  3. Tolerate names from other languages when doing word check

    I feel bad when I see Asian's names being undetectable by Word and have a red line underneath. Please do some work on it as a respect.

    it would be great that when you are typing on word that when you make a spelling mistake and correct it that there is an obvious setting that allows you to view words you commonly spell wrong and they create a spelling list where you can practise spelling these words correctly. I could go into more detail but I am sure it is Fairley obvious what the idea is and probably simple to implement!

  7. protection

    Make the restrict editing and protect document entities identical in PC and mac versions of word.

    On a mac. Open the document. there is a yellow bar near the top indicating document is protected. on right side there is a "duplicate" button.

  8. When I drag the splash screen to a different monitor, the app should open on that monitor

    When the app is starting the splash screen is movable. If I move it to a different monitor, I want the app to open on that monitor.

  10. New share dialog has got to go!

    The new "file share" dialog, that tries to force me to upload a doc to the MSFT cloud (which I refuse to use) has to die ... now! It destroys my workflow by removing keyboard shortcuts that I rely on to send files as email attachments (forces me to mouse-select something besides the cloud).

    Your harassment for cloud use (can't even configure your "Set up OneDrive" nagging dialogue box) shows you don't care about affective UX or your customers.

  12. Fix Mail Merge filter "is blank" issue

    When entering a filter with an "is blank" condition, and saving it, the filter will then gain new lines. For example, if I create a filter:
    Field 1 is equal to Y
    AND Field 2 is blank
    when I save and re-open it, it will have
    Field1 is equal to Y
    AND Field 2 is blank
    OR Field 2 is blank
    which effectively eliminates line 1

    The same is true for "Not Equal To"

    The issue is in Office365 and Excel and has existed for several years now.

  13. Perform Office 365 wide searches directly from Desktop apps

    Search from Delve, SharePoint, OneDrive within the desktop apps. Recent history is helpful, but it would be great to be able to open any online file via search, rather than file browser dialog.

  16. Create and save personal formats

    Sometimes for school I have to create really specifically formatted documents and it would make things so much easier if you could create and save your own personal formats to use for other documents.
