  1. i am using word on the web hotmail app. when i select zoom a document the potion appear in the middle of the screen. thats just too much mou

    the zoom menu on the web app appears in the middle of the screen and asks for pressing the ok button.

    i suggest to put the zoom menu very near to the zoom selection button and by just clicking the desired zoom go there without the need to make another click on the ok button.

  2. bugs in captions

    I noticed that when you insert an item into a document there is an option for adding a caption about it above or below, but the the format is fixed and somewhat buggy. It only allows the caption to be labeled as 'figure (int):' in italics, and any change to overall formatting, like centering text by default, will cause the text input to continue out of the visible field. The best workaround is just inputting captions manually, but that defeats the purpose of this whole feature, and it seems like something that could be pretty useful in maintaining consistency in…

  3. Start screen scaling for QHD+ screens

    The start screen in word shows very small template icons on my QHD+ 13.3 inch laptop. It has 8 template icons on one row!! If it was HD it would only have 4 and they would be much larger.
    As a result of this, the text beneath each template icon is reduced. For example "Blank do..." and "Welco..." and "Single...". I have to hover over the small icons until the pop up displays telling me what each template actually is.

  4. Please fix right click drag and copy

    In Word 2016 select a word or paragraph, right click & drag no longer works, instead word extends the selection. The right click drag and choose from the pop up menu once the right button has been released, has been in Word for as long as i remember. Can you please return this function, the workaround of holding CTRL and left clicking and dragging is more cumbersome to the user.

  5. Pinned document sequence

    In word 2013 pinned documents were in alphabetic sequence nut now in word 2016 they are in date sequence. Is there a way to change back to alphabetic sequence or can we get an option to chose which sequence we want to see pinned documents in?

  7. Where is the "send to" option? I used to be able to send directly to flash drive and email.

    Please utilize the "send to" option so one can easily copy (instead of share) directly to a flash drive.

  8. Option in Print Preview mode to suppress gutters. The present way, the page jumps back and forth.

    Displaying the gutters also requires a larger window, not a good situation.

  10. Track changes in multi-user real-time collaboration

    Track changes mode affects real-time collaboration in Word 2016 - essentially it is no longer real-time. On the other hand, with real-time collaboration, it is important to see who made which changes.

  13. Allow Windows Search to identify where a match occurs when looking for a text in Word docs

    If you use Windows Search to look for a specific text in Word documents, it returns a list of documents where that text occurs. However, if you open the doc preview there is no way to highlight or walk thru all occurrences. You should improve Word preview to allow to see all matches and move forward and backward across them.
