM y SSD de 500 gb.

        We have been waiting almost 6 months to fix this problem with spelling in Spanish and you HAVE DONE NOTHING TO SOLVE IT. BE SENSITIVE to Spanish speaking users.

        Words finishing in "ón" are not recognized by PwP. Please correct it. It is very important for Spanish-speaking users.

        Under PowerPoint 15.17 spell check in Spanish DOES NOT WORK. Problems STILL persist. When are you going to consider our REAL NEEDS instead of your preferences? Please change this. It is VERY IMPORTANT
