restore the right-click Autocorrect menu to Word 2016
In ALL PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF WORD, if you misspelled a word, you could right click, and there, in the right-click menu, was an option for "Auto-Correct" with a fly-out menu to the right, with suggested words, and at the bottom "Autocorrect options." This menu allowed me to speed up my typing by adding corrections to the Autocorrect dictionary on the fly, letting Word learn my typing style and common mistakes.
Now, this is hidden in File, Options, Autocorrect, behind a series of obscure menus that take time, and hinder my workflow. If I'm on a typing roll, and inspiration hits, the red squiggles bother me the entire time, distracting me while typing, because now, I cannot correct them easily and on the fly, without it interrupting my thoughts.
This is a huge loss of functionality and I would like to have the right-click Autocorrect menu restored to Word. This. feature has been restored in Word for PC. Will it be restored for Word for Mac? I jut wasted 4 hrs with customer support, to no avail.

A simple and intelligent suggestion... and Microsoft team doesn't even answer or comment! Congratulations, Microsoft!
Absolutely needs to be restored. One of the MOST useful features in the contextual menu (right click) options. I can't understand why it was removed!!
I have zero idea why anyone would have decided to take this feature out... it has been there for at least 20 years...

Agree, foolish to have removed this feature, even more foolish not to have restored it yet. Please bring this feature back.
Right! Restore the item ASAP!
Customer is right. It was foolish to delete this very useful function without any serious reason.
