  3. Add Mini Toolbar (Floating Toolbar) for Macs

    Please add the Mini Toolbar (Floating Toolbar) to MS Word for Macs. All of my work requires Word and this toolbar saves a lot of time!

  4. Option To Turn Off Cloud Fonts in Word for Mac

    Please provide an option to turn off cloud fonts in the Mac version of Word as you do in the Windows version. I've had to return to version 16.16 to get away from such a large font menu.

  6. Add choice to NOT share diagnostic data

    After the latest Office update, every time I open an Office app, I am presented with a window with the heading, "Share how you use Office" and given two choices: "Full diagnostic data" and "Basic diagnostic data." However, I don't wish to automatically share any diagnostic data, although there is no option for that. However, I am not forced to make a choice, as I can simply click the red "X" to close the window and continue to use Office as normal. The problem is this window pops up every time I open an Office app. Since this is obviously…

  7. Lose the 'Welcome Back' notification.

    Please drop the 'Welcome Back' notification when a work in progress document is opened or, provide an option to turn it off. It is an inane annoyance. We are not children.

  8. Please get rid of message about downloading fonts

    Every time I want to change a font in WORD, I get a string of messages saying something like "Microsoft wants to dowload the font "some obscure font name". [Skip] or [Download]. So i have to skip 4 or 5 such messages each time. Please fix this

  9. Macro buttons on quick access toolbar

    Macro buttons on quick access toolbar
    In MS Word 2007, I had the option of customizing Macro buttons on QAT with an icon. This emoji like icon was available from customize dialogue box. Now after upgrading to Word 2016, I am stumped. Customizing macro button on QAT is not available. All buttons look ALIKE!!! Pls urgently restore facility to put icons on macro buttons. Please.

  10. Mini tool bar for MacOS Office Suite!

    This was so useful in the Window's version because I wouldn't have to move my mouse so much to make highlights/edits. My school issues MacBooks, so this would be very helpful as a student working with a lot of powerpoint and word documents!

  11. Update Word for Mojave.

    It keeps sending me messages it needs to be updated and that I should contact the developer. If your own product tells you it needs updating for compatibility, it might be a sign of sorts.

  12. Please allow images in PDF format to be pasted into Word (/Powerpoint) without destroying their quality

    (also posted for PowerPoint)

    I love being able to take PDF screenshots or figures and paste them into documents, so that the quality of the documents remains high and the images aren't pixilated.

    Unfortunately, with the latest updates to Office 2019 / Office 365 (at least with 16.21 190117), images inserted into PowerPoints and Word documents as PDFs become pixilated and desaturated as soon as the file is saved. The results look awful on any high quality display, and are unusable for presentations or reports (even sometimes illegible altogether).

    This has made it capturing screenshots on a Mac or exporting…

  14. Spelling & grammar check = grey box on 10.14

    Ever since I updated to 10.14 (macOS Mojave), Spelling & Grammar check will only show the first word correctly.
    Words after that can't be seen because the spelling check box is all grey.

    Need to close and do it again and again and again since only the first word isn't covered by grey.

    This is with Word 16.16 fully updated and 16.17.

  15. Word 2016 on macOS hangs up when opening document which has non-existing data source referenced via AppleScript

    Steps to reproduce:

    * Create recipent list CSV file and save it anywhere
    * Create new blank Word document
    * Start mail merge as letters and attach previously created recipient list CSV file
    * Save and close the document
    * Delete or rename the previously selected CSV file

    When now opening the Word document again, Word claims about missing data source as expected. Do not save the Document when trying this to keep the non-existing data source referenced.

    Execute the following AppleScript (e.g. in Script Editor, adjust path to Word document):

    set mergefile to POSIX file "/Path/to/Document.docx"
    tell application "Microsoft…

  16. "Welcome back" not welcome

    I really think the “Welcome back” thing is a terrible idea – first because it’s a pointless irritation for almost everybody, but second because it comes across as Microsnoop surveilling our activites (down to the level of how much we read our own stuff!), an impression I would think Microsoft, if it has three brain cells, would go out its way to avoid, not to reinforce.

    There should be a way of getting rid of it, forever.

  19. Accept / Reject in comment and track changes balloons

    Please, please, please bring this functionality back. I'm wasting so much time having to mouse up to the top navigation bar every time I want to close or accept a tracked change or comment.
