  5. Lost three days of work thanks to your ineffective autosave feature. Moving to the ever trusted Google Docs. Thank you for nothing MS.

    When I use Google Docs. I care little to how I logged out. I know my work will be there regardless of what device I use. I had the misfortune of writing my Master Thesis Proposal on MS Office. I was almost done and preparing my bibliography when the laptop battery died on me. Upon return. Nothing was saved. I had SAVEDAS the document so there was a RECOVERY file that had NOTHING in it. I lost 3 days of writing hours before my deadline. Bye MS Office forever. I am not touching you ever again, and i know you…

  7. I got a feature on One system that is not on the rest and I would like to make it work on them too.

    On my last install of office 365, out of 4 systems, one of them now offers a much more in-depth set of options for misspelled words in ALL Desktop Office Apps.

    It doesn't appear to be anything like a grammar check. If a word is misspelled and has the red squiggly line, right clicking it offers several possible spelling PLUS each has a short dictionary-like script to explain the use of that spelling. An additional another arrow will open more options to "add to auto correct" as well as "read aloud".!

    This is great stuff!!

    But I cannot do anything…

  8. Smart suggestions

    Just a quick suggestion for an improvement to office.... I always struggle getting short cut keys to perform tasks in Word quickly. e.g. if I want to highlight text - it would be great if I knew what keys to press to make that happen. This is just an example... I'm now aware control alt H does this. Can Microsoft track what actions we perform a lot and then suggest short cuts we should be aware of? It would save me time. I'll put up with the privacy intrusion for that...

  10. Grammar errors in Office Support for 2016 article

    Ironically, there are grammar errors in your article titled "What's new in Word 2016 for Windows":

    • Incorrect Verb Form after Auxiliary Targets an incorrect verb form after an auxiliary verb. Use teh correct verb form after an auxiliary verb (verbs that describe a person, number, mood, tense, etc). Example: They had ate by the time she arrived would be corrected to They had eaten by the time she arrived. (should be the, not teh)
    • Possessives and Plural Forms Targets the incorrect use of Possessive and Plural forms. Possessive nouns require an apostrophe. The possessive pronoun "its" does not;…

  13. Less glitchy switching between Word document and integrated Excel sheet

    Currently if you move the typing cursor outside of a integrated Excel sheet/table the ribbon bar and glitches out for a split second + something else. Just a small thing to make more smooth.

  15. Word viewer equivalent to

    PDF is a great idea, but the file sizes compared to the latest Word formats are enormous. You can get Word viewer, but then you also need to install the compatibility pack. Have you considered a simpler one shot installation that one could use like you see the 'Download Adobe PDF here' buttons on websites when a document is published in PDF and the user may not have PDF. Better still just bundle the viewer with the OS.

  16. In Set Numbering Value in Word, it would be helpful if the current paragraph number was already selected.

  18. Immediate access to word files from task bar

    When you right-click on the Word icon on the task bar - and the list of recent documents comes up - it should be possible to select a document to attach to an email for dispatch. this used to be available in older versions of Word.

  20. Compound adjectives in grammar checker

    Delete if this already exists.

    Does the grammar checker look at compound adjectives to advise where or not a hyphen should be used?
