Microsoft releases Office November 2018 non-security updates

Microsoft released a batch of non-security updates for Microsoft Office yesterday. The company selected the first Tuesday of the month to release non-security patches for Microsoft Office.

The updates apply to .msi-based editions of Microsoft Office only and not to "click-to-run" Office editions such as Microsoft Office 365.

Microsoft released updates for Office 2010, 2013, and 2016 in November. Check out our coverage of the October 2018 updates for Microsoft Office if you missed it.

The Office 2010 and 2013 patches released in November update the Japanese calendar to address new era name display issues. The Office 2016 patches address the issue as well and issues in Outlook, SharePoint libraries, and Office 2016 in general.

Update: Some users report that installed updates removed OneNote 2016 from the system. Affected users need to check a support page on the Office site. The removal is a bug according to Microsoft and it is possible to reinstall OneNote.

Office 2010

  • A bug caused some lines of an emf file to display incorrectly if saved as a PDF document.

KB4461438 and KB4461474 fix the Japanese calendar era name display issue.

KB4461502 -- The PowerPoint 2016 update fixes two issues in the software program.

  • Macros in ppt files saved as pptm files using Presentation.SaveAs were not always included in the new file.
  • Issue with Information Rights Management encrypted PowerPoint templates that would not create a new pptx document when a user double-clicked on the template file on Backstage View. Documents could not be previewed in Backstage view either.

It is recommended that administrators and users install only patches that address issues that users experience.

    “The Office 2001 and 2013 patches”
    I think it should say 2010 and not 2001.

      That’s right. If you install one of the updates mentioned on Win XP, Outlook 2010 doesn’t start anymore.
