  1. Font size

    There is a problem with font size in between office 2013(word2013) and office 2016(word2016) for hindi fonts. If I choose font size 17 for kokila(hindi) in off13 and also for same in off16 then there are aboute 300 words per page in 0ff13 and 200 words per page in off16 for same paper size and same font size.

  3. Page number format in Word 2016

    This suggestion is regarding 'Page number format'. You have given few formats but there is no Gujarati page number format. This will help if new vwersion of Word 2016 carries this format as well.

  5. X-ref like autocad

    Sometimes it is necessary to use the same page like cover of a documents and to fill that with specific value.
    But if this page changes different time it is necessary to modify the document manually. It would be fantastic to create an external reference that will update automatically all the documents.

  6. Colours, flags and MS Office

    Come on MS - insufficient customer service here: http://goo.gl/JX019d

    8% of men and 0.5% of women are colour blind - approx 12 m men in US and 1.5m women is US can't use aspects of MS Word or Outlook because of color issues in recognising such things as flags.
    This needs sorted!
    Here's some scientific background from my world (Medicine) which might get you going, but how about an answer?
    1. Campbell JL, Spalding AJ, Mir FA, Birch J. Doctors and the assessment of clinical photographs - does colour blindness matter? British Journal of General Practice. 1999;49(443):459-61.

  7. web layout

    Could the layout be tied to the type of file loaded. It would be nice if the Web Layout was selected when editing HTML files and Print Layout was selected when viewing a docx file. I believe this was the behavior prior to Office 2016. This setting should be remembered according to the file type.

  8. Auto-generate source information

    Generate source information from a URL or based on ISBN number, this would be much easier than typing all of the information in.

  9. Allow hyperlinks to be mixed case, don't force them to be lowercase

    The hyperlink in my document is
    https://bugreports.xxx/browse/PM-223 yet when I click on it, it goes to
    https://bugreports.xxx/browse/pm-223

    The path part of URLs are case sensitive and while some web servers can be configured to ignore case in the path others don't so why cast them as lowercase?

    This was reported in 2014. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeword-msomac/why-are-googledoc-hyperlinks-being-converted-to/1a90d035-1c86-4b05-a636-c553b87b1247?auth=1

  11. Correct mail merge data connection bug for CSV files

    The following error occurs when linking a mail merge document to a CSV file. After successfully creating the mail merge Word document using the CSV file as the data source I save the mail merge document. When I open it later the SQL dialog appears and asks to link to the correct CSV file. If I say yes an error occurs and Word reports it cannot find the file even though it exists and has not been moved or modified.

    I suggest this bug be fixed for all versions of MS Word

  12. Correct mail merge field name bug

    Insert merge field operates inconsistently in its two modes.
    If you click the icon in the ribbon the Insert Merge Field dialog appears. When there are long field names they are sometimes truncated incorrectly. Inserting them in the document creates errors. I noticed this particularly when multiple field names begin with the same text and mail merge adds numbers to the end to create unique names.
    If you click the drop down arrow at the base of the icon in the ribbon the field names are more often correct as they truncate differently from the dialog box. This is more…

  13. Highlight to Email

    Should be simple to implement, but it would be really nice to have some sort of outlook integration where I can highlight a chunk of text from a document and forward it to my co-workers.

  15. Word 2016: Not readable presentation of AutoText entries in the preview pane

    Microsoft Word 2016 MSO (16.0.7127.1021) 32-Bit
    Not readable presentation of AutoText entries in the preview pane

    Ladies and Gentlemen,
    it is really quite annoying that Office 2016 -Word gives only a very insufficient (not readable) presentation of the AutoText entries in the Preview pane. Word 2002 had already a good presentation of AutoText entries, why Word 2016 not?! If someone has a high number of AutoText entries (e.g. formulas) and want to see some months later whether a certain entry was already designed, he really cannot identify its presentation in the preview pane, even not with a magnifier!
    Please be…

  17. Open bookmark/hyperlink in different window

    When there is an alternate view of the same document open after using the "new window" button, let hyperlinks or bookmarks be opened in the second view.
