  1. Fix freezing Word when saving a document in a newly created folder

    I use Word v 15.41 on a Mac with High Sierra.
    1 I open a document from an email in Mail
    2 I save the document using the 'Save as' option
    3 I create a new folder
    4 Word freezes.
    The file is not saved correctly (file size 0 KB) and I have t force stop Word. This sucks.

    • side by side view for two open documents!

      In Word 2016' View menu, there should be an option for a side by side view for two open documents! This exists in Windows; why not Mac?

        • Can't insert a style break in Word for Mac.

          It would be great if you could insert a style break in Word for Mac. As it is, a user needs to either (a) copy and paste one; or (b) edit the document using Word for Windows.

          • make keyboard shortcuts work reliably with non-us keyboards (e.g. outline view)

            Word's outline view is a great feature, with keyboard shortcuts it allows moving around and editing a document really quickly.

            On my Mac laptop the shortcut to expand a heading (Control + Shift + Plus sign) does nothing. This is because I have a portuguese keyboard, where the plus sign is a primary key that is altered into asterisk when Shift is pressed. Typing Control + Plus sign directly, forgoing Shift, does not work either.

            These shortcuts should work for non-us keyboards too, or at least it should be possible to access the respective commands in the "Customize keyboard" dialogue…

            • Bring back the ability to store an address

              Word (2008?) USED to let one store a list of regularly used address.
              WHy remove that feature (along with the so very useful work menu).

                • Navigating in word

                  Bring back the navigation features of word 2011. In the window, if you clicked on the arrows at the bottom of the scroll bar, you'd go to the next page, which was way eaiser than any way to do so in current version. And, at bottom of window, you could type in page number and go to. You can do both of these things now, but only by more steps and menus.

                  • change the color of just one page

                    it should be possible to change the color of just one page, i.e. to have a dark-grey colored page e.g. when a new chapter starts - just this page in grey, all the other pages in normal white

                        • "All Markups" can be visible even when items are unchecked in the "Markup Options" menu, creating a major and confusing contradiction.

                          It's possible to have "All Markups" visible when, in fact, items in the pull-down menu under "Markup Options" are unchecked (e.g., "Insertions and Deletions"). When you're going through multiple rounds of a document between writers an editors, this is VERY confusing, because writers open documents with "All Markups" visible but don't see any edits/revisions. This seems like a contradiction and states something that isn't technically true. It seems like "Custom Markups" would be a better label than "All Markups," as it would let the user know that certain items in the "Markup Options" menu may be unchecked. To be able…

                              • Add an option to ignore articles when sorting.

                                In English, articles are customarily ignored when sorting titles. For example, the position of “A Clockwork Orange” in an alphabetical list of titles is based on the word “Clockwork,” not the article “A.” Likewise, “The Tempest” goes under “Tempest,” not under “The.” It would be great to have an “Ignore Articles” option for sorting by text.

                                • Nothing was feeding back when KaiTi(楷体) font selected

                                  After installing the latest update vision for Word 16.9(180109), something goes wrong with fonts and character display. I often use regular script for Chinese character which also named KaiTi(楷体) for academic needs. The previous vision was quite qualified for that work. But now there's something wrong with KaiTi character's display in this vision. When I want to use "KaiTi" character in my document and select it , nothing was feeding back at all on the screen, but the Chinese character which use KaiTi type in my previous documents can demonstrate normally. I would love some help from you.

                                  • Provide info for all commands

                                    There are a number of places in Word 2016 where lists of available commands appear. For example, there's a list of All Commands in the dialog box for customizing the keyboard shortcuts and another list in the preference setting for modifying the ribbon and quick-access toolbar. First of all, the name of each command should be the same in every list; it's not consistent at all. Second, an clear brief explanation or description for each command should appear in a tooltip and/or in the dialog box for every single command and in every list of commands; it's there for customizing…

                                        • Double click to transfer to a field

                                          It would be good if we had an option in Word for Mac that when we clicked on a field link like a cross reference for Figure, we were not automatically transferred to the caption. We often want to edit a field, and one doesn't always think of ensuring that one does a right click. If we could have an option to transfer to the field with a double click, this would be intuitively easier.
