  1. Provide Show All Revisions and Show No Revisions as single commands so that they can be added to the Quick Access toolbar

    Allow the Show All Revisions and Show No Revisions as single commands so that they can be added to the Quick Access toolbar - there's nothing worse than having a drop down on Quick Access toolbar (ie, extra clicking - NOT 'Quick') when you want to just toggle between views quickly

  3. double arrow symbol with double label--one above double arrow; one below double arrow

    Writing chemical equation sometimes require a double arrow (preferably with left-to-right arrow on top) with each arrow having a customizable label name. The top arrow label should be above the double arrow and the bottom arrow label should be below the double arrow. It is important that the whole system fit on one line. IF NECESSARY for spacing reasons, harpoons could be substituted for arrows but (to me) that is less desirable.

  5. Allow task panes to be docked at the bottom of the screen.

    Currently, Task Panes (like the Styles pane) can only be docked to the side of the screen.
    If you have a monitor turned into portrait format, for ease of working on Word documents, it is really essential that any Task Panes you want to use are docked at the bottom.
    Simply dragging an undocked Task Pane to the bottom of the screen and then adjusting the main Word window to fit above it is onerous and often results in the Task Pane jumping around if you start to edit near the bottom of the Main Word window.

  6. 想做一些传统古文的书,竖版毛笔字很美,但无法设置字体大小,可能是固定显示字数的限制,想显示小初或一号字的大小,这样会比较饱满,无耐无法设置,有没有什么插件,我其它变通的方法. 建议:自定义行数和列数,

    想做一些传统古文的书,竖版毛笔字很美,但无法设置字体大小,可能是固定显示字数的限制,想显示小初或一号字的大小,这样会比较饱满,无耐无法设置,有没有什么插件,我其它变通的方法.

    建议:自定义行数和列数,方便设置显示大字体的大小,在不同的纸张A4,B5,横显示和列显示,有时变成 横版,这一个也是一个大缺点。外框可以显示粗的边框。

  10. Smart @mention in word suggesting people @mentioned first

    @mention is a very useful for reviewing and sharing documents I'm collaborating on.

    Today when I start to type @mention it will search the directory for matches across the company regardless of existing people that have already been @mentioned.

    It's highly likely if I've @mentioned a name and start to type a similar name that it's the same person, based on that it would be better if Word first offered suggestions starting with existing people you've @mentioned in the document as you type and continue to make recommendations from the rest of the directory if you ignore the initial recommendations…

  14. Return the "Read Aloud" feature--it is an essential feature for editors.

    The "Read Aloud" feature has been removed from Word for some unknown reason. It is essential for editors who are working with large manuscripts. The alternate "Speak" feature is inadequate for editing purposes.

  16. For any gramatical issues, create exceptions (English is full of exceptions)

    The grammar for Word is quite good, however I've found an exception that the developers have not included. In the following sentence: "Since the level of measurement we collected is quantative..", Word wants to change this to "Since the level of measurement, we collected is quantative..."

  19. Read Out Loud - Flag a edit position

    In read out loud option, while listening, rather than stopping and starting to make an edit, could you put a indicator so we can return back to it to correct.

  20. let user chose whether to use the format of copied text or not

    the word basically copies the format of text to while coping the text and when we we paste the text it paste the text according to copied format but sometime the format of not good or you wan to chose a different format for different parts may not seem difficult for small document but for large document this will be hectic so it is better to let user chose which format he likes
