  1. Numbered lists with Eastern Arabic (Arabic-Indic) numerals

    When creating a document in Arabic, there should be an option to make a numbered list with Eastern Arabic numerals (١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩٠). Currently the only option is Western Arabic numerals (1234567890) or Arabic letters. This option is available for Windows, but not for Mac.

  2. Mac version is missing Apply Styles dialog box from Windows version

    Word for Windows has an "Apply Styles" dialog box with "Autocomplete style names" checkbox. This would be VERY helpful on the Mac version, so that we can apply styles by typing with autocomplete.

    Please add this feature to the Mac version!

    For details on how it works in Windows, see: https://www.linkedin.com/learning/word-2013-styles-in-depth/applying-styles-using-the-apply-styles-dialog-box

  4. Save as PDF - PDF version standard

    Export/Save as PDF should use the same PDF version standard across all Microsoft products for example version 1.7 regardless if using Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, or Microsoft Online and regardless of using the option use Microsoft online service to generate the PDF or using the local service.
    This consistency is critical to having a consistent and supported cross platform user experience with PDFs being used or printed which were created by Microsoft products.

  7. Add Frequency Count/Index of Vocabulary Usage

    For all the creative writers who use Word, it would be helpful to be able to run a report/index that shows how often one has used each specific vocabulary word in a document. For example, if you're a novelist, you want to know in reviewing your work which vocab words you are using too often so you can go back and edit/change it up some (so as to sound less repetitive).

  11. Add options to receive @mentions in comments via Microsoft Teams (not just via email)

    Allowing @mentions in comments when reviewing a Word doc is great, but I'd like to have the option to choose how to receive these notifications. Currently just email but would be nice to have a notification in Teams or other? Probably applies not just to Word.

  13. get rid of Welcome back

    It proves that Big Daddy is watching, which is not at all welcome. And it's just stupid. Maybe teenagers think it's cute, but adults don't. Get rid of it!

  14. Get rid of ordinals as a default setting

    This is for ALL your Word version. Get rid of the st, nd, rd and th extensions as a default on numbers. Dates are cardinal numbers, NOT ordinal numbers. Those little extensions need to be gone, so please do not set as default the extensions. I have to teach people individually how to get rid of that dumb, ignorant default setting. It is totally and completely grammatically incorrect.

  16. The selection of Irish as a language in Word on a mac is broken

    See here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_word-mso_mac-mso_365hp/spell-check-irish-switches-to-english-ireland/306f8a8f-b3ff-429e-905c-d3d26dc765a7?messageId=cb664893-2946-425f-b8ff-4837f214f7cc

    Selecting Irish as a language in word automatically goes to English (Ireland) and continues to spellcheck in English. When sending to a PC (where Irish is supported), it is again shown as English instead of Irish. See link for photo and explanation.

  17. MS Word (all platforms) still uses Chicago Manual of Style 16th edition for citation formats. Please update to 17th Edition.

    The title says it all. This is causing problems at a major technical conference that we are running.

  18. Add back the feature of special pattern for background

    Hello, I previously used the Office 2020 for MAC which was possible to do the special pattern for background. However when upgraded to Office 365, this function is disabled. Now I'm using a very stupid way to do this effect.

    Please add this feature back for a better and efficient, thanks!

  20. I'm having a problem opening my Word documents. I receive a notification that says I do not have permission to open the document. Help!

    For the past week or more, when I attempt to open one of my Word documents, I receive a Microsoft Word notification that I do not have permission to open the document. The only option given to me is to click on OK. Only problem is that it is not OK!! I want my documents to open! Please fix this glitch for me! I am an Office 365 customer.
