  1. Word count for Chinese. Right now it works only for English.

    Word count for Chinese. Right now it works only for English. I found Google's online word has word count for Chinese, but I like to use One drive's. I hope Office team would implement this. Please let me know if you are working on this. Thank you, Fred

  3. Service is down messaging

    When the service is experiencing problems give feedback at the menu level that the service is down and if possible an ETA on when the service will be back, or else a time when to check again.

    Do not just take me to my documents page and have an error that my docs don't exist.

  5. more cloud services to connect

    would be great if there would be a possibility to connect and save/open in other cloud services, like Box (not only Skydrive and Dropbox).

  8. Provide meta information about embedded images.

    I would like to see the meta properties of embedded images (such as the filename, size, date - the complete meta whatever is included) in either a tooltip or right-click>properties for images, but could expand to any embedded file in any of the Word Online interfaces.

  9. Can I seriously not upload local docs into Word Online?

    How is it, in 2015, with Google Docs offering this functionality from its inception, that I can't simply open a document on my local machine from Word Online? Having to first upload a document into OneDrive is not acceptable, because it is a bunch of unnecessary steps.

    This needs to be added, like, yesterday.

  11. Provide user control over fields displayed in list view

    Having just posted my thoughts about improving consistency in list view, I want to add what I'd REALLY like: the ability to choose the fields to be displayed in list view AND the order of the fields.

    Wouldn't it be great if we could just right-click to add/remove fields, and be able to drag fields so the left-to-right order meets individual preferences?

    This may be a minor matter for some folks, but anyone with a long list of files knows it's very inefficient and time-consuming to hunt for the file you need using search criteria you can't adjust except for…

  14. Better Images for Icons

    I think that it would be great if you guys included more intuitive icons for some of the functions ( i kinda had to hunt around till I found the line spacing icon ) and more importantly , I think that you guys could scale up the resolution of the icons to make them more attractive and sharper to look at. Go head on with Google Drive!!

  18. In the Word Online FILE menu, include the option for "Close" and "Open on Desktop"

    These options might already be someplace in Word Online, but I can't find them.

  20. Bring back Keep format pasting

    In Word 2010 there was a option where you could keep the format of text when copying and pasting. Bring that back please!
