  4. To increase the use of S Word, please create a MS Word Add-In for any Developer to use when they need a “Text Box”.

    I am NOT a Developer.

    As a User, I am frustrated that every Web App has its Unique Way of handling Text Input.

    I use Word. I’d like that Basic Functionality!!! Please :)

  6. Alt text

    Please stop putting this text in automatically for every picture's Alt Text:

    "A screenshot of a cell phone"

    It is unnecessary, and making Word documents everywhere in the world have inaccurate alt text.

  9. Export AIP Protected Documents with AIP Protection to PDF

    Currently exporting a AIP protected Document to PDF strips the Document of its protection.
    Instead a PDF with the same Protection Status as the original should be created.

  10. Auto correct doesn't work correctly.

    When auto correction is activated it doesn't work for German language.
    In Germany we use the double quotation marks. They have an own key. The key with the apostrophe doesn't work with Microsoft and Office.
    The system sets the opening single quotation mark instead of the apostrophe, which is very often needed.
    A correction function should make the work easier and not impossible!

  12. Option to turn off collapse heading feature

    I need to be able to turn off the collapse heading "feature". It is not useful to me, and is dangerous as it is quite easy to inadvertently hide text in a document.

  15. Numbering of comments

    Dear Microsoft,

    Why did you eliminated the numbering of the comments? It is such a bad idea! In a document where I have 20-30 comments, it has become just impossible to keep track of these comments anymore. Please, please bring it back.

  16. Modernize Document Template (dotx)

    "AutoSave does not support this file format..AutoSave only supports the modern, native, Office file formats..." - Microsoft

    If document templates are not modern, why is it being included into Microsoft Flow?

    My end objective is to create a Word template and use Flow to populate fields from a SharePoint Online list.

    In the meantime, why isn't dotx considered a "modern, native, Office file format"?

  19. Word status bar

    In a recent update, the behavior of my Word status bar was changed. The font got bigger, but the field size did not, so now the text is being cut off. For example, instead of "Page 120 of 295", now I can only see "Page 120 of 29". How to fix this?
