It appears to be an IE issue when clicking on the New Document Drop down from the ribbon using fiddler4 there are not any results returned, probably jscript or jquery … I am running IE11 and I have tested IE10 which exhibits the same behavior. I haven’t tested on earlier versions yet.
However, if you open with Mozilla the Microsoft Office is blocked until you Allow Mozilla to open Office Documents and then Default open behavior for browser-enabled documents works as expected. In other words when the library is set to open ion the browser (via WOPI) the documents open in the browser, when set to open in the client application, the docs open in the client as expected..
Click On Allow
Then choose to Allow remember
Then choose OK,
Click on New Document one more time to open from the ribbon
Note: this only occurs if you have WAC installed and configured WOPI with SharePoint. Also, you only have to go to library settings to set the Default open behavior for browser-enabled documents: to Open in the client application, you don’t have to set the site collection… I will resolve as time permits
I have included links below to all of the latest guidance for ELEARNINGFORCE SharePoint (LMS) that we support.
One of the issues as a consultant I find difficult at times is the lack of product documentation. This can happen for many reasons with product immaturity being the most prevalent today. However, this was not always the case. When I first started using PCs and developing software in the 1980s we had to dial-in to an ISVs BBS (Bulletin Board) using very expensive, very slow modems (USR 300b / 1200b) that obviously suffered from performance, and required ISVs BBS phone number. Luckily or maybe not so much it was more difficult to find a bookstore in Los Angeles that carried any publications on software development as there was only one store in Los Angeles that sold books on software development OpAmp 1033 N Sycamore Ave, Hollywood, CA 90038 and software development being such a small industry was just a small part of OpAmps business as the store focus was primarily on Electrical Engineering. Unfortunately, OpAmp is out of business today and the last time I stopped by for nostalgic reasons was in 2012. OpAmp still had a 1990s style website the last time I browed through the site a couple of years ago (see screenshot below), without todays ability to buy and sell the writing was on the wall..
Please pardon my digression as I got carried away reminiscing when I found out today that OpAmp went out of Business sometime in 2013.

I have included links below to the ELEARNING FORCE Competency & Certification Module (CCM) v2.1 Documentation
As time permits I will upload the ELEARNINGFORCE Learning Management System (LMS) v2.1 guidance for SharePoint along with the ELEARNINGFORCE Registration & Enrollment Module (REM) v2.1 for SharePoint documentation. Last, I will provide the known issues as I have found them and recommend future enhancements that will become apparent as you design, develop and deploy the LMS.
Registration is still open. See our SPSEvents site for registration, session, and speaker information.

Who are the Sponsors
Its official, I just received the notification included is an excerpt:
Dear Ivan Sanders,
Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2014 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in SharePoint Server technical communities during the past year.
The Microsoft MVP Award provides us the unique opportunity to celebrate and honor your significant contributions and say “Thank you for your technical leadership.”
Wow another year, this has been the most incredible award I have ever been privileged to receive. I have met so many awesome people. It was a little surreal at first as I was getting to hang with all of my heroes
Thank you for recognizing my community contributions for the 5th year in a row…
Wow what an incredible couple years SharePoint 2013 is still rockin on premise and online
Time Consuming Steps
However, there were two time consuming steps that didn’t have anything to do with the mechanics of the migration or the technology like moving WebParts, Pages, Items, Documents and creating Site Collections from Sites in Additional Content DBs.
Luckily, there were two sources of information that made this easier but still not painless Waldeks Post – Building Global Navigation in SharePoint 2013 http://blog.mastykarz.nl/building-global-navigation-sharepoint-2013/ (it works) and the WAND Library. Unfortunately, though I have access to the Library the client did not choose to purchase the subscription so we didn’t get to take advantage of the huge library of terms.
WAND has started offering its entire catalog of taxonomies from the cloud, where you have the ability to subscribe monthly and download the parts that your Client needs to either start their taxonomy or fill out their taxonomy. I have just been through a relatively easy migration 8 Content Dbs and a small 1TB of Content.
Missing Tools for In-Flight Conversion of Site Columns
The largest notable part missing, though metalogix will help you modify Multi-Choice Site Columns to Managed Metadata Site Columns In-Flight, there are NOT ANY migration products that will convert your binary File Format documents to the OpenXML File Format.
The Microsoft tools like Office Migration Planner will not work with a mapped drive using WebDav, but you can still use PowerShell though we found it was actually better to use a staging Farm, Convert all of your Documents using Word Automation Service. then perform a final migration where we modify the columns In-Flight to take advantage of the managed Metadata Site Columns.
This is important, if you want to take advantage of changing the Multi-Choice Site Columns to managed Metadata Site Columns In-Flight. Because if you have not converted all of your RTFs, HTMs, DOCs to DOCX then you will lose the metadata associated with these documents.
I’m not sure why metavis, sharegate, metalogix, tsunami or others do not build document conversion into their products since we need to be moving off the Binary format for many reasons and embracing the OpenXML Format
