  1. Ability to change the scaling of the picture within the crop window

    When you clicked on a picture in Word 2010 and chose crop you also had the ability to change the scaling of the picture within the crop window. That in not in 365 that I can find. Is there a way to get this feature back? Now it's a two step process, crop and then change size of picture. So you had a great idea in 2010 and lost it.

  10. Convert images into editable documents

    This used to be possible with Office Lens, but you chose to discontinue it and now there is no way to do this on a PC using Microsoft products. Please either bring back Office Lens on the PC or provide some other way to convert images into editable Word documents or PDF documents with selectable text. Adding this within the Word desktop application would be a good option.

  14. Bring back the old spell check please!!

    I just purchased Word 2019 (previously had Word 2010). Oh my goodness, what have you done? Please bring back the old spell check. Editor takes forever. I can't fix the words in the box that spell check had and have to go over to my document from Editor pane to do so. And so many other things. What were you guys thinking? If you want to create options for writers than create a Word for Wirters. Thank you for you time and consideration. Please add a fix ASAP!

  17. Option to post word docs as live note type icons on desktop.

    I use word to write a lot of papers. All docs are accessible through opening word. This one way of opening a document is antiquated. Documents should also be saved as live images on the desktop as icons. For example, on an android phone (Samsung note) a note can be saved on the home screen as a live image icon and not just an stagnant icon. In addition, windows has live tiles but are not used often. Translate live tiles to the desktop, along with making word docs savable as living icons that can be saved on the desktop with…

  18. Find and Find and Replace features stop redirecting to previous searches

    The "Find" and "Find and Replace" features have an issue. It would be awesome to see it fixed because I use these features often. Easiest explanation is an example:

    If I use the "Find" feature and search "apple", it works great and I can see all 30 instances of "apple".

    I make edits on page 10 then click the X on the "Find" window and resume my work on page 54.

    The next time I use the "Find" feature, it will automatically open with the previous results from "apple" and bring me back to page 10. I've wasted a lot…

  19. Make Word simpiler

    Make Word for Windows (Desktop Application) easier to use for the average person. My first suggestion is to simplify things. A good program can be easily figured out without spending several hours googling or watching tutorials. I am a college student, and even I am overwhelmed by the number of options in Word. My second suggestion is to get data from users about the first things they do when they open up a Word document. For me, it is enable editing, which I shouldn't even have to do and rename the document, which should just be a single click. Instead,…
