  1. Turn on the "Numbering" and "Bullet" functions for "Rich Text Content Control" after "Yes, Starting Enforcing Protection" is turned on.

    Currently, the "Bullet" and "Numbering" functions are turned off for "Rich Text Content Control" after "Restrict Editing" > "Filling in forms" > "Yes, Start Enforcing Protection" is turned on. It would be good for "Bullet" and "Numbering" functions to be turned on when "Restrict Editing" > "Filling in forms" is turned on to allow users to do a little bit of formatting and organizing of their entry into a "Rich Text Content Control" when "Filling in forms" is turned on.

  2. Anchor "Rich text Content Control after "Yes, Start Enforcing Protection" is turned on.

    Currently, after setting the "Rich text Content Control" at the right indentation, when I press the Backspace button, the Control will move back to the edge of the left margin rather than stay at the indentation. This happens even after "Restrict Editing" > "Filling in forms" > "Yes Start Enforcing Protection" is turned on. It would be good if the Control will stay at the set indentation no matter how many times "Backspace" is pressed.

  3. What is Word Online and why is it opening the pdf's in my online Outlook when I preview them?

    I don't even know what Word Online is, but when I want to preview a pdf attachment before sending it out, it seems to open in Word Online. Don't know why. Oh, well.

  5. Full screen view in yammer.

    Inside Yammer, there should be an option to view the document (Word, powerpoint, excel, pdf) fullscreen, right now, the window is very small and as a user I have to scroll vertically and horizontally to read the whole document. This is particularly difficult on long documents and presentations.

  13. Improve Download Options?

    There should be various options to download from in a format, such as PDF file or DOC file and a user should pick what they want, therefore it would be easier to pick from and download.

  14. Support legacy file formats.

    I need to open and convert legacy file formats (Word for OS/2 among others). The format code has been frozen for a couple decades now, and it's not hard to support.

  18. It would be nice to have the availability to be notified by email when comments or edits are made.

    When there are group edits happening, I have no idea when edits are being made because I have to ability to have Word notify me when a change is made. It would be nice to get an email
