  2. Tabs! Tabs! Tabs!

    PLEASE! I do not understand what is so hard about adding tabs to Word Online. There is no way to say that Word online is better than Google Docs when it is missing the most basic of functions

  3. Word Online PDF Export should ask user if markups are to be included

    On the web version of Word, when we go to Export > PDF, it creates a PDF that prints markup content. User should be queried wether he wants tthe markups included.

    BTW It's good to include bookmarks, keep that up.

  5. use templates from organization asset libraries in Word and Excel online

    SharePoint Organization Asset Libraries are a great way to store and use Office templates in Microsoft 365. Sadly they can only be used in PowerPoint Online for some reason. I would like to use them in primarily word online for our E1 and A1 licensed users for creating documents based on corporate templates. We have alot of them, around 60% of our staff are using shared computers or phones and only need to do light editing and document creation, primarily in Word. So why is it possible to use templates from Sharepoint asset libraries in PowerPoint Online and not Word…

  6. A feature to properly remove the white space between pages in Word 2016/365

    I am having a lot of trouble when trying to remove the white space between pages in Word at a low enough zoom. What I want is for Word to display multiple pages side by side in the same screen without showing the white space, but it automatically keeps engaging the “feature” whenever I lower the zoom level and bumping me back to a straight line of pages whenever I try to remove it from the Options menu. Also, the “several pages” option in the Zoom menu doesn’t work at all; I have to use the same option in the…

  7. Add ability to create links using non-standard protocols (e.g. hansoft://)

    Add ability to create links using not only http://, ftp:// or mailto: protocols but also e.g. hansoft://.
    It can really complicate the work when you are adding for example Hansoft link in the document and it's treated as a plain text in web version of Word instead of working URL.

  8. Page seperation on Word online

    I don't understand why there is a dotted line instead of a page separation. I need to see how it will look if I print it off as I am working.

  9. Simple Markup View in Word Online

    Word online now allows Markups to show in Word Online, which is great but you cannot hide the tracked changed while editing the document like in the desktop version.

    The only way to hide Markups and see the final version is to leave editing mode and enter it afterwards again to edit, which takes its time.

  12. improve spell checking

    Dear sir/madam,
    I am writing to inform you about a bug in Microsoft Word. I am using Microsoft word about 6 hours a day and it is the best software for typing. Especially updates are wonderful! Please improve the “spelling and grammar errors check” part. I suggest dividing it into some like formal writing, and informal texts. For instance, you know “gonna” is an informal expression and have been using for informal speaking, therefore it isn’t wrong and the word doesn’t have to underline it as a wrong word.
    I would appreciate it to solve this problem.
    Yours sincerely,
    Amir.H.Zarei

  14. Improve accessible PDF Export to be on par with the Adobe Plug-in

    Since the online Office 365 does not (currently?) allow one to integrate the Adobe Acrobat Plug-In, online users are forced to rely on the less optimal PDF export options.Microsoft's commitment to accessibility can be demonstrated strongly by giving all Office users the power to produce accessible PDFs without having to pay a third-party for a plug-in they may not be able to even use.

  16. Allow the online version of word to work with two or more columns documents

    My collaborators, my students and, I will be very happy if we are able to collaborate online with papers that have a two-column format. I know there is a work around, but the experience is not good.

  18. Avoid automatically resize texts when resize Word windows anytime

    I recommend to be able to continue reading the entire Word while shrinking a Word window without shrinking texts altogether when using One Page (avoid cutting out a window). I rely on that because I make room for other Word windows on my computer monitor.

  20. Increasing limit for uploaded transcribing in Word Online

    Can there be an admin option added somewhere to be able to increase the five hour limit per month for uploaded recordings and uploaded recording size from 200mb?

    Even if this a new add-in that is charged for, the option needs to be available.
