  4. Correct Persian Multilevel list and numbering

    Multilevel list numbering in Persian shows an incorrect sequence of numbers. however the same numbering sequence is correct in any Arabic language.

  5. Add Language Papiamento

    I am currently in a position in which I have O365 in my portfolio to sell here on the island of Aruba. The local language is Papiamento and is used in many news articles. Next to that it is a language given at certain school of which the number will increase in the coming years. That means more individuals will be using Word processing on a daily basis to create documents in Papiamento.

    Currently I cannot sell O365 to many clients because the language is taken out of the language package. It is still available in Word 2010 and hence…

  7. Add 'Allow the following words to start with lowercase letters at the beginning of a sentence' in Office applications

    Many 'cool' brands these days use names that don't use capital letters at the beginning of the word. Please add an option to 'Allow the following words to start with lowercase letters at the beginning of a sentence' in Office applications so that they don't have to be repeatedly corrected over, and over, and over again.

  10. Improve performance for large documents

    I have a Word document with lots of reference material in it, admittedly it is quite large, and if I were starting this document again, I would not use Word. However, it used to work absolutely fine until the business updated to Office 365. It now takes Word about 5 minutes to open the document, during which time the window alternates between blank, black, and showing the initial page of the document.

    The document lives on my local disk, in a folder which is managed by OneDrive. The file size is 2.8 MB, and it is currently 353 pages long.

  11. Spell Check no longer limits itself to selected (highlighted) text

    A recent update changed Spell Check to something almost unrecognizable. Specifically, the ability to spell check selected parts of the document were lost. I don't know if I am missing something or not, but the practice of installing updates unexpectedly and without permission should stop.

  13. Font Management

    When I use word, there are 3 million fonts that I NEVER use and hiding them in fonts settings does not remove them from their listing so I have to scroll through this obscenely long list every time I want to change fonts. At the very least they should allow one to prioritize certain fonts so that they are at the top of the list -- sort of like recently used fonts except that it would list fonts that I have not recently used but are among my preferred fonts. It would be nice if they could have a two…

  14. Commenting is sluggish

    When commenting on larger documents, 40+ pages, 12-14 comments at the very least, Word seems to be heavily impacted performance-wise.
    But PC performance in several instances/tests see much less use of resources. Seems to be a limitation of the application and not resources available.

  16. Beeline Reader

    Please offer the Beeline Reader format on MS Word. Having this available on Word would be a great help for students and professionals who have to read long documents on a daily basis. Beeline also really helps people with disabilities like dyslexia that make reading very difficult.

    If the United Nations and Stanford have seen fit to honor Beeline, perhaps it's time for MS to make this available in Word? In the meantime, I'll just keep uploading my Word docs to Google Docs, where I can read them in BeeLine format...wish I could do it in Word though!

  17. Include content of formulas in search function

    The search function does not find strings that are part of formulas. For example, when I use a variable "ABC" in a formula, searching for "ABC" does not find this occurrence. Please add this functionality.

  19. Please correct Tab key functionality when Text Direction is set to Right-to-Left for Persian/Farsi typing in a table

    In MS Word 2013 I created a Persian/Farsi table and therefore set the Text Direction to Right-to-Left for Persian/Farsi. When typing in the table pressing the Tab key will take me to the cell to the right of the current cell; while it should take me to the cell to the left of the current cell. This is very annoying and disruptive. Please rectify. Thank you for your great product.

  20. Comment footnotes

    I should be able to put a comment on a footnote. If I need someone to look over a footnote, I have to either put a comment in the body text or highlight the section of the footnote manually.
