  2. Hyperlink to paragraph in document, similar to OneNote

    Hyperlink to paragraph in document, similar to OneNote

    In OneNote I can copy a link to a specific place in the note. This link in a Word doc works quickly and reliably without on any device (not OneDrive dependent).

    Word needs the same functionality. Some exists -- bookmarks work very well. It is possible to hack a link to a specific place, but it creates warnings. Word should just have this functionality built in – especially with OneNote which is designed to play nicely with Word.

  3. I just had a WONDERFUL experience with tech support and marketing...

    ... and wanted to see that credit is given to the people who helped me.
    Date: May 24, 2019
    Time: approximately 2:15 PM, Eastern
    Chandra at tech support gave me excellent information and was VERY helpful when we discovered I had purchased the wrong version of Office 365 for my needs. He then went the extra mile in explaining all of this to Maya in billing, who quickly and cheerfully refunded the "wrong" product and allowed me to purchase the right one (Office 365 Personal).

    I was with IBM Tech support from 1981 through 1991 and only hope that I…

  4. Please bring back fill option in page colour.

    The image distorts with every other work around. i dont understand why you would get rid of the only thing that works for apply backgrounds.

    you have provided no work arounds for this and your support team can not advise of options to help or workarounds because they have no idea. instead they ask me to pledge to you to bring it back.

    Please bring it back you are causing unnecessary headaches for your customers and if you plan to get rid of a tool or options you need to train your support team of the work arounds and what…

  5. word window

    Before I updated Microsoft when the Word window opened it would be a large window. After the update Microsoft Word opens up in a small window to the left of my screen instead of spread out across my screen. I called Microsoft three times and no one knows how to fix this I am very angry. Took away hours of my life to try and fix the annoying problem when the solution is a better Microsoft update!!

  6. Managed Preference to show workgroup templates on launch

    Hi,

    In my organization I have distributed our company office templates and they are now located on all our machines in /Application Support/Office Templates/

    Though our MDM provider (We're an all Mac unit) I set the following managed preference in order to set the workgroup template directory location:

    <key>DocsUICustomWorkgroupTemplatesLocationKey</key>
    <string>/Library/Application Support/Office Templates/</string>

    This works, and in both Excel, Word and Powerpoint our templates show up under the Work templates pane.

    Here comes the issue: With the new updates to Office, which are very nice, they all launch on the Frontpage pan in the window that opens upon launch. Previously it…

  8. 1. Concordance feature 2. with a Click to the Index list

    Hello

    1. I would love to have a statistic feature which list all words like a concordance. Which we can sort by alphabet order, which comes more then 5 or 20 times etc. uniqueness
    2. I'm able with a double-click or a right click to send the words from the concordance list to the Index list, so they are then in the Index Verzeichnis.

    Thanks

  10. Please bring back Notebook view!

    The One Note "replacement" is overbloated and unusable. I've organized my life in Notebook view for years. Now I can't upgrade beyond 15.40!

  12. Design Mode from the Developer Ribbon on MS Word 2016 on Mac?

    Why on earth can MAC OS users not have design mode on MS Word 2016? I cannot edit a University Ethics form until I use a Windows computer?!

  13. Restore Session / Re-open Documents from Last Session on App Launch

    Similar to a browser "reopening tabs from last session" it would be extremely helpful to have word automatically re-open any documents that were being edited when it was last quit. Older versions of Word could do this and the native Apple apps like Preview (for all its many other issues) typically do as well. This is a badly missed feature in my workflow and is something that I know a lot of people at work miss dearly. We still have one Word 2008 holdout as a result. (A security issue at this point I think). Thank you.

  14. Please consider making the IPA font compatible with the Apple OS font library. The symbol browser is not functional for IPA.

    The IPA font does not appear to be available in Office 365 (Apple OS) as it was in Microsoft Office 2011 and previous versions. The IPA font, within the advance browser, is incomplete and inaccurate. The design team should consider adding this font for those who have access to different languages. Alternatively, provide a font from the drop-down menu within Word.

  19. Please enable alphabetically ordering the references in APA

    Please enable alphabetically ordering the references in APA. It is a big inconvenience for researchers, especially this is a basic requirement. It should have an inbuilt option when we select the bibliography table

  20. The wordcount feature on the earlier version ofWord 2011 is not available for Word in Office 365

    The wordcount feature on the earlier version ofWord 2011 is not available for Word in Office 365. I need this feature which gives me a word count for any word in the document, which identifies the specific word out of the word at that point in the document.
