My templates are not opening and I cannot change the content of any of the docs. What can I do?

I downloaded it. Uncompressed it and cannot use it because the file was corrupted. Now I need to figure out how to download it again without purchasing it again...Not happy.

Please use your serial number and information to re-download the application from http://graphicnode.com/delivery/ without purchasing it again.
Make sure that your security settings is set to "Anywhere" and try to expand Bundle for MS Office file by clicking right mouse button on the file and choose Open. Be patient, it will take some time to open the application for the first time, because it takes over 4GB.

I bought the templates but am a little bewildered at the size of the download. Guess should have done some math first: the file is 3.9 GB! And that is a compressed Zip file! This better be good to be hogging that much space...
I cannot put a star rating because I am only downloading now but MUPromo demands a star rating, so I gave it half way (not fair to the product--I haven't even opened it)

Strange, for me it's 4.17 GB in compressed Zip file, at least according to my Safari browser's Downloads menu in the far upper right corner of the browser. Wonder why your GB size is different from mine for the exact same software purchased on the very same day.

The download completed and the file is 4.17 GB. The download mgr on Chrome listed the file being downloaded as 3.9 GB while it was downloading (and writing the above comment), but after completion lists the zip file as larger. Sorry for the confusion. Good catch.

Ok, have unbundled the over 4GB file and opened my copy of Word for Mac 2011. When I go to templates, I expected to be overwhelmed by the over 700 new templates that this package included. Instead I got the 165 templates that MS Word came with. The seller's website lacks any documentation at all, so I thought , "Well it should be intuitive and be located under File/Templates.." But it is not. Where are my templates???

It took a long time for the Bundle to open up after I installed it. Maybe the extremely slowing opening up had something to do with the large size of the Bundle file. It should be faster next time because I've since defragmented my computer memory in order to improve on speed.

I eventually also opened up a blank MS Word document, and then suddenly a separate Bundle window opened up as well, with its own menu bar. I don't know if the Bundle window suddenly appeared because it was waiting for me to open a blank MS Word document first. It's not within MS Word, rather, the Bundle window is separate, outside of MS Word.

After the Bundle window is open, you select a template inside the Bundle window by clicking on it, and it immediately appears in your previously blank MS Word document.

It was my impression that all the templates were new. I hadn't seen them before, none of them were in my previous collection of templates that appears inside MS Word itself.

I wrote to the developer after contacting him through the developer's website and he responded with instructions on how to get the package going. Kudos to him for that, but there should be something on the website about it. It is a separate program that is run and must be opened independently of Word. The program when I first opened it crashed but the second time opened slowly. Once opened, however, the actual templates loked pretty good. I wouldn't pay more than $20 for it though. Maybe that's just my cost benefit number. Now that I have the program running, I will give it the two and a half stars that I originally gave it. Thanks DovTodd for the heads-up on starting to figure this out.

I clicked the Mac App Store link to see the reviews. It appears that people aren't very happy with it.

I'd buy it and judge it in the $19,99 app category.

Me too.

I'm wondering if the reviewers actually know how to use templates in MS Office. I also wonder if they thought that they were getting the MS Office software too.

Very Bizarre

The bad reviews on the App Store are primarily because people do not realize that they bought a set of templates FOR Office. From their comments, it looks like they were expecting the program to include or run like Office.

I would rather put the $40 towards iWork (Pages, Numbers and Keynote) as a more practical, productive and integrated bundle - you can do far more with iWork than with MS Office, and the end products are more attractive, better integrated and more flexible than Office.

"...you can do far more with iWork than with MS Office..."
I wish it were so. But I *have* to use MS Office because iWork simply lacks many features that Office has.

I've got to agree. iWork is a good solid program suite but it doesn't have anywhere close to the features and depth of Office Mac. Comparing the two is almost silly. iWork is certainly better integrated into the OS and has companion mobile apps which is a huge advantage but Office is better integrated into the world and is the standard by which nearly everyone shares stuff (except for pdf format). I also happen to like the interface, at least on the Mac. The old adage of "you get what you pay for" really applies to Mac office suites.

Well, I have the latest versions of both iWork and MS Office for Mac. I use both, and I like both! I bought this Bundle as part of MacUpdate Promo for $19.99. iWork is clearly simpler and easier to use, yet I use MS Office often as well and can do things with MS Office that I can't do with iWork (better granular control), and as a result I'm very much ok with MS Office as well. Can't take sides here, am very much a supporter of both for different reasons! I've bought template bundles for both to give me ideas on how to make even better use of both iWork and MS Office.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
