  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  7. 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.

  12. Have an list to add fonts like Google Drive.

    In Google Drive, there is an option to add more fonts. It would be cool to see that in One Drive as I like it better.

  14. It would be great to be able to convert from .odt to .docx

    I have created files with libreoffice and openoffice and i had many issues due to those softwares. I wanted to use msoffice but i have created all my files in .odt and i can't get all features from Ms office. Being able to convert .odt in .docx in word online would be great.

  18. Add a paper texture option in themes

    I would like to see paper texture backgrounds available in the template folder named 'paper'. Letters created in word and output as a PDF could look really good if a background texture were added that bled to the edges. The art of letter writing is not dead, let's see some nice fibre and grain paper documents.
