  1. Teach Syllable Division New Words

    At the moment, Word doesn't divide unknown words or names at all. One can use the manual divison, but that's no big help in case one uses that word a lot within a bigger text document!

    In this case, it would be great to have the opportunity to "teach" syllable division a new word including the correct divisions!

  3. Add a search bar for the tools in the ribbon

    Some people are forgetting where are the tools they want, and see them really important. It is really useful since people affected by Alzheimer's find it hard to work on Word.

    Something has changed in Word Office 365 than I can no longer print envelopes. My printer is ok because I am able to print envelopes using WordPerfect v6.

  5. Allow for a comma before a conjunction in a compound verb when preceeded by a compound object.

    My work requires written reports of actions taken by individuals, so I find myself often using compound verbs to reduce the number of short, similar sentences; e.g., "The employee x'ed. The employee y'ed" becomes "The employee x'ed and y'ed." Occasionally, the object of the first verb is different than the second but should not be switched due to chronological order; e.g., "The employee x'ed a. The employee y'ed b" becomes "The employee x'ed a and y'ed b." This causes a problem when the object of the first verb is compound, as there is in most grammar styles an option for…

  7. clipboard images have access to all format options including the ribbon format tools

Currently you don't always have this capability and sometimes are required to save an image and bring it in to have these options.
