  1. 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

        • Columns

          Please add "Columns" function! It is absolutely a necessity.

          • Fonts: Word Online should offer more fonts

            Word Online has many of the features Microsoft Word itself offers, but Word Online could at least add more fonts to the online version. Other than that, this seems like a complete replica of Word itself(other than a few bugs and no synonym suggestions)!- Nugget

            • Be Google.

              Be Google.

              Problems (only few examples):
              * This is HIGHLY important: A document cannot be stored in MULTIPLE folders. Google solved it with hierarchical labels (tags).
              * Large Google doc (+200 pages) cannot be exported correctly to MS word.
              * The MS Word and Excel online lacks so many important capabilities. I don't want to open the Desktop Word and Excel each time I want to edit the document.
              * Since I have "Edit" credentials, why should I click again to edit, and then wait more till the document opens?
              * I don't see other editor changes in real time.…

              • Make it so it can automatically change to French, Spanish etc. when the language is recognized. Also add Canadian grammar checking too.

                Add a place where you can type in a detect/foreign language so we can use it in all classes. Also have a place where you can switch from american grammar rules to Canadian grammar rules.

                  • The new spell checker is HORRIBLE.

                    Change back to the way the spell checker used to be!

                      • The online version of Office is extremely limited.

                        The online version of Office is extremely limited compared to Google Drive. Google has advanced and it keeps on improving features.
                        It is not smooth at all, it makes my team waste so much time to figure out even the simple settings of it.
                        Microsoft does not keep in mind that in 2019 people do not use installed versions of MS Office. We WORK REAL-TIME ONLINE.
                        MS does not need to reinvent the wheel, just start working with G Suite and take it from there, please.
                        Thanks.

                          • Columns

                            I use word online more and more, the desktop version less and less and yet I find I constantly have to go back to the desktop version for important features missing online. VERY frustrating! There needs to be a way to add columns to a page online. It seems rather ridiculous that it will retain and view that format but does not offer the option to create columns. Please make online more like desktop! Maybe have a basic free version and a paid full online version! Many of us use tablets and phones almost exclusively anymore and need a fully…

                              You should add boarders because it makes your writing look more professional.

                                      • please let us create news letter columns in word online!

                                        I have many documents that have been created in word with 2 to 3 columns. I just started using Word online and am very disappointed that the columns do not convert there! Please make this change.
