  1. Drop-down suggestion lists for Find and Replace that survive from one session to the next

    I would like the option to save the Find and Replace drop-down suggestion lists from previous find and replace operations in a more permanent way, so they are available from one session to the next.

  2. Make the smooth typing animation available as an option like it was in Word 2013 for Windows... it feels nice when you're typing

    There should be an option in the preferences to enable the smooth typing animation that was in Word 2013 for Windows if you want to... some people including myself like it

  3. Refund everyone money because this is a dud.

    Direct deposit or bank cheque will do.

  4. Grammar checker is not working properly. It needs to be more like Grammarly. Also the APA citation is NOT APA. Need to correct the citation

    Grammar issues. Loads of mistakes filter through. Grammar and spell check too limited. Also citation machine on this is way off. Not following correct citations.

  7. Re-paginating problem?

    Hi,

    After installing the latest patches Word is really slow; when scrolling down a document the “screen refresh rate” is really slow - like my computer was running under a heavy load.

    Please provide a fix to this soon..I’d hope I could revert back to the old version & Insider Slow program where the build contained the “old-style” Outlook item list & the programs did not crash.

  9. I would like the option of exporting a document into a ePub file like iPages. Why not go one better and add MOBI as well.

    Allow documents to be exported to ePub like iPages, In fact go one better and add MOBI. Surely, anyone using a Mac for creative writing these days would find this essential.

    Alternatively, allow documents to be saved in iPages format.

  10. Transpose two selections

    I would like to see a way to make two separate selections of text and then transpose them in one action. The selections could be of any length and could be contiguous or non-contiguous. Thanks.

  12. L'application ne répond pas

    Suite à un problème de "l'application ne répond pas". J'ai du fermer sans sauvegarder (sinon cela ne serait pas marrant). Heureusement, il existe la fonction de récupération automatique! Je suis sauvée. Ah. Non. Deuxième bug "l'application ne répond pas" qui m'oblige alors ENCORE à fermer SANS SAUVEGARDER. Et la super fonction récupération automatique n'est pas faite pour remédier à ce petit souci. Faites quelqe chose pour ça, vous venez de me faire perdre 2 heures de ma vie, et ce n'est pas la première fois que cela m'arrive.

  14. Make the Track Changes feature STAY ON until turned off manually.

    I teach writing, and when I am grading and tracking changes in Word, I temporarily switch to another document to copy comments to paste into the document I'm grading. When I return to the original document, Track Changes has turned off. It's frustrating. Can this be fixed?

  15. DropBox missing from "Add a Place" in Office 2016 for Windows and Mac

    In Office 2013 users had the ability to add non-Microsoft cloud storage providers (DropBox Google) to "Add a Place". This interoperability was a valuable asset to the user trying to use Office applications. In Office 2016 the ability to add DropBox is no longer available in the UI. The only options are Microsoft cloud stores.

  17. New numbered list, please default to restart numbering instead of continuing with last numbered list - or make this a preference

    It would be good if this was an option. Mine seems to use previous numbers and sometimes it will "update" all separate numbered lists through the document to be one continuous sequence. Annoying for long docs.

  18. Send direct form Office for Mac 2016 in combination with OS Sierra does not work properly

    When I send a doc directly from Word, Excel or PP I end up in Chrome. When I check mij Mail preference, I see Chrome as my email program instead of Mail. Ik have to change to Mail, the restart en then I can send. That is obviously not what I want. There is a conflict between OS Sierra en Office for Mac 2016.

  20. document file recovery after crash

    Working with large, but not too large documents (around a 100 pages) it happens that Word 365 crashes (version 15.27) but the file is not recovered. This feature used to work quite well in the Word 2011 version but now the work is simply lost.
