  1. Behavior when Clicking TOF Link

    When clicking the link in a TOF the user is transported to the location of the Figure, but the caption, itself, is centered in the viewing area. In many cases that results in much of the Figure, itself, being outside the viewing area causing the user to then have to scroll to see the entire Figure... They've already seen the caption in the TOF but now want to see the Figure.

    It would be much more elegant if clicking the TOF link caused the Figure to be centered in the viewing area rather than the caption.

    • Add command that allows you to jump back to previous cursor points

      Suppose I'm reviewing a document, jumping from point to point. Now suppose I realize I need to go back to a spot I was reading several jumps ago. It would vastly speed up document navigation if there were a command that allowed me to successively jump back through my last (100, say) cursor points (and another command that allowed me to go forward). Good choices might be SHIFT-F1 for back and SHIFT-F2 for forward — or maybe SHIFT-F7 for back and SHIFT-F9 for forward, since those are already labeled with backward and forward symbols (for music and video) .

      Basically,…

        • Add the automatic spaces back to the times symbol in equation editor.

          Up until a few weeks ago, there has always been automatic spacing around all operators in equation editor. After a recent 2017 update, the times multiplication symbol no longer automatically spaces properly. All other operators continue to automatically space. This automatic spacing for the times symbol still exists in PPT and Excel, just not Word for Windows or Word for iOS. It looks like a glitch that went out in the last update.

          • Easily! Give us LISTS, not icons. Allow us to sort list alphabetically, or by date.

            Save space and simplify searching. List documents etc. as lists either an alpha sort oe by date saved.

            • Match the iOS Mac version with the Windows PC version! Why is the "Review" section non-existent on Mac?

              It's very frustrating to have to remember two different programs depending on whether I'm using an iOS Mac or a Windows PC. The menu options are very different and the capabilities for a Mac are limited. Why would you create two different programs under the same name? MAKE THEM MATCH. Additionally, formatting text is difficult, and the dictionary does not recognize common and correctly spelled words, constantly underlining and suggesting rewording that does not belong at all.

              • Put colors back in the quick access toolbar icons

                Until Word 2016, icons in the quick access toolbar had colors. Now they are monochrome. This makes it much more difficult to tell what the icon represents. The problem is compounded by the fact that many of the icons have very similar appearances without color (e.g. File and Save As). Please restore color to the quick access icons---- the monochrome approach is a big step backward.

                • MS Word Auto Save

                  Automatic save like Pages. Simple idea, but very efficient, which adds up and one less task.

                  • Converting .doc to matching .pdf depends upon font

                    1. I like the Avenir font, but have found it causes formatting problems in the converted PDF version of a DOCX document when the “Best for electronic distribution”, rather than the “Best for printing” PDF conversion option, is used.

                    A PDF version is produced that contains more characters per line than the DOCX original, resulting in a PDF version of a DOCX page that contains the contents of that page plus some of the following page also.

                    In my case, this resulted in a 10 page .docx document occupying just 8 pages of the .pdf version.

                    2. It also results…

                        Create a stable version of the product. I have lost countless hours during attendance at school. When I try to change the font Word locks up, and apparently Word for Mac docent have an auto save feature.

                        • Move images horizontally in small increments not rotate

                          In 2011 Word you can move an image in small increments by holding down the option/alt key and using the arrow keys up and down and side to side. In 2016 you can do all of that except side to side in small increments. Please amend the app to do so

                              • New window location as a pref

                                new doc windows are shaded down and to the right of previous windows to the point of being ridiculous, ending up mid screen. This should be an optional preference. Wastes my time moving them to Up L corner, which I need to do to avoid accidentally clicking on another window behind the one I'm working on. I can use the menus above and in Mac Dock to find them.

                                      • I suddenly cannot open Word documents I previously created!!!

                                        This is with a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.9.5----pretty horrible and just occurred in the last couple of days! This also happened to my husband, using a MacBook Air and newer version of OS X.
