Hello Office and Windows Insiders.
Recently, Windows Insider builds 17060 through 17077 were released to a subset of Windows Insiders. These builds contain a bug which prevents Word files from being saved if any add-ins are running. Anybody running a Windows Insider build in this range that run Word add-ins will be impacted by this bug. This impacts all versions of Word, including production builds, as well as both traditional save and auto-save.
The issue has been identified and a fix is being worked on, however we do not have an ETA at this time.
In the meantime, users impacted by this issue have two alternatives as a work around:
- Use the web version of Word
- Uninstall any Word add-ins you have and continue to use Word as normal
[Edited to provide an additional work around and clarify the availability of a fix.]
