      • TODO:Don't forget to do ...

        In some IDE there is the TODO functionality: it reminds you that you have a job to do in a specific document's area. I would like this feature to be implemented in Word, because quite often I forget to write something. We can think that it's like a post-it in your Word's project in which you can take notes about what and how you have to write in the document

        • Default Font

          It would be nice if in settings you could set a certain font as your default instead of Calibri. So every time you created a new doc it would be the default font and not always Calibri.

          • Allow Save As multiple formats

            I often want to output a PDF from my document. After I have Saved As a PDF, I make changes to the word document but when I save the Word document, I have to go back and Save As the PDF!

            I should be able to multi-select formats once, so that when I Save, it generates all selected formats. Why do I have to choose one at a time?

            • Read aloud in other than English language

              Only 5.85% of population is "reading and writing" in English, so Im asking you to get BIG focus to get functional Windows 8.1 Operating System Language Pack + Word 2016 Read aloud combination for proofing&reading the text in Word 2016 in all major languages including Finnish.

              Your action to get this task on the development list would be very much alligned with your own strategy and also with United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRDP).

              ALTOUGH the United States of the America has still not ratified the convention while Angola, Tanzania and other 3rd world countires…

              • Grammar Suggestions

                Word should have an option for the user to add or delete something to its grammar rules. Adding new words to the dictionary is so useful and it would be great if the user could even choose "don't tell me if Word thinks this is wrong" because it's very annoying when Word is wrong and there's nothing you can do to correct it or make the highlighting go away

                • MLA 8th Edition Template

                  Colleges and high schools use both MLA and APA as their cornerstones when it comes to academic writing, and, as MLA 8th Edition has been out for nearly a year now, most lecturers are now using its formatting, so, for the dependent writer who does not know how to create a citation by hand, an updated MLA template that goes by the 8th Edition's standards would most likely be considered very useful as students and academics would not have to go out of their way to learn 8th Edition and then manually incorporate it as they have to currently.

                  • Add backward compatibility for Unicode fonts with PUA code points

                    As described on the following page: http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?site_id=nrsi&id=VendorUseOfPUA#14086407

                    Earlier versions of MS Word and supported Unicode fonts with Private Use Area code points. This allowed Thai, Hebrew and Arabic users to use fonts that were created with the old Unicode standard until Word 2010.

                    From Word 2013 onward, the rendering engine has been modified, and Word does not display the glyphs of fonts using PUA code points.

                    Documents created with these fonts are rendered with the system default font, but are printed with the correct glyphs.

                    For designers, consumers, businesses, schools and countless others, this means that they cannot use thousands…

                    • Get back offline help in Office 2016

                      Yesterday I was writing Excel formulas while traveling, needed some help about the functions, and had the really bad surprise to discover that Office 2016 has no offline help anymore. This is a real pity. There are so many places where you simply can't be online. And there are people who can't afford it because mobile data is just too expensive. What's the next step, will I need to be connected to the Internet to save a document to my own hard drive, or simply to startup Word? I'm kind of tempted to downgrade to Office 2013.

                      • turn a caps lock sentence into normal text

                        when i type i sometimes forget that caps lock is on, so if would be able to highlight the text (like i would do when i copy) and press the caps button and it would turn my caps lock mistake into normal text, i'll be neat :)

                        • Fix a bug when removing one content control two content controls are deleted

                          When two content controls are nested directly within each other without any character between them, and you remove the inner content control (using the context menu) then the outer content control is deleted as well, which is just a bug that is pretty nasty in our use cases. Can you please fix this in Office 2016 Udpates and further versions?

                              • "Legal-style numbering" for captions

                                In the Define New Multilevel List dialog, if Level 1 numbering is I, II, III (roman numerals), you can check a box for "Legal style numbering," the result of which is to render I, II, III as 1, 2, 3 in lower-level styles. But in captions (figure, table, equation), if you use the "Include chapter number" option with Heading 1 as the heading to provide the "chapter number," you are stuck with I.1, I.2, II.1, II.2, etc. There should be an option, similar to the "legal-style numbering" option for multilevel lists, that would permit using Arabic numbering in captions even…

                                        • Reduce wasted space in the styles panel of the ribbon

                                          The styles panel currently only fits five styles on my screen because there is a lot of white space above each line. There could easily fit 10 different styles if this white space was removed. It's time consuming to scroll up and down looking for the right style.
