  2. When opening, editing and saving an RTF file need to stop the file size massively increasing

    When I open, edit and save an RTF file in Word for Mac, the file size increases dramatically. Microsoft Word for Windows have a solution for this, I would like Word for Mac to have a solution too.

  3. Word for Mac 2016 - Table Properties “Alignment”

    Word for Mac 2016 - Table Properties dialog is confused, disorganized.

    Alignment settings are scattered between two tabs.
    Disorganized Scatter: tab Cell “Vertical Alignment” to group with “Horizontal Alignment”.

    Alignment naming convention is not consistent in Tables Properties.
    Naming convention: tab Table “Alignment” should be renamed to “Horizontal Alignment”.

    Suggestion: rename tab Table “Alignment” to “Horizontal Alignment”.
    Suggestion: move tab Cell “Vertical Alignment” to tab Table “Vertical Alignment”.
    Suggestion: move tab Table “Text Wrapping” field to tab Cell “Text Wrapping”.
    Suggestion: move tab Table field button “Positioning” to tab Cell under “Text Wrapping”.

  4. Decrease the installation size

    It would be great if the minimum required disk space for installation could be reduced, it seems that office 2011 was much smaller

  5. Show All Revisions Inline BY DEFAULT

    Show All Revisions Inline (or Show Only Comments and Formatting in Balloons) by default (for all documents). It is more convenient for most of users.

  7. make updates smaller

    The updates to Office 2016 happen at least once a month and are over 1GB in size. It's like re-installing the entire product each update. This is unacceptable, especially when you want the latest security and feature updates, but have a monthly Internet download cap to manage and you have 2 computers to update.

  9. Add a button o shortcut for going back to the starting point after visiting a hyperlink

    Please, add an easy way to return to the starting point after clicking on a cross-reference, element of an index or any reference field with a hyperlink to other part of the same document. It would be very useful and time-saving.

  10. Make it possible to hide part of the document in a similar way as in Excel!

    I frequently want to print or show just parts of the document that I've written and wonder why it doesn't seem to exist a fast and easy "select and hide" - function for doing so?

  13. Allow us to copy and paste photos into a document on line, not just uploading a filename.

    I have photos I need to copy and paste from another document. They don't have filenames in my computer. But I need to insert them into a final document I am co-athoring with a Word Processing volunteer in Dropbox.

  14. Don't Use Word Online

    Don't use word online and go back to using word (the app on your desktop) because sometimes word online won't work due to internet complications.

  15. Increase filename field in "Save As..." bar

    Filename field in "Save As ..." dialog box is very short. The insertion of long filenames (more then 30 symbols) is inconvenient.
    Need to appropriate a long name to the file arises quite often.
    The filename field in Word for Mac doesn't increase by changing the size of "Save As ..." dialog window (as opposed to Word for Windows).

  18. Let us create 1 "Backup folder"

    Activating the "Always create backup copy" in Word means you'll create a backup folder with the files name in the same folder, which starts to pollute your folders after a while.

    Let us create 1 back folder with all backup files...
