  2. Reduce The Default Margin (www.reducethemargin.com)

    The average office goer uses 10,000 sheets of A4 copy paper a year for printing.
And globally, the most favoured official software being Microsoft Office, Microsoft Word
becomes the automatic choice.

    What is cause for concern is the fact that the default setting of Microsoft Word leads to each
printed page having a wasted margin area of approximately 38%.

    A simple 25% reduction in this default margin setting on MS word can reduce the wasted area on every printed sheet and help save millions of trees in the long run.

  3. Word citations Spanish bug.

    In citations in Spanish you cannot write down accents, since there is a bug avoiding to do that. For almost a year I have sent various messages reporting that bug but you do not respond.

    Thanks

  4. Add Content Controls; Date Picker and Design Mode for Mac users

    These controls are necessary functions for the Developer ribbon. It doesn't make sense why they are not available to Mac users!

  5. Mac version is missing Apply Styles dialog box from Windows version

    Word for Windows has an "Apply Styles" dialog box with "Autocomplete style names" checkbox. This would be VERY helpful on the Mac version, so that we can apply styles by typing with autocomplete.

    Please add this feature to the Mac version!

    For details on how it works in Windows, see: https://www.linkedin.com/learning/word-2013-styles-in-depth/applying-styles-using-the-apply-styles-dialog-box

  6. Word locking up and attempting to connect to network drive from Recent Items list

    Word (or Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) is locking up and then producing an error stating it is attempting to connect to a previously used network location in the Recent Items list, when opening the application when off the network. This renders the application useless, and after acknowledging the error, the application must be force quit.

    To reproduce:


    • Open Word documents from a network share, work on it, close the document and application


    • Take the computer off the network (i.e. - Take it home), open Word. Word will then lock up for about 3 minutes and then produce an error stating it…

  7. Word: Fix freezing issues when selecting text in Catalina

    Since updating to Catalina, Word freezes whenever I select text—even just a few words. I have to manually backspace if I want to delete something and it takes forever if I have a lot of text to delete. If I forget and select text, it freezes for a good few seconds. Sometimes I have to force quit.

  8. How to change font & size of all citation numbers in a doc?

    I have Word 16 & use a recent Macbook.

    I want to re-format the endnote citation numbers that appear in the body of a document (say at the end of a sentence).

    I know how to re-format them from (say) 1 2 3 to i ii iii. But I need to format the font and size of every such number in the doc. All at once. This is because they presently appear in different fonts & sizes almost every time I insert an endnote. A way to prevent that in future would be much appreciated also.

    Thanks to all.

  9. include a view side by side option with synchronous scrolling

    Please include the option to view documents side by side with or without synchronous scrolling. this is available in windows word and I see no reason it shouldn't be for Mac.

  10. "Word Count" tool should be easier to access.

    The "Word Count" box should be a floating tool that remains open as you edit the document, or at least create a keyboard shortcut. This is a big part of the editing process for a lot of writers and its cumbersome to keep going highlight > Tools > Word Count

  11. In the advance Find and Replace re-instate font changes in the text boxes via Ctl-I, Ctl-B and Ctl-U

    In Word 2011 in the advance find and replace box the font of the word to be searched for and replaced by can be changed by the standard key strokes of Ctl-I etc.

    This was removed in Word 2016, a retrograde step for professional editors

  13. Please update Word for Mac with the option to Disable the Recent Documents list

    I connect to a windows server via smb at work, and when I access word docs stored on that server they are added to my "Recents List." Then, when I open the word app later and when not connected to the office server, the word app tries to auto load all my recent documents, some of which it cannot access because they are stored at the office server locally. This caused my Mac to auto attempt to connect to my smb server, and when it can't because I'm no longer there, the word app crashes.

    Also, when I open the…

  14. Fix the kerning problem with Word 365

    I upgraded from MS Office 2011 to MS Office 365. All my old documents are written in Times New Roman 12 point. But when I open them in Word 365, the spacing between the letters is all stretched out. Turns out there's a kerning issue in the new version of Word. I called technical support, got escalated, and was finally told there's nothing that can be done. The new version of Word has a kerning issue. Please fix this.

  17. DO REPAIR BUGS IN WORD MAC, pls

    There are plenty of BUGS in Office Mac 2019. Why don't correct them once forever instead go including useless devices such as icons?

    Read the messages. All consumers are reporting bugs and you do not pay attention to these messages.

  20. In the advance Find and Replace re-instate Cmd-F for Find Next, Cmd-R for Replace, and Cmd-A for Replace All

    Removing the capability in the upgrade from 11 to 16 is a a retrograde step to productivity, plus excessive use of the mouse, now required, leads to RSI
