    Then no one's gonna pay 50 bucks for the desktop version of word if the online one has the same features.

    The save needs to be seamless - when saving in Word online sometimes it reverts back to the original text and since it saved there is no way to get the few sentences/paragraph typed back and I have to retype it all. It is even worse when there are multiple people working in the file at one time - sections go missing. It is very frustrating.

    Yes, all options should be available in word online just like it is in Word desktop. Compared to Google docs Word online has little functions and features online

    ability to real time co edit using any online hosting provider...not just one drive. co editing today takes too many steps.

    A primary gap in my daily, and personal use of Word Online, is the missing reference functions like citation management, caption management, and table of contents management features.

    Track changes and Tabs/rulers are ABSOLUTE must haves. Please let me/us know if this is in the works? Otherwise, we need to transition to Google Suite for our business, which is not my preference.

    Tacking Changes in an important feature for education. Teachers need to be able to see changes during the writing process.
