    • create custom menus

      On word 2011 and before it was possible to create custom menus, for example to store files used all the time. Or for any other frequently performed task. This should be brought back!

      • open file dialog

        Permit us to go directly to the system file-open dialogue box. Why do we need a 2-step procedure to go access the files that are stored locally?

          • Fix problems with your program

            Here's an idea. Fix your program! It just shut down and then when re-opening made fourteen different copies of the same document for me to fish through. WHAT A NIGHTMARE!

              • Improving efficiency of Captions and Cross References.

                When writing reports, especially large ones, I insert Captions and corresponding Cross References a lot to label and reference Tables and Figures. Great features. However, with Cross References, the default option is “Entire Caption”. I really cannot think of any case where I, or anyone else, would want to use “Entire Caption”. For me, the only ones that make sense for Table and Figures is to use “Only label and number”. It would be great if this option was the default, because every time I use Cross Reference I have to change the option to one I want. Its all…

                  • connecting figure caption with the paragraph.

                    It would be great if the figure caption connect with the paragraph so if I add a figure in a document, and all the figure numbers change, then the figure number mentioned in the paragraph change automatically. then I don't have to go through all my document and change the figure numbers in all of the paragraphs.

                          • Lose the 'Welcome Back' notification.

                            Please drop the 'Welcome Back' notification when a work in progress document is opened or, provide an option to turn it off. It is an inane annoyance. We are not children.

                            • Word for Mac 16.20

                              I am using Work for Mac (Office 365) to create a large document and have been using the cross-reference feature to hyperlink references in the text to Sections, Figures or Tables. When I set the cross-reference up, it would highlight the text with a "gray" background so the reader could easily see the cross-reference and be able to click on it to move to the appropriate section, figure or table. I recently upgraded to version 16.20 and the "gray highlight" went away. The hyperlink is still there but the only way to tell is to move my mouse over the…

                                • Keyboard shortcut for applying a style

                                  In Word 2011, I could press a keyboard shortcut to jump to the Style field in the formatting pane, then type the name of the style I want to apply. I cannot find a way to do this now.

                                  I need to apply paragraph and character styles quickly, by keeping my hands on the keyboard. I don't want to have to use the mouse/trackpad to click in the Styles panel.

                                  Possible?

                                    • Sticky notes that attach to a Word document and can be

                                      Users could highlight an area on a document (word, phrase, section, etc.) and attach a "sticky note" that hovers on the document and can give further information. I realize you can do something like this with the "Insert/Comment" feature, but rather than have them off to the side, they notes could be right above the pertinent section. Sort of similar to the comment form in Adobe Acrobat. But as a writer, having notes right at a particular section is visibly and informationally useful.

                                        • Feature Request: Ability to set Language in Table Style

                                          Once a Table Style has been assigned a languge, it is impossible to remove or change it.
                                          This is clearly illusteated in this post https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/ms-word-how-to-set-the-language-for-a-table-style/71f83070-fea5-4929-be73-df71269d4eba

                                          Since it is SOMEHOW possible to set the language for a Table Style, it is only fair that we should be allowed to edit it.
