I hear a couple of years ago that Studio is incompatible with Office 365. Is that still so?
Microsoft knows nothing about CAT tools, and SDL is impossible to approach.

No problems Jul 22, 2015

Hi Randi - I am currently using Office 365 and Studio 2014 and haven't encountered any difficulties between the two.

Hope this helps reassure you!

Kind regards

Office 365 and Studio 2015 Jul 22, 2015

I am currently using Office 365 and Studio 2015 on a macbook air with bootcamp. It works fine and I have not had any problems whatsoever.

Live preview broken with click to run version Jul 22, 2015

In the Studio editor, the live preview only works if you have a MSI installed version of MS Office.
In practice, that means Office 365 and most versions of Office 2010 and 2013, won't let Studio show the live preview.

The workaround is to use Ctrl+shift+P to view the target document in its native application, but it doesn't automatically refresh.

It will be good when (if) SDL addresses this issue.
