  1. Allow full colour icons in the Quick Access Toolbar

    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

    I would like to see in Header or Footer the easy option (as in excel) to insert the page number and the number of pages, as it was in previous versions of Word.

  8. Please add the option to have Microsoft Editor available

    I would love to have a built in editor like Grammarly, but it only works well when you pay for it. If we had the ability to download Microsoft Editor plug in then we could use something without paying monthly. I already pay 100 a year for a family plan for Microsoft services. I don't feel I should have to pay more money for Grammarly. I tested out Microsoft Editor online and it works flawlessly.

  12. View and copy document location = file path

    Word for Mac does not easily allow a user to view and copy a document location = file path.

    In Word for Windows, it is possible to add "Document Location" to the Quick Acces Toolbar: https://www.howtogeek.com/161002/how-to-display-the-location-of-a-file-on-the-quick-access-toolbar-in-office-2013/

    Sadly, that is not possible in Word for Mac.

  13. Issue with sinhala typing

    Sinhala Unicode typing syntax issue
    There are some bugs which I identified in Sinhala language Unicode for word for Mac OS! It seems that I cannot type the following phrase in the correct order. This is in relation to the default font "Iskoola Pota". This is the automatic font which is selected when selecting the keyboard! The context of letters are lost in this font. For example typing in unicode the following letters ස ං ව ර ් , this should be displayed as සංවර්ධනය. But instead, the default font displays this as - සංවධර්නය. This is very very annoying!…

  15. Export PDF without Internet connection

    Hello

    To create PDFs with an OCR layer the need for an internet connection is given. I would love if this is not necessary anymore.

  16. PDF import fails if the PDF is big

    Hello

    I have several PDF files that aren't able to import, because Word denies it due of the amount of pages. I would love if here Word is more robust. Or better it doesn't need the Internet.

  17. An Active Table of Content (TOC), Footnotes, Endnotes etc.

    Hello
    I have seen this as Completed, but this is not true. If I export a docx file with a TOC etc. then the TOC etc. is not active. The links to the headings get lost.
    And please check also the other links.
    I'm on Word 16.44 now.

    Thanks for solve this problems.
