  3. Allow two or more languages to be corrected at the same time

    I have been using Word for years to write essays, presentations, etc; and as far as I'm aware, it does not seem to be possible to add multiple languages as the spelling-checker. I find myself, and just like probably many other people, to be writing stuff like taking notes, in two languages sometimes, and everytime I must select the text and put the right language in the spelling checker settings, which takes me useless time and could definitely be improved. Hence, my suggestion is to add some kind of 'multiple language spelling checker' option which would allow us to write…

  4. Selecting of a word/phrase without selecting the space or paragraph mark, so properties are not carried beyond, such as bold text, etc

    Allow selecting of a word or phrase without selecting the paragraph mark or empty space mark that follows, so properties of the selection are not carried beyond the selection, such as bold text, etc.

  5. Restore Spellcheck options

    Can you please restore the Change All and Undo options to Spellchecker? Why not just add these to the list, under Ignore All etc? It is completely incomprehensible why you removed these one click options. Now I have to do an extra click to get to Change All and the Undo option is simply unavailable. You just seem to change things for change's sake.

  10. Word status bar

    In a recent update, the behavior of my Word status bar was changed. The font got bigger, but the field size did not, so now the text is being cut off. For example, instead of "Page 120 of 295", now I can only see "Page 120 of 29". How to fix this?

  12. Sticky phrases

    I find I am tired of figuring which things are "sticky" and just how, and also of going through a documnent trying to replace "-" and certain spaces with the old "sticky" versions so words stay together. Especially since those don't actually seem to work anymore. But regardless...

    I'd like a command to make any chosen, highlighted set of characters "sticky": not to just be treated as a word with potential hyphenation being assigned in it if near the end of a line, but kept together period in all circumstances.

    Just that: kept together, period. Nothing more, nothing less. Not…

  14. Symbols | Character Map Favourites Selection

    Currently when loading symbols it shows your most recently used. It would be nice to select ones own "favourite symbols" template with our own number to show from the symbols menu, so that we don't have to open the character map and get lost to try and find a symbol over and over again.

    PS: my laptop doesn't have a numpad so learning all the ASCII codes off by heart would not work.

  16. Please Please Please can we have another sans serif font with a single storey a /g

    Research suggests that people with literacy difficulties generally find sans serif fonts with a 'single storey' a / g easier to read. The only option on Windows applications at present is Century Gothic which is widely spaced - impacting on readability. Please please can you introduce another (more easily readable / more closely spaced) font across Windows which will make it easier to improve access for, and respect the rights of people with literacy difficulties / learning disabilities.

  18. Table conversion

    I sometimes take a list of email addresses from Excel and put them into Word to use in Outlook. I want to convert the table into text separated by a semi-colon. There is an option in Word to do this, but nothing is inserted. I have to Find the line breaks and Replace. Please fix

  19. insert should have date option

    When I go to the Insert options, I don't see date there. I may be missing something, but it will be nice for that to be conspicuous.
