  2. Scripting command is broken

    Within the Word scripting dictionary, the ability to send the contents of a word file as a message, but not as an attachment is broken. Fixing this would be really welcomed.

  4. Please fix this problem with arrows and lines!!!

    Every time I insert an arrow shape and try to move it or resize it, the arrow goes from a straight line to having a slight diagonal. It snaps right over the vertical position, making it impossible to set the arrow straight again.
    I have read all the other topics dealing with this problem, but none had a solution that worked for me. And no, getting the arrow in exactly the right place and exactly the right size the very first time you draw it is not a solution.
    Holding shift while drawing the arrow does not make it stay…

  5. Microsoft Error Reporting & Microsoft Ship Asserts need to be upgraded to 64 bit ASAP

    Reporting this important issue: As you know, MacOS Catalina 10.15 is coming out in couple of days and I noticed that Microsoft Error Reporting & Microsoft Ship Asserts are 34 bit and they need to be upgraded to 64 bit ASAP or else they won't be working when everyone in the mac community will upgrade to MacOS Catalina 10.15. Can you kindly look into this issue asap and fix it? Thanks for your help 😀

  7. restore locked format painter functionality to Word 16

    In previous versions of Word, when format painter was locked (double clicked) and you triple clicked a line to paste the formatting, the entire line would be selected and receive the formatting. Since upgrading to Word 16, the entire line is selected, but only the first word or letter clicked on receives the formatting. Drag to select works as intended, but is tedious and prone to mistaken selections. I've tested on multiple Macs. Worked on previous versions for years. (At least since 2001, maybe earlier.) This is a big part of my work flow and I'm really hoping to get…

  8. A field code to display tomorrow's date

    When creating a priority list for tomorrow, I would like to use a field code that's as simple as the DATE field code. I don't understand why (DATE + 1) doesn't work for this. It would be very useful for managers and planners. Thanks.

  11. Force people using this feedback forum to enter their Office version number and if it is stand-alone or Office 365.

    It is aggravating trying to make sense of the issues when it is not clear what version people are discussing. If one was inclined to help, that help could make things worse if the advice given was for the wrong version.

    Furthermore, I have noticed some people posting issues in the Office for Mac area that are clearly for Office for Windows so it would be a good idea to also force people to enter what platform they use as well. The same goes for people posting Excel issues in a Word forum and vice versa.

    Once done, give readers…

  15. MacBook Pro doesn't offer File>Info>Manage Document so I can recover an earlier version of a saved doc.

    I want to be able to recover the previous version of a doc I just unintentionally overwrote. The instructions I've found don't seem to apply to Word on my MacBook Pro.

  16. Add color back to the Comment/Query balloons

    I'm an editor and work ALLLLLLL the time with track changes. It is supremely frustrating that in the current Word for Mac (2016?), the comments/queries look exactly like the insertions and deletions. Having color in the balloon allowed all parties concerned to easily locate questions or comments that needed dealing with. Now it's all just one big moosh. I can't even imagine what ran through the head of the person who decided to get rid of that feature.

  17. Quite simply - make it more like Word for Windows. Although Mac version has been improved,Windows is still much fuller and better.

    Make Word for Mac more like Word for Windows. Although Mac version has been improved, Windows is still much fuller and better. As a TV writer and producer who worked with Word since the mid 80's - pre windows - I make use of more of the aspects than I find on the Mac. I use Autocorrect extensively, for example and wish I could simply switch easily between the doc I'm working on to the Autocorrect Options screen so I can add new words to be corrected to it.

  19. spelling

    Hello, I have noticed that the Word spellchecker doesn't catch a spelling error "accidently". The correct spelling for English US is "accidentally".
    I think this should get fixed in the Word English US spellchecker glossary so if this word gets misspelled it shows as an error once the spellchecker is run.

    Best,
    Inga
