    Thanks for the feedback. When you share your document, you can specify who you’d like to share it with by entering their email address. They will then receive an email with a link to your document they can use to open it and print it for you.

    Let us know if this doesn’t resolve your issue.

    Thanks for your feedback. Word Online already supports word count, which you can find at the bottom left corner of the window. You can also highlight parts of your document to get a word count for specific sections.

    Let us know if this doesn’t resolve your issue.

  7. Insert picture from OneDrive

    When clicking a "inser picture" a popup should appear. Then you can choose if you want to search for online images, upload from local HDD or insert image from OneDrive files.

    Thanks for your feedback. Word Online already allows you to enter page breaks which you can use to enter a blank page either at the beginning, middle or end of your document. In order to avoid displaying the header/footer on those pages, select the Header/Footer button in the Insert ribbon and select one of the items in the Options menu to the right of the header.

    Let us know if this doesn’t resolve your issue.

    We’ve now added the ability to wrap text around a picture! You can find this option by selecting an image on your document, clicking the Picture Tools Format ribbon tab and selecting Wrap Text. You have options for wrapping square right/left, and in front or behind of text. Enjoy!

  10. Bullet and Numbering depth options like word 2013.

    I would like to bullet in depth like 1.1.1.1. This is able to be done in word 2010 and word 2013 desktop app. I think it would just need to be added to word online so we can collaborate. This is available in google docs so I am sure you can do it!

  11. Cloud fonts / Fonts online

    You know it would be great to see actually used font in document. Or to have synced fonts between devices. Or is it just me?

  12. comment

    We should have an option where a person can add comments but not change the document itself. It would be similar to view access but with the ability to select text and add comments.

    Thank you for your feedback. The Word Online viewer does allow you to leave comments on the document that the document creator can then review and reply on. You can find this option on the top right of the corner of the page under your sign in name. Let us know if you don’t find this or this is not the functionality you’re looking for.

  13. Word (office) for chromebook

    Hi! I've been using word (and office included) for more than a decade now. From PC to MAC, I've been using it interchangeably on both platforms. Now that I have a chromebook and has been a fan of using this very portable and affordable device, I hope you guys can make a chrome OS compatible version! This will be very helpful since I bring my chromebook almost everywhere bec of it's portability. Thanks!

  15. Page Break

    Add Page Break option

    Easier to create a page in between 2 written pages, or if one would like to start a new page without having to use a full page.

    Thank you for your feedback! Word Online actually supports that feature today. To use it, you can navigate to the “Insert” tab, click on “Page Break”. To see how the page break looks in your document, you can navigate to the “View” tab and click on “Reading View”. Please let us know if you have further questions.

  16. Capitalization

    Capitalization of the first letter in the sentence should be automatic. It's such a small thing, but it really makes a tremendous difference.

  18. It is really unacceptable to only be able to Download or save as a PDF.

    It is really unacceptable to only be able to Download or save as a PDF. We must be able to "save as" to a OneDrive folder. This is a step backwards in capability. How do we explain to users that you can't "save as to a Word document in another folder?" See this picture https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=D1EC3FDAF8263BB9!46474&authkey=!AEslMi34e9xWsN0&v=3&ithint=photo%2cJPG

  19. Need a zoom option to "Page Width"

    Word Online needs to have the "page width" view option - I can barely see what I am typing on my small screen.
