  1. Allow font to be changed in an equation

    MS Word allowed the font in an equation to be changed. MS Word in Office 365 only allows Cambria Math font in an equation. It would be nice to be able to choose the font in an equation, just as it is nice to be able to choose the font in a document.

  2. Double-clicking a word in Read Mode should automatically switch to Edit Mode

    Double-clicking a word in Read Mode should automatically switch to Edit Mode with said word highlighted. It's frustrating when you want to make a simple change while in Read Mode. You have to click through a menu to switch to Edit Mode and then you have to waste time searching for the place where you wanted to edit.

  3. Spellcheck keeps crashing! Fix it!

    Since the last update, spellcheck just does not work.
    It manages one or two words, then freezes.
    I am on Windows 365

  5. Label a word as a name

    Microsoft Word should have the option to label a word as a name. Right now we need to ether ignore the word or add it to the dictionary.

  6. More Highlighting Options

    I would LOVE some more highlighter colors, especially some pastels. The bright neons make it difficult to read and I don't understand why we don't have a wider range of selection like we do for fonts.

  7. Ability to create my own custom tray of equation editor symbols

    It would be great to select the equation editor symbols used most often instead of having to click between Basic Math, Geometry, etc, every time a new equation is being created.

  8. Dark Mode in Word.

    In my opinion there should be a dark mode or night mode in Microsoft Products also.

  12. Template-by-Template (or Style-by-Style) Grammar Settings

    For different templates, it would be cool if I could set spelling and grammar. For instance, in business correspondence, I want more formal grammar settings than in other types of writing. If I could set it by template, I would be able to control the squiggly blue line!

  13. Stop playing with things that are not broken!!!

    Using the exact same size text box, style, and fonts should not change between versions on word. If I was not required to use you for work I would throw you in the trash.

  14. Microsoft Word "Draw" module need some love <3

    Using this function since day 0 when it was released in MS Word.
    However years have been passed, but using it still uncomfortable.
    There is small list of improvement:
    1. Line auto-correction.
    2. Integrated "Paint" functions
    3. Integrated "Visio" functions (X/Y graphs and etc. for free hands drawing on above of graph).
    4. Draw area corrections - correction for already exist INK for example; delete partial layer and not an all object.
    5. SW Defects resolution - MS Word have been crashed around 5 times while using "Draw" function.
    6. Simple tools - Ruler, brush etc.

    Thank you.

  16. Easier Bullet point levels

    I would like to be able to create a bullet list and add levels by hitting enter after the list is started and add a new level by hitting tab. Right now I have to apply the bullet point, hit enter and then, if I want a new level, I have to go back up to the bullet point options and select one. I would like it to be an automatic thing.

  19. Suggestions for MS-Office improvement (Thesaurus).

    Dear Microsoft Team,

    I would like to suggest Microsoft the following MS-Office improvement initiatives:


    1. In MS-Word (MS-Office) add a "next" button for navigating the Thesaurus results. Currently, there is only a "previous" button (left arrow).


    2. In MS-Word (MS-Office) make a review of the Thesaurus entries because, in many cases, the correlations between words are broken.


    3. In MS-Word (MS-Office) add a shortcut (icon) to the status bar to activate the Thesaurus tool.


    Best regards,

    Elizabeth Anne Villegas Hernandez
    Mexico.

  20. Option for formal project and informal project

    I am currently working on writing a book and I keep getting corrections for "formal" writing. If there were simply an option to mark it as a formal or informal document, that would likely be beneficial to a lot of users.
