Office 365 / 2016, SharePoint properties of type [lookup – multi select] do not work on backstage (File / Info screen)


Issue:
You have Office 365 / 2016 and open a document from SharePoint that has SharePoint metadata properties of type [lookup - multi select] and they do not show and can not be set on the Office backstage area (File / Info screen)

Cause:
This is a current design limitation with Office, there are no current plans to change this behavior.

Workarounds:
If using Word, you can use the SharePoint properties screen (View tab \ Properties see screen shot below) or to use the properties page from the SharePoint web UI.
