  1. Pasting pictures is a nightmare

    Why can't I just put the picture where I want? This is so easy on powerpoint. Word is IMPOSSIBLE. It jacks up my formatting every single time and my cursor gets lost every time

    1) Have an option to paste picture similar to powerpoint
    2) If I double click somewhere, THAT'S WERE THE CURSOR SHOULD BE....

    AHHHHHHH - I have wasted SO much of my life battling format. Every major paper I wrote in college took twice as long (LITERALLY) because formatting in word sucked

  5. work station tap

    it is a tap that I can put whatever feature I want. for example, I want to be able to use some feature from insert, design and review but i don't want to jump between them all the time. I want to add them to my work station tap so that I save a lot of time and energy. Thank you

  8. Double justify/alignment on a line

    I want to see a double justify/alignment so I can place my curser within a line and anything to the left of the curser justifies / aligns to the left margin and anything to the right of the curser justifies to the right [thus leaving spaces in the middle portion] none of the current alignment methods provide this option which is important to me

  10. paste value word

    Paste without formatting keyboard shortcut - most apps just use Ctrl-Shift-V. Would be nice if Office supports it too, instead of pasting and then choosing to ignore formatting.

  11. Allow Word window behavior to not inheirit properties

    I use two different word docs. One requires a wide window and one a narrow window. I am referring to the outer boundaries of the window when it opens. But also in one doc I use the "find" command and in the other one I don't need it. It appears these properties (window frame, options open) inherit. I am asking for individual docs to open in the size and options I leave them in. This could be an option in Settings.

  12. Navigating through Word documents is extremely cumbersome. To go back to the list of documents, there's no way simply to click the back arr

    Navigating through Word documents is extremely cumbersome. The back arrow is greyed out, so that eliminates that simple possibility, leaving the user to have to go back to File, close the document, then click on Open, then click on Browse, only to find that the marker in the list has gone back to the top, meaning that the user now has to find the next document. This makes no sense. When one wants to go from on document to another, one ought to be able simply to click on the back arrow, taking the user back to the list from…

  13. table insertion menu should be logical

    In Word Online, the Table insertion commands are listed in a sequence, but when I go to click on them, it would be nice if they were arranged logically (e.g., insert left button placed on left, etc.)

  15. Add Set to Background Feature to Microsoft Word

    With distance learning, teachers are using the snipping tool for their curriculum that is not downloadable. They snip the assignment and paste into a Word document. This is great except that students can and frequently do accidentally delete the snip from the Word document. Set to the Background is a rt click feature in Powerpoint and One Note. We need it also to be a feature in Word. With set to the background, students can use the drawing tools to complete the worksheet/assignment without accidentally deleting the snip for the document.

    This is needed ASAP given COVID and students learning…

  17. INSERT EQUATION

    When I use Insert Equation dialog, the equation is editable in Microsoft word only, this poses a lot of challenges when moving word content to publisher or InDesign.

  18. Footnote/Endnote

    It'd be great if there was an option to layout footnotes and endnotes not only vertically, but also horizontally (to save space on a page). Example: You create a handout, giving lots of very brief vocab-translations in the footnotes which are now listed vertically. You could fit in many more items on a page if a horizontal mode was avaliable.
