    • Anti-Virus affecting Word

      MS should work with Anti Virus companies to develop systems that do not damage each other. This prevents people being unable to do their work. It can affect income etc..

          • Turabian Style Paper Template for Word

            Please consider including the following "Turabian Style Paper" template with the featured templates in Microsoft Word. This template provides formatting based on the 9th edition of Kate L. Turabian’s "A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers."

            https://github.com/TypeWork/turabian-style-paper-dotm

            Given the pervasive use of Turabian's "A Manual for Writers" amongst students and faculty at colleges and universities (often required in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences), including such a template would be useful for many. At present, however, only two featured templates are provided for academic work: "APA Style Paper" and "MLA Style…

            • Bring back shortcut to group Objects to MS word again!

              MS has removed the shortcut to group objects. Before It was there. Now in 16.15 it doesn't exists anymore.

              • Allow reviewers to add a green check mark to a sentence/paragraph to indicate they like it

                When giving comments on a hard-copy of a paper/essay, teachers often put a check mark next to sections they like. It would be great if reviewers could do something similar in Word.

                    • WHY have you made it so hard to find and REPLACE double spaces between words with 16.15? As an editor i have to deal with this all the time.

                      please can you restore the simple way of finding and replacing all double spaces with a single one in Word. No idea why you've made this so complicated and unusable.

                      • STOP AUTO-BOLDING FOR THE LOVE OF GOD

                        I am in notebook mode, and typing outlines of chapters. every time i go to a new line or tab over to an indented bullet point, Word has taken it upon itself to enable the BOLD feature. I have looked on forums, changed preferences, even turned off ALL auto-correct functions and it STILL bolds these ******* words. I am currently losing my mind, and feel like i may be able to sue microsoft for psychological damages. This is cruel and unusual punishment. For the last hour i have not studied, i have wasted my life searching for answers. Please never…

                              • Add arabic or persian page numbering for Mac in new word versions

                                Hi

                                In Mac Word 2011/2016: How one can change numerals (e.g., auto page number) format from English to Context or Hindi (like in Windows). I can type in Arabic or Farsi, but for auto page numbering (header/footer), how can I change from English? It should be embedded somewhere in 'preferences', but I cannot find it.

                                  • "iPad" is spelled correctly.

                                    I know Apple is a competitor of Microsoft, but Word should not mark "iPad" as misspelled.

                                      • Please, insert the "Browse" button in the "Manage Sources" for References at Word for Mac version.

                                        This option, which is available in Word for Windows version already, make it really easier to use the "References" menu, as you don't need to write references one by one this way. Why could not be this option available for Mac version too?

                                        • I need to print portrait, 4 3.5x5.5" pages on one 8.5x11" sheet

                                          I was able to do this on an older PC. Why will this not work?
