  2. Create a Lab Report Feature

    I am a 7th grader and in my school, we have to write a lot of lab reports for chemistry, physics, etc. I was thinking you could add a tool, that would allow students and professors to create reports with custom settings for different sections as last year we had fewer sections of our lab report that we do this year. Please consider this improvement.

  4. Améliorations pour Word 2019

    Au début de cette année, j'ai fait l'acquisition d'office 2019.
    Jusque là, j'utilisais office 2010.
    En mars dernier, je me suis mis en rapport avec vos services pour signaler deux grosses lacunes sous Word 2019.
    - La fonction "Insertion Image Scanneur" ne fonctionne pas sous cette version.
    - L'affichage des limites d'un texte place des lignes à chaque fois que l'on fait "Enter" sous Word 2019.
    Moralité, il m'est inconcevable de travailler avec cette dernière version tant que ces problèmes ne sont pas résolus !
    Bien qu'ayant été en contact avec des collaborateurs consciencieux, je constate qu'il n'y a toujours…

  6. Get an APA 7 format style for a Template

    Universities have moved to the updated APA 7 format. I expected more from Microsoft, I guess. As we students are using university Templates rather than seeking out Microsoft Word for support in this area.

  7. paste value word

    Paste without formatting keyboard shortcut - most apps just use Ctrl-Shift-V. Would be nice if Office supports it too, instead of pasting and then choosing to ignore formatting.

  8. Wrong APA Edition Template - Add 7th Edition!

    You have the incorrect template edition on Word. It's still 2010 version - 6th Edition. The newest edition was released at the end of 2019. The 7th Edition is for students and has no running header and no abstract, as well as the topic matter being left aligned and not centered.

  11. word count

    Selective word count:
    Having the option to highlight a body of text and then click a button which creates a text at the bottom of you body being "(word count: _____)" which updates live as you change it. Going even further, you can enhance this feature by right-clicking and selecting an option for set word count min and max, which will highlight the word count green once you reach the minimum but change to red if you exceed the maximum value.
    This would be very useful for students who operate within wordcount +-10% guidelines or anyone who needs to know…

  15. Dark Mode in Word.

    In my opinion there should be a dark mode or night mode in Microsoft Products also.

  19. Word Tabs

    How about a tabbed layout experience in Word? As opposed to having multiple, many instances of Word open simultaneously. That would make navigating the sometimes many/multiple and varied documents opened to be more easily navigated, and would make working in them much easier. Instead of finding which instance of the many buttons displayed for Word along my taskbar, I could simply have a single window with a row of tabs named with the file name/document title. Or, give us the option to choose.

  20. Allow user to set Dictate "timeout" value. It's too short now.

    When I heard about Dictate, I was excited. When I began to use it, I became very disappointed -- great idea, very poor implementation. Initiating Dictate is easy, but it stops transcribing after a VERY VERY short time, rendering it useless to me.

    Please enable user to select from defined timeout value(s) -- e.g., 5 seconds after last voice input, 30 seconds, 2 minutes, never (i.e., manually force timeout), so Dictate doesn't quit transcribing after only seconds.

    Thanks for listening... now, PLEASE implement... !
