  1. Request to add dark gray theme office 2013 to office 2019 with new name

    Hello

    I like dark gray theme in Office 2013, but there isn't in office 2019. Dark gray theme in office 2016 isn't beauty and that is different.

    I just like this theme and that's why I can't install office 2019 (like office 2016)

    Please add exactly this theme to office 2019. (Exactly the same colors and the same theme)

    Please send this to developers because i do not know.

    Thank you

    • Proportional size for furigana/ruby text

      If you try to change the font size of a word whit furigana, the furigana wo'nt adapt to the new size. This need to be fixed. Also, users should be able to automatically display furigana in more than a few paragraphs.

      • Fix user interface regarding document metadata entry

        In Word 2016, the "Save As" window displays three metadata fields under the "Save as type" field: Author, Tags, and Title. However, if that window isn't sized correctly, the Title field drops off. It'd be great if those options scaled with the window size, so that none of them become hidden by too small of a window.
        Thank you.

          • Under Style, include Strayer University Writing Standards

            STRAYER UNIVERSITY WRITING STANDARDS INFORMATION
            Do you wonder why such a big deal is made over citations, references, and formatting? These areas are important because they ensure that your documents are credible and make a good first impression on readers.

            What are Strayer Writing Standards (SWS) and how will they help me?

            Audiences have different requirements for formatting and style guides that they ask you to follow. While the details change from format to format, one aspect remains consistent: formatting guidelines are designed so people write ethically (giving credit to others where credit is due) and professionally (making sure documents…

                    • Portuguese date format in uppercase or sentence case also

                      Portuguese date format used in office products only shows up as dez, with no options for Dez or DEZ. Recommend inclusion of more formats.

                        • The ink editor would be cool if it had more options.

                          The ink editor would be more useful if it had the ability to add punctuation marks- like adding a comma where there should be one.

                          Also, as far as spelling goes- for those words that the spelling checker doesn't catch, it would be nice to be able to delete or add single letters rather than whole words.

                          I will probably not be using this feature as it is; it seems like it is more trouble than it's worth right now and doesn't have the features I need. However, if this feature is expanded it would make my life (as well…

                                  Word should have a permanent taskbaar icon that opens a new document page without maximizing anything else.A desktop icon does this, but if it is covered you have to click a document on the tadkbar and then click "Word" on a list.

                                  In other words, simply have a permanent icon on the taskbar that opens and maximizes a new Word document page and does noyhing else.

                                      Please allow all Office apps to use Autosave with Dropbox and other cloud storage providers. Autosave with local storage would be great too. I have too many performance issues with OneDrive and end up have sync issues.

                                      • I would like to have a boolean search function.

                                        When control F is done, one should be able to get something like Excel filter options

                                          draw in-app with unlimited time and tools. also add a line-maker so you can type on a line and in boxes. you should also add in app signatures.
