Make Office Mac simpler.
I have used various incarnations of Office for years and now have Office 2011 on my Mac running El Capitan. While some of the additions, particularly those in the ribbons, may be useful to some people I'm sure that many could do without most of them. Ability to edit the menus and ribbons would be most useful.
Some previous functions seem to have been removed completely, including some of the add-ins (Excel) and toolbars such as Drawing (Word). If they are still there I haven't been able to find them.
I would dearly love to be able to go back to the previous version which suited me fine but El Capitan doesn't want to do that.
As I am contemplating writing some high-level papers for a senior professional body I would want to explain to readers, many of whom are only moderately Excel-literate, how to do various operations on Excel it is obviously important that things should be as simple as possible.
