Word on Mac can't handle feedback
February 12, 2014 7:43 PM   Subscribe

Mac Word 2011 (most recent version, 14.3.9) running on most recent version of Mavericks on late 2013 15" retina MacBook Pro crashes whenever opening a document that contains comments or change tracking. A complete uninstall and reinstall of Office did not fix the problem. What gives?

Never mind! Found my solution. http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/107282/following-mavericks-upgrade-microsoft-word-closes-silently-right-after-opening suggests that this is a reasonably common problem for Mavericks users, and that disabling the "show comments in balloon" option fixes it.
