  2. Word citations Spanish bug.

    In citations in Spanish you cannot write down accents, since there is a bug avoiding to do that. For almost a year I have sent various messages reporting that bug but you do not respond.

    Thanks

  3. Mac version is missing Apply Styles dialog box from Windows version

    Word for Windows has an "Apply Styles" dialog box with "Autocomplete style names" checkbox. This would be VERY helpful on the Mac version, so that we can apply styles by typing with autocomplete.

    Please add this feature to the Mac version!

    For details on how it works in Windows, see: https://www.linkedin.com/learning/word-2013-styles-in-depth/applying-styles-using-the-apply-styles-dialog-box

  4. Word: Fix freezing issues when selecting text in Catalina

    Since updating to Catalina, Word freezes whenever I select text—even just a few words. I have to manually backspace if I want to delete something and it takes forever if I have a lot of text to delete. If I forget and select text, it freezes for a good few seconds. Sometimes I have to force quit.

  5. Word locking up and attempting to connect to network drive from Recent Items list

    Word (or Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) is locking up and then producing an error stating it is attempting to connect to a previously used network location in the Recent Items list, when opening the application when off the network. This renders the application useless, and after acknowledging the error, the application must be force quit.

    To reproduce:


    • Open Word documents from a network share, work on it, close the document and application


    • Take the computer off the network (i.e. - Take it home), open Word. Word will then lock up for about 3 minutes and then produce an error stating it…

  6. Add Content Controls; Date Picker and Design Mode for Mac users

    These controls are necessary functions for the Developer ribbon. It doesn't make sense why they are not available to Mac users!

  7. Please update Word for Mac with the option to Disable the Recent Documents list

    I connect to a windows server via smb at work, and when I access word docs stored on that server they are added to my "Recents List." Then, when I open the word app later and when not connected to the office server, the word app tries to auto load all my recent documents, some of which it cannot access because they are stored at the office server locally. This caused my Mac to auto attempt to connect to my smb server, and when it can't because I'm no longer there, the word app crashes.

    Also, when I open the…

  8. In the advance Find and Replace re-instate font changes in the text boxes via Ctl-I, Ctl-B and Ctl-U

    In Word 2011 in the advance find and replace box the font of the word to be searched for and replaced by can be changed by the standard key strokes of Ctl-I etc.

    This was removed in Word 2016, a retrograde step for professional editors

  12. In the advance Find and Replace re-instate Cmd-F for Find Next, Cmd-R for Replace, and Cmd-A for Replace All

    Removing the capability in the upgrade from 11 to 16 is a a retrograde step to productivity, plus excessive use of the mouse, now required, leads to RSI

  13. Add Building Block Content Control Support

    Most Content Controls are supported in Word for Mac, with the exception of Building Block controls. Word for Mac has AutoText and the Building Block control accepts AutoText as a content type, so there's no evident reason why this doesn't work. Please add support for this.

  15. Please provide a means of turning off "Welcome back" greeting when opening word in Mac.

    Can those of us who don't want to fiddle with weird and wonderful tekky features just use something in the drop down menu to turn off this incredibly annoying feature??? You're not fooling me, I know Bill Gates could care less if I'm using word.

  16. How to change font & size of all citation numbers in a doc?

    I have Word 16 & use a recent Macbook.

    I want to re-format the endnote citation numbers that appear in the body of a document (say at the end of a sentence).

    I know how to re-format them from (say) 1 2 3 to i ii iii. But I need to format the font and size of every such number in the doc. All at once. This is because they presently appear in different fonts & sizes almost every time I insert an endnote. A way to prevent that in future would be much appreciated also.

    Thanks to all.

  17. "Save As" should show file options alphabetically.

    When I went to save a new file, it showed me recent file locations. But I could not find the folder I was looking for, since I hadn't saved anything to it for months. "Save as" options should include being able to find a folder or location alphabetically. Who remembers when you last opened everything?

  19. Restore Session / Re-open Documents from Last Session on App Launch

    Similar to a browser "reopening tabs from last session" it would be extremely helpful to have word automatically re-open any documents that were being edited when it was last quit. Older versions of Word could do this and the native Apple apps like Preview (for all its many other issues) typically do as well. This is a badly missed feature in my workflow and is something that I know a lot of people at work miss dearly. We still have one Word 2008 holdout as a result. (A security issue at this point I think). Thank you.

  20. Allow users to choose however many "Open Recent" files they want to appear under the File menu

    It is very important to restore the ability for users of all Microsoft Office 2019 for MAC applications to choose the number of Recently Opened files that appear in the "Open Recent" command under the file menu as the default number of 10 is very insufficient. For users that regularly use a large number of files, only enabling 10 to appear in that menu at most makes it very cumbersome to have to navigate through the various folders to find files that do not appear in the "Open Recent" menus.
