  1. It seems as Word 13 is not supporting Custom print for Book Fold document format.

    I use Windows 7 and Word13. Trying to print a range of pages from “Book fold” document, but when I click on drop-down on Print All Pages, the Custom Print option is dimmed. Also not allowed to type in Pages line. Only All pages print allowed, but the document is huge and I need only part of it. My document has no section breaks and page numbers start from first page with number 1 and so on up to the last page.
    Now it is extremely inconvenient. It was no problem in Word 7, I used it very often and…

  2. Right mouse click function loss is annoying!

    Restore right click functionality! Cutting and pasting is now annoying! Why would you remove this?

  3. Layout > Columns > More Columns

    Has a checkbox "Line between." I use this as a substitute for the missing feature that dictionaries have, which is to put the starting entry and sometimes the last entry on a page above each column. This helps the reader know the level of subheading a long column refers to, by seeing the amount of indent from the Line to the entry in the index. What would be even better is an option to put the same kind of line to the left of the leftmost column. I do this with Insert > Shape but even the smallest change in…

  4. Very annoying default

    In Paragraph > Indents and Spacing there is a disgusting little checkbox labeled "Don't add space between paragraphs of the same style." I have never once used it in the ON state and sometimes I forget to turn it off. Make the default OFF.

  6. The 2016 and 2013 versions look generic and hurt my eyes

    The 2010 version of Word had depth to the sides of the page and to the icons in the ribbon. The new version feels flat and generic, there is not enough contrast between the page and the other areas of the screen. I cannot imagine staring at the new version all day long, as it hurts my eyes. My company made the change on my desktop, which means I will no longer use my dual screen desktop. Now I'm stuck using my single screen laptop's 2010 version.

  7. Right-mouse-button shortcut on the keyboard

    Some PCs do not have a key for the right mouse button on the keyboard. It should be programmable. Maybe the second 'ctrl' key can double as the right mouse button to bring up the menu. Without this feature, you now have to always use the mouse and then right click.

  9. Record Macro: Fix to record Selection.Find.Font.Name

    Apparently hasn't worked at least as far back as Word 2003.
    Such a powerful feature shouldn't have these glitches.

  10. During recording of a macro the right mouse click is disabled

    During recording of a macro the right mouse click is disabled, so the the options/functions from the right click contextmenu can't be recorded. It would be nice if the right click contextmenu is working during recording of a macro.

    Word 2016 freezes every time after I open it, as soon as I type a few letters/words. It happens every morning.

  12. Format popup screens hang for 20-30 seconds

    Whenever I click a formatting option, including paragraph popup window or style window, there is a 20-30 second delay before it becomes functional, and same delay when closing window. I tried moving custom templates folder and making sure Word is using the correct folder, but no change.

  13. Fix Word spellcheck to recognise single letters as ERROR which is fails to now. USELESS!)

    Spellcheck in Word 2016 will only ID single letters in English as errors if they are repeated i.e. 'A A A' or 'a a a' are errors, but 'A' or 'a' are not, thus typos (e.g. 't hem' or 'the m' for 'them') are IGNORED. Typos of single letters are common. So spellcheck is useless as a reliable tool for proofing a document. Have just spend 1.5 hours with MS tech support trying to fix this. Their conclusion: it is a 'system limitation' that cannot be fixed through options or preferences etc. PLEASE FIX.

  17. Word crashes on InlineShapes.AddPicture(..) - PictureContentControl

    The following code of a Word VSTO addin causes Word to crash:

    ...
    foreach (Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ContentControl cc in sr.ContentControls)

        {

    if (cc.Type == Word.WdContentControlType.wdContentControlPicture)
    {

    //word appcrash when contentcontrol is placed inside of a text box
    var imageShape = cc.Range.InlineShapes.AddPicture(imagePath);
    }
    }

    In Word 2016 it doesn't occur. I suggest to provide a patch for prior versions of Word too.

  18. Render texts in font selection menu, for all conponents of Office!

    Since the menu had been strengthened in Office 2000, the unrendered menu has stayed the same for the past 16 yrs.
    Render the texts! No matter in DirectWrite grayscale or Cleartype, just do it! Look at Office Mobile, it has done so well!

  20. Shortcut (CTRL+DOT) for squiggly lines options like visual studio

    Maybe there already is a shortcut for this but every time I see a red line underneath my text I'm instantly pressing CTRL+DOT wanting to see the options. It's just a habbit from using visual studio but it's a perfect and enormous time saving shortcut to use.
