  2. latex

    Introduce the support for LaTex in Equation Editor of Word for Mac.

    It is a really important feature for scientific community and it is missing on Word for Mac.

  5. Bring back notebook layout!

    I find this layout useful for collecting information and organizing notes and journaling or informal.

  6. Navigation button not always responding to editing in large word files

    Please check up on the navigation button and its function on the sidebar of the View section. Working on a large document, the navigation button tends to be slow and/or unresponsive.

  10. View Side By Side On Mac

    Side by side viewing of two documents is available for PC users, but not Mac users. This is a useful feature for anyone using your platform for work and you should add this feature to Macs.

  13. Dictation commands access

    In the drop-down for dictations, it provides only languages. It would be nice to have dictation commands in the drop-down. I am having difficulty finding where they are so that I may utilize them while dictating. I have watched several videos on YouTube and none of them seem to open dictation commands.

  18. Provide an Autofit feature

    Provide an Autofit feature, so a few lines of text spilling over to another page can be compressed to eliminate the spilling over.

  19. Microsoft Word spacing bug

    I found a bug in Word (for Mac) that has to do with spacing and formatting. When using a lettered list after you past the letter Z and move on to double A (AA.) Word automatically indents as if you hit the tab button to do a lowercase letter indent. This spacing issue happens for all double letter capitals AA. BB. CC. etc. I uploaded a screen shot through a direct file transfer with a customer support rep for you to see what I am talking about. The name of the file is "Microsoft Word spacing bug".

  20. Change the background colour of the Quick Access Toolbar so that it is different from the background of the Ribbon

    Currently the Ribbon Label bar has a blue background. It can be confused with the Quick Access Toolbar background which has a similar colour background.
    I suggest changing the background colour of the Quick Access Toolbar to a pale colour and allow full colour icons. This will diferentiate the two ribbon backgrounds.
