  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

The problem is this window pops up every time I open an Office app. Since this is obviously…

  11. Please fix this problem with arrows and lines!!!

    Every time I insert an arrow shape and try to move it or resize it, the arrow goes from a straight line to having a slight diagonal. It snaps right over the vertical position, making it impossible to set the arrow straight again.
    I have read all the other topics dealing with this problem, but none had a solution that worked for me. And no, getting the arrow in exactly the right place and exactly the right size the very first time you draw it is not a solution.

  15. 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.

  16. 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!
