    ·     (February 4, 2015) KB2910891 has been released by Microsoft which is an update for Microsoft Word 2010. The following issues are fixed in this update:
    •Assume that you insert a DOCPROPERTY filed that refers to a custom document property in a Word 2010 document. Then you save the document as an .odt file and then you close it. When you reopen the file, the DOCPROPERTY field is displayed as a plain text.

    •When you open an attached email that contains Japanese text and hyperlinks in Outlook 2010, Outlook may crash.

    •When you paste content to a Word 2010 document in which the track changes function is enabled, Word may crash.

    •Assume that you upload a Word document to a SharePoint document library, and the document contains a linked Visio object. You open the document and then save and close it. In this situation, the linked Visio object cannot be recognized as a Visio object when you reopen the document. Therefore, when you right-click it, the Update Link and Linked Visio Object commands are missing. Additionally, when you click the Object command, you may receive the following error message:
    "This object is corrupt or no longer available".
