  1. Add the automatic spaces back to the times symbol in equation editor.

    Up until a few weeks ago, there has always been automatic spacing around all operators in equation editor. After a recent 2017 update, the times multiplication symbol no longer automatically spaces properly. All other operators continue to automatically space. This automatic spacing for the times symbol still exists in PPT and Excel, just not Word for Windows or Word for Mac. It looks like a glitch that went out in the last update.

      • 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?

              • 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.

                • Improve the "ignore' feature in the spell checker.

                  When I tell the program to ignore a phrase or a word, I want it to ignore it the next time I open the document. Thanks.

                    • 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

                      • 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

                        • Inline MathType equations appear raised above the baseline in Microsoft Word

                          Inline MathType equations appear raised above the baseline in Microsoft Word.
                          Issue: (from website of MathType company)
                          Once a saved file that contains a MathType equation at the end of a line has been re-opened in Microsoft Word, the Character Spacing Position properties will have been set to "Lowered" thus causing the baseline to shift downward relative to the surrounding text. This occurs when saving the file as a .docx format (does not occur on files saved as .doc format).

                          Many users and I are using MathType and encounter the above problem. It is really inconvenient for people working with…

                          • 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.

                              • Formatting symbol colours

                                While the formatting symbols (¶) provide a lot of information, they contrast very poorly with the text, and I end up using them less than I would like as a result. It would be very helpful if these could be grey for instance, or if a custom colour could be set.

                                  • 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 :)
