  1. Where is the touch bar support?!?!?!?!

    Your company advertised that it had already added touch bar support to office for Mac on the Microsoft blogs. However it is not installed there is no plan for it on roadmaps. This is False advertising by the Vice President of the office team!! Where is the touch bar support for the new Mac?!?!?!?!

    • Please put back the passive-voice checking function in Spelling and Grammar. You've been promising it for nearly a year!

      Being able to check for passive voice is a critical function. We need it. You removed it and haven't put it back despite months of people asking you for it. WHY??? This is unacceptable.

      • Please add full RTL support for Word on the Mac (Arabic, Hebrew, etc.)

        We are subscribers of the Office 365 and some members of the family are on Windows and others are on the Mac. We can't believe that in 2016 Microsoft does not support RTL languages (Arabic, Hebrew and such) on the Mac!!!!! This is such a basic requirement of the top productivity tool in the world. Please don't send us to look for alternatives. This applies to Excel and PowerPoint too and I will post the same request for these tools as well.

          We are pleased to announce that Office 2016 for Mac now supports right-to-left language rendering, input, and editing for Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, and Urdu and offers Arabic and Hebrew right-to-left UI in Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. Outlook support will follow within a month. If you see gaps or have suggestions for improved functionality for the languages and cultures served by such writing systems, please feel free to post a new idea.

        • Embedded active links from .docx to .pdf

          Hello

          Now all links in Word are lost in the .pdf.

          We need active: TOC, Footnotes, Endnotes, Cross-references, Internal links, etc.

          This is a must feature.

          Greetings

          • File naming when creating PDF

            In Excel when you create a PDF it is automatically named the same as spreadsheet name, in word it is blank forcing you to go to the extra step every time of naming it. Like the excel way better

                • Bring back focus view

                  On Word for Mac 2016 can we please have the focus view back? Not just the annoying and useless full screen view, but the focus view for concentrated reading and editing. (If possible, add the option to highlight to focus view as well.)
                  What is the point of issuing a supposed upgrade if you are getting rid of some of the best features. What do you think people do with an app called Word if not primarily use it to work with words?

                  • College /University Students missing APA Styles

                    Many College and University students for Reports and dissertations to Write for example in Harvard APA Writing Style. Currently none can be added. If an attempt is made and entered in Current Listing. Cause Word 2016 To Crash upon opening. I notice you have a few listed but not the current Harvard APA. Although I am not a Student. I am a Community Moderator on the Answers Forum for Mac versions. And this keeps coming up. As Student they are limited as to who they can contact and ma not be able to send normal Feedback or report here. So…

                    • Thai language support in Word for Mac

                      Word for Mac has been unable to split Thai language word and sentences in documents since version 2011. This made working with Mac on Thai language document extremely difficult. It is strange that Thai language support is added to iPhones / iPads before the Mac in July. When is this happening?

                      • Allow to customise the ribbon, as in the Windows version

                        and allow to define specific commands as additional items in the ribbon, similarly to what was feasible in the buttons (above the ribbon) in the 2011 version.

                        • Office for Mac Apps Should be 64-bit!

                          When will the new Office for Mac apps go to 64-bit? I was expecting this to happen with Office 2016 for Mac. Almost all other apps on Mac OS X are 64-bit so it would be nice to see Office for Mac transition too.

                              • Add support for Hebrew so that it'll work as it works in other platforms

                                In windows, iOS and other platforms you can:
                                1.) Have a Hebrew interface
                                2.) Create a right to left Hebrew document and use Bold on hebrew
                                3.) see an Hebrew document in the exact same font and look as it was written with.

                                Please add that to the Mac a lot of people needs that!!
