  1. 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.

      • Khmer Font Broken in Microsoft Word with OS X Sierra

        With the Sierra OS X update on the Mac, Khmer Unicode no longer fully renders correctly in Microsoft Word. This is a regression bug as Khmer Unicode previously worked on Mac OS X El Capitan.

        Sample Khmer text that renders incorrectly in Microsoft Word:
        ស្រស់
        ប្រើ

        Please fix this ASAP as it makes Microsoft Word useless to those of us who use it with the Khmer language.

        • Avoid 'Online Locations' dialog entirely

          When I choose File | Open , the 'Online Locations' dialog always opens first. As I don't use it, but prefer to keep my files locally, I need to choose 'On my Mac' option each time. I would like to be able to avoid this. So a preference setting to suppress 'Online locations' would be very usefulf

          • Update Word for Mojave.

            It keeps sending me messages it needs to be updated and that I should contact the developer. If your own product tells you it needs updating for compatibility, it might be a sign of sorts.

              • create custom menus

                On word 2011 and before it was possible to create custom menus, for example to store files used all the time. Or for any other frequently performed task. This should be brought back!

                • open file dialog

                  Permit us to go directly to the system file-open dialogue box. Why do we need a 2-step procedure to go access the files that are stored locally?

                        • Improving efficiency of Captions and Cross References.

                          When writing reports, especially large ones, I insert Captions and corresponding Cross References a lot to label and reference Tables and Figures. Great features. However, with Cross References, the default option is “Entire Caption”. I really cannot think of any case where I, or anyone else, would want to use “Entire Caption”. For me, the only ones that make sense for Table and Figures is to use “Only label and number”. It would be great if this option was the default, because every time I use Cross Reference I have to change the option to one I want. Its all…

                            • connecting figure caption with the paragraph.

                              It would be great if the figure caption connect with the paragraph so if I add a figure in a document, and all the figure numbers change, then the figure number mentioned in the paragraph change automatically. then I don't have to go through all my document and change the figure numbers in all of the paragraphs.

                                      • Word for Mac 16.20

                                        I am using Work for Mac (Office 365) to create a large document and have been using the cross-reference feature to hyperlink references in the text to Sections, Figures or Tables. When I set the cross-reference up, it would highlight the text with a "gray" background so the reader could easily see the cross-reference and be able to click on it to move to the appropriate section, figure or table. I recently upgraded to version 16.20 and the "gray highlight" went away. The hyperlink is still there but the only way to tell is to move my mouse over the…
