  1. Fix Mouse Pointer which is broken for resizing tables in Word and Outlook 2016 in Windows 10.

    Fix Mouse Pointer which is broken for resizing tables in Word and Outlook 2016 in Windows 10.

    This issue does not exist for Excel but does in Word and Outlook. The problem was first posted at the URL below in January 2018 but no resolution has been provided for Office 365. I was able to fix on my work computer with a repair to Office 2016, but a repair to Office 365 did not work. This is not only an aesthetic issue. The small black pointer for resizing tables is hard to position and thus wears on your users wrists…

  2. Make "draft," and not "print," the default for starting or reopening a Word file.

    Starting or reopening a file, I almost never want to see it in print mode, so every time, I have select View, then select draft, then close that menu section of the screen before I start working. I just spent an hour with one of your tech support people trying to change the default, even setting it up so he could roam around my laptop himself, but there was no way to make that change. It should at least be possible to change the view default that 365 starts with.

  3. Flip or Substitute Words

    As an attorney, I am constantly needing to flip the words Petitioner and Respondent or Plaintiff and Defendant in a document. It would be great if word included a feature similar to replace or find that allowed two words to be inverted or flipped so that they can be interchanged. This could also be helpful for swapping names, dates, etc... from an old document into a new updated one.

  4. Full Word functionality

    If we are to pay a subscription fee to use this program, then it should contain the full functionality of the desktop version. For example, I need to be able to insert special characters (diacritics) on documents that I work on and this mobile app does not allow it (but it does allow the insert equation option). I would also like to be able to access a true settings menu so that I can enable/disable things such as auto correct (since I already have it disabled on my Chromebook, but Word keeps doing it anyway), able to open multiple documents,…

  5. Move app to SD card (external storage) for android phones

    All the MS apps on my android phone are unable to be moved to my default storage (SD Card). This is annoying. I often (once a month) have to uninstall Outlook or Word or OneDrive in order to free up space on my phone. Then I have to reinstall the app if I want to use it. Would not be an issue if MS apps could be stored on the SD Card.

  6. No longer see progress bar upon saving a document

    This may not be a new idea, but it is a very useful tool as the appearance of the progress meter does assure the user that the document is being used. Do bring it back.

  12. Как без лишних затрат сил и времени сделать работу Word для Windows 10 mobile удобной и эффективной

    Word в мобильном Lumia 640 LTE открывающийся кнопкой WORD практически не пригоден для работы. Word в том же телефоне , открывающийся кнопкой ПРОВОДНИК очень удобный. Почему бы его не переместить под кнопку WORD? Добавить выделение рамкой папки или файла, с которого перешел временно в другой файл, папку, затем вернулся в общую папку и хочешь его найти среди прочих. Если объектов много, это утомляет, а выходить каждый раз в "недавние" неудобно и это потеря времени.
    Надеюсь, вы отреагируете быстро.

  14. Import the equation editor to the Mobile version

    The equation editor in Word for Windows as a desktop application is necessary for mathematical use of the application, and its absence in the mobile format makes it impossible to work in such subjects with this app.

  15. Add Dyslexia font or partner with OpenDyslexic

    If not custom fonts, at least add or partner with an organization to integrate an "anti-dyslexia" font so that we can use the Word Mobile App in the class to help our students.

  17. Why so many updates... and why so laggy in typing?

    I am a peripatetic teacher visiting many schools and keeping plans in OneDrive and using word. Nearly every time you update I have to reload all my student notes wasting precious time as I cannot access them in schools as I don't get wifi access straight away... sure,y there must be a way of not having to redownload files after an update as it is almost weekly that you do an update! I'm using an iPad Air 1 which has also got a typing lag ... come on Microsoft ... do I really need to change the software I'm using. …

  18. This may not be a new idea

    This may not be a new idea but I think it is wrong to have a time limit to activate Word especially after having paid for it. This is the very first time I have ever seen this and I have downloaded lots of free and lots of apps I had to pay for and have never had a time limit or even a requirement that something had to be activated. I think this is actually a fraudulent incident and should be changed.

  20. Really hope you are not closing this (and Excel/PowerPoint) down - has dissappeared from search on PC

    I really hope that you are not closing this down as it is really useful for small form-factor tablets where you don't need and don't want a full desktop experience (and don't want to "waste" a licence on it).
