  1. Improve auto-correct

    Please stop auto-correct from incorrectly changing "(i.e., …)" to "(I.e., …)" - it's incorrect. That is, you currently have an auto-correct feature that takes correct syntax and makes it incorrect. An auto-incorrect feature is probably one that most people don't want, wouldn't you think?

  2. Text Boxes

  3. The default language option doesn't seem to work.

    When I change the language to UK English, it keeps going back to US English every time I start a new document or even page.

  4. Add a convert to Powerpoint button.

    In Word, I always want to change my mind and put my info into a PowerPoint, but there is always the process of copying and pasting. I think a convert to PowerPoint button would be especially great.

  6. Headers are no longer displayed in Word Online in Edit Mode

    Headers are now hidden in a tab when viewing documents in Word Online in Edit mode. This functionality does not correspond with Word for desktop and is very confusing for end users looking to download documentation from our Intranet when granted Contribute access to the site. Headers should display by default when viewing a document regardless of your access level.

  8. Add ability to edit Microsoft Word forms in Word Online

    Creating a fillable form template document content type on Office 365 SharePoint does not allow you to fill the form using Word Online. Allowing this would mean the ability to automatically fill out forms using metadata columns from SharePoint.

  12. Make Word Online styles editable

    Not being able to change the format of styles in Word Online makes the application/service fairly useless for even modestly complex documents.

  15. FREE V-BUCKS PLS (wE liKe FoRtNiTe)

    Dear Microsoft,
    I am 8 years old and I would like free v-bucks. My epic is TTVHIPRICECURRY. I deserve v-bucks because I am a straight A student and I clean my house and my neighbours house every day.

                                                                                                  Thank You

  16. Product improvement suggestion - Camera pictures!

    Hello,

    I have a suggestion on how to improve Microsoft Word features. Nowadays computers are getting easier to carry and I can work from anywhere. I work on real estate projects and I have to take a lot of pictures and put them in the word tables. It takes a lot of time, especially if you need to insert each picture in the table by browsing maps and searching for the right one you have taken. My laptop has a camera. And I think you can make this task easier if there would be a feature to take pictures directly…

  17. Retteprogram på nynorsk i Word

    Med så mange skoler som nå bruker 1:1 iPad sammen med O365 bør det også være retteprogram for nynorsk også i Word. Før det skjer blir ikke dette et fullgodt verktøy i norskfaget. Det handler ikke om hvor mange som har det som sitt førstespråk, men om hvor mange som har det som et skriftspråk de må forholde seg til. Det er alle elever i skolen, både ungdomsskoler og videregående.

  19. they need to get word art that shows all the stuff and fonts like they do on a normal word ducument.

    word art needs to be added to word online cause whenever i go to make my heading or title pretty it looks bad cause there is no word art like the actual colourful pretty and cool looking ones. so add them into word online and people will like it more and use it more often
