    • You know how you have tabs at the bottom of Excel spreadsheets so you can have more than one set of data in one file? You need that in Word.

      Imagine that in Word, you could have your cover letter and resume in one file that has tabs at the bottom (one you denote as cover letter, one you denote as resume, and you name the file after the company you're applying to), just like Excel. Excel offers you the ability to have all those tabs/spreadsheets in one file. Word should do the same. I would really use this feature often if it existed.

          • Latest Update for Office 2016 caused issue in predictive Chinese input in Word

            Having installed the latest update for Office 2016 on OS Sierra (10.12.6) in mid Sept 2017, the predictive CHINESE input in Word has been handicapped (PowerPoint and Excel work fine) - it remains with partial predictive in nature but not as complete as in Notes, PowerPoint and Excel. I upgraded to Office 2016 in order to get rid of the "predictive Chinese" input issue in Office 2011 on OS Sierra, but now the issue is back again. Please fix!

            • Word Notebook layout. It needs the abitilty to make sub-sections complete with header. I want to classify sections under headings,

              I want to be able to make sub-sections complete with header. I dislike the way Onenote saves it won't let me have control, I have nearly lost all my work in one note because one computer broke down. I do not like it. I want Word to have a notebook template that works properly.

              • rid13 error

                Please address the issue where images copied directly from PowerPoint into Word using "Paste special" or "Paste as Picture" are removed when reopening the file to a rID13 error. For example, if I make a diagram in PowerPoint and copy it into Word, it will not be present the next time I open the Word document. In the past, I got around this error by (inconveniently) doing many cut-pastes on the image to somehow implant it in the Word file, but this no longer works.

                • treat people with human decency

                  I have had a truly awful experience today with Microsoft. I am seriously considering a class action law suit. I am locked out of my files, which has caused real problems with my work. Their renewal system is not letting me renew my account. Their bot bullshit is not helping at all and I got disconnected when I try to use chat (which took doing access in the first place.) Has anyone else had similar problems with Microsoft? This is not acceptable behavior by a company that has a monopoly on products necessary for work.The company needs to be responsive…

                  • Need "Mark as Final" feature for Powerpoint on Mac

                    The Mark as Final feature for PowerPoint and Word does not exist on Mac. It makes it difficult to get the same seamless experience and capabilities for PPT across systems. Please resolve this issue.

                    • Separate selection

                      Since the September 2017 update, I can no longer select two separate words at the same time. It's very inconvenient. Thank you if you can fix that !

                      • Groundbreaking idea: typing

                        Instead of new ideas, how about getting the old basic ones to work consistently?

                        How can MS Word in 2017 have performance issues with SLOW TYPING and PASTING from a webpage?

                        I know you must have smart people working at MS but please, fix the basics before trying new groundbreaking ideas

                        With love from a frustrated medical researcher who just wasted 2 hours researching how to get MS Word to allow me type like a normal person.

                        • Office 365 Reactivated, Can't Edit Files Anymore

                          I had to restore my Mac desktop from a Time Machine backup, and (of course) I had to reactivate my employer-provided Office 365 subscription, which had previously allowed me to edit files, no problem. Now I get an error message saying something to the effect "your account doesn't allow editing on a Mac. Please contact your admin..."

                          • Word 2011 Trashed my Equations

                            I saved a Word 2011 (Mac) .docx file to iCloud and my MathType equations came back uneditable. Copying and pasting a paragraph with equations from a different Mac .docx file caused all the pasted equations to be raised above the normal position. It's 2017, why can't MathType and Word function well together?

                                • Fix font rendering issues in Word for Mac (Baskerville italic).

                                  I've seen multiple issues where people are finding that Word is not displaying fonts correctly. I've seen complaints about this in Word 2016:

                                  https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_word-mso_mac/serious-trouble-with-word-2016-and-unavailability/b6af41b2-56ef-41cb-85e3-bb8248dc1a03

                                  and I've experienced it myself in Word 2011. The problem started after I upgraded a user to macOS Sierra. Anything set in Baskerville italic would appear as semibold italic in Word 2011. Other apps such as TextEdit would display Baskerville italic as expected, so I figured it might be a problem with Word. I took a look at the font itself. The version installed with Sierra is 12.0d2e3. The version we had with El Capitan is…

                                  • New WORD Mac 365 update (15.38) - cannot select non-contiguous text !

                                    With the new update (15.38) - using the command key to select non-contiguous text is now disabled .! This is VERY frustrating .. after speaking to the support line - I have been told that "the developers are working on it" and I can only re-install the OLD update ... A very BIG hassle as all preferences and defaults get wiped .. anyone who is doing lots of Word processing will get very upset with this disabled feature

                                      • Problem with Word version 15.38 and links

                                        With the new Word Update 15.38 that protects against malicious links, I get a message "an unexpected error has occurred" when I click on a link within a word document that links to another file on my computer. Quitting and restarting did not seem to solve it.
