  4. Remove the rule that we must rename a .pdf or else it locks up the word document. It causes frustration and wasted time.

  6. Drawing Canvas

    Word for Windows has supported a Drawing Canvas forever, and I had hoped that it would be brought to Word for Mac 2016.

    While one can draw and group individual elements, it is nowhere as convenient as designating an area for a picture and then drawing in that area. Plus it would allow compatibility with Word for PC!

  7. I'm moving to Pages; I've just lost 5 hours of my work. Word just crashed down and the auto recovery function didn't work. Word is a fraud.

    Moving to Pages;
    I've just lost 5 hours of my work. Word just crashed down without any reason and the auto recovery function didn't work. Word is a fraud.

  8. Find and Replace only once

    Sometimes I'm not quite sure yet if a Find and Replace operation is going correctly, and I want to see what it does for immediate feedback. In such a case I would like to have the option to Find and Replace only once, instead of what I usually do, which is to hit Replace, then click on the document, then press shift+F5 to go back to the last edit.

  10. Please improve the VERTICAL ALIGNMENT feature.

    Even though Word is not technically a page layout program, it could still be an excellent application for designing books. All it lacks is a good vertical alignment/justification feature. Then the bottom lines on each page can be made flush with each other.

    Currently, Word's vertical alignment is achieved by adding space before the paragraphs — meaning there will be different amounts of spacing before paragraphs on different pages. This is a rather stupid idea (sorry to be blunt) — has anyone ever seen any document where paragraph spacing varies widely from page to page?

    Instead, programs like inDesign accomplish…

  11. Portuguese: pre-reform forms

    Since version 15.21, Word stopped recognizing pre-reform text, in Portuguese, although that option is selected. Please correct the bug, since there are many people still writing with pre-reform text.
    This bug is only in Word, not in other MS apps (PowerPoint and Excel).

  14. Improve digital signatures

    Improving digital signatures, I believe that in the near future this will be a feature that is used much because the tendency is to stop using paper, so the use of alternative mechanisms such as digital signatures (certificates) or (biometrico as tablets wacom) will be one of the features that users will use daily.

    Currently the functionality of digital signatures work well, however as a user think it could be improved by including more information regarding errors during the process of signing, suggestions on how to fix some errors in the firms, make more beautiful generally provide more elements tools…

  15. Better implementation of two-up printing

    If I set up a 5.5 x 8.5-inch document size and print two-up on an 8.5 x 11-inch sheet of paper, the result looks like two sheets crammed into a 5.5 x 8.5-inch space near the top center of the letter-size paper; it’s not spread out over the letter-size paper. I need to be able to set one size for the document pages (e.g. 5.5 x 8.5-inch) and another size for the printer pages (e.g. 8.5 x 11-inch) and print two-up at 100% scale.

  16. Fix it

    Fix your crap program so that people like me and my assistant don't have to wasting time trying and failing to sent a simple Word document in the Final version, i.e., without the changes showing. We finally gave up and had to send Final Showing Markup. My guess is Microsoft passed along defective versions of Word to Apple because Apply has been running circles around the clods at Microsoft for about 15 years

  17. Integrate mac OS's spell checker into Word.

    I have invested heavily in customizing mac OS's custom dictionary. Additionally, I find that mac's spell checking to be more reliable and easy to use.

  18. I can't save Word documents anymore

    I can't save Word documents anymore with 'Save as', because of a "frozen" popup screen with an 'Options' and a 'Compatibilty Report' button, which seems to de-activate the save possibilities.. The 'Save' and 'Save as' in the 'Bestand' (File or Document?) menu are inactive.
    I checked that my Word for Mac version is up to date.
    What caused this and how can I make my Word for Mac functioning again, because in this way it has becom useless?

  19. Fix table re-draw.

    Tables in Mac 365 are very unreliable. Borders don't redraw correctly; text entry sometimes slows to a crawl. So bad that I have to revert to Word 2011 (14.6.9) to get work done.
