    2 YEARS to CONSIDER IT ... Another 2+ YEARS to REVIEW IT... WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO IMPLEMENT THIS..?

    What is the current status on this? Some updates we can find anywhere?

    This request dates back to Sep 2015. The admin replied only in Jun 2017. It is Jan 2019. How long does it take to implement such a quality life tool that already exists in the Windows version? C'mon, Microsoft!

    I subscribe to this. I had this feature (i.e. the mini toolbar) on my work laptop (which had Windows 10), but on my personal laptop (Macbook Pro Retina 15"), Word doesn't even have this option. I badly miss this tool, it helped me save tremendous amounts of time when editing selected words. Please, I beg you, add this option in Word for Mac. Thank you!

    Desperately NEED the mini toolbar for Mac!! I have just switched from MS to Apple and purchased Office 365 only to discover that this feature is not available... It is seriously the most useful tool as a uni student who needs quick fixes when I'm editing my documents. I am very tempted to not use Office.

    This is quite nuts, to force users to right click, wait 4 seconds, every.single. time. i want to adjust font or paragraph spacing. Nuts. Completely nuts.

    How is the pop-up mini toolbar not a feature on Word for Mac? I just bought a MacBook and am considering using my PC when working with Word because this is such an immense shortcoming.

    I just switched to a Mac and purcahsed office 365 and need the mini toolbar back. I am thinking about not using office 365 due to this feature not being present. I use that feature everyday when I was using office on a PC.

    As an editor, I used the mini toolbars constantly on my PC every day. Now my company has switched me to a Mac and, after searching everywhere, I've discovered that mini toolbars no longer exist in MS Word for Mac. PLEASE bring back the mini toolbar for Mac users---it is one of the handiest, most helpful features in Word. We need it! Thanks!

    I also strongly support the request to Microsoft to allow Office 2016 users to benefit from the extremely useful 'Mini Toolbar' feature for Mac OS.
    Frankly this is one of the most useful feature I found in Microsoft Office running on Windows machines.
    Please Microsoft, listen to your customers,Thank for your attention

    At work we use Word for Windows, 2010. Right-clicking to use the mini-toolbar is probably the feature I use most every day (I'd guess maybe 30 times per day). How is it even possible that the Mac version lacks the basic functionality that the MS version had EIGHT YEARS AGO?????????

    This is an enormous shortcoming. I can't emphasize that enough.

    This Mini Toolbar is a really useful feature. Sadly it's not available on the mac version.

    I just made the move to Mac for the 1st time and actually considering returning it because I use this so much. It is desperately needed!

    I just switched from Windows 10 to a Mac and am disappointed that the mini toolbar that comes up when one highlights a text is not in Word 2016 for Mac. I used this feature religiously for school work and editing documents!

    PLEASE let us have this important feature! Sadly missed after moving from Windows 10.
