  1. We need Grammarly support

    I think Grammarly should be supported in Office Online. I got it just to improve my Word Online document, disappointed to see it not working. I sent this message to the Grammarly forum, too, but I got no response. Please help us poor schmucks with terrible grammar who need a second pair of eyes and simply can't make do with the built-in spell checker.

  4. Word Online needs navigation pane in view mode also

    There is no navigation pane available in view mode, and I feel this feature is equally important in view mode to be able to quickly navigate through the document.

  5. 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.

    An update on this feature request. The previous comments about the Word Online Viewer being able to add comments was accurate at the time of posting but has since changed to no longer let viewers add comments.

    The feature request to let people comment but not edit the document is still under review.

  6. Ability to insert formula in Word Online

    Please include mathematical formula insertion tool that is found in MS Word 2007, 2010 & 2013. It will be of great help to students of many ages and topics to complete their homeworks and researches.

    This feature is found in Google Docs. I don't see why it can't be included in MS Word Online.

  9. Add a Save button

    Add a Save button. Because I'm paranoid.

  10. Capitalization in a word that should be capitalized.

    If you get a word like Americans, and you write americans, I think it should auto-correct it to the capitalized word. Americans.

  12. Support inserting horizontal lines

    I would like to be able to insert horizontal lines via the "Insert" ribbon. A secondary improvement would be to support the Word Offline autocorrection of multiple dashes being converted to a horizontal line.

  13. Allow new online documents to be created using custom templates.

    New online documents can be created using templates, but not using custom templates. If a custom template file (*.dotm) is available (either on the client system or on any linked cloud repositories), the online document should be able to be created using that custom template.

  14. Bookmarks: Easier Navigation through Large Documents

    We need to be able to add a bookmark to certain pages/words/etc. so we can find what we are working on, potentially with one click, instead of having to scroll through hundreds or thousands of pages to find it.

    This will be especially helpful when proofreading, editing, or re-writing.

  15. Support .dotx templates in Office 365/Word Online

    Opening a .dotx file in Word Online by default should create a new document based on that template.

    A separate option should be provided to edit the template online.

  17. Glossary

    An automatic function to show a list of words with their explanations. The words you like to have in the glossary you mark with one of the templates. Later you just select to insert a glossary list and then you just have to fill in the definitions. You should be able to print this out as well.

  18. background color change

    I would suggest to improve the online version by adding the "background color" option here as well. I really like the "dark theme" in Word 2016 desktop app. This "white on white" background vs paper really hurts the eyes and e.g. I am discouraged to use the app by such a "stupid thing". But it really hurts my eyes. Thank you for your understanding.
    :)
