  1. Option to disable "Do you want to keep the last item you copied?" dialog box

    It's slower to close the dialog box than it would be to just keep the last thing you copied on the clipboard and close the file. Highly irritating and it needs to be optional at the very least, or a way to set it once and "Do not show this dialog again" kind of thing.

  3. Allow us to stretch brackets bigger than the text

    I've entered the following in equation editor

    [-e^(-t) (t^3+3t^2+6t+6)]_(-1)^0

    The square brackets are not big (that is, tall) enough for my liking. I've tried changing to Professional mode. I tried "Increase Argument Size" on both the 0 and -1. Nothing makes the square brackets bigger.

    See this thread: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_word-mso_other-mso_2010/can-i-make-equation-editor-brackets-bigger/6255813b-1b15-4fee-8845-64791723223e?tm=1570981981263

  6. Different formatting for caption label and text

    Please allow creating a caption style that applies different formatting to the caption label and the text in the caption. For example, I would like the figure label (Figure 1) to be bold, and the description of the figure in the caption to not be bold, without having to manually select each caption label and make it bold or writing a macro.

  7. EYEDROPPER TOOL IS A MUST

    EYEDROPPER TOOL IS A MUST. Please add that feature it, i use it literally everyday in powerpoint. Why is it not included in Word?? I've searched extensively for the eyedropper tool and combed through the internet searches seeing if I was just not seeing it. Turns out there isn't one, like at all. Add this feature in!!

  8. Option to exclude words within quotes from grammar and/or spell check.

    My main purpose is to exclude dialog, with its potentially odd words and phrasing, from spell or grammar check or both.

  9. Word default for table gridlines to be on

    At some point, I think Word 2010, the default changed so that when you opened a blank document, table gridlines were turned off. This has caused lots of confusion as we build all our forms in word using tables. If gridlines are turned off and there are no table borders, the person doesn't see the cells of the table. Would like the default to be table gridlines ON.

  10. Fix default to not automatically resize table to fit contents

    I create forms for use online and to be printed for people to fill out by hand. This being the default has created lots of issues for the ones we have to print out. However, I am not able to change the default so that when I insert a new table, this is turned off.

  13. Different page numbering formats at two locations on same page

    I need continuous numberings of total pages in footer and sequential numbering for each section in header.
    If I set ‘continue from previous’ in footer for entire document, the header too behaves the same way.
    I would be a good idea, if Microsoft would add a simple feature, to disassociate two number field formats on one page from each other.

  16. Ability to delete all "resolved" comments

    Currently there is an option to delete all comments.
    It would be great if we could delete all resolved comments.

  17. Horizontal Ruler

    The horizontal ruler is divided into eighths of an inch, but the dialog box for formatting hanging and other indents uses tenths of an inch. The latter is far more useful. Please divide the horizontal and vertical rulers accordingly by tenths.

  18. Disable grammar checking, period

    I don't want to disable grammar checking while I type. I want to disable grammar checking all the time, forever, because it's incapable of accurately parsing my technical writing anyway. But apparently, on Office 365, I can't do that.

    There's no reason on God's green earth to force me to deal with useless grammar checking every time I spellcheck. It's an extra click I don't need, and it slows down the check.

    This is typical Microsoft: "There's a feature no one uses. It must be because people don't know about it. So let's make it mandatory!"

    Perhaps the reason no…

  20. multiple copy and paste

    I noticed during the paste process in Microsoft word and the windows system to have the last thing copied but sometimes we want to paste a file or a penultimate sentence. Copy and paste according to time because when we copy another file it will be pasted according to the last copy.

    Therefore the solution that we want when the paste will be according to the last time and then before the last and then before before the last. A minute, an hour, a day or a week, month ,which is to be arranged by date.

    The second idea while…
