  1. Bug in Word 16.16 (180812)

    Since update to 16.16, text boxes are broken. When printing or converting to PDF, the content of the text box is duplicated, enlarged several hundred percent, and overlaps the real textbook below. This all worked fine on previous versions. Every single document I have (thousands) has a text box at the top, so this is a real issue for me.

    • Word version 16.16 broke envelope printing

      I print envelopes with word art and images. Since Word 16.16 Office 365 for Mac, the images and word art are magnified so large they do not fit on the envelope when you try to print. Everything looks perfect in Word, but when trying to print it is messed up.

      • 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…

          • Fix bug

            Fix the bug in word: Shapes containing warped text print out huge and overlapping instead of the layout shown on the screen. This started August 16, 2018, and happens on all my printers while printing from my iMac or my Macbook pro.

            • Word art no longer prints correctly

              Since the latest update, word now no longer prints word art correctly, it misplaces and enlarges it when printing onto A4.

              • Please support Word for Mac on the current plus 2 previous macOS operating systems

                https://support.office.com/article/upgrade-your-macos-to-access-new-office-365-for-mac-features-f6efc6b6-90f8-4e69-82dd-d0de32a111aa

                There is some indication that Office for Mac 2019 will only support the latest current release of macOS plus the previous operating system. This is a formal request from an Enterprise admin to have Microsoft provide support for the current macOS operating system plus the two previous operating systems.

                Apple has been absolutely horrendous in documenting and providing the appropriate management tools to deal with major restrictions they've been adding to macOS. This makes it much more difficult to deploy the latest macOS release on day 1. As an example, the majority of our users are still on macOS…

                • "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.

                        • Add LaTeX math to Word for Mac

                          Latex math is usable (apparently) in Word for Windows, but not for Mac. I'd like you to add it to the Mac version.

                          • Fix printing bugs

                            The latest update of Word for Mac 16.16 introduced a bug that makes it impossible to print or convert to PDF and preserve formatting. So far I have lost formatting for watermarks and text boxes. They are improperly scaled, improperly placed, and the text boxes are enlarged to such a great extent that they are cut off and obscure other text. The problem is evident in the print preview and extends to conversion to PDF and hardcopy printing. Until this is fixed it is impossible to distribute documents.

                                  • Image Cropping

                                    I think it would be great if you could some how make it so that when you crop an image, you can crop it in any shape you want. Right now, we can only crop by adjusting horizontally and vertically, but it would be awesome if you could crop an image like in a heart shape, or a circle.

                                    • korean cursor issue

                                      The cursor blinks too much when you type in Korean. Korean is a system that combines consonants and vowels into one character, and the cursor seems to be overly sensitive to each consonant and vowel, rather than responding in letters. In addition, there are some situations where the character may appear to be swaying from side to side while typing. It's too irritating to use the word well. Adding advanced features is a good idea, but I'd like you to solve basic problems first. Especially for Korean users.

                                      The link below shows the consonants and the cursors flicker as you…
