    I'm in the U.S. I was curious, and I too found that only demo versions of the individual Office programs were available in the Mac App Store.

    I checked Microsoft's Web site, and Office 2019 stand-alone for home users is now GONE.

    Office 2019 stand-alone for business ($250) is available from:
    Shopping cart - Microsoft Store

    There is NO WAY I'm ever going to be paying that. I'm switching to FreeOffice/Softmaker Office:

    SoftMaker: Official Website

    I already use FreeOffice on one of my MacBook Pros. I can't believe it is free. I'll likely do the $20 upgrade on all of my Macs to Softmaker Office.

    I've done the $20 on my oMac after trying FreeOffice based on a previous mention in the forum (yours I think). It's we;; worth it though I don't remember why I chose the upgrade. FreeOffice pretty much did what I needed.

    I'm mainly using the word processing function but haven't had an issue transferring documents to Office. The only problem I've had is a document printed in landscape mode on legal paper clips off part of the first column when printed even though it looks fine on screen.

    I still show Office 365, Word and Excel, but no Powerpoint. Nothing that I can see states that those apps are demo only. The Mac App Store allows you to use the App for 30 days before charging the subscription price. Is that what you mean?

    When I purchased O365, the App Store gave me 30 days of free use before charging my credit card. I assume that before the 30 days were up, I could cancel out and not have to pay.

    By the way, I did purchase the special priced SoftMaker Office a while back. I was not impressed with the way it displayed and saved my older Word documents and discontinued its use. If I have to re-edit my older Word documents to make them presentable, I may as well use Pages which is free.
