  1. Line #'s can not be seen if a photo or an image is inserted to cover the full page including the hearer and footer.

    My product is Word 2016 for Mac...

    I have a 542 page book in 11 x 17 page format with many images/photos and sometimes covering the full page. There doesn't seem to be a means to have the page number on top of the inserted full page image. I would like to high light the page #s with a white background so that the page #s look normal on regular paged, and with full page images/photos the white background of the page #s would stand out...

    Regards,
    Don_

  2. "Save As" should show file options alphabetically.

    When I went to save a new file, it showed me recent file locations. But I could not find the folder I was looking for, since I hadn't saved anything to it for months. "Save as" options should include being able to find a folder or location alphabetically. Who remembers when you last opened everything?

  5. Allow users to choose however many "Open Recent" files they want to appear under the File menu

    It is very important to restore the ability for users of all Microsoft Office 2019 for MAC applications to choose the number of Recently Opened files that appear in the "Open Recent" command under the file menu as the default number of 10 is very insufficient. For users that regularly use a large number of files, only enabling 10 to appear in that menu at most makes it very cumbersome to have to navigate through the various folders to find files that do not appear in the "Open Recent" menus.

  8. faded highlight

    When running cursor over material needing to be highlighted to change font size or cut and paste, the highlighted area was not visible any more. One was not sure when it was or was not high lighted.

  9. Keep selection settings after an update

    I prefer to work without the setting "Select entire word when selecting text". However, this setting gets reactivated whenever I update Word. Please do not reset settings after updates.

  15. Azure Citation Database/Source Manager Collaboration

    More people are using tablets and word online; why is there not a citation capability in this format?

    In a world where automation is more effective for productivity, formatting citation should be almost automatic, seamless. Researchers, education professionals, and students can create a database and up-vote on the format or down-vote. Additionally, you can attempt to establish a partnership with associations with this proficiency.

    You can start by creating an individual cloud citation source manager database on Azure. Enable the user to filter through and categorize their resources, by the style of writing, subject, and date.

    Furthermore, the citation manager…

  16. Please create a simple way to disable the "Welcome back" message that appears when I re-open a Word document.

    I understand that the Welcome Back message is supposed to be convenient, but I find it irritating. Please create a simple way to disable this feature.

  17. deplacer une photo sur un document word

    revenir a ce qui ce faisait avant pour déplacer une photo sur un document word, c'est juste impossible maintenant, je ne comprends pas pourquoi vous avez compliqué la façon de faire. Avant il suffisait d'utiliser la souris ou les flèches, maintenant on n'a plus le choix du positionnement d'une photo. très déçu

  20. Documents on SMB server become hidden files on save

    This applies to: Word for mac documents when opened across a network from an SMB share.

    If the word document is large, say a few MB in size, saving the document will result in the document becoming a hidden file.

    This does not happen if the document is only a few kb in size.

    Because the mac system does not show hidden files, users think their word documents have been deleted. It is possible to show the document again by un-hiding it using a windows computer, however the document will become hidden again anytime a mac user opens and…
