  1. 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.

              • 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.

                • I cannot change the language to English (UK)

                  The language automatically reverts back to English US as the default each day! Please solve the problem.

                  • Define icons for commands in Quick Access ToolBar

                    Many Commands when put into the QAT appear with a generic Circle icon which cannot be customised or changed, making it impossibe (without hovering over each Circle icon) to tell which Circle should perform which command.

                    • Option for alternative language from spelling grammar tool

                      Including the option for alternative language eligible for current spelling and grammar without having the user to update the current default language maybe helpful

                      • Please add "format painter" to the ALL COMMANDS list

                        For some reason, this is missing from the ALL COMMANDS list when I try to add it to the Quick Access Toolbar. On Mac, it's called "copy formatting" (Windows is "format painter") but neither is shown in the ALL COMMANDS list. Please add this!!!

                        • Grammar checker inferior to past WORD versions

                          In WORD 2016 I am frequently given automatic suggestions for changes in grammar. In almost all cases, I have to ignore the suggestions as they are often suggesting a dumbed-down alternative that does not convey the fine distinctions in meaning intended. I think this is part of a bigger problem in the deterioration of English grammar. For example, if I write "He ran very quick" in WORD 2008 for Mac, the grammar checker suggests replacing "quick" (an adjective) with "quickly" (an adverb) which is the correct grammatical form to use in this sentence. In WORD 2016, this grammatical error is…

                            • Smooth Typing Cursor on Mac

                              This is simply ridiculous. The Excel 2016 team has already successfully implemented the cell selection animations, why is the Office 2016 team falling behind them?

                              When typing on Windows, the text cursor GLIDES from word to word by default through smoothening animations. On mac this is not enabled by default and in fact is not even an option. Hopefully this is only a temporary setback and will soon be included in an update.

                              Unsure if you are willing to look at other website links but here is an image: http://www.laptopmag.com/images/wp/purch-api/incontent/2013/08/qbfox2.gif

                                How can I view "Open Recent" as a list instead of seeing it in a document icon form?

                                  • 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.

                                      • Allow disabling of Office AutoCorrect to use Apple AutoCorrect instead

                                        Apple AutoCorrect is much more powerful for word replacement. For example: typing "I wrmt to thr stote" corrects properly to "I went to the store" in Apple Notes and other Apple apps, but does not in Office Apps. Please find a way to incorporate Apple autocorrect.
