  3. Please don't say "it's just you here now

    When you are editing a document with another person, when they leave it says it's just you here now. This makes me feel lonelier than I am already.

    Hi, thanks for the great idea.

    The Word for Web product has a new experience for how to show other people who are also editing the document in real-time. As part of this new design experience we no longer say “If’s just you here now.”

    The new design includes profile pictures (if available,) makes it clear which color applies to which person, and also indicates when people are inactive (not moving their cursor for 15 mins.)

    Thanks for your feedback. Word Online allows for copy and pasting document content in both our viewer and editor. Can you give us more details on the scenario this is not working for you?

  15. Word Online Problem

    When I use Word Online I always seem to make a mistake and there is no undo button. I just wish there were one so I could at least undo the mistakes I make. Thanks!

    Correct. The online picture selector allows you to search for images from the web via the Bing search engine. If you would like to use a different search engine or online photo site, you can open a different tab on your browser and copy/paste the image from there.

    I’ll mark this suggestion as completed for now, but please let us know if you have any other questions/feedback about this feature.

    Thanks for your feedback. Word Online has a spell checker which automatically checks your document and puts red squiggles under any word that is not spelled correctly. You can then right-click on the mispelled word and select suggested corrections. You can also invoke this functionality manually by going to the Review ribbon and selecting Spelling.

    Let us know if this doesn’t resolve your issue.

  19. Create MLA Format

    Word has options for header/footer etc. I think having an MLA format layout would be great, and very easy. It would also be helpful for students who are learning how to type in this format.
