Is Pathagoras compatible with Office 2016/365

    Yes, Pathagoras is fully compatible with Office 2016 and its Office 365 cousin.

    There is one caveat. There is a free cloud version of Office 365 that is not fully 'Word'. It is a but a lightweight version the complete suite. It offers only basic word processing tools, but it can be run from any device that can connect to your cloud account.

    However, the cloud version cannot run Pathagoras (or any other add-on). Indeed, it cannot even run the high end functions of Word, such as tracking changes (you can view them, but not add, delete or accept them); you cannot run the thesaurus and cannot enable any macros; you cannot paint formats. Like we said, it it Word-lite.

    The cloud version is great for what it does (and did I mention it is free), but is sorely lacking in many things that we have come to know and depend on as 'Word'.

    If you want to run the full suite of tools that Microsoft makes available (and Pathagoras), you need to be running a full local install of Office.
