  3. Update the Citations & Bibliography tool to include MLA 8, which was updated in 2016. Why isn't this included in Word 2019?

    MLA style is one of the most commonly used citation styles in the United States, and yet in they still haven't updated this feature in Word. Not in 2016 when it should have been, and not even in the newest release.

  5. Update to MLA 8th edition

    In Microsoft Word the MLA style is the 7th edition, but quite a while ago, the Modern Language Association released the MLA 8th edition. The 7th edition is unacceptable for standard essays and papers.

  6. Where is MLA 8th Edition citation?

    College professors and students are severely disappointed that Microsoft has not updated to the national standard of MLA the 8th Edition. It has been almost 3 years since MLA 8th Edition was released. MLA 7th Edition is no longer a useable nor, an accepted format for MLA papers. How come Microsoft still has not updated its software to include this crucial format?

    If Microsoft markets itself to students and colleges then it needs to be current with the practices adopted by colleges in order to meet students needs. Not having MLA 8th edition is setting students back…

  11. Update Citation Styles

    Word 2016, 2019, and 365 are still behind in terms of citation styles. Now there is MLA 8th instead of Word MLA 7th and Chicago 17th instead of Word Chicago 16th. Microsoft, it's high time to update.

  12. Create an MLA format

    As a student, most of my teachers require papers to be formatted in a MLA or APA style. Having a template or button to click that would automatically format the word document into these styles would be extremely helpful and time saving!

  13. MLA Eighth Edition

    Please update the MLA References section to include the eighth edition. I really love using the references section on word because it makes my life so much easier, but my teachers are now telling me that my references are incorrect, so it would really help if that could be updated! It is a super great tool that I love using!

  15. I would be nice to have templates for MLA, and Chicago use, I have just started back to college t my age 61, and I did not know of either,

    Well the items are in use but I see your only template is APA, could you add MLA, and Chicago templates for use. thanks.
    Also, it would be nice to have a format template for a Proposed Memo format, I needed one for English for a graphic novel project and did not know how to retrieve one.

  18. MS Word automatically generates APA, MLA, and other formats

    This includes formatting for headers, plain title page, suggestions of how to cite, and how to set up a works cited page. There are many title page options but none that are simple, academic style. Having the option to choose it for formatting at the beginning could save a lot of time versus fussing with nuances that the Word program does not allow you to do (i.e. having a different header on the first page from the rest of the paper)

  19. 8 months ago one of your admins said the Auto-Correct feature would be added to the right-click drop down for words spelt incorrectly.

    Auto-correct right-click drop down actually going to be re-implemented? 8 months with no Word on the matter...

  20. Have formats ready to use rather than us having to make them.

    Have a templets or an option to have formats like MLA available to use rather than having to make them ourselves.
