  2. Re-instate the OOXML errors showing the part & line number - missing in Word 2016 and 2019

    In Word 2010, if there is an error in the OOXML when you try to open a file there is a detailed error message showing the part and line number. To find the error location you just need to "pretty print" the XML part and try to open the file. For example, this OOXML when trying to open in Word 2010 provides the message "Ambiguous cell mapping encountered..." and "Location: Part: /word/document.xml, Line: 18, Column:0"

    <w:tbl>

    &lt;w:tblPr&gt;
    
    &lt;w:tblStyle w:val=&quot;TableGrid&quot;/&gt;
    &lt;w:tblW w:w=&quot;0&quot; w:type=&quot;auto&quot;/&gt;
    &lt;w:tblLook w:val=&quot;04A0&quot; w:firstRow=&quot;1&quot; w:lastRow=&quot;0&quot; w:firstColumn=&quot;1&quot; w:lastColumn=&quot;0&quot; w:noHBand=&quot;0&quot; w:noVBand=&quot;1&quot;/&gt;
    &lt;/w:tblPr&gt;
    &lt;w:tblGrid&gt;
    &lt;w:gridCol w:w=&quot;9350&quot;/&gt;
    &lt;/w:tblGrid&gt;

  4. Consider change to markup feature.

    I have a document that now automatically opens up with markup and I can't find instructions to stop that happening. I know how to turn it off when I'm ready to print but the point is I don't want the document to even open with that feature on.

  6. Unicode code points transformation feature (ALT+X) for ⌨ keyboards that have ALTGR

    In Microsoft Word with the standard US ANSI keyboard you can type 00E9 and then press ALT+X to get “é”.

    Please make this feature compatible for keyboard layouts that have the ALTGR key and have something defined at ALTGR+X (CTRL+ALT+X)

  9. How about you guys make Microsoft Word for free?

    Here is what I mean for example me when I have a presentation to do in class it says I have to enable editing by paying. What if people don't have time to pay or cant afford it? So my suggestion is for you to make Microsoft Word free!

  10. Please fix an inconsistency with how to add a text comment in Word Office 2016

    right now, you cannot add a comment to a Word text section that contains a field, at least if you try to do it by right-clicking and selecting "New Comment" from the bottom of the drop-down menu. However, you can add a comment to such a text section - you just click the "New Comment" icon in the Review" tab in the top horizontal menu ribbon. Please add a "New Comment" option to the right-click drop-down menu even if there is a field in the selected text.

  11. Option to disable "Do you want to keep the last item you copied?" dialog box

    It's slower to close the dialog box than it would be to just keep the last thing you copied on the clipboard and close the file. Highly irritating and it needs to be optional at the very least, or a way to set it once and "Do not show this dialog again" kind of thing.

  14. Touch-typing App from within Office 365

    We have been shifting teaching in our school to Office 365 and Cloud Teaching. We use KIOSK on all PCs in our computer labs. What we need most is an app that helps students learn touch-typing from within Office 365. Please incorporate this either as a separate app or from within Word. Many thanks.

  15. Rename the "Layout" tab under Table Tools to Table Layout

    When in a table, the Table Design and Layout tabs become visible. These used to be under Table Tools but are now on their own. Please rename the Layout Tab to be Table Layout to avoid confusion with the (Page) Layout tab.

    See https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/subject/forum/category/topic/91da5ede-126d-461f-960d-e19c57088060

  16. Insert Azure DevOps query into Word document which can be refreshable

    Similar to the way Wikis in Azure DevOps use queries, it would be nice to be able to insert DevOps query results into a Word document for distribution to colleagues who are not on the development team and do not have access.

  20. Add verbal comments in the Review Tab

    I would love to be able to record verbal comments on Word documents. When inserting a comment, it would be nice to have the option to choose whether to type or record the comment.
