  1. Before you send out updates, please test them so see if they remove product keys from Office 2016 Professional Plus.

    Your most recent update for Windows 10, (October 2020) keeps on removing my Office 2016 Professional Plus Product Key. It claims that my Product is unlicensed. Totally wrong, I don't need to buy a new product key until December 30th 2020. So please sort out your glitches first. So it doesn't cause major problems for many of us.

  3. Please first of all fix this suggestion web page itself

    When we post any story it stuck on posting progress animation forever. we are unable to understand that story posted or not. but fortunately it gets posted and when we reload page to cancel it then suddenly post appears on story section.

    and sometime it does not sticks. when I tried to post this story after two problematic story it suddenly worked fine.

  6. Okay my suggestion is, to make more templates, to create social media posts

    What i mean is, templates to make social media posts, such as canva, that would probably increase Microsoft word user.

  8. Tab for each document, but NOT like Excel has Worksheets at the bottom left.

    Tab inside the application window of Office applications that are relevant, including Microsoft Office Excel and Word. There would be another X or set of X's (signifying 'close') in the inner upper right, not replacing 'close' X for the application itself.

    Could possibly be much more convenient that switch between application windows of the same application to switch documents.

  9. Language selection

    am thinking you could make Word automatically detect language between UK and US English. Once detected from a few sentences that for instance mention US cities, a pop up shows up asking the user to confirm that they want to use US English. having to manually change the language is a bit tiring.
    Otherwise, nothing better than your software that's for sure.

  12. Please fix the bug in MS Word that doesn't allow you to "Save As" any more.

    When I open a file that I want to save as a new file to a folder in OneDrive, I get an error message when I try to save it that says, "This is not a valid file name," even though I'm naming it properly. This is very annoying because the workaround is to go into the File Explorer, copy the file, paste it to the new location, and rename it there. Please fix this.

  13. Option for specific word counts (including stems)

    When you highlight and right-click a word, a count of how many times you've used that word appears in the drop-down box. It also accounts for stems so words like "stops, stop, stopping and stopped" are all in the same count

  14. The Word editor does not check for matching quote marks.

    If a sentence starts with a quote mark but there is no closing mark, the editor will not catch it. This is a problem for authors who use a lot of quotes.

  15. Give us optional outline levels (which ARE useful) without the collapse-option (which is not only useless but dangerous).

    I like the outline levels, and use them a lot. But the triangle-collapse is dangerous, as others have written. I would like to have the outline levels kept, but get rid of the collapse. It can unintentionally collapse PAGES of text!

  17. MS Word MESSAGE SAYS: open in another application. But its not!

    How about telling me HOW to close a document that is actually NOT open. I'm at a complete LOSS as to what to do next with this very important document. HELP, HELP, HELP!!!

  19. Calendar - Better visibility of accept / decline

    Using both Outlook and Teams Calendar, it takes too many clicks to see if an appointment has been accepted or declined. Bring this information to the forefront, please.

  20. Polices pour dyslexiques

    Bonjour, ça serait bien d'avoir une ou des polices pour dyslexiques comme OpenDyslexic. Celle-ci s'affiche d'ailleurs mal sur Excel (mais très bien sur Publisher).
