    Thanks for your feedback. Spell checking is already part of the Word Online product. It shows up automatically as red squiggle lines under a misspelled words, and can be invoked manually from the ‘review’ tab on the ribbon.

    Let us know if this doesn’t resolve your issue.

  2. Duplicate and rename files within browser

    I would like to be able to duplicate a file e.g. a word or excel file and rename it right within the browser. This is a great feature of Google Docs

  3. Word Online Problem

    When I use Word Online I always seem to make a mistake and there is no undo button. I just wish there were one so I could at least undo the mistakes I make. Thanks!

Select the symbol you want to insert and either right-click on it to select Copy or hit Ctrl+C, then click on your Word Online document at the location you want to insert it, and either right-click and select Paste or hit Ctrl+V.

    Thanks for your suggestion. Both of these features are already available on Word Online. When you start a new sentence the first letter of the word should be capitalized for you automatically. When a word is misspelled, you should automatically see a red squiggle under it, if you righ-click on the word, it will provide you with any available suggested corrections.

    Let us know if this doesn’t resolve your issue.

    Thanks for the feedback. When you share your document, you can specify who you’d like to share it with by entering their email address. They will then receive an email with a link to your document they can use to open it and print it for you.

    Let us know if this doesn’t resolve your issue.

    Thanks for your feedback. Word Online already allows you to enter page breaks which you can use to enter a blank page either at the beginning, middle or end of your document. In order to avoid displaying the header/footer on those pages, select the Header/Footer button in the Insert ribbon and select one of the items in the Options menu to the right of the header.

    Let us know if this doesn’t resolve your issue.

  15. add picture wrap text

    you should add wrap text for pictures as its difficult to do work with your picture's taking up half the page

    We’ve now added the ability to wrap text around a picture! You can find this option by selecting an image on your document, clicking the Picture Tools Format ribbon tab and selecting Wrap Text. You have options for wrapping square right/left, and in front or behind of text. Enjoy!

  16. Bullet and Numbering depth options like word 2013.

    I would like to bullet in depth like 1.1.1.1. This is able to be done in word 2010 and word 2013 desktop app. I think it would just need to be added to word online so we can collaborate. This is available in google docs so I am sure you can do it!

  17. Word (office) for chromebook

    Hi! I've been using word (and office included) for more than a decade now. From PC to MAC, I've been using it interchangeably on both platforms. Now that I have a chromebook and has been a fan of using this very portable and affordable device, I hope you guys can make a chrome OS compatible version! This will be very helpful since I bring my chromebook almost everywhere bec of it's portability. Thanks!

  19. Page Break

    Add Page Break option

    Easier to create a page in between 2 written pages, or if one would like to start a new page without having to use a full page.

    Thank you for your feedback! Word Online actually supports that feature today. To use it, you can navigate to the “Insert” tab, click on “Page Break”. To see how the page break looks in your document, you can navigate to the “View” tab and click on “Reading View”. Please let us know if you have further questions.

  20. Capitalization

    Capitalization of the first letter in the sentence should be automatic. It's such a small thing, but it really makes a tremendous difference.
