  2. Bring back custom page borders

    Previous versions of Word included the ability to insert borders, including single-line, double-line, and custom borders, to text documents. To spice up my resumes, for instance, I would include a border to make it stand out from the crowd. It was a useful feature and I would like it included in new versions of Word.

  3. We need Grammarly support

    I think Grammarly should be supported in Office Online. I got it just to improve my Word Online document, disappointed to see it not working. I sent this message to the Grammarly forum, too, but I got no response. Please help us poor schmucks with terrible grammar who need a second pair of eyes and simply can't make do with the built-in spell checker.

  4. Glossary

    An automatic function to show a list of words with their explanations. The words you like to have in the glossary you mark with one of the templates. Later you just select to insert a glossary list and then you just have to fill in the definitions. You should be able to print this out as well.

  5. multiple languages

    The system needs to support multiple languages.

    Ideally Word Online should detect what languages the user is using. When it detects a language other than the system default, it should prompt the user if they want to use the detected language.

  11. When someone sends me a document, let me print it out rather than having to download it and bring it up in Acrobat to print it.

  14. 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.

  16. Be Google.

    Be Google.

    Problems (only few examples):
    * This is HIGHLY important: A document cannot be stored in MULTIPLE folders. Google solved it with hierarchical labels (tags).
    * Large Google doc (+200 pages) cannot be exported correctly to MS word.
    * The MS Word and Excel online lacks so many important capabilities. I don't want to open the Desktop Word and Excel each time I want to edit the document.
    * Since I have "Edit" credentials, why should I click again to edit, and then wait more till the document opens?
    * I don't see other editor changes in real time.…

  17. background color change

    I would suggest to improve the online version by adding the "background color" option here as well. I really like the "dark theme" in Word 2016 desktop app. This "white on white" background vs paper really hurts the eyes and e.g. I am discouraged to use the app by such a "stupid thing". But it really hurts my eyes. Thank you for your understanding.
    :)

  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. Support inserting horizontal lines

    I would like to be able to insert horizontal lines via the "Insert" ribbon. A secondary improvement would be to support the Word Offline autocorrection of multiple dashes being converted to a horizontal line.
