  1. Assign Colors To Editors

    I would like it if we could pick personal editing colors rather than be randomly assigned to colors. Also, a wider variety of colors would be helpful.

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

  8. Better copy and paste functionality--when pasting between documents, any footnotes/end notes are lost

    Exactly as the title says. It's frustrating that I can't copy and paste chunks of text with footnotes in Word online like I can in the thick client. This is in Google Chrome, if that makes a difference.

  10. Add videos, GIFS or maybe interactive videos so that when we do presentations for our class we could make it more interesting and more hands

    Add videos, GIFS or maybe interactive videos so that when we do presentations for our class we could make it more interesting and more hands-on for everyone, because most of our work is on word and if we could also use it for fun activities then Word could also become a good activity app

  11. Add a built-in thesaurus!

    Add a thesaurus that modifies your word choices as you type ( or underline it with a color and show options, like when you spell a word incorrectly. )

  17. allow myself to place photos where i want

    you see it would be a lot better if Microsoft would allow me to place my own photos where i want them to be placed instead of Microsoft choosing the place that the photo goes to like if i choose a spot where i want to go it chooses another spot instead of exactly where i want it and thats pretty

  18. Make Microsoft Word Online the same exact as Word on a computer!

    Microsoft Word Online is too different from the basic Word on a computer. I wish it was just the same exact thing and had all of the same features. This way it would be easier to have a better, detailed paper and all of the great features from Word would be displayed.

  20. 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?
