  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.

    • Add command that allows you to jump back to previous cursor points

      Suppose I'm reviewing a document, jumping from point to point. Now suppose I realize I need to go back to a spot I was reading several jumps ago. It would vastly speed up document navigation if there were a command that allowed me to successively jump back through my last (100, say) cursor points (and another command that allowed me to go forward). Good choices might be SHIFT-F1 for back and SHIFT-F2 for forward — or maybe SHIFT-F7 for back and SHIFT-F9 for forward, since those are already labeled with backward and forward symbols (for music and video) .

      Basically,…

      • MS Word Auto Save

        Automatic save like Pages. Simple idea, but very efficient, which adds up and one less task.

          • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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,…

                    • Could you add Nepali proofing tool to the Word 2016 Mac?

                      I frequently type in Nepali. There's a proofing tool for Nepali for Word 2016 on windows, but there's no proofing tool for Mac.
                      I think it is unfair to have certain features only for the windows version only.
                      Please look into the matter.
                      It will help me greatly!
                      Thank you!

                      • APA bibliography not sorted alphabetically for Word for Mac

                        I'm using the built-in bibliography, but the bibliography for APA is not sorted alphabetically by author, which it should be, according to the APA style guide. Furthermore, when I open a Word Document that was created in Word for Windows, and using the APA citation style, the citation style is shown as '(unknown)' on Word for Mac. Can this be fixed

                          Why is there no RTL option in Word for Mac such as exists in Word for Windows??? Or, if such does exist, where is it to be found?

                          • 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.

                              Es lamentable el funcionamiento del word, en media hora y al intentar copiar dos veces un párrafo de un word a otro se me ha colgado y he perdido por dos veces el trabajo realizado.

                              Deberían responder de estos fallos, no se si lo hacen a propósito que falle de esta manera tan lamentable el word en mac, pero realmente lo parece.

                              • Fix the bug that MS Office files size keeps increasing

                                I'm using the Microsoft Word 15.33. The docx files keep increasing after each modifying. I have already zipped the pictures, but it the problem still exists.

                                The only solution is to save big size 'docx' file as 'doc' format, the size will decrease to normal size, and then convert doc to docx...

                                I have no idea what take up the size.

                                      • Reorder styles in the Quick Style list

                                        It would be handy to have an option to reorder styles in Quick Style list. Depending on document's content and stage (e.g. creation vs final formatting), I need different styles to be accessed with a single click.

                                        • Allow users to automatically resize column width/tables to fit the screen

                                          In MS Word for Windows you can right click on a table and resize the table to fit the page size. In Mac, the only option is to resize the table to fit the content
