  1. reinstate the option 'view original with mark-ups' when reviewing a word document

    The old Word version gave the option to view the original text with markups. This is not possible any more and when in track-change mode, if you reject a suggestion, you must change to 'original' view to see the original word. Very, very annoying

      • Drag frequently used items from each of the Tabs (Insert, Home, Layout, etc)...

          • Please upgrade Word for Mac to the same capabilities of PC version or charge us commensurately

            I am creating forms in Word and have only half the functions Word inn PC offers. Where are all 'Content Controls'? The full gamut of options in Developer? Adobe don't discriminate against the two different platform users. Why i am being charged the same for an inferior program? How am I supposed to deliver an outcome without the necessary tools? Step up Microsoft.

            • In Word 16 Mac you can't nudge graphics left or right - only up or down.

              Hi, folks, In four words, "What were you thinking?"

              For decades, Word for Mac has always allowed you to move graphics on a page either in large increments (using the arrow keys) or in smaller increments, using the Option-Arrow. keys. In Word 16X for Mac, you have eliminated the ability to move graphics in small increments as you could before. There is a terrible workaround that has to do with grid settings, but that's a waste. The forum user below suggests you failed in "Regression Testing" - this has to be an easy, and important fix. Here is some feedback…

              • Macro buttons on quick access toolbar

                Macro buttons on quick access toolbar
                In MS Word 2007, I had the option of customizing Macro buttons on QAT with an icon. This emoji like icon was available from customize dialogue box. Now after upgrading to Word 2016, I am stumped. Customizing macro button on QAT is not available. All buttons look ALIKE!!! Pls urgently restore facility to put icons on macro buttons. Please.

                          • creating hyperlinks

                            When I click enter after a link, and it turns it into a hyperlink, then I press backspace twice, make the first backspace to go back a line to the end of the link, then the second backspace to remove the hyperlink, rather than the other way round (sometimes I just want to remove spaces after the link not lose the hyperlink)

                                  • Fix table style issues when Normal style is not Automatic colour.

                                    If the default colour, generally used by Normal text style, is anything other than Automatic [i.e. Black], the table style does not work correctly. Table title text can not be white, for instance.

                                      • 2019 word for mac

                                        This is a problem I never had with older versions of Office: Selecting a section from a PDF document and pasting it in Word, saving the word document-on reopening the same word document results in very blurred images of the original PDF sections. A most frustrating problem that should be fixed as soon as possible.
