  1. Improve auto-correct

    Please stop auto-correct from incorrectly changing "(i.e., …)" to "(I.e., …)" - it's incorrect. That is, you currently have an auto-correct feature that takes correct syntax and makes it incorrect. An auto-incorrect feature is probably one that most people don't want, wouldn't you think?

  3. Enable external emails for @mentions

    If your company does not use Outlook emails with Office 365, @mention-style notifications are not an option. Without this, it's extremely hard to productively collaborate around a doc. All the other software we use associates emails with user profiles to make this a possibility.

  7. PDF quality should be equal to Word "Save as PDF" - do not rasterize vector graphics

    Currently PDF created by "Download as PDF" are of inferior quality than those generated by the desktop app.

    Most notably, vector artwork such as SVG logos, even simples ones with flat colors, are preserved in Word fpr Desktop, resulting in nicer looking and smaller PDFs.

    Word online rasterizes all vector art and makes them low-res, blocky images, which consume more space. This makes for visually unpleasant, unfaithful documents, which take up more space.

    PDF generation on Word online should preserve vector images in the output for better visual fidelity and smaller documents.

  9. Add a convert to Powerpoint button.

    In Word, I always want to change my mind and put my info into a PowerPoint, but there is always the process of copying and pasting. I think a convert to PowerPoint button would be especially great.

  14. Make track changes a full-time feature in Word Online

    Word Online should have the ability to utlize track changes from the online version. (Today, I either have to be sent a document with track changes turned on, or an email attachment in the desktop version of Word, turn on track changes, and then reopen in Word Online in order to make this really important tool work.) That multistep process is extremely cumbersome and defeatist of trying to have a completely integrated online system.

  16. Answer user voice feedback and/or clean it up

    Answer Feedback and/or clean it up at least. Seriously is this user voice forum just seems like a joke. If nothing else its bad PR to just leave it is up here and do nothing. I mean look at some of these requests:

    mom plz kill meh ywyywywywywyywywywywyw
    Add russian polar bears
    every word should be joe momma
    You should give out 100$ to kids who use it alot
    xbox free games
    give toliet paper to urinals
    Please don't say "it's just you here now

    Obviously Microsoft never ever reads this forum. So disappointing and leads to the idea this…

  18. Assign Colors To Editors

    I would like it if we could pick personal editing colors rather than be randomly assigned to colors. Also, a wider variety of colors would be helpful.
