  1. Microsoft Error Reporting & Microsoft Ship Asserts need to be upgraded to 64 bit ASAP

    Reporting this important issue: As you know, MacOS Catalina 10.15 is coming out in couple of days and I noticed that Microsoft Error Reporting & Microsoft Ship Asserts are 34 bit and they need to be upgraded to 64 bit ASAP or else they won't be working when everyone in the mac community will upgrade to MacOS Catalina 10.15. Can you kindly look into this issue asap and fix it? Thanks for your help 😀

  2. Can't open documents with Greek characters in the title and the path

  4. Make it easier to navigate in word! Bring back the featues of Word 2011

    When I’m in a multi-page document, it is SO much more difficult to move around than in Word 2011. In that version there was a button, or an arrow (can’t remember exactly, I’ve been using this version for a couple of years now)..I think at the bottom of scroll bars. You’d click on it, and go to the next page. At the bottom of the main window was a place you could put in a page number and go to. Now it’s MUCH more convulted. The only way to move through a large document is using the thumbnails in the…

  5. Home button grayed out when opening a Word doc

    Why when I click on an already saved doc., it opens in Page view but the Home menu is expanded but grayed out. It means I have to click "Home" tab (it closes), then click it again to make it operable. This is very annoying.

  6. MacBook Pro doesn't offer File>Info>Manage Document so I can recover an earlier version of a saved doc.

    I want to be able to recover the previous version of a doc I just unintentionally overwrote. The instructions I've found don't seem to apply to Word on my MacBook Pro.

  7. Clean hyperlink without pop-ups

    Maybe this is a Mac security thing, but I want to establish a hyperlink to a word in a document WITHOUT the pop-up asking me if I really want to open the (audio) file from my source. Highlighting the word allows me to cleanly put in the hyperlink, but the pop-up occurs every time I access the link - unacceptable for my use.

    I can do this alternately by In Word>Insert>Media>Media from file> that puts a speaker icon on the page and doesn't produce a pop-up, but this really messes up the page formatting.

  8. Make bullet list from highlighted items

    A very useful and special feature would be the ability to create a bullet point list with the click of a button from highlighted phrases or sentences in a paragraph. If I could highlight a paragraph and click a button to make a list from highlighted sentences or phrases within the selected paragraph, I could easily collate things like comments and suggestions into a simple list format which makes life 10x easier.

  9. Fix Word for Mac

    Like many other's using Office 365 on Mac OSX I am plagued with Office 365 Grant access error in Word in particular 365.

    Spec

    Mac OSX Mojave 10.14.6

    Office 365: Word version 16.26

    Font management system: Extensis Suitcase 9 version 20.0.6

    We are dependent on Suitcase controlling our fonts, so I'm not going to disable it.

    I have used Suitcase to clean out font caches regularly and the terminal command: sudo atsutil databases -remove.

    None of the above had had any effect.The only work round we have is to place a copy of every Word file, and we have a…

  11. Allow F1 to be used as a keyboard shortcut

    F1 is assigned to Undo by default. This is rather useless, given that Command-Z already performs that function. I would like to assign it to a different function, but I just get a beep when I try in the Customize Keyboard dialog. Please allow F1 to be reassigned to a different function.

  12. Change the auto correct to be inclusive of LGBT families

    I have two dads. The autocorrect underlines the word "dads" as incorrect and suggests "dad's" every time I write about my family. Little things like this go a long way. Please change the autocorrect to not think that "my dads" or any variation of the term is incorrect. Like I said, these small things in life really stick out for certain people and it would mean a lot if Microsoft would change this in all future versions.

  14. Don't expand character spaces on a line that ends with SHIFT-RETURN formatted in justified text

    Don't expand character spaces on a line that ends with SHIFT-RETURN formatted in justified text.
    This was optional in settings - now it is no more available. You can force word only do to so with a combination of Tab Stop Shift+Enter.

  16. Setting default window size of Word for all documents

    Word has no option where I could set default window size for all documents to open into. I tried normal.dotm but couldnt customize word size.

  17. Templates - Filter in search field to refine and improve search results

    In Word for Mac 2011, when you search in the Templates search field, as you add words, the number of results are reduced to only those that contain all the words you are searching for.

    In 365 it seems that it just increases the range of the search to include any result that contains any of the words I put in the search field - making it impossible to refine the search to more relevant results.

    Apparently according to MS support, this works in Windows?


    • I upgraded to 365 only to find a worse product :(

  19. Word>format>paragraph>check box - "Don't add space between paragraphs of the same style" - Once chosen keep it! Tired of having to re-check.

    Word>format>paragraph>checkbox - "Don't add space between paragraphs of the same style" - Once I have checked that box, please leave it - apply to every subsequent document until I chose to un-check it. I get very tired to having to repeat the ritual for every new doc. Thank you.

  20. Have you removed the sound reinforcements to orders from the new word? If so, why? My Home Student 2019 version does not have it.

    Have you removed the sound reinforcements to orders from the new word? If so, why? My Home Student 2019 version does not have it. It wouldd be great to restore this function.
