  1. Please add names to database to avoid embarrassing situations!

    My name is normally changes to "Sushi" and both my colleagues and students find it embarrassing. Could you please add less known names to the database so that autocorrect or red squiggle are not triggered?

  2. latest updates has broken the "show all nonprinting characters" preferences.

    spaces show up as black dots (instead of blue) and you can turn them all on or all off but nothing in between.

  3. Updates for Word

    I am frankly appalled that such a prestigious program would not already have its updates set up to be automatically checked and renewed. I have to redo an entire research paper due to the program's lack of notification that I needed an update. I clicked "save" and the entire document turned into symbols and was indecipherable. I do not think that it is my responsibility to have a Time Machine set up when I should be perfectly confident that my document will save as it always has. Please figure out a way to PERMANENTLY remind users of updates and not…

  5. Bringing up created Word documents

    After the installation of El Capitan, I cannot bring up an individual Word document. It brings up all Word documents at once that I saved after the installation. How can I bring up one at a time without it bringing up all? They appear to be attached to one another.

  6. Please add an option to automatically and simultaneously save to computer and to OneDrive

    Please add an option somewhere in word so that whenever we press Command + S or Ctrl + S MS Word will automatically save to BOTH OneDrive AND our computer in a selected area.

  7. Audio recording in Notebook Layout (Mac 2011) regularly freezes Word

    This has happened for years, both with my Macbook Pro using OS 10.6.8 and now OS 10.11.2. After stopping and starting the recording 3-10 times, WORD freezes. And in agreement with another comment, please don't lose either Notebook Layout or the recording feature. Both incredibly useful!

  8. Fix the Default Language for Office Applications on Mac

    When you open any of the Office applications for Mac, the default language dictionary should be based on the preferred language -Primary Language in Language and Region System Preference and NOT the keyboard configuration. Please fix this. Many people travel or have to use a keyboard that is from a different country than the language they want to write and spell check in.

  11. Visible Save button on Windows 2008 for MAC

    When saving a file, the file save screen allows me to choose all features and options. However, I can click on the save button because it is below the screen. This problem began when I upgraded to Yosemite.

  13. Word 2011 works better than Word 2016

    It is a pity that Word 2016 can not open a file of 12 MB on different computers. Office 2011 opens on three kicks with the same hardware.

    And I say that is a real shame because the UI was lovely but applications Excel, Outlook and Word weak in its programming, as well as consume more resources.

    They should bring to the attention of those responsible for programming this comment.

  14. Exclude dictionary for Word for Mac

    There are many spellings in the standard dictionary that I would like to disallow in my documents. I need the ability to create an exclude dictionary so that these undesired spelling will be flagged with a red squiggle.

  17. Tools - language. Please fix this long term problem.

    Choosing English UK ALWAYS coverts back to English US within docs even set as default at template level, sometimes within 1sec! Then you go through the process again and it might stay around until you have finished for the day. Open the doc the next day and it is back to English (US). Exceedingly annoying. It would be great if this could be resolved.

  18. problems opening password protected files.

    When I decided to cancel opening a password protected file I keep getting an error window, when there has been no error . It asks if I want to send a notice to Microsoft. I don't then the program closes.

    It has only been since a recent update.
