  2. Shortcut to close Reference Tools and return focus to text

    I cannot find a shortcut to close the Reference Tools pane and return the focus to the text, so I have to take my hands off the keyboard and attempt to click on that tiny red ball every time I look up a word or name.

  3. When spellchecking a document, word shuts down!

    Fix this problem. I've had two Macs and added Word for Mac on each. Both times, when I use spell check, it will work for a few pages and then shut down, losing what I've correct. So very frustrating. Please fix this problem!

  4. "/" not admitted in the filenames

    In French we write the dates like this : 30/04/2016. But the “ / “ is refused in “save the file under”, although it was admitted in Word 2004. So please admit the “/” in the filenames.

  6. Word for Mac 2016 missing "Show all bibliography fields" checkbox when entering a citation

    When entering a new citation in Word 2016 for Mac there is no option for "Show all bibliography fields" like the Windows version. This means there is no way to properly cite many documents with DOI numbers are add URL's to electronic journal articles etc. It works perfectly in the Windows version.

  7. Please return space non-printing character to the muted cyan of the other NPCs and Word 2011

    The large black dot is so jarring—I thought I was seeing bullet characters. Please return the space NPC to the muted cyan of the other NPCs (paragraph mark, tab, non-breaking space, Em/En space) and as it is in Word 2011.

  9. Just make it work properly!

    I've just upgraded to Office 2016 for Mac and wish I had not bothered. I've been using Office for over 20 years in my business and now find that simple routines which worked perfectly in previous versions simply don't any more. For example, I use a small embedded Excel spreadsheet in my invoices to calculate hours x fee rates and add VAT. The formatting has now gone all over the place and can't be fixed. I paste Excel tables of time records into the invoice, but the simple process of adjusting column widths and indents has now greyed out and…

  10. chicago style citations

    Chicago style uses footnotes, not parenthetical citations, so take away the parentheses in the Chicago Style insert citation tool. Or link the footnote tool to the citations tool so footnotes in citations are formatted automatically without parentheses

  11. Bring back auto-correct functionality in context-menu please

    Office 2011 for Mac Word and earlier versions of Office for Windows had an 'autocorrect this word always to ...'-function in the context-menu. I find this feature essential for all good text editing software. But in the Office 2016 version it is gone! Why on earth? The contextual autocorrect-functionallity makes working with a text editor so much more comfortable when one can quickly add the automatic correction of a word e.g. with diacritical symbols like (in French): crème brûlée. Before you just had to right-click, go to auto-correct and click on the correct spelling of the word and in the…

  12. No Word support for Mac users 2016

    Here's another about your crappy support for Mac users

    Heres another, how about having someone on the support team that knows anything about Word on a Mac - every time I call in the person on the other end (of my paid support) tells me 'We don't have anyone here who knows anything about using Word on a Mac'

    If that's the case, then stop selling support you do not provide, on a product your support desk employees know NOTHING about

  16. Please return the "Close" button when viewing Footnotes

    Please add a "Close" button when viewing Footnotes/Endnotes as there is in Word 2011. Much easier and quicker than having to fish around in the View Menu again.

  17. I can't save Word documents anymore

    I can't save Word documents anymore with 'Save as', because of a "frozen" popup screen with an 'Options' and a 'Compatibilty Report' button, which seems to de-activate the save possibilities.. The 'Save' and 'Save as' in the 'Bestand' (File or Document?) menu are inactive.
    I checked that my Word for Mac version is up to date.
    What caused this and how can I make my Word for Mac functioning again, because in this way it has becom useless?

  19. "No credentials The system requires that you sign on to a valid account."

    Open Directory Accounts are now faced with "No credentials The system requires that you sign on to a valid account" when opening any Office app. This seems to be a common issue with the latest release of 365. Your engineers have told us (after about a week of going back and forth), that Open Directory users are no longer supported with Office 365, and that this issue is by design! We are an IT consultancy who build server/ client solutions for our customers on the Mac platform, and we will now be forced to suggest Office alternatives.
