  3. Allow "Fit" for zoom level

    In Office apps prior to 2016 for Mac, one could type the word "fit" in the zoom box and it would change the document zoom level to fit within the window containing the document. Now you have to CLICK on Page width or Whole page. Please allow more keyboard inputs instead of forcing the user to mouse around more!

  5. Wacom tablet scrolling

    I just bought Office for Mac 2016 (v.15.41) and notice that scrolling with my Wacom Intuos tablet is too slow in the office apps. The screen scrolls a microscopic amount when trying to scroll with the tablet. Scrolling works fine using the Mac's in-built trackpad. My Wacom scrolls any other app on my Mac just fine, so the problem lies with this version of Office. My Mac and Wacom are uptodate. Please fix.

  8. matching text selection directions to the arrow in shortcut in R2L alignment

    Text selection directions in R2L alignment in Word 2016 for Mac are opposite to the arrow in shortcut after changing editing language to Hebrew.
    Directions must be the same as the arrow we press in the shortcut.

  10. It is taking me much longer to type in Japanese with Word for Mac 16.9.

    It is taking me much longer to type in Japanese with Word for Mac 16.9. The problem is that kana seem to be automatically converted to (wrong) kanji without my noticing. I would much prefer that kana not be converted to kanji unless I specifically ask (e.g., use spacebar). It's good to show the options in a box while I am typing, but the conversions shouldn't appear in the actual line I'm typing unless I select the correct conversion. The problem is especially frustrating when I'm typing a non-standard dialect, and Word keeps grabbing irrelevant kanji out of thin air…

  12. Replace Function that Pauses Briefly before Moving to Next Find

    Many times when I replace something, I would like to see the result for about half a second before moving to the next occurrence, just to be sure it’s working properly. The way Word works currently, it takes me to the next occurrence immediately without giving me a chance to see the effect of the replacement.

  14. Bring back the ability to store an address

    Word (2008?) USED to let one store a list of regularly used address.
    WHy remove that feature (along with the so very useful work menu).

  15. Fix compatibility mode.

    When Word is in compatibility mode it constantly crashes. It happens every few minutes so it ends up taking hours to type a document. When it doesn't crash, it just refuses to save my work. Honestly, it's 2017, if you can't figure out how to create a product that actually works, you shouldn't even charge for it. It's ridiculous and I'm frustrated.

  17. New WORD Mac 365 update (15.38) - cannot select non-contiguous text !

    With the new update (15.38) - using the command key to select non-contiguous text is now disabled .! This is VERY frustrating .. after speaking to the support line - I have been told that "the developers are working on it" and I can only re-install the OLD update ... A very BIG hassle as all preferences and defaults get wiped .. anyone who is doing lots of Word processing will get very upset with this disabled feature

  18. Nothing was feeding back when KaiTi(楷体) font selected

    After installing the latest update vision for Word 16.9(180109), something goes wrong with fonts and character display. I often use regular script for Chinese character which also named KaiTi(楷体) for academic needs. The previous vision was quite qualified for that work. But now there's something wrong with KaiTi character's display in this vision. When I want to use "KaiTi" character in my document and select it , nothing was feeding back at all on the screen, but the Chinese character which use KaiTi type in my previous documents can demonstrate normally. I would love some help from you.

  19. Word needs to be as snappy and fast and fluid, as my thoughts are

    I am having a huge problem with Word on my Mac. I own a decent Macbook Pro and am not running any other software in the background besides iTunes.
    The problem is responsiveness and reaction speed. I feel like Word has never been more sluggish and slow to respond to my keyboard presses. I am a fast typer and I reedit my entries on the fly. And it bothers me tremendously that Word just can't keep up with me! I am forced to "slow down" my thoughts in order to give Word enough time to process it all. And I…
