  1. [Alt] click on the Navigator-triangle opens or close all on this entries of this level

    Hello I would love to see a easier navigation in the Navigator. So if I press [Alt] and then click on the Navigator-triangle opens or close all on this entries of this level. So its a lot faster to find the right entry. If you have a lot of headings.

  3. Latvian spelling bugs

    Some words in the Latvian spell-checker are wrong and need to be replaced with correct forms. For the start, here is a short list (sources: Latviešu valodas pareizrakstības un pareizrunas vārdnīca, LLVV, LPE, Svešvārdu vārdnīca):
    tādejādi -> tādējādi
    priviliģēts -> privileģēts
    intraverts -> introverts
    ekumēnisks -> ekumenisks
    Sokrāts -> Sokrats
    Hipokrāts -> Hipokrats
    nomaldas -> nomaldās

  4. How about fixing the bug in Track Changes that won't allow you to get rid of changes markup?

    Problem: Unselecting Track Changes markups in Word, saving, and then storing (or even worse - sending) a document. When opening the document again, Track Changes magically are back. Nothing in the meny system allows you to get rid of the markups.

  6. 'Word cannot save or create this file. The disk may be full' - this is rubbish, plenty of space on both of my Macs. Please fix.

    Please fix incompatibility of Word with Mac El Capitan. Tired of losing files of my macbook and iMac. Looking for alternative to Microsoft programs to switch.

  7. Crashes too often, keyboard shortcuts don't work AT ALL, and foreign key is unstable

    Currently I'm using Word 2011, after the last two updates, the program progressively got worse.

    First, when I use the keyboard shortcuts, they fail to change what I typed into what I want. For example, I type --> or <-- and it doesn't change into an arrow, as it used to with the previous updates. It is annoying because it used to be a basic format change, but now I have to manually find that arrow in symbols.

    Second, I could be working on something and suddenly it crashes or when I close one of the Word windows, the entire…

  9. Save button for Word for Mac

    I can't click "save" when using the "save as" feature as the mac dock at the bottom covers the "save" button

  10. We need to be able to Copy-Paste into the Find function!

    It is quite frankly idiotic that I have to type every single letter of every word or phrase into WORD's Find function instead of being able to copy & paste them as before. What's up with that?!

    After using this update for several months, I can safely say it is NOT an upgrade in any way.

  12. Hebrew Font vowels/diacritics and use with SBL Hebrew

    Copied from http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/mac/forum/macoffice2016-macword/word-for-mac-1520-and-hebrew/235fe7e1-3d24-4772-b9fe-4d0abefd3cf1

    Many thanks to the team for releasing Word for Mac 15.20 with right-to-left capability. As some have noted, you need to select Hebrew (or Arabic) as a system language in Mac system preferences for this to work. However, I have found two problems:
    Word for Mac R2L only works with a Hebrew keyboard that is part of the pre-installed system from Apple, such as "Hebrew–QWERTY". There are other Hebrew keyboards out there. For example, one that is popular in biblical studies is called "Hebrew Keyboard-SIL," and it does not work properly with Word for Mac (it works…

  13. Make word 2011 work with 10.6.8 again, I think it crashes my Mac

    I think your update for word from 12th of January for Mac is a killer app... please test it.

  14. The spell checker should not confuse the lower case i with the lower case l in tables. Changes back a lot.

    Allow for changes between lower case I and L that do not switch back spontaneously in tables. It is frustration and embarrassing when I write tests.

  15. Post a list of the improvements and fixes currently under development

    It would be helpful to your customers to be able to see what issues are being worked on and what issues are slated for future fix/implementation. That should include a current estimate of delivery time.

    I sense a lot of frustration on these pages. Having this method of providing you with our feedback helps, but only if you provide meaningful responses about what you plan to address. Black holes do not engender customer loyalty or appreciation.

  17. Bring back Polish Dictionary. This is step backward

    I am a Polish journalist living in Canada. In 1991 I persuaded Adobe and Microsoft to start using Polish fonts and spellchecks. It took you years to catch up with APPLE, who virtually monopolized publishing business in Poland for newspapers books and magazines. I use Word since 1995. After newest update 14.6.2 (16029) of Word for Mac 2011 I do not see possibility of using Polish for Normal. There are 100 million people in the world using Polish, are you starting to discriminate us like Hitler and his friend Stalin?
    If I do not get response within 10 days I…

  19. Permanently FIX this problem that got worse under El Capitan: "Word could not create the work file. Check the amount of disk space..."

    Some call it "Fix saving bug in El Capitan"

    I "sort of" fixed it by assigning a place for autosave files under Preferences but IT STILL HAPPENS, seemingly randomly, and it still CRASHES Word, just not as much. Doesn't happen to Excel or PPT.

    This did not happen with Office/Word back to 10.6.8, only until upgrade to 10.11.2 (and not 10.11.1). However it has been around for seemingly forever for some users.

    ****MSFT, please FIX this issue permanently. ****
