  1. How do I expand the working page of a document; the expanding by draging the lower RH corner does not seem to work?

  3. MS Word spell-check correction

    MS Word incorrectly suggests changing "well ordered" to "well-ordered." The hyphen is not necessary when the adjective is preceded by "well."

  4. Give MS word PDF ability

    Adobe has adopted outrageous pricing and a pricing attitude that virtually
    makes monthly payments similar to buying a car. Adobe has committed business suicide for the average consumer or small business. OK MS-you have seen maps where a mountain water stream has been intercepted by another stream. It's time to go to work on a moneymaker rather than a quick fix. Who will cut of the stream first-MS or Apple...

  5. Product Review

    So I only just got MS Suite, specifically word recently. I've been on Pages the past 10 years or so.
    This said, I already can see I'm going to have feedback on functionality improvements; however cannot spend the time for free.
    As a fresh perspective, if you want me to do a full review, for give cards (though I'm not a PC at this time), payment or other; I'd be happy to offer the service.
    Otherwise I'm sure you'll figure it out in your own way with time.
    I'd also offer to review products in exchange for products.
    Thanks,
    Sarah

  7. My husband has the student version of the word for Mac and he gets prompted for corrections with suggestions, mine doesn't do this

    My husband has the student version of the word for Mac and he gets prompted for corrections with suggestions, mine doesn't do this. I wished the actual full version of the Word for Mac was as effective and efficient as the student version. After all, we pay more to buy the actual version.

  8. Why do I have to tu!rn "Wordiness" off every time I open Word?!?!?!?

    The new grammar check is the most obnoxious thing ever. Please allow us to PERMANENTLY disable "wordiness" in the grammar options. I have to do it every time I open word. Your suggestions are terrible and often change the meaning of what I want to write. There is nothing more obnoxious than getting "corrections" from people who don't know how to write.

  9. Tabloid Newsletter and Brochure Printing (11x17) on Word for Mac 2016

    Microsoft has not resolved an issue with the tabloid (11x17) document where as it will not print correctly or save as a pdf correctly on a Mac. It saves and prints as a cut-off portrait version and never previews or prints in its intended landscape version on a Mac.

  10. Define icons for commands in Quick Access ToolBar

    Many Commands when put into the QAT appear with a generic Circle icon which cannot be customised or changed, making it impossibe (without hovering over each Circle icon) to tell which Circle should perform which command.

  11. Insert Line art objects over photos

    When inserting Line Art objects such as circles or squares over a photo.. it does not allow it, and moves the photo to a different location.
    Line art. such as lines and arrows works fine.. please fix circles, squares, parallaleagrams so we can mark up photos with line art.

  13. Reveal Formatting not working

    The Reveal Formatting command on the VIEW ribbon is not working. I have to go into WORD-PREFERNCES-VIEW if I want to turn on this useful feature. This is a hassle if one wants to do frequent checks.

  16. The "print envelope" function doesn't work. the vertical spacing on the "return address" is a failure. is this the best you can design?

    fix the envelope function. it doesn't work. the vertical spacing of the return address doesn't work. the very first version of word for mac that I used printed envelopes perfectly. then a change was made and the envelope function has never worked since. also fix how you determine which envelope size you are using. who knows about c-1, c5 etc?

  17. Export from word modifies extensions (doc to docc, pdf to pdff, ...)

    Please fix the following bug:
    exporting word files (not tried with excel, probably the same behavior) containing accented chars like "ü", doubles the last extension chars like in the title.
    Thanks in advance

  18. After installing Word Update 14.7.2 my previous documents no longer open

    Installed latest update for word 14.7.2 and now I cannot open my previous documents. Very frustrated, as it happened to me once before. Seems like each update does more trouble than good. Considering of switching to Adobe at this point.
