    The touch-screen inputs and trackpad gestures aren't working in build 9026.2006. Also, I'm having troubles updating to the next build, which may or may not address these issues

  5. Bibliography

    Some important things:
    In Hebrew, a chapter as part of a book should be written "in". I always have to manually fix the entire document by myself.
    2. There are sources in the bibliographies in one document that I must separate into two lists, for example in Bible: Interpretation and other sources. I do not have the ability to format two lists in one document.
    3. In two documents, if I want to manage different sources and then merge them together, it is difficult to distinguish who belongs to a document, in their union, it is cumbersome.
    4. You can…

  8. By adding an appear option such as in power point

    As a teacher I sometimes do not have enough time to make a powerpoint and it would be great to upload a word document with say questions and answers and have all the questions up and then just make the answers appear as required. This would save a lot of time

  9. Bug: Buttons in template-created file call wrong macro

    Office 365 ProPlus version 1701 build 7766.2099, running on Windows 7

    ActiveX command buttons that occur in a template in a different order than they were created can call the wrong macro, when a file is created from that template.

    Exact steps to reproduce: Create a new document. Save it as a .dotm file. Press enter a couple times to create space at the top of the document. Create an ActiveX Command Button. Double-click it to create procedure, put in MsgBox "One" to ID it. Create a second button ABOVE the first, and its procedure. Now, when the buttons are…

  12. Option for binding heading and it's following Text, Figure and figure Title, Table and Table Title

    In the Table properties, There is option for row break. Similarly we should have option for binding / breaking for Heading and it's following paragraph, Figure and it's following figure Title, Table and it's Table Title. Else, it is found many times that heading is in end of page in previous page and it's para is in next page, similarly, Figure is in previous page and it's title is in next page, same is with Table

  15. Hyperlinks that are results of field expressions should be clickable

    Hyperlinks that are the result of a field expression are not clickable. That should be corrected. For example, I often use a field that evaluates the SEQ field in order to determine whether to insert a TOC or a default text like "n/a". When I use the \h flag in the TOC field, the hyperlinks are formatted as hyperlinks, but they cannot be followed using ctrl + click.
    The most basic example to demonstrate this problem is the following field: { IF 1 = 1 { HYPERLINK "http://www.microsoft.com" } "" }

  16. Sidebars that work

    Hi MS,

    Joan Pin, Microsoft Forum Moderator on the Microsoft Community website, has suggested that I contact the Word UserVoice forum, to propose an improvement to Word.

    The details are within the Community thread below. I am fairly confident that the improvement is something 99% of Word users would wish were Word behaviour anyway. So I think my proposal would have widespread appeal and use.

    Anyway, over to the details, in the thread below - you'll need to read to the end, to hear Joan's conclusion :-) Over to you !

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeword-msowinother-mso_2016/printing-just-sidebars/a838383d-c2de-4057-bb6d-dd9a457a43ec?messageId=32730f0a-b35c-49e2-8913-5ade9b296d98

    Kind regards,

    David

  17. Easy to use page numbers

    Simplification of the page number system. Currently it is an atrocious mess. It is extremely complex and difficult to add page numbers and change the way the numbers look in the middle of the text (something that is necessary for anything above a high school level essay). A simple tab that allows for manual changing of numbers. Click a box for roman numerals and all pages are labeled as such. Then manually change one number to a standard number and all after that continue in standard numbers. This would allow for an easy to use system, rather than the current…

  18. Allow an option to drop cap more than just the first text character in a paragraph.

    Allow an option to drop cap more than just the first text character in a paragraph.

    For instance, if you would like to drop cap numbers, you can only go up to 9. This is a simple and intuitive feature that is already found in other programs such as Word Perfect.

  19. Constantly asking and rejecting username and password

    Every time I go to Word or any other part of Office 365, it asks me for my username and password and when I enter them, it accepts them for a second only to have the notification "Sign in!" to appear again. This makes me unable to save anything to a specific folder etc. from the Word app although the software automatically saves my work when I leave Word without "signing in". I have signed in on my computer's Office 365. What can I do?

  20. Disable discovery protocol using a HTTP response header

    The office discovery protocol is an absolute nightmare when linking to sites that require authentication.

    When there's a link to a URL in a Word document, we see attempts by Office discovery to HEAD the link rather than passing the URL to the default browser app. If the link is protected and returns a 401, Office itself will raise an authentication dialog. Returning a 405 for user agents that look like Office just results in the link not being available.

    Ideally, the server administrator would be able to return a HTTP header on the initial HEAD response saying "No -…
