  1. SharePoint version and modified date not available with Word Quick Parts

    We really need to show the SharePoint Version as well as the Date of the latest change in a Word document using quick parts.

    The workaround with labels does not work any longer in SharePoint online....

    Also, multiple choice fields or at least calculated columns would be helpful, if they could be shown.

  7. Enable to rename word file versions

    It would be great to have the possiblity to rename versions in the version history. Tags would be great as well.

  8. wdDialogue (example) timeout:=2000

    The above vba syntax displays a wdDialogue box for 2 seconds.
    It would be nice to have a "WaitBar" fill out with colour, or even a wdDialogue Box of my own choosing telling me what is going on while I wait. Humans do not think at the speed of Intel's computer chip-execution of vba-code. Going slowly and waiting to see what Word does can save hours and hours of frustration.

  9. WrapAroundText and HorizontalPosition

    Rows.HorizontalPosition does not behave like stated in the documentation.

    I format a Table in a VBA script with the following steps:

    1: I set the Text Wrapping to None:

    myTable.Rows.WrapAroundText = False
    

    2: I try to set the position of the Table

    myTable.Rows.RelativeHorizontalPosition = wdRelativeHorizontalPositionPage
    
    myTable.Rows.HorizontalPosition = 40

    Now: The positioning I do at 2. should not be working at all, because WrapAroundText is set to False.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/vba/api/word.rows.horizontalposition
    states that " This property doesn't have any effect if the WrapAroundText property is False.".
    BUT, the positioning does happen, while the Text Wrapping is somehow set to "Around".

  11. Enable Header Row Repetition with Text Wrapping set to "Around"

    When creating a table that spans multiple pages, the option "Header Row", where a certain row is defined as a header and repeated on all pages, is not working if the text wrapping option is set to "Around".

    From my point of view this behavior is most likely a bug, as no documentation indicates this as a invalid setting (Also it is possible to set the responsible settings, but the Header Row is simply not repeated).

  14. Copying and pasting OneNote drawing as drawing in Word rather than an image

    When I transfer OneNote notes to Word by copying and pasting, it pastes an image rather than the same drawing format used in Word. Having it paste as a drawing would allow better editing.

  15. Display picture in fullscreen

    Add an option to show picture in full screen or enlarged view from the context menu.
    The picture could pop out of its original position and enlarge itself to the center of the screen darkening the background of the program.
    This functionality would improve readability of small pictures, without editing the original one.

  16. Add most frequent word statistics

    Have a button where the user can count, how frequent he uses words. The words are therefore highlighted in a certain color (red means used more often, green means used not so often). And an excel can be generated, which words are the most commonly used ones. Then the used has the possibility to jump through the words and replace them with synonyms (combind the replace feature with the synonyms-feature)

  19. Changes to the Automatic Editor Scans

    When the Editor Features scans a paragraph to suggest changes to the writer's verbiage it should scan the entire phrase or paragraph to examine the rightness of its suggestion. I the following sentence it suggested replacing 'Dram' with 'Dream' which makes no sense at all.

    "Shaun, I’ll have a dram of your father’s fine ‘uisge-beatha na h-Alba’ . . . the water of life, as will my son. Christopher."

  20. Change numerous amounts of the same work at once

    for example, if we use the word "and" and want to change it to "&"

    we should have the option to highlight where we've used that word all at once and change it to to the preferred word. instead of having to go through the entire document and change it individually.

    because doing it one by one leaves you with more of a chance of accidentally not realizing that you haven't changed the word in one section
