Latest Build of Word Causing Layout Issues

Copper Contributor

With the latest build of Word, Version 2306 (Build 16529.20182), we are having layout issues that do not appear in previous versions, specifically Version 2302 (Build 16130.20644).


For instance, floating images are now in a different place and pages that weren't 2 columns are now using the formatting from other pages.


Is anyone else seeing this issue or knows about it?

@JustinG425 I am not seeing the issue, but that said, I very rarely use floating images as inserting them so that they are In-line with Text is usually a better option.

If you want to share a document with which you have the issues, providing information on how it should be arranged, we will investigate the issue.

In the end, we uninstalled 2016 (even though it was the latest build) and installed the 365 version and it works well again (although not right away, just later that day, probably got some kind of update). Another of our systems with 2016 still has the problem. So this is definitely a bug in Word related to recent specific versions / builds.
