  4. Fix needed: Document Map in Navigation pane broken with tracked changes

    I think this bug also exists in the windows version.
    I have the document map constantly open when using Microsoft Word (except for 1 page letters etc - but nowadays I only write these once a year). But when using track changes function (Word is one of the best tools for shared working on documents), this is full of mistakes. Very annoying.

  5. Pinch out to zoom does not stick

    In Word, pinching out with a trackpad is a great, and much appreciated, way to zoom a document. Unfortunately, it does not stick; within seconds, it shrinks down beyond the original magnification. This is a bug and needs to be fixed.It makes a very good advantage of Word 2016 into a major problem.

  7. I am using Word 2011 on my Mac and would like to address my concern on the non-printable texts that is shown in the document.

    Is there a way to hide the non-printable marks in such a way that not all of it would be hidden? I want to edit a file that has non-printable marks but not on all parts of the file. I can do it manually by copying and pasting it but hopefully there is a way(or a button to be specific) to shorten things up. [Glenn: Well said! Thx for writing up my question so clearly! Hank]

  8. Fix line endings and other quirks in saving to filtered HTML

    Currently, HTML files are saved with Windows line endings (CRLF). They should be saved with Unix/MacOS X line endings (LF), as they did in previous Word versions.

    Also, when saving to HTML, Word improperly adds an .fld extension to any related folder. Folder extensions are not standard on the Mac. Again, this error appeared only with Word 2016.

    Also, Word 2011 and 2016 both export HTML with incorrect image dimensions. Word adds two pixels to both the width and the height in the image tag, even when the picture has no border in Word.

    Finally, Word's filtered HTML does not…

  9. Word for Mac Opening New Document from Template

    Ever since the latest download, every time I try to open a new doc from my templates, the window pops up for a second, then it disappears and nothing happens. The cursor just kind of glitches until I quit word. Can that be fixed ASAP please?

  10. Fix Needed: Word for Mac save dialogue

    When saving in Mac, the save dialogue takes the top half of the window and moves it off screen. It makes it impossible to move the window because the top half of the screen has disappeared.

  11. Bookman font is not working.

    All text in Bookman prints out as empty boxes like [] [] [] [] [] .
    Bookman italics for qwerty shows on screen as oucprws.

    Bookman has been our default font on all our Macs for at least ten years. Having to change font changes the layout of many documents.

  12. Pull a Page for Editing while scrolling through a whole file.

    Sometimes while working on a multipage document I want to work on page while having to make references to other sections or looking back through the document to verify information, formatting choices, phrasing, etc. On a multi-monitor system, it would be nice to "grab" a page, pull it off to the side, and then continue editing the page while still scrolling through the larger document to find my various pieces of information.

    This would be akin to working with a paper document where you pull a sheet out for editing / fact checking in a large document. Only with a…

  14. "Create new document"-option when secondary clicking on Word icon in dock

    Instead of just having the options of "Open Recent" and "Options" could you please introduce a "Create New Document" option when secondary clicking/2-finger-clicking/right clicking on the Word icon in the dock?

Error reports were always sent back to microsoft, but it still existed after many updates.

  19. Display Accessibility for Word for Mac 2008

    The Display Accessibility Preferences for Word for Mac 2008 need to be adjusted. Unfortunately, the current Default setting is the largest visual display option to allow you to view the "Save" button when Saving a Word document. For most people over 40 years of age, the Default setting text size is way too small, and causes severe eye strain after only a few minutes working with Word. Please adjust your SAVE/Cancel buttons to be viewable even in the "Largest" scaled choice. That way the SAVE/CANCEL buttons will be viewable in ALL Scaled views, not just the small to smallest text…

  20. please stop sending me daily notices about updates available. New updates are too disruptive of my work, so I don't want any of them.

    please stop sending me daily notices about updates. updates are too disruptive of my work, so I don't want ANY of them. I can't figure out how to tell you to stop sending them, as you only offer choices about when to send the update. my answer is, NEVER, and i suggest you offer that as an option when you nag and nag about updating.
