Hey Everyone,

I have all versions of OSX installed, and all versions of Office 2011/2008. I don't run into any issues when testing with these.

Nonetheless, Office 2011 utilizes OS functions for a lot of its processes, so does Office 2008. For a slower system, it may complicate things.

Do you have AV installed on the Mac? AV can cause corruption in the user files. To reduce this, stop scanning the Microsoft User Data Folder.
