  1. Faster horisontal scroll

    Let the horisontal scroll be as fast and fluid as the rest of the environment in os x. Take note from e.g. the native Preview application. Now it is just slow. And while you're at it, "lock" the horisontal scroll when doing a vertical scroll - just like preview!

  3. Please add an option to automatically and simultaneously save to computer and to OneDrive

    Please add an option somewhere in word so that whenever we press Command + S or Ctrl + S MS Word will automatically save to BOTH OneDrive AND our computer in a selected area.

  4. Ability to insert images in mail merge

    I'd like the ability to insert images in mail merge by means of a path field and an image name field. There simply is no way to do this now, and imagery is a large part of any merged document or email.

  7. Saved Window Position

    Open Word 2011 in the same place I left the windows! I want the windows to fit the edges of my screen (and the top of my toolbar on the bottom) without me trying to readjust every time I re-open the application, or without me entering into full screen!

  9. I would like to see a true English dictionary or at least be given the opportunity to add words to the dictionary. Color is not UK English

    I would like to see a true English dictionary or at least be given the opportunity to add words to the dictionary. Color is not UK English nor are endeavor; specialize; recognize. A few years ago, when I was using Microsoft Word on a PC, it came with the ability to add words to the dictionary. Why is that now not possible?

  10. Please prevent "summary" mode from slowing Word when using track changes. (bug)

    I am editing a lengthy document filled with comments. Several times now, while modifying a comment, I have somehow called up the "summary" panel. It appears that the panel is collecting data on my document, but this can take up to 10 minutes, during which I am locked out of the program.

  11. Saving or printing a large file now prints as separate files broken into 1-3 pages due to this last update. Can we fix this glitch please!

    Fix the glitch that is causing Word to print large files as broken separate files. Also, when I save and send via email a file, it is now showing up all distorted. This did not happen until I installed the most recent update. It is causing all sorts of problems for me.

    Hi all. There is a strange bug in Word for Mac 2011 with El Capitan (10.11.02): in the "Save As" function, the "New Folder" and the "Save" buttons have disappeared. It is possible to save with the Return key, but I haven't seen a way to create a new folder.

  15. Please make it possible to use "them", "their", and "themselves" as a singular non-gendered pronoun.

    Right now it is only possible to use the singular pronouns "him" and "her". While this is not intentionally excluding a large number of people, it is not inclusive. Also, it is frustrating to write "himself and herself" instead of "themselves" when we use the latter in conversation and writing all the time.

  17. fix the bugs with el capitan

    I am not willing to use word anymore since it deleted now several of my files because it crashed, and crashed again while using it with mac/el captain. I'm not here to give u any ideas anymore (after I talked to your people via chat several times and no-one had a clue as of how to fix this mess). for any mac user out there: buy pages. it's cheap and it works and don't trust microsoft word. amen.

  20. Permanently FIX this problem that got worse under El Capitan: "Word could not create the work file. Check the amount of disk space..."

    Some call it "Fix saving bug in El Capitan"

    I "sort of" fixed it by assigning a place for autosave files under Preferences but IT STILL HAPPENS, seemingly randomly, and it still CRASHES Word, just not as much. Doesn't happen to Excel or PPT.

    This did not happen with Office/Word back to 10.6.8, only until upgrade to 10.11.2 (and not 10.11.1). However it has been around for seemingly forever for some users.

    MSFT, please FIX this issue permanently.
