  5. Bring back Replace All in Spellcheck

    The current "change all" option does not retain the entries for other documents, nor for new documents. It used to automatically change misspelled words as you type and no longer does

  7. Bring back Word 2007 Auto Complete!

    Auto Complete was one of the best features that hasn't had a good replacement. Quick Parts is no help

  8. return to "old" version of Word spell checker "change all" settings

    Current Word 2016 "change all" does not automatically replace as you type what you already did "change all" settings, nor does it save your customized settings

  9. I would like a Word document format specifcially for use in producing a PDF document without page breaks for tablet reading.

    Many documents are now read on tablets. Standard page views are difficult to read. A new tablet template is needed with an appropriate page width, standard test size, but without page breaks to permit docs to converted into PDFs for reading by scrolling on a table. The lack of page breaks enables figures and tables to be inserted where appropriate without trying to manage page breaks.

  10. Allow autocorrect to be turned off for selected sections

    It's really annoying when all the squiggly lines keep coming up in my bibliography, footnotes, quoted text etc. Like I DIDN'T WRITE IT, I'M REFERENCING, LEAVE ME ALONE!! Autocorrect is useful at certain points, like in writing my own paragraphs, so I don't want to turn it off completely; however, when I'm just trying to write a Latin binomial name for biology, or writing someone's username when referencing, or quoting directly, it's extremely annoying.

  12. I wish someone would set a switch for Word 2010 before updating W10. I have to go thru a rigamarole after after each system update.

  17. Custom Ribbon doesn't show in Normal.dotm in Templates

    Until a release of Office 365 in February custom ribbons always showed up when attached to the Normal.dotm in the users Template path. After February any file named Normal.dotm in Templates does not show the ribbon. Change the file name to anything other than Normal.dotm and the ribbon shows up. Move the Normal.dotm to any other folder (i.e. not Templates) and the ribbon shows up.

    I use the Custom UI Editor to create my custom ribbons and this has worked for many years but stopped working with the February release of Office. I’ve tested on a Word 2010 PC and…

  19. Provide the option to print with Simple Markup displayed

    Currently the only two printing options is to have no markup or all markup displayed (tracked changes and comments). My document looks clear and easy to read on screen with Simple Markup selected but there is no way available to print this view.

  20. Please bring Focus View to Office 365 for Windows (2019)

    Focus View is an essential feature that I use on Word for Mac. I would really appreciate it if it could be brought over to Windows. That would really improve my workflow.

    And, Microsoft Office should work best with Microsoft Windows, right? The best features should be on Windows.Thanks!
