  2. 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.

  9. Enable combo boxes on-line

    I created a document with combo boxes. Customer would have to download the document to change values in combo box. I would like for them to be able to change values without downloading the document.

    Kind of like a poll.

  11. comment

    We should have an option where a person can add comments but not change the document itself. It would be similar to view access but with the ability to select text and add comments.

    An update on this feature request. The previous comments about the Word Online Viewer being able to add comments was accurate at the time of posting but has since changed to no longer let viewers add comments.

    The feature request to let people comment but not edit the document is still under review.

  12. Ruler: Add a ruler to Word Online

    Like the desktop version, I would like to see how long certain parts of my document are.

  13. 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
