  2. Permanently disable "Print Markup" in Word document default setting

    Please create a default setting to permanently disable "Print Markup" which can be set at the file level when saved.

    This setting would also be nice to have for save as PDF.

  4. Word equivalent of workbooks and worksheets

    Excel files are workbooks split into as many worksheets as you need. The same arrangement for Word would allow users to keep multiple documents in a single file. For example, your first worksheet could be a meeting agenda, and the second could be the minutes. Or your first could be a report summary/abstract and the report could then be split into multiple worksheets to aid navigation. This approach would enable far more user friendly files and the storing of multiple related documents in one connected group.

  6. LaTeX module for Word

    If Word had a module that could edit LaTeX documents and convert seamlessly from one format to another, I think, Word would be much more powerful than it is. Moreover, more researchers would use it.

  8. continue search results no pause

    Side navigation: Stop pausing the search results when we made an edit. We need to see the search results so we can click on the next one. Pausing the search causes the results to disappear and we lose our place. We then have to do the search again. When I'm making changes to one term in the document, I end up having to search the same word up to 20 times! This is ridiculous.

  9. TURN OFF THE PROFANITY FILTER ON THE MICROSOFT WORD VOICE DICTATION FEATURE

    I would like the option, as a free thinking adult, to turn off the profanity filter in Microsoft Word Voice dictation feature. I work in a treatment program where patients need to be able to express themselves. Also, some of the filters are silly, for instance the following sentence was changed from:

    "The painting of a naked women was done in the ......."

    to:

    "The painting of a ***** ***** was done in the ......."

    Who decides what is profanity?
    Please allow the user to turn this feature off. Do not decide for me what is profane.

  11. Option to show personal templates by default on launch

    I use personal custom templates extensively in my workflow and would like to see them by default when starting up Word, rather than the generic Office templates.

  16. dictation

    The pop up dictation tool bar at the bottom of the screen is very annoying as it obscures a lot of the screen, including text which may need to be seen. Please make it possible for users to disable it permanently. Just closing or moving it is useless as it reappears every time dictate times out and needs to be restarted (which means very often). It's unnecessary as it's very easy for people who use the feature a lot to put the dictate icon on the quick access toolbar. It has rendered the new version of dictate almost useless

  19. Ability to more easily remove headings, titles, and other things from word count.

    I write, and it's nice to have an accurate word count. Somethings don't need to be included in the total word count. It would be nice to be able to more accurately edit certain styles to not be counted in the total word count. And have only certain styles included in the total word count.

  20. Add more paper sizes to Office 365 Personal

    It is SO frustrating that Office 365 Personal copies of MS Word has such a minimalist list of paper size options. I often use A5 which is not there. This is such a let down and is forcing me to look at other options outside of MS products. Please increase the list of paper sizes.
