  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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…

  9. 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. ****

  11. MicroSoft word for Mac - 2008 Version 12.3.6 (130206) is to slow to react to selected actions. It takes too long to open and to save.

    The Version 12.3.6 (130206) does not perform very well. It takes too long to open, close and save. My computer is an iMac 21.5 inch Mid 2014 1.4 GHz Intel Core i5 Processor with 8GB 1700 MHz DDR3 memory, so it is not an "old" machine! I think this version of Word is pretty feeble.

  13. When having 2 or more documents open, they should be open in tab form (just like an interest browser), not in separate windows.

    I usually have many word documents open at the same time and I feel like they're all over the place and not organized at all. I think an option should be added where when having 2 or more documents open, they should be open in tab form (just like an interest browser), not in separate windows.

  14. Normally I love microsoft office products, but I have some serious problems this time. The last two time I bought office, I bought it at th

    Since I haven't been given enough words to give my opinion, it seems evident that listening is not your strong point. For the first time in history, I would anxiously entertain the possibility of an office competitor to replace microsoft. Please stay out of my personal documents and please don't ask me to allow you to connect to my work in progress. I already had to pay twice for one office program, but your system refuses to admit microsoft error.

  16. Please prevent "summary" mode from slowing Word when using track changes. (bug)

    I am editing a lengthy document filled with comments. Several times now, while modifying a comment, I have somehow called up the "summary" panel. It appears that the panel is collecting data on my document, but this can take up to 10 minutes, during which I am locked out of the program.

  17. Saving or printing a large file now prints as separate files broken into 1-3 pages due to this last update. Can we fix this glitch please!

    Fix the glitch that is causing Word to print large files as broken separate files. Also, when I save and send via email a file, it is now showing up all distorted. This did not happen until I installed the most recent update. It is causing all sorts of problems for me.

  18. Allow all keys and modifiers to be used for custom keyboard shortcuts.

    Arrow keys on MacBook Pro cannot be used, unlike in Word 2011. Please restore this functionality.
