  1. Crashes too often, keyboard shortcuts don't work AT ALL, and foreign key is unstable

    Currently I'm using Word 2011, after the last two updates, the program progressively got worse.

    First, when I use the keyboard shortcuts, they fail to change what I typed into what I want. For example, I type --> or <-- and it doesn't change into an arrow, as it used to with the previous updates. It is annoying because it used to be a basic format change, but now I have to manually find that arrow in symbols.

    Second, I could be working on something and suddenly it crashes or when I close one of the Word windows, the entire…

  2. Enable designing & printing of Labels & Covers on CD/DVDs

    I’d like to print CD/DVD LABELS and COVERS.

    After selecting from MS®Word:Mac2011’s Document Gallery (Publishing Layout View) I opened “Stripes CD Label” … but, without warning nor explanation, it morphed into “Stripes CD Covers”.

    I’ve wasted much time without mitigating my angst at being unable to find any intelligible ‘help’ in achieving my goal. I have even bet $20K with my wife that I will not receive any sort of response to this missive … except to buy a new computer [iMac 10.10.5], printer [Epson 837 11.0.4], and/or software [MS® Word:Mac2011 14.l5.0 (150423)] … Please don’t make her a winner!

  3. We need to be able to Copy-Paste into the Find function!

    It is quite frankly idiotic that I have to type every single letter of every word or phrase into WORD's Find function instead of being able to copy & paste them as before. What's up with that?!

    After using this update for several months, I can safely say it is NOT an upgrade in any way.

  4. What happened to double-clicking to highlight a word?!

    As a writer, I am frustrated that we can no longer simply double- / triple-click on a word or paragraph to highlight & edit it.

    No, now I have to carefully place the cursor and drag to highlight the word or passage, or use "fancy" key combinations. This needless change wastes my time. Grrrrr!

  6. Why no synonyms for tracked changes?

    When editing texts for other people, I frequently use the right-click synonyms or lookup functions. However, with track changes "ON", any word added or changed (now appearing in a different colour) cannot be right-clicked to find a synonym or to access smart lookup. This is annoying, because this is exactly the point where I like to look for alternative or need to check up on a (new) word. Because I want the changes to remain visible, it is too cumbersome to accept or hide the changes, check what I need to check, an then make the changes visible again. I…

  8. Equation Editor not working properly in Word for MacBook

    The features are not all working, for instance, you cannot put in exponents using the MacBook. So disappointing...

  10. Bringing up created Word documents

    After the installation of El Capitan, I cannot bring up an individual Word document. It brings up all Word documents at once that I saved after the installation. How can I bring up one at a time without it bringing up all? They appear to be attached to one another.

  13. Complex script font support as of Windows version

    Word for mac doesn't come with complex script font selection dialog as of Windows version. When will Microsoft update the font selection dialog to be consistent with Windows version?

  14. Please: non longer saving Normal.dotm!

    When I use Word (Mac 2011) it demands me to save a 'Normal.dotm'-file. I don't know what's the sence of this file, but it is gets on my nerves. When I click 'save' the same returns again and again. When I click 'break off', then returns the message: "Die durchgeführten Änderungen haben Auswirkuingen auf die Dokumentvorlage Normal. Möchte Sie diese Änderungen speichern?" and the only way to stop this terrible game is to click on "Nicht speichern". This happens allthought when I close an empty document, where I didn't typed any letter.
    This is so boring that I shoot down…

  15. 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!

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
