I just upgraded to Office 2016 on my Mac. Oops. I have a couple of big Word documents (> 100 pages) that represent my field notes. Editing these documents is now painful. Both were easy to edit with Word 2011. The scroll is jerky, characters show up well after I type them, etc... Are there features I can disable to improve performance?
