    • Add equation support for Office 365

      In the software version of Word and other Microsoft Office product you are able to add equations to your document using the equation editor. I don't understand why this product has been out for several years now but does not have feature parity yet. If you want to bill this as a replacement for the yearly office suite at least add the basic functionality that already exists in the software version. Google Docs can do it, why cant you?

      • Saving of .pdf files changed for the worse at the last update

        I use Word .docx files to create a master, editable document. When I have completed the document I send a .pdf version to my client. In the past, if I made a mistake I could easily make the change in the docx file and over write the .pdf file. However at the last update whenever I try to save to the .pdf Word wont let me I have to go and delete the orginal .pdf file or rename it - this is time consuming - could you please go back to just being able to over write the file

          • Custom Colors for Tables Shading

            Please consider adding an ability for a user to save custom colors in tables shading by giving them names and adding them to the existing palette. Problem with Recent Colors option is that all of these recent colors disappear when a MS Word session is terminated. The ability to add and save custom colors is essential to branding and marketing. Recreating custom colors from scratch every time is a major pain and a waste of the valuable time.
            Thank you for your consideration!

            • Unable to get Grammar suggestions

              Using Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.dll, it is possible to get the spelling and grammatical errors for a range using property Range.SpellingErrors and Range.GrammaticalErrors respectively.

              Though it is possible to get the Spelling suggestion for the Spelling Error with GetSpellingSuggestion method, no such method is available for Grammar suggestions.

                    • personalisation on word

                      on word you can change your account options to white, dark grey or colourful. I think you should be able to pick your colour as on colourful mode the only option is blue. for example you could have yellow, pink, green, purple, orange, black, red etc.

                      • Progress Bar when Saving a Word Document

                        Greetings, My Save Progress Bar won't appear at the bottom of the page in the status bar. I'd like to see the progress of my save like I did on precious version, especially on larger documents. Otherwise, you have to go back over the document every time to make sure the work was saved. I just downloaded OFFICE 365. The Save Progress Bar was there on my older version. I went to Options and clicked on Advanced - Save - Allow Background Saves as suggested. That is supposed to activate it, but it still does not appear. Please help. Thanks!

                        • Let the user choose from which number they want to start numbering captions.

                          I wanted to start captioning my figures from Fig. 111, but it does not let me. It would be very useful if Word let the numbering be customized.

                          • Grammarly Add in

                            Incorporate the Grammarly Add in to Word 2019 and Word 365. It was very helpful in Office 2016 and 2013. On the same note, I find that Word 2019 grammar tool is very effective as compared to the previous releases.

                            • History of saved documents

                              Allow for Word to save up to, say, 3-5 recent drafts of a document to allow for a more complete recovery should the latest draft be lost. Now, there is an auto-recovery function, but it's only temporary; it goes away after a document is selected for permanent saving. I would like the 3-5 most recent saves to be kept permanently available.

                              • Please fix saving issue!

                                When you click save it renames your document to something random in the folder you're saving in instead of the default name for the document. So frustrating! Please make it stop.

                                  for example now available horizontal (left & right) centering, why not have vertical centering. equal space from the top and bottom of page? I think this good idea. the appearance of page will be better when not have a lot of text.

                                  • Create "directed" comments in the Track Changes/Commenting feature

                                    I work with large, collaborative documents and have many comments that need to be addressed by certain people who are reviewing the document. I'd love to have a feature where you can create a "directed" Comment to a specific person/reviewer, and allow people to find all the Comments directed to them (and JUST the Comments directed to them), so they can be more efficient when reviewing/editing/responding.

                                    • Allow a non-maximized word window that has the ribbon on auto-hide.

                                      Word currently seems to force windows to maximized if one selects the ribbon to auto-hide. I do not like this.

                                      • Allow 2.0 font to stay as a permanent setting if desired.

                                        In my school, I am required to type weekly essays with 2.0 line spacing. I think it would be a great idea to have an option to (if preferred) set the default line spacing as 2.0.

                                        • Spelling and grammar suggestions in the bottom bar

                                          The middle space in the bottom bar (one with number of words and zoom bar, etc) is mostly empty. It will be productive for the user to have the top suggestion from 'Spelling & Grammar' part of 'Review' tab in there if mouse pointer is hovered over the misspelled word (underlined with red), incorrect grammar, or similar inaccuracies.
