  4. Word for Mac (2016 + newest updates)

    Each time the Word file autosaves itself or saves, the font (times new roman) partically changes into helvetica. This occurs often, not every time. The new Mac OS installation might affect this.

    Also, the file saving sometimes has an identity issue. It tries to save it into "com.microsoft.Word" folder -- temporary folder???-- and if I do, the original file disappears--- THIS IS a HUGE SISSUE. (becuase the file is lost)>

  12. Easy way to move & save documents directly into shared files created by others.

    My colleague has shared a file with me, I need to be able to move documents directly into it from my one-drive. At the moment I can only move documents into files I have created.

  13. I would like to be able to use the full product online as on the paid offline version.

    I'd be willing to pay for it and it would be more competitive with google docs-which sucks compared to the offline version of Word.

  14. Integrate Cortana speech recognition into Office. The legacy Windows speech to text engine is unusable.

    Cortana is hyper-fast and hyper-accurate compared to the existing Windows speech to text system. At least append a notepad function onto Cortana so that spoken content can be captured and copied and pasted to another document.

  16. Optional hyphenations add ¬ into text when pasting into another app and cause terrible problems

    When copying text from Word with optional hyphenations and pasting into ALMOST ANY OTHER APPLICATION adds characters into the text which usually look like this: ¬ this causes unexpected typo issues and massive problems for any unsuspecting user.
    Check this link where it is discussed: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeword-msowinother/copy-and-paste-from-word-turns-hyphens-into-not/2583de1b-1768-4cf9-8c5c-2549219ca80b

    Basically optional hyphenations are horrible things that suddenly turn into non-hidden, actual characters in the midd¬le of wor¬ds and really screw thin¬gs up.
    I want to get this recognised as a bug and get it fixed.

  17. Provide a more thoughtful and useful autosave

    I think word online should improve auto save, after accidentally closing word online I have lost all my edits and now hate word online and will forever use google docs because the auto save there works.

  19. Paste equations as MathML even if nearby text is selected

    I know I can select a equation, copy it, and paste to plain-text editor as MathML if I make a change to Equation Editor options.

    But it won't work if I selected other text that is not part of any equation.

    I recommend to make equation as MathML, even if nearby text is selected.

  20. Provide details about why an error happened opening a file

    Provide details about why an error happened opening a file. The docx file didn't open, but gave no clue as to why.
