  1. Add Mini Toolbar (Floating Toolbar) for Macs

    Please add the Mini Toolbar (Floating Toolbar) to MS Word for Macs. All of my work requires Word and this toolbar saves a lot of time!

  2. Command Click title of document window to access the document in Finder

    I would like the standard MacOS behaviour of Command Clicking on the title of the window to display the folder hierarchy, so I can access my document's location in the finder.

  6. Azure Citation Database/Source Manager Collaboration

    More people are using tablets and word online; why is there not a citation capability in this format?

    In a world where automation is more effective for productivity, formatting citation should be almost automatic, seamless. Researchers, education professionals, and students can create a database and up-vote on the format or down-vote. Additionally, you can attempt to establish a partnership with associations with this proficiency.

    You can start by creating an individual cloud citation source manager database on Azure. Enable the user to filter through and categorize their resources, by the style of writing, subject, and date.

    Furthermore, the citation manager…

  8. I would like word documents to remember the state in which they were last viewed such as outline or Print View.

    I would like word documents to remember the state in which they were last viewed such as outline or Print View. For example, I have one document that I always want to view in an outline format, and each time I open it, it opens in Print View. I change it to outline and the next document I open, opens in outline view and I need to change that to print view. Is there any way to resolve that?

  9. For multilingual documents: option to apply a different language while running spell check

    When editing a long document (such as a book) with an occasional word from another language, the user has to select "Ignore", "Ignore All", or "Add". Or, before running spell check, the user has to go through the document and select each word of a different language and apply the language to it (not feasible timewise). Another strategy has been to create separate character styles for each language (again, not feasible to use in our environment, where we have maybe 50 custom styles).
    This would be handled much better with the option to apply a different language or no proofing,…

  10. Different Last Page Option in Headers and Footers

    A lot of the company documents I create require different header and footer information and manually adding this to working documents, where pages are regularly added and removed, takes up too much time (this also includes images so IF commands don't cut it).

    Having a "Different Last Page" tick box in the Header & Footer section the same way we have the "Different First Page" would be incredibly helpful.

  11. Please create a simple way to disable the "Welcome back" message that appears when I re-open a Word document.

    I understand that the Welcome Back message is supposed to be convenient, but I find it irritating. Please create a simple way to disable this feature.

  12. deplacer une photo sur un document word

    revenir a ce qui ce faisait avant pour déplacer une photo sur un document word, c'est juste impossible maintenant, je ne comprends pas pourquoi vous avez compliqué la façon de faire. Avant il suffisait d'utiliser la souris ou les flèches, maintenant on n'a plus le choix du positionnement d'une photo. très déçu

  15. Documents on SMB server become hidden files on save

    This applies to: Word for mac documents when opened across a network from an SMB share.

    If the word document is large, say a few MB in size, saving the document will result in the document becoming a hidden file.

    This does not happen if the document is only a few kb in size.

    Because the mac system does not show hidden files, users think their word documents have been deleted. It is possible to show the document again by un-hiding it using a windows computer, however the document will become hidden again anytime a mac user opens and…

  16. Restore the "classic theme" option on Mac

    It seems the option of switching from the "colourful theme" to the more subdued "classic theme" was removed from Office for Mac earlier this year.

    It would be wonderful if this option could be restored, as myself (and I believe many other users) find this much easier on our eyes.

  17. On Launch: Priority should always be given to the File a User requested to open

    I consider this behavior to be an egregious bug. Almost an assault on your users.

    Bad Scenario 1: Double click a file with an associated extension. Action opens Word, Word opens requested file then opens most n number of most recent unclosed documents.
    Bad Result 1: User is left looking at a document from a prior session that may have absolutely no current pertinence. File requested by the user is 4 windows below and has to be tracked down.

    Bad Scenario 2: Double click a file with an associated extension. Action opens Word, A change to Word or exciting news…

  18. Quotation Marks

    Hello

    I would love to have a switch to change the Quotation Marks.

    From French Style, to the Swiss German Style and the German Style. They are all different, but I have always to change the Language to get the ones I want. So it would be cool if in the Preferences it has an option to choose which one we want.

    Thanks

  19. Restore the option to hide the status bar and/or provide a color scheme where no elements are the terrible blue color.

    I have no idea why Microsoft removed the option to hide the status bar. It can be useful if you want it, but it takes up valuable screen space. Why remove a useful option? And even worse: both color schemes mean that you have to work with a distracting blue color--for "Colorful", it is the title bar and for the ribbon, but for the "Classic" the gray status bar turns blue. For god's sake, bring back a gray-non distracting theme--at least for draft mode!

  20. Add Vim bindings

    Writing is really slow without the capability to perform Vim's text object operations. Still, I want to keep using Word for taking notes and writing papers because it's nicer than a .txt or .md file in Vim. Please add Vim bindings to Word!
