  1. Improve Highlighting

    Make the full spectrum of colors that are available in Shading also available in Highlighting. I often use Highlighting to mark important or unusual text streams and I would like to search for particular colors of Highlighting .

  2. Bring back "classic" text boundaries

    Yes, we've been told that the display of text boundaries in Word 2013 (and I assume 2016 as well) is the result of the new layout engine, that the old text boundaries were really a "mistake" and should not have been relied upon, but thousands of users did rely on them and prefer them. If this idea receives a large number of votes, perhaps it will create a groundswell.

  3. Shortcut for (),'',"",{},[],-,+, and also for comma (,).

    Ctrl B is used for bold, Ctrl X is for cut and so on......
    In the same way there should be short cut for putting inverted commas, brackets and so on....
    If user selects a group of words and presses Ctrl + 0 then the brackets for selected values should be inserted. Same thing for inverted commas, commas, hyphens, + ans - signs,

  4. Allow "All Markup" as a default

    Currently, Word opens documents featuring Track Changes in "Simple Markup" by default. Those of us who work with Track Changes for a living need to change every individual file to "All Markup." This gets extremely vexing. Please install a setting that will let us change the default.
