  2. Add videos, GIFS or maybe interactive videos

    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

  3. Some Microsoft Design idiot just changed the Apostrophes and Quotes to be Backwards in Office 365

    As of today, in Office, working on crucial documents, Microsoft has reversed apostrophes and quotes to be backwards and needs to fix this back to normal immediately!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    On with support, I'm told there is NO FIX for this without Microsoft Design engineering fixing it. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Enable rich formatting (bullets, bold, italic, etc.) within Comments in Word for the web

    Using formatting (bullets, bold, italic, etc) is possible within Comments in a desktop version of Word. But unfortunately not in Word for the web.

    This is the only reason that I can not review students' assignments in Word for the Web. So would be great if this could be added!

  6. End on this page checkbox when embedding

    It would be convenient to embed only part of a document, including a "start on this page" which already exists and an "end on this page" which does not.

  12. Add more functions to Word on the web, such as diagonal lines, word wrapping and insertion of text boxes

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Web 用 Word の斜め罫線、折り返し表示、テキスト ボックス挿入の機能拡充希望
    Add more functions to Word on the web, such as diagonal lines, word wrapping and insertion of text boxes


    ■Description(内容):
    Web 用 Word では、Word クライアント アプリと異なり様々な機能制限があり不便。
    特に以下の機能については Web 用 Word でも利用できる機能の拡充を希望します。
    ・ 斜め罫線
    ・ 書式設定 > 配置 > "折り返して全体を表示する"
    ・ 挿入 > テキスト ボックス
    これらが実現するだけで、業務効率は各段に向上します。

    There are a number of restrictions in the web version of Word that differ from the client version.
    In particular, please add the following functions:
    Diagonal ruled lines
    Formatting – Align – Wrap to fit
    Insert – Text Box
    If these were added, it would improve…

  13. Formatting after using auto-numbering

    Now, after auto-numbering, MS Word changes formatting of text to it's own.

    I'd like to see this changed, so I don't have to go into formatting settings to change to formatting that I used before using auto-numbering every time. It really feels a lot of times like MS Word is not user friendly.

  17. Fix the "Your session has expired. Update the page to continue" error

    Hi,
    I have travelled from Sweden to Thailand and can no longer create and use Word Online. I just get the error: Your session has expired. Update the page to continue.

    It doesn't help to update. The error still remains.

    Thanks!

  18. By actually listening to our suggestions

    In 2014, there were already hundreds of people requesting the pages to be splitted just like the Word app. Nothing has changed.
    It looks like you guys really don't care about customer's happiness and loyalty.

    Gonna stick with Drive as long as you guys won't listen to us.

    Same goes with : having dark mode, having the same tabs/options as Word Offline, allowing us to move pictures everywhere on a page, adding a ruler, allowing us to custom fonts, allowing us to make columns, allowing us to insert citations, etc.

    The list is way longer.

  19. Split Word Online in multiple pages (like Microsoft Offline)

    Word Online: one infinite page, pages splitted by a small line, makes it hard to structure your text, have a good document layout, write headnotes and foodnotes, etc.

    Word offline: pages clearly separated by a grey space. Super convenient to edit the document and make a professionnal layout to hand-in (because you know exactly where your text, pictures and graphs are on the page)

  20. PLEASE remove the popup balloon messages that shows who made a change.

    If someone formats a table, then it shows up whenever the cursor is over the table and prevents clicking were I need to be! remove it or option to turn it off.
