      • Go back to old Standard Color Wheel

        I want the old Standard Colors back that are rich, saturated and pure from the color wheel. Even with the More Colors option, you cannot get the vibrant colors of versions past. The Standard Colors of Office 2010 - even the best options - are dull and watered down, wimpy, lifeless, muted versions of the true color wheel. You can still offer all the fancy muted theme options and variations one can derive from the More Colors feature. But, please, give us back the old Standard Colors.

          • Change default text wrapping distance from text for shapes and graphics inserted into Word

            Users should be able to set a default text wrapping distance from text when inserting shapes and graphics into a Word document. I insert hundreds of shapes, graphics, and text boxes into the training documentation I author, and I hate having to change the text wrapping distance from 0.13" to 0.05" for each and every object. Very time consuming!

              • 置換で起こる重大なバグ

                この処理を行うと次のように数式と数式の間に挟まれた日本語が勝手に数式フィールドに変更されてしまう。

                数式…日本語...数式

                この不備のためレイアウトが大幅に崩れます。このため一つ一つ変更された日本語を選択し、「Πボタン」を押して解除する作業に追われました。一括置換を行うたびにこの作業を強いられます。
                このバグのため、数十時間を浪費しました。はっきり言って被害レベルです。時間とお金を返してほしい。これについては相当な憤りを感じております。
                もうこの作業が恐ろしいため一括置換が恐ろしくて仕方ありません。いい加減修正してほしいです。

                • グループ化

                  Word2019で2007で作成した旧ファイルをデータ変換した際、次の図形や画像が正しく変換されない。

                  ・2重3重と複雑にグループ化された図形(特に数の多い図形をグループ化したもの)
                  ・別のソフトで作成して取り込んだオブジェクト(グラフを作成するソフト)

                  これらの図形や画像をクリックすると隅に白丸ではなく灰色の四角が表示される。恐らくこちらもバグかと思われます。今後ソフトがバージョンアップする際、不備が出る可能性があるため直してほしいです。

                    • 図形がドラッグ選択できないバグを早く直してください

                      図形の幅または高さが0の図形がドラッグ選択できないバグを早く直してください。仕事になりません。図形をまとめて選択するとそれらが選択できず、追加で選択しようとしても背面に隠れて選択できない。グループ化した図形を最背面に移動すればできるかもしれないが、重ね順がずれると意図した図にならないためそれもできない。はっきり言って不便すぎます。何とかなりませんか。更新ファイル早く送ってくれませんか。本当にイライラします。

                      • ヘッダー/フッター領域の図形

                        ヘッダー/フッター領域に配置した図形が、通常でもマウスで移動できてしまう仕様は大変不便です。この領域の図形は前ページに適用されますので、通常は移動したりしません。誤って何度も選択してしまうことがあり大変不便です。至急改善下さい。

                            • Book Spread View -

                              Book Spread View - When producing a book, that I want to duplex print and then bind. When I view 2 pages, I need the to see how the spread will look. That means I need to see the Even numbered page on the Left and the odd numbered page on the Right.

                              The current work-around is to insert a new blank page at the Start of the Doc. The downside is that throws the pages numbering off.

                                In a Word document when I edit the text wrapping points on an image the text is not visible. On previous versions this feature worked very well. The 2019 version needs to be updated to correct this fault.

                                Refer to case number 1458525203

                                Please contact me when patch is available.

                                    There needs to be a sort feature on the document recovery pane. The recovered documents are in no particular order. The newest recovered document should be on top or at least we should have the option to sort in the way that best suits us. The way it is now is very inconvenient.

                                    • Go To Page quick click

                                      During remote, collaborative editing sessions on large documents (30+ pages), I need to navigate to a specific page fast, make a change, and then move to another page fast: the next page may or may not be in close proximity to the page I am on.

                                      GoTo Page does this. But I do this a lot. And people on the other end of the conversation are not patient.

                                      It would be great if there were a fast, double-click action to bring up the Go To dialogue box -- say, double clicking the bottom LH corner of the Word container where…
