  3. Go back to the Word 2007 look. Word 2013 is ugly and hard on the eyes. GIve us color options.

    Give us the option to change the look of Word. The "blue" of 2007 and 2010 was easy on the eyes. The colored icons and buttons made it easy to find what I needed quickly. The "contrast" options which only change the grey color is inadequate to say the very least.

  4. Allow an option for viewing word count without footnotes

    right now if you click the word count it turns of and on, but it would be nice if there was a third click that showed the word count without footnotes

  12. Download as RTF and TXT files

    It would be nice to download text as plain text or RTF. I often use word to initially type in discussion posts for online classes because of its nice layout, and then copy the text and paste it into the text box for the course. The problem is that word online randomly concatenates a few words when you copy from it. If I could download as a text file or rtf I could then copy the pure text locally on my computer.

  13. Links/URL/Hyperlinks don't work in read-only mode. It's be useful if they did

    Many document on our intranet are read-only. When viewing them in Word Online any links just don't work. So we have to download them by opening into Word on our Desktops to follow these links. This is a pain!

  19. Sync between the Online version of word and the Desktop Version needs a better update protocol especially when dealing cross OS

    The protocol for syncing cross OS word types to the online version of Word ends up running into sync problems especially a sync pending problem. I suggest you take the information from a desktop version of word and create a universal interpretation language where the sync from desktop to cloud stores the data of the file in a text file and a interpretation file that holds the attributes of the text. Sort of like that of android studio in java classes and xml code.
