I recently started using Microsoft Office 365 on my Mac running MacOS. When I tried to edit a document, it said "Your account doesn't allow editing on a Mac?" What do I need to do to edit my documents?

There are a few possible reasons for the error.

License is Blatantly Invalid

If you're using a pirated copy, or a copy that is legitimately not licensed for use on a Mac, the most obvious solution is to get a legitimate copy. You can get instant access to MS office for Mac from Amazon in like two minutes through this affiliate link. If you're a student and need a physical copy, you can also get a 6-month trial of Amazon Prime for two-day shipping, which is 600% longer than the trial for non-students. 

Actually a Valid License

There are a few reasons why this error can occur even with a valid license. Solutions include:

  • Installing any system updates and restarting your machine.
  • Verify you're using the correct Office license through this link, go to Settings > Office 365 > Subscriptions and look under the "licenses" section to make sure you have the correct version.
  • Uninstall and reinstall Office. Make sure you're using the latest version of both.

Use Google Drive

Google Drive is clearly superior to MS Office, but whatever, I'm not your dad.
