Yeah I totally agree in fact I'm shocked that Office hasn't updated the MLA format already!!!

Please, update MLA support.
Very important for college students. Significant change from MLA 7 to MLA 8.
Need 8th edition
This was brought to your attention in August. It's now February and I have not seen support for it. What gives?

Colleges and high schools use both MLA and APA as their cornerstones when it comes to academic writing, and, as MLA 8th Edition has been out for nearly a year now, most lecturers are now using its formatting, so, for the dependent writer who does not know how to create a citation by hand, an updated MLA template that goes by the 8th Edition's standards would most likely be considered very useful as students and academics would not have to go out of their way to learn 8th Edition and then manually incorporate it as they have to currently.
I know this would be helpful for all students. Up to date citations and bibliographies would ensure that students are able to properly cite their sources. Especially since updates to citations are done and most students will not search for the newest version of the citation. This will help students from being blindsided about how to cite. Also, I knew when Microsoft Office was up to date on all citation formats as soon as they came out and used them for this purpose. Now, it takes a lot of time to ensure all my sources are properly formatted while writing several research papers.

MLA recenty released the 8th edition of their style guide, but Word is still using the 7th edition. This is the most used style for high school and some college courses and the new academic year is already here!
