  4. Add option to choose default behaviour of document opening in Office Online

    At the moment option to open documents in edit mode by default is probably ok for most of the users with small documents, but in case that user really need just a quickly check some data in a large document that works too slow. I would like to have option to change default behavior on this. Ideally on document library level.

  6. MS office should support Arabic in dictation

    I am wondering why Microsoft dictate does not support while support Chinese. There are around 1 billion speak Arabic.
    Arabic is important as Chinese.
    Google support Arabic.
    I am not working why ppl are moving to Google product.
    Google is always one step ahead from you (Microsoft).
    I am really annoyed. I am paying you and you should offer us what we need for our work.

  9. Hidden Text feature

    We had a recent need to have the ability to use the 'hidden' text feature to a cloud document but found out that the feature was not available in the online version of '"ord". This would be a nice feature to have

  10. Support .dotx templates in Office 365/Word Online

    Opening a .dotx file in Word Online by default should create a new document based on that template.

    A separate option should be provided to edit the template online.

  13. Insert picture from OneDrive for Business

    Currently (January 2018) OneDrive for Business is not supported as a source for inserting pictures into a document using Word Online.

    This is a basic and common requirement for document creators working with Word Online.

    Please implement and advise status. Thanks!

  16. Ability to insert formula in Word Online

    Please include mathematical formula insertion tool that is found in MS Word 2007, 2010 & 2013. It will be of great help to students of many ages and topics to complete their homeworks and researches.

    This feature is found in Google Docs. I don't see why it can't be included in MS Word Online.

  17. Focus mode for Word

    Word is too feature rich and full of fancy UI.

    Please remove all the distraction and give me a mode to distraction free writing. Just me and my content.

  18. Word Online needs navigation pane in view mode also

    There is no navigation pane available in view mode, and I feel this feature is equally important in view mode to be able to quickly navigate through the document.

  19. Calculations

    I know it is most likely too complex to pull off, but as one may be able to search in (google) something such as '23 + 47 =', (google) will solve the equation or problem for you.
    
    It would be a nice and advanced feature for it to give the red squiggle line, or a different color, and prompt the user the answer. This would help me in many of my daily things, but i am sure would help other users as well. Complex functions such as y=mx+b and things may not be calculated, but simple numbers such as one

  20. Allow new online documents to be created using custom templates.

    New online documents can be created using templates, but not using custom templates. If a custom template file (*.dotm) is available (either on the client system or on any linked cloud repositories), the online document should be able to be created using that custom template.
