  11. 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.

  15. Add Support for OpenType Character Variants

    The OpenType font standard has a "character variants" (or "CV") feature to help provide glyph variants of encoded characters. While many fonts include character variants, they are not accessible in the Microsoft Office font dialog.

    The OpenDocument Text format, and CSS, both support the character variant feature. Unfortunately, the display of the variant glyphs will vanish when these document formats are imported into Microsoft Word.

    By comparison, a compete product, LibreOffice, has supported the feature since version 3.4 which was released in 2013.
