  2. Custom Word templates for Word Online

    If you use a template library in Sharepoint Online for hosting Office templates, this works for the Word app (desktop version) but not the Word Online edition (E3 or E5). Would like to enhance the use of Word templates in the Online version - such that files can be saved-as templates, docx files can be opened in the online version and then saved by users as a new file (like the desktop version). Just the same way you can use templates on Powerpoint Online in combination with a template library.

  3. Why can't we add Page Borders?

    Without Page Borders Office 365 Education doesn't make sense.

  4. Add the option to add custom fonts

    There's no font for my language in office365. Even if I change my systems keyboard accordingly, it doesn't work on word for web. Please add a way to install desired fonts on word web. It's a must have.

  7. Text Boxes

  11. 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.

  14. User specific default font color / settings

    We use word online for rolling team notes. We have multiple people collaborating on the same document. We often work async and to see who wrote what we use different font colors. It would be great if you could, per document, specify a default font color so we don't have to format and change it manually all the time.

  16. Use AI to simplify text

    Along with the Readability Score in Editor, how about a Simplifier feature, so that a piece of text can be simplified and more accessible with one click.

  18. Remove Floating Text Box for Track Changes

    When you work with Track Changes enabled in Word Online you also get text boxes when you hover over the changed text.
    These are extremely annoying as they don't let you see the document.
    Please remove them or at least allow the option to disable them.
