Microsoft Word 2016 last character missing when typing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an intermittent issue when typing.  When typing, the characters appear on screen less the last character.  So if I typed the word 'word', then I would have 'wor' appear, but if I was then to carry on, so either hitting space to make 'word' or continuing with another character, maybe writing 'wording', then the last character would appear.

    It is intermittent so you never know if it is because you missed the last character or if it is this issue.

    Has anyone seen this before?  Is there a solution?

  • Hi Andy,

    Does this issue only occur to Word?
    How about typing in other applications like Outlook or notepad?

    To help narrow down if the issue is related to any third party add-ins, please try to start Word in safe mode(Press Win + R, type "outlook /safe", press Enter.) and see if there will be any improvement.

    Any findings, please post back at ease.

    Best regards,
    Yuki Sun
