  2. Allow us to copy and paste photos into a document on line, not just uploading a filename.

    I have photos I need to copy and paste from another document. They don't have filenames in my computer. But I need to insert them into a final document I am co-athoring with a Word Processing volunteer in Dropbox.

  3. Don't Use Word Online

    Don't use word online and go back to using word (the app on your desktop) because sometimes word online won't work due to internet complications.

  4. Increase filename field in "Save As..." bar

    Filename field in "Save As ..." dialog box is very short. The insertion of long filenames (more then 30 symbols) is inconvenient.
    Need to appropriate a long name to the file arises quite often.
    The filename field in Word for Mac doesn't increase by changing the size of "Save As ..." dialog window (as opposed to Word for Windows).

  7. Let us create 1 "Backup folder"

    Activating the "Always create backup copy" in Word means you'll create a backup folder with the files name in the same folder, which starts to pollute your folders after a while.

    Let us create 1 back folder with all backup files...

  9. Vocabulary words...please update them...integrate with dictionary.com or something. (2011 office mac)

    It would be great to update vocabulary words...and grammar as well. It would help with writing essays.

  10. Your document window starts on left corner...please fix this. (office 2011 word)

    When you start a new document, the positioning of the window starts off at the top left (from previous version, it starts in the middle of the screen). When you position the first document in the middle and open up a 2nd new document, it opens up at top left screen. The problems are: 1) Documents don't open up on top left corner. 2) The second or more new documents should NOT be opening up top left corner position when it should be opening up on your current position. It should be overlapping.

  11. Make the default font selection for equations actually work with 3rd part fonts

    Changing the default font for equations does not work properly. Saving the document changes the fonts of the equations to a strange combination of Cambria Math and the indented font (ie XITS Math or Minion Math - both work fine with Word for Windows).

  12. I need selectdrawingobjects button. Very important feature for designing.

    You removed the option for selecting drawing objects. You can still do it but have to run the built in macro every time. We can't add the selectdrawingobjects button anymore.

  14. Make the delete button easier to find

    So I'm not even sure if you can delete files because it is ridiculously impossible to find. If there is, however, it would be nice for the delete button to be more obvious. Especially from recent. I'm not too keen on my poetry analysis from 9th grade being on my recent. Maybe you could allow us to delete it from recent under the secondary mouse button because I tried looking for one of my recent essays and I spent a good 5 minutes trying to find it

  15. Make it easy to create our personal defaults for word (example, MLA formatting).

    Every time students start to use word, I have to teach them to change font, get rid of the space after paragraphs, etc. It would be better if it were easier to create personal templates or pick MLA for example.

  16. Word 2016 for Mac - Save as PDF - Hide Extension Bug

    Hi everyone

    My setup:

    OSX Yosemite 10.10.5

    Office 2016 - specifically for this issue - Word 2016 Version 15.14 (150911)

    When going to the Print dialog window and choosing to 'Save as PDF', whether I have the the 'Hide Extension" option checked or not, the PDF file is created and the extension is always showing. I have to then manually hide it using Finder.

    I have always preferred to have the extension hidden and have never had an issue with it until Word 2016.

    I notice others posting an issue with Word not showing the extension when saving their Word…

  17. Conversation view should show all messages from any folder related to a conversation

    In conversation view in a folder all messages related to the conversation do not show. For example, sent messages or deleted messages.

  19. Please fix default setting of the viewing document. (mac os x el Capitan with office 2011)

    Whenever I start a new document on word, it starts off with weird document page on the LEFT SIDE of the screen. I thought it would be in the middle of the screen...i guess not. I think it's a bug. Please put an option in the word application where i can click default and will lead to default screen with all the default tools..or whatever.
