  2. enable paste option for search bar

    when i try to search something on the search bar, it would be great if the paste option is enabled. Otherwise I have to type everything, which is irritating and time-consuming

  4. I am not able to selectively disable non-printing characters on my Word 2016 for Mac

    I am not able to selectively disable non-printing characters on my Word 2016 for Mac. For example, I am wanting to disable "dot" characters for space while keeping "Tab characters" and "Paragraph marks." I go to Preferences and then View, but selectively checking/unchecking those options do not get reflected on my document. It basically is all or nothing right now.

    The annoyance is partly due to the "strong presence" of those dot characters. I think it used to be much more subtle presence. Now that it is visible as strongly as any of what I am actually typing that it…

  5. I use Word and Excel and when I access either of them after a few times I have to shut down the Mac and clear out whatever keeps hanging up.

    After using either Word or Excel a few times, it will hang up and I have to shut down my MAC and it clears out whatever is causing the problem. What can be causing this problem?

  6. Can't even close a file ... what a mess this is, Microsoft.

    You sold me a defective product under the guise of it being Word. BS! You'll never get another cent from me.

  11. Drawing Canvas

    Word for Windows has supported a Drawing Canvas forever, and I had hoped that it would be brought to Word for Mac 2016.

    While one can draw and group individual elements, it is nowhere as convenient as designating an area for a picture and then drawing in that area. Plus it would allow compatibility with Word for PC!

  12. Add all fractions in condensed form for cooking & baking recipes

    instead of large font i.e.: 1 1/8 it should appear 1/8 in smaller/condensed format. This would be for all formulas. I write a lot of recipes and some of the fractions are not available in smaller condensed form. The recipe looks weird with two different styles of fractions.

  13. Allow font management

    Word 2016 has fonts stored in the application package, making font management very difficult. The overwhelming majority of users probably don't need foreign-language fonts and those who do certainly don't need every single one. So we shouldn't have to page through an endless list of fonts we'll never use.

  15. Complete Deletion of Document

    I was working on a ten-paged research paper for a class, and word completely closed out my document without saving it. It is absolutely ridiculous that the program could not recover my document, and completely crashed out of the blue. I am disgustingly disappointed, and will be using Google Docs from now on.

  16. Automatic resizing when Word window is moved to a smaller (second) monitor

    I use 2 screens, my Mac screen and an external screen. Every app window gets resized automatically when moved from the bigger monitor to the smaller laptop screen, that is, except Word 2011 (and Excel and Powerpoint) windows. This is a bug that should be fixed.

  18. Organizational editing in Sidebar pane.

    Return to the functionality of an earlier version of Word. Permit the movement of a header (and subsequent text below the header) to a new location in the body of the document. This will allow the user to move whole chapters of a large document (thesis, dissertation, novel, etc.) around easily. I am going back to using Scrivener for composition simply because this ability is not present.
