  2. 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.

    ■Title(件名):

    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…

  7. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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)

  14. Please disable pop-up balloons related to tracked changes in Online Word

    In Online Word, when the cursor passes over a tracked change, a giant annoying pop-up balloon takes over (contains the user's name, date of the change and what the change was). In a collaborative document with myriad tracked changes, it's impossible to navigate with all these balloons popping up all over the place. PLEASE give us an option to disable these pop-ups in Online Word. Thank you!

  15. 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.

  16. Adding More Content Controls for the "Populate a Microsoft Word template" Connector

    Add more content control for the Populate a Microsoft Word template connector that is utilized in power automate.

    Rich Text Content Control

    Legacy form controls

    These are the current limitations, would be nice if they expanded upon them.

  17. putting the user’s identity into the Word program

    putting the user’s identity into the Word program, so that files are saved and the ability to share with friends, so it becomes the best program to save files and share with friends. It can also be opened anywhere from the computer and phone, in the event of a malfunction or defect in the computer, our files can be returned by opening an identity The user is from another computer. Another idea is to place brackets () for the margins and the footnote within the settings, because magazines and books require this when they are placed it takes time.

  19. Add option to email a hard copy of document

    "Share" only has option "Send link". Please add option "Send a copy", with choices "Word document" and "PDF".
    Without the option to send a hard copy of document, Google Docs is much better. It has possibility not only to share a link, but also to email the document as PDF, RTF, HTML, Word or TXT attachment.
