If someone does not know, another email address for Microsoft. Deal breaker for me. I don`t want to go to my PC one morning to find out that Office is no longer working, because a brilliant update, which was pushed on my machine, without my knowledge or my ability to control it; or that the user interface has suddenly changed to meet the cool idea of a Redmond genius about how I should use the product — the “service.” What`s funny is that I haven`t installed any MS “services” on my Mac. But I have a “product.” Except that it is a piece of software to soon reach EOL (read more, in an instant). And while I have Windows 7 in my PC, it`s now an outdated system as far as MS is concerned. I don`t subscribe to the agreement proposed by MS to extend the lifespan and I don`t even fix it with 0day support micropatches. I isolated it from the Internet and for communication between it and the rest of the world, I use the Linux operating system now on pc co-installed with Win 7. I use Win 7 to run older application software and occasionally older files that I still have to work with. In the meantime, you can read what`s new in the upcoming service agreement on Microsoft`s official website. I have MS Office 16 on Mac, but it`s installed in the computer and in everything that matters is mine, as in “I own it,” not as in “I graciously provided it as a service for simple mortals like me by MS.” So I have “Office,” but as nothing I don`t have access to “365.” The completely modified agreement, which is related to the beginning of the MS article, itself bound at the top of me, generally does not list “Office” among “services,” but only “Office 365” and “Office 365” according to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.
You can do this by “printing” in PDF. In fact, you can convert everything into PDF like this one. Maybe the text is memorized in pictures, but still does the work for me. Bullzip PDF can also merge multiple files into a PDF format. PDF printing is a very useful tool for me. Not with the MSFT standard, cause its malfunctions.

And the 3 days of reading the “agreements” give me something I can focus on when I retire. Regarding the use of LibreOffice, I have this problem: most places where I make my presentations need PDF files or TPP for slides. In machines where LibeOffice works well, no problem.
But I cannot know for sure during a presentation at a conference. On the other hand, PDF files are accepted in many conferences and meetings – if not all – so that one solution would be to convert a FreeOffice file into a PDF, which more or less corresponds to a PPT file, so that the slides are similar. But how do you convert these FreeOffice files into PDFs? With PowerPoint, you can do this directly with the “Record in PDF” option.
