  1. restore locked format painter functionality to Word 16

    In previous versions of Word, when format painter was locked (double clicked) and you triple clicked a line to paste the formatting, the entire line would be selected and receive the formatting. Since upgrading to Word 16, the entire line is selected, but only the first word or letter clicked on receives the formatting. Drag to select works as intended, but is tedious and prone to mistaken selections. I've tested on multiple Macs. Worked on previous versions for years. (At least since 2001, maybe earlier.) This is a big part of my work flow and I'm really hoping to get…

  2. Close application (e.g.) Word if last document is closed

    Please close the whole application if the last document is closed. Please don't tell me that's default behaviour on Mac. This WAS the default and always was ****. These days 99% of all applications on Mac quit if there are no more open documents for the specific application.

  3. A field code to display tomorrow's date

    When creating a priority list for tomorrow, I would like to use a field code that's as simple as the DATE field code. I don't understand why (DATE + 1) doesn't work for this. It would be very useful for managers and planners. Thanks.

  4. #cloudfonts are incompatible with publishing workflow, we need option to shut off!

  6. Microsoft Word freezes on Catalina 10.15

    Microsoft Word freezes for 5 secs on MacOs Catalina 10.15 whenever something is highlighted or the cursor is changed from the touchpad. This is happening without a miss and is highly irritating. I expect Microsoft to at least test their products on new OS. Not the kind of quality expected when such high amount is spent on Microsoft Office.

  7. Add Content Controls; Date Picker and Design Mode for Mac users

    These controls are necessary functions for the Developer ribbon. It doesn't make sense why they are not available to Mac users!

  11. Word: Fix freezing issues when selecting text in Catalina

    Since updating to Catalina, Word freezes whenever I select text—even just a few words. I have to manually backspace if I want to delete something and it takes forever if I have a lot of text to delete. If I forget and select text, it freezes for a good few seconds. Sometimes I have to force quit.

  12. Give an option to stop greying out header and footer to distribute to clients in .docx format. When collaborating, want logo to look normal.

    While I understand Word is a tool for printing, we don't do that anymore, well, since 2008. We include a logo in our Headers, but is grayed out. Would be nice to have it in full color and not faded when sending to clients. Can't just send a PDF when we need them to work on the file. Would just be a nice option to have full control of the original file and get the boss from complaining to me how Word sucks so bad. I know it's not In-Design, but creating a Word doc without dimming the layered options…

  14. Command Click title of document window to access the document in Finder

    I would like the standard MacOS behaviour of Command Clicking on the title of the window to display the folder hierarchy, so I can access my document's location in the finder.

  17. Publishing Layout

    Bring back the Publishing Layout for Word. That's it. That's the entire idea. Do the thing that you were already doing but stopped doing. I just bought a whole new Microsoft Office Suite and I feel like I'm being made to drink New Coke.

  18. Auto-Complete When Sharing on Mac

    Sharing Word Docs on a Mac should be the same experience as on a Windows machine. Currently, Mac sharing requires you to put a name or email but does not auto-complete to show a dropdown list of users from your organization. Typing a persons name or email should bring this list up as it does in Windows Word, as well as Outlook.

  19. Word citations Spanish bug.

    In citations in Spanish you cannot write down accents, since there is a bug avoiding to do that. For almost a year I have sent various messages reporting that bug but you do not respond.

    Thanks
