Microsoft has released the Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 14.5.6 update. In addition to the application improvements that are mentioned in this article, Office for Mac 2011 is now available as a subscription offering. For more information about subscriptions, see Frequently Asked Questions. This update has prerequisites.
PrerequisitesBefore you install the Office for Mac 2011 14.5.6 update, make sure that you have Office for Mac 2011 14.1.0 or a later version installed on your computer. Also, make sure that the computer is running Mac OS X 10.5.8 or a later version of the Mac OS X operating system.To verify that the computer meets this prerequisite, click About This Mac on the Apple menu.To verify that Office for Mac 2011 14.1.0 is installed on your computer, follow these steps:
Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 is a version of the Microsoft Office productivity suite for macOS. It is the successor to Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac and is comparable to Office 2010 for Windows. Office 2011 was followed by Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac released on July 9, 2015, requiring a Mac with an x64 Intel processor and OS X Yosemite or later. Office for Mac 2011 is no longer supported as of October 10, 2017. Support for Lync for Mac 2011 ended on October 9, 2018.
Microsoft Office 2011 includes more robust enterprise support and greater feature parity with the Windows edition. Its interface is now more similar to Office 2007 and 2010 for Windows, with the addition of the ribbon. Support for Visual Basic for Applications macros has returned after having been dropped in Office 2008. Purchasing the Home Premium version of Office for Mac will not allow telephone support automatically to query any problems with the VBA interface. There are however, apparently, according to Microsoft Helpdesk, some third party applications that can address problems with the VBA interface with Office for Mac. In addition, Office 2011 supports online collaboration tools such as OneDrive and Office Web Apps, allowing Mac and Windows users to simultaneously edit documents over the web. It also includes limited support for Apple's high-density Retina Displays, allowing the display of sharp text and images, although most icons within applications themselves are not optimized for this.
Office for Mac 2011 has a number of limitations compared to Office 2010 for Windows. It does not support ActiveX controls, or OpenDocument Format. It also cannot handle attachments in Rich Text Format e-mail messages sent from Outlook for Windows, which are delivered as winmail.dat attachments. It also has several human language limitations, such as lack of support for right-to-left languages such as Arabic, Persian, and Hebrew  and automatic language detection. 
Office for Mac 2011 also has a shorter lifecycle than Office 2010. Support for Office for Mac 2011 was originally scheduled to end on January 12, 2016, but because Office for Mac 2016 did not come out until July 2015, Microsoft extended support until October 10, 2017.  As 32-bit software, it will not run on macOS Catalina or later versions of macOS. It is also not officially supported on macOS High Sierra or macOS Mojave.
Two editions are available to the general public. Home & Student provides Word, Excel and PowerPoint, while Home & Business adds Outlook and increased support. Microsoft Messenger 8 is included with both editions, and Microsoft Communicator for Mac 2011, which communicates with Microsoft Lync Server, is available only to volume licensing customers. Office 2011 requires an Intel Mac running Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later.
The final version was released to manufacturing on September 10, 2010, was available to volume license customers a day later, and made available to the general public on October 26, 2010. Service Pack 1 was released on April 12, 2011.
You can easily uninstall Microsoft 365 apps such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Outlook for Mac using these instructions. You must be signed in as an administrator on the Mac or provide an administrator name and password to complete these steps.
Before you remove Office for Mac 2011, quit all Microsoft 365 applications and make sure there's nothing in Trash that you want to keep. Leave Microsoft 365 applications closed while you go through this process.

Then there is a nasty bug in the macro recorder leading to slashes instead of colons in the string for fileName in the first code block:"/Users/mark/SMPTE_RP_219_2002.png"where the correct format for Word for Mac 2011 on OS X has to be:"Users:mark:SMPTE_RP_219_2002.png"
This sort of procedure is also possible for Office 2016. I managed to use the previous new.thmx I had created for 2011, but was able to save the new theme in 2016 without going the .dotm route. However, starting from scratch with Office 2016 requires a different procedure which I have posted in reply to another question.
Generally, no location should be listed, causing Word to use the default location. If another location is listed (e.g., /Applications/Microsoft Office 2011/Office/Startup/Word, from an earlier version of Word), clearing the setting and letting Word use the default location may fix installation problems and allow Zotero to install the plugin automatically going forward.
The default location of the startup folder is /Applications/Microsoft Office 2011/Office/Startup/Word. You can open it from the Finder by pressing Cmd-Shift-G and copying in the path or by navigating to it.
The default spacing in Microsoft Word for Mac 2011 is set to120 percent of the default font size. However, you can configure Word for Mac to set single spacing as the default for text in the current document or in the Normal template for all future documents. You can also set the spacing between paragraphs in a single document or in the template. By default, Word 2011 inserts 1 1/2 spaces between paragraphs. Decrease the paragraph spacing setting to single space, if desired, in the Line Spacing Options settings.
