  1. Styles working the same in the sharepoint web app as they do in the desktop app.

    I'm not talking about editing styles or adding new styles. When I take one of my company's standard formatted specifications that we've been using for years, most of the styles are not formatted the same in the sharepoint app as they are in the desktop app which adds a layer of complexity to using sharepoint that undermines its purpose: collaboration.

  2. MSTP style guide tab for content developers

    Problem: For technical writers, the MSTP style guide is required to write any technical documentation or UX documentation. Not everyone in the organization will know everything about the MSTP guide, because MSTP is an ocean. Writers might miss some inputs in the document. Or it is time-consuming to search for information on google.

    Solution: Enhance the MSTP tab in the Word document with all the MSTP styles embedded—similar to Grammarly. This will help writers understand the rational behind every suggestions.

  3. Draw Vector images in Word document

    Problem: Using Microsoft Word, we can draw or create different shapes, charts, and SmartArt graphics. However, we cannot create vector images using shapes, charts, and SmartArt graphics. To create vector images, we have to depend on various applications such as Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I suggest that we can have the Illustrator option in Microsoft Word. It will be easier for everyone to show their projects using vector images if available in the Word document.

    Solution: Add the Illustrator tab and provide the required elements in the Word document to draw the images using the provided elements. This make the…

  4. Curriculum Vitae MS Word

    On the Curriculum Vitae in MS Word, is it possible to open it already with the SHOW / HIDE "P"? My idea is only to make it easier to format.
    Another thing, the TOUCH facility (another option for MOUSE) does not really work for me. Perhaps because of the computer age?
    Thank you.

  6. Microsoft word document type easy visual document administration

    Wish there is a future option to easily identify a Microsoft Wold document type within the document properties with easy option to filter, find from document administration, in addition to share-point attachment and column field status or document type creation.

  7. Microsoft word document status administration

    Wish we future feature the option to easily filter, find Microsoft word documents by document status (e.g. created, resolved, in progress, etc...) Not featuring this option, user may conventionally upload document into Share Point and create status INSTEAD of easy directory command within documents administration.

  8. Update URL after selecting Viewing mode from the Mode Menu drop-down

    Opening a document in the Editing mode of Word for the web takes a lot longer than Viewing mode, so if a user wants to add a document to their Favorites or pin it to their Start Menu for quick reference, it would be preferable for it to open in Viewing mode.

    However, when changing the mode from the Mode Menu drop-down from Editing to Viewing, the URL isn't updated, so when you create the shortcut, it opens the document in Editing mode.

    It is possible to manually edit the URL by searching for the "action=default" and replacing it with…

  10. Display of headers/footers in Word Online

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Word Online でのヘッダー/フッターの表示について
    Display of headers/footers in Word Online


    ■Description(内容):
    Word Online で、編集モードでもヘッダー/フッターが表示されるよう機能の改善を要望します。

    現在の Word Online では、ヘッダーとフッターの見え方が以下のように異なることが確認されております。
    ・閲覧モード:ヘッダー/フッターが表示される
    ・編集モード:ヘッダー/フッターが表示されない

    下記公開資料から、上記の動作は想定された動作であることはわかっておりますが、
    編集可能なユーザーが、ヘッダー/フッターが設定されている Word ファイルへクラウド上でアクセスした場合、設定しているはずのヘッダー/フッターが表示されず、正常に設定されているのか困惑してしまう場合があります。
    https://support.microsoft.com/ja-jp/office/%E3%83%963e863ce3-e82c-4211-8f97-5b33c36c55f8

    この度の要望が実装されることで、編集者側も一目でヘッダー/フッターが設定されていることが認識でき、都度、閲覧モードに切り替えて確認する工数も削減できると考えます。

    Please make it so that headers and footers can be displayed in editing mode in Word Online.

    Currently, in Word Online, the following display behavior for headers/footers can be seen:
    In viewing mode: Headers/footers are shown
    In editing mode: Headers/footers are not shown

    According to the documentation below, it would seem that this behavior is intended.
    However, in cases where users with editing rights access Word files with headers/footers set up…

  11. Fix differences in appearance when using the same font on both the Word client and in Word Online

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Word クライアントと Word Online にて同じフォントを使用している場合でも表記が異なるため、統一の表記となるよう改善を要望します
    Fix differences in appearance when using the same font on both the Word client and in Word Online


    Word クライアントと Word Online にて同じフォントを使用している場合でも表記が異なるため、学校等で利用する際に英語表記であると、生徒が判別がしづらく困惑が生じる場合も想定されるため、統一の表記となるよう改善を要望します。

    Even when using the same font in both, there are differences in appearance between the Word client and Word Online, and so when using these at school etc. it is difficult for students to distinguish between text when using English letters, so please make fonts display in the same way in both client.

  13. Smart Art Generator

    We need a way to customize smart art. The template you have are great, but more are needed. It would be nice to be able to make our own customized smart art from scratch, where we get to choose the shapes, the arrow styles, the placement of the arrows and shapes etc.

  14. allow to uncheck the profanity filter for transcription!

    The profanity filter can now be unchecked for dictation but cannot be removed for transcription! This is a pain in the ***!
    Please allow adults to get transcription of what they need.
    We do pay for the thing and your speech-to-text is working better and better. It is ridiculous that we must search for ***in the text, listen to swearwords again and put them back in the text.
    If you want us to stop sinning, this defeats the purpose: we must listen to swearwords twice and end up swearing even more because this wastes our time.
    At least…
