  1. Add all initials to APA bibliography

    When I make a bibliography using APA (6th edition) in Word 2013/2016 and add an author who has three initials, only the first two initials are listed in the bibiography.

    For example: Aarts, G. A. C. becomes Aarts, G. A.

  5. Make VBA Combobox open to touch when using Word 2016 on Windows 10

    Fix the fault with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 and Word 2013/2016 (Desktop) to allow the user to touch the screen to open Entry\Exit combobox macros. Right now it only works using a stylus pen.

    Office 2010 opens the comboboxes with touch on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 touch screen devices no problem!

  7. Flatten the UI: move Autocorrect Options dialog into Options pain<sic>

    Work to flatten the User interface. Move all (or at least some) of the options in the Autocorrect dialog into the Options pane.

    It would make them easier to find.

    combined with another suggestion I made, they would be part of the newly text searchable Options pane.

  10. Can we get a:extraClrSchemeLst to work in Word

    In PowerPoint, I can edit the required Theme.xml and embed my colour schemes into my template via use of a:extraClrSchemeLst attribute. I'm guessing this is a fall back to earlier versions of PowerPoint.

    However, it is a great feature as it allows me to specify one or more colour schemes, without relying on the user being able to see the scheme on a network drive.

    If I use the same attribute in the Theme.xml file of a Word template, Word ignores this attribute completely and requires the user to see the scheme on a network etc. Whilst if only one…

  11. Draft view to show images

    Draft view (and Outline view) allows one to see which styles are in use, so that they may be updated, edited or changed. However, images are not able to be seen, and applying a paragraph style to the image (e.g. so that one can add 'Keep with Next' for the caption), is nigh on impossible.

  15. Add more readability tests

    Word should incorporate the option to measure against other readability tests when it completes a grammar checks. Some of these may be necessary for work. For example, the Fry Readability Formula is used for regulatory purposes for preparing readable documents.

    You can find examples of Readability tests here:

  16. [Bug report] Wrong row heights when cell margins are set

    In Word 2013 and 2016, the actual table row height of the print-out differs from the defined row height if top and bottom cell margins aren't zero. For example, if top and bottom margins are 0.25 cm and row height is 5 cm, the actual row height of the print-out is 5.5 cm. It seems that 2 x 0.25 cm is added to the 5 cm. However, left and right cell margins are never added to column width. 5 cm is always 5 cm, no matter how large the left and right cell margins are.

    Furthermore, if the row height…

  17. "Tell Me" feature fix

    The fix me is nice, but ...
    It is a stupid stripped down version of the Labs Search addon tool.
    The Search tool provided a vital feature, in the tool tip it provided the path to the command.

    You MUST add this back!

    Tool tips are vital to using the Tell Me as a learning tool for the ribbon. Right now it is just an addictive tool. People will end up using the tell me all the time rather than learning where the command are in the stupid ribbon.

  18. User Guide: create user documentation

    MS has to step up and provide adequate documentation for all of their applications.

    Yes, I know MS is too cheap to produce paper user guides, but they still have a responsiblity to their cusotmers/users and their shareholders to create adequate , easy to find user documentation.

    How can you expect people to use all of these allegedly new and "wonderful" features if we can't find out that they exist, let alone how to use them

    I have been trying to find Technet documentation for Office 2016, equivalent to documenation for older versions and have not been able to.

    This…

  19. Make a public API for application window color "themes"

    Haven't you heard enough complaints about the dumb design choices you made for Office 2013 application window color "themes".

    The additional themes in 2016 help. But why not open up an API for third party developers to make design decisions for color themes.
