  1. 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.

    • Where is the touch bar support?!?!?!?!

      Your company advertised that it had already added touch bar support to office for Mac on the Microsoft blogs. However it is not installed there is no plan for it on roadmaps. This is False advertising by the Vice President of the office team!! Where is the touch bar support for the new Mac?!?!?!?!

      • 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.

        • Floating ribbon, or better: restore floating custom toolbars

          In v14 (2011), I completely eliminated the ribbon and use undocked custom toolbars only. As an editor, I am thereby able to work extremely efficiently with immediate 1-click access to the functions and macros that I use the most and no clutter of the myriad functions I almost never use. (For page layout, design, etc, I use a typesetting program, not a word processor.)

          I could spend a day customizing the ribbon, but it would remain docked to the document window, which is absurd when one has 2 or 3 windows open of the same file for serious editing (allowing,…

          • Customizable menus, not just ribbon.

            As a writer and editor, I need fast access to menu items I use all day every day, and to make life easy, hide the rest. That way the ones I need are visible and easy to click, without scrolling down a long list of items I DO NOT WANT OR NEED. This is still a techie's dream, not a product with which users can earn a living.

            • Please fix the crashing issue in Mac. The word has crashed more than a hundred times in the past month.

              The word mostly crashes when I copy and paste anything from word, pdf or anywhere else. Most of the time I lose my work and have to start over again if I have not been constantly saving it. It is counterproductive and annoys the hell out of me.

                          Office 365 (2016) issue.
                          I very frequently copy content from Excel or Powerpoint to paste into reports and other documents in WORD. In earlier office versions, the most efficient and highest resolution method to do this is to select the tables/graph or other content in Excel or Powerpoint, copy it. and paste into Word as a pdf. In WORD 2016, "Paste as PDF" is still an option in "Paste Special" but the resulting paste does not retain the formatting of the original content, which defeats the purpose of pasting as a pdf. The only other option to get a high…

                              • Why do I have to tu!rn "Wordiness" off every time I open Word?!?!?!?

                                The new grammar check is the most obnoxious thing ever. Please allow us to PERMANENTLY disable "wordiness" in the grammar options. I have to do it every time I open word. Your suggestions are terrible and often change the meaning of what I want to write. There is nothing more obnoxious than getting "corrections" from people who don't know how to write.

                                    Adobe has adopted outrageous pricing and a pricing attitude that virtually
                                    makes monthly payments similar to buying a car. Adobe has committed business suicide for the average consumer or small business. OK MS-you have seen maps where a mountain water stream has been intercepted by another stream. It's time to go to work on a moneymaker rather than a quick fix. Who will cut of the stream first-MS or Apple...

                                    • Problem with page border art rendering in MS Word for Mac 2016 (ver 15.31)

                                      When using page border art in MS Word for Mac 2016 (ver 15.31) the border does not render correctly for printing or in a pdf file. This problem occurs with all art regardless of the settings. This problem occurs with all of our printers and with all pdf file readers. So it appears the problem is with the MS software. Please fix this issue as the page border art is an important reason of using Word for our presentation materials. Please advise me when the problem is fixed. Thank you.

                                      • Please provide "Open Recent" in list form, not just as a document icon.

                                        How can I view "Open Recent" as a list instead of seeing it in a document icon form?

                                        • please fix hyperlinks in transferring .docx files to .pdf files

                                          Such an elementary failure! You must have had a million inputs on this problem. Can anyone read English back there? Can anyone read back there?
