Publisher view for Mac Office 365 on Word
I think it would be great if publisher view was made available to the Mac office 365. I feel that it was a very useful feature and it is a shame that it is no longer available.
This was the SINGLE feature that caused Word to finally stand apart from other basic word processing software. Now there are very few true ways to meaningfully manipulate the layout of a document or modify templates to suit one's needs. This is precisely why so many people choose to invest in Adobe products. Even those with very basic needs have few other options if they want something to appear modern and professional.
Losing Word Publisher View was a real blow, just another reason not to upgrade... I avoid upgrading/updating at all costs because of the learning curve since somebody out there thinks redesigning the interface each time is a good idea (it isn't). But if I have to convert all my Publisher documents it will make this just about the worst upgrade of all time. Please bring Publisher View back to Word in Office 365 ASAP to avoid losing yet another customer.

I truly don't like Office 365 with out the pulblisher choice on it. I use that particular program all the time for what we do in our offices. I upgraded from Office 2011 to this one last week thinking it had for my MAC..... was very disappointed. Looking to return this product and re-install my 2011 version even thought there is no support. If you ever decide to add it back to the mix let me know. I will not be recommending Office 365 to any of my MAC user until this is done.

We have faculty that have used the Publisher version on older MacBook Pros that has Office 2011, now that they're upgrading to Office 2016 there are a number of professors missing the "publishing layout view". Any chance this is coming back in the next version of Office for Mac?
I hate that publisher is no longer available It makes me think that when my subscription is up, I might finally abandon Microsoft like everyone else. I now have to go and buy another program to make my concert programs because I just can't do what I was able to do with Microsoft publisher.
Not having publisher layout in Word is incredibly frustrating. That combined with the difficulty with Outlook I have experienced make me think about giving up on Office all together. Please bring publisher view/layout back!
Wow! I️ finally found something that worked great and now it is gone. What a wonderful tool it was. I️ switched from a pc to iMac and I️ am missing ms publisher. This word publisher really helped a lot. Please bring it back!!
