    • For the love of all fucks - add space between pages!!!!!

      How the hell can you not have space between pages??? I understand that some of your programmers never went through regular school and therefore never had to write essays - but real people have to have that function. Why the fudge would I use your word online if I cant see where pages start and end? Are you living in a society where all information comes in one-page-formats???? Most useless shit Ive ever come across.....

          • The online version doesn't line up like the PC version of Word. How about adding in rulers so we can obtain the same document lineup as we ?

            The online version doesn't line up like on the PC version of Word. How about adding in rulers or fixing it in whatever way that would make the same formatting possible?

            • Please restore Track Changes online!

              I was doing a lot of work on my laptop, editing a very large legal document for which my client needs to see all changes. The new update means that I can't use Track Changes online, but only on a desktop that has Word. That means I have no incentive to continue using Word Online. I feel like this is an important piece of user experience feedback for you guys (not you personally, of course!)

              It's a pity because I was getting really into Word Online and had started telling friends/colleagues about it.

                • Chat Logs in all Office 365 applications

                  The ability to keep chat logs on Office 365 online application while collaborating would be a very beneficial feature to have. This would allow a user to reference any chat at a later time.

                  • Please actually make page breaks so we can see where it finishes and ends.

                    Please the option to have spaces between pages like in the offline version of Word. This would finally make the online version of word a usable alternative to the downloaded version.

                    • Dictation: Allow an option for speech-to-text

                      Instead of wasting time typing, allow people to talk into the mic and their words turn into text.

                      • show the header and the footer

                        When you insert a header/footer, it disappears after you click on the other part of the text. It should be so that the header/footer stays on the page when you click away.

                              • How come you took away the translate function in Word ONLINE and when you have an attachment in WORD in your email. BRING IT BACK.

                                The translating function on Word online and the attachment in an email just vanished last week. You need to bring it back. It was the most convenient way to translate full documents into another language. The Translate function in regular word is awful. It brings it to another website and you can't format or edit it. The version on ONLINE and email attachment you were able to download it right there into the other language and fix any formatting issues. We desperately need that to help our ELL population.

                                    In Google docs, you can tag a collaborator via comments so he/she/they can see changes and address questions/comments. It's an extremely valuable featrue.

                                      • I wished that if you type dinosaur the Jurassic park them song will start playing at max volume and you cant turn it off.

                                        It is a creative and engaging way for kids to learn about dinosaurs. So just subscribe, turn on those notifications, and smash that like button to help this idea grow.
