  2. Add "Insert Shapes" to Word

    I think it would be a really good idea to add "Insert Shapes" to Word, because most people use Word for reports, and I personally add flowcharts into reports when I can, so I think it would be really good to be able to make a digital flow chart or add shapes to Word.

  9. editor

    I would like to be able to add specific spellings of a word for a specific territory. Not just for me, but for everyone in the country.

    I this case, the spelling "bye-law" is used in Ireland. Other countries use "by-law" or "bylaw"

    There are examples of the spelling here: http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/eli/2004/act/44/section/9/enacted/en/html#sec9 on the government's official website for legislation.

    Additionally, it would be useful to add the official spellings of places in a given territory, e.g. https://www.logainm.ie/en/ has the official spellings of every placename in Ireland.

  10. Allow user to split a window vertically as well as horizontally

    SUGGESTION: Allow for the option of a vertical split pane on the VIEW tab of the ribbon. This would allow split panes to be arranged vertically side by side as well as horizontally.

    PROBLEM: Word includes the option to split a document window, from the VIEW tab, so you can see different sections of the document at the same time in two panes. Unfortunately, the split is limited to a horizontal split pane with one pane above the other.

    BACKGROUND: Why? Some would argue that you can have two full vertical windows for the same document tiled vertically so they…

  12. Create a desktop shortcut that opens online docs in the desktop app

    This is currently only achievable by making a complicated shortcut of: <word-app-path> <shared-file-online-url>

    Why can I not just create a shortcut on my desktop as if the file were on my computer? I don't want the shortcut to go online first unless I choose that.

    I would like to create new document, but there is no search bar to enter my idea for themes like the laptop has. Please add this feature for tablet Office. Thank you Microsoft!

  16. Document Margins

    Grant the ability to define document margins in mobile Word so users can make their own envelopes. This could potentially solve a host of other problems.

  18. ENVELOPES!!!!!! How about about mobile Envelopes??? It is unconscionable that you would omit this feature in a WORD PROCESSING PROGRAM!

    On your site, one of your Answerers made a statement about none of their software being compatible with the Mac or an iPad. Therefore, they didn't put the envelope feature in mobile Word. That's like saying, "I'm not a child; therefore, there should be no crayons in the world." Has the world really become that selfish???
    There are plenty of entrepreneurs who work solely from their iPads, who would make Word their only program IF it had the envelope feature.
    And what about all the creative people out there? With the iPad now being stylus capable, not having a good…
