  1. Have a mode where you can make the page itself a darker color

    The dark mode is nice for the header, but It would be great if you could make it so that you can make the page itself darker. Would be easier to look at the screen in dark rooms

  2. Cover Template

    For the cover template on Microsoft Word 2019, instead of using 'Dear' as a greeting use: 'To whom it may concern'.

  3. Spell check/grammar check color change

    Allow the user to change the color of misspellings and grammar errors. Could be tied into the "highlight" colors. Either that or make it brighter, easier to see.

  7. Delete a bibliography

    There is no quick and easy way to delete the automatically added bibliography or citation boxes either in text or the end listing. This would be very helpful to be able to remove and reinsert to correct problems.

  9. Is it possible to restore the Word/Office docs from last session!

    When quitting Excel, Word, or PowerPoint, and then reopening them (or restarting my Mac), none of them will reopen the previously open documents. Unchecking the option Close windows when quitting app in the General tab of Mac System Preferences, the Office 2019 for Mac doesn’t reopen the files that are previously opened either. Seemingly this was not a problem with Office 2011, but this new feature seriously interrupts my work flow.
    Can this functionality be re-enabled again pls!!!???
    I usually work on dozens of word & powerpoint files at a time, all from different folders and I can't remember what…

  11. Can you update the Harvard Referencing/citation guide

    I would like to rely more on Word than add-ons like Mendeley and Zotero for citing sources. The Harvard citation system (Harvard Anglia) is hopelessly backdated. I have the latest word for Mac, and it is disappointing to see that this has not been brought up to the mark. A fan and user forever, Debjyoti

  12. dictation

    What happened to the dictation feature? It was the best accessibility tool ever! It comes then goes, so unreliable... SO disappointing

  15. PAPER COLOUR

    When MacOS users (I'm not too sure of regular PCs) apply dark mode within their system, have the paper itself become dark as well. We do this to protect our eyes from the bright light. You can have a dark mode on paper with white font colour but of course when you print it, it will be the original white paper+black font colour (unless printed with colour)

  16. A greater range of highlighter colours or colour picker on highlight section

    I would like to suggest if newer, additional highlighter colours could please be added or the ability to select custom colours from the colour picker like we can for text. Ideal colours would be pastel or muted colours - something similar to the shade range offered in Excel (types of colours that are less harsher on the eyes but multiple colours and shades so there is more variety for everyone as not everyone likes pastels, more people might like muted and vice versa). The current options provided are quite dark colours or extremely bright ones which can make the text…

    you should have an icon where you can build a timelines without having to use the insert icon and using lines.
