  1. Search by page

    I work a lot with Microsoft Office and have used many versions since the earliest versions of office, now on Office 365 and though there has been many improvements over the years there is one thing I would like to see added to see added to office, I would like to see a search by page number option like when you at in Adobe that it displays page number at the top and allows you to enter a specific page number to go straight to it, or the option to bookmark pages so that when you open a document with…

  3. Allow reorganisation of styles

    Allow the styles in the ribbon to be re-organised so the ones I use the most are the ones that don't require additional clicks in order to use.

  6. The German spell checker wants to change "darüber hinausgehende"

    The German spell checker wants to correct "darüber hinausgehende" to "darüber hinausgehende" - which is wrong - or at least poor style. See: http://www.duden.de/rechtschreibung/darueber_hinausgehend

  7. Fix the "go to next page" bug in Word 2016, portrait view (tablet PC), Print Layout

    Word 2016 - When in portrait orientation in print layout view on a tablet pc, the "go to next page" button doesn't scroll all the way to the top of the next page. It leaves a significant portion of the previous page visible at the top of the window.

    Steps to replicate the bug: Add the "go to next page" button to the quick access toolbar. Create/open a multi-page word document. While in landscape mode on your tablet PC, try clicking the go to previous/next page buttons. Your cursor/view will scroll (as expected) to the top of the next page.…

  8. Common Styles

    Styles should be common to Outlook emails and Word documents. If I create a Style in Word, it should also be available in Outlook.

  9. There is Bug in Auto-correction

    Hi,
    I encountered a Bug in auto correct of latest version office. Whenever I write "according to" it suggests me to write "per" But misses out "as". The word suggested should be "as per".
    I hope this is a bug else accept my *poker face* apologies.

  10. Add the search and find feature back for a specific word in office 365 and word 2016/2017

    In windows 7 I used Microsoft word and constantly used the search and find tool to find specific words, sentences and phrases in a word document. I write my stories and other specific documents and I constantly used it but now in Microsoft office 365 and word 2016 you are not able to use this feature or if it is there it is very difficult to find. Please consider putting the search and find tool back in. Other people have also complained about it not being available. Every windows 7 tip and trick you offered DOES not work for me…

  11. [BUG] Issue with Introductory Phrase Proofing

    In the sentence:

    I ate food three days ago.

    Word considers "three days ago" an introductory phrase, even though it's at the end of the sentence, and says I should put a comma after it ("I ate food three days ago,.").

    This is just one of many issues I've had with proofing but its the most obvious because the suggested fix is terrible and it's also probably very common.

  15. Add text reflow option when pasting from PDF

    Please add a feature that will allow users to reflow the text after pasting from a PDF. It's tiresome to cleanup, especially when so many words become split at the end of a line. Try to respace it the normal way, and it deletes part of the word, so you have to show hidden characters and manually fix it. Pease create a fix for this in Word.

  16. missing languages

    In the Word File Options, language page, there is the possibility to add languages. In the list one finds: "Korean, Kyrgyz, Lao, Latin, Latvian..."
    when choosing "Latin", and clicking on Add, it puts Latin on the list of editing langauges, but with the mention "not installed". When clicking on the link, ita sends to an internet page
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Language-Accessory-Pack-for-Office-2016-82ee1236-0f9a-45ee-9c72-05b026ee809f?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US
    On that page the step one "which langauge do you need?" does NOT have Latin...
    The list has "Korean, Kyrgyz, Latvian..."
    That is already two missing languages... How can one install them?

  19. Importing enhanced meta file graphics from clipboard - problems with character spacing of text

    Importing a graphic with text, even a simple text box, from Powerpoint to Word 2016 using the clipboard (paste, content, enhanced meta file) shows non equal character spacing of the text in Word. Clipboard content looks still ok. No problems in Word 2010.

  20. InfoPath Features in Word

    I know that the InfoPath program is going out but it would be nice if you could add this feature within Word. For example make it a tab that you can activate (such as Developer Mode) or a pluggin that can be added.

    I really like InfoPath and use it extensively so I am sad to see it go. But at least allow me to create and "online" document or SharePoint document there.
