  1. Toolbar deterioration in Word for Mac 2011

    Since one of the latest updates, the toolbar is dysfunctional in a very annoying way. It does not appear at all at opening. I found gradually that I have to click first on "Ansicht/Symbolleisten/Format", do this twice, then a grey blank bar appears with an upward arrow, on which I have to click in order for the toolbar to appear.
    By the way, how come I get an English help forum when I have a German Word version?

  4. Automatically show/wide the Ribbon

    For laptops where the amount of screen real estate is small, the ability to automatically show and hide the Ribbon would be very useful. I think this option exists in Office for the PC.

  6. How do you open a file which is 32mb in size? The file of photos just clammed up and cannot be accessed. Not good.

    How do you open a file which is 32mb in size. The file of photos just clammed up and would not give me access because it was 32mb. No warning just seized up and I cannot access it. Not good to lose an immense amount of work.

  7. Favorite Font List

    as a Answers Moderator I read all new questions. A Question came up from Word 2016 User. About a Favorite Font list. Evidently The PC version generates and keeps a List of favorite Fonts used so you don't have to relook up fonts each time you save/close/and reopen a Document you must work, over a period of time. current Office Mac does place temporarily in the font list generated by Font Button on home tab of ribbon while using document. But this disappears when you close the document.

    I propose: That this temporary list be made permanently available for each…

  8. Check translations in Swedish Words math editor.

    Integral is the same in Swedish. It is now translated "heltal" (integer).
    "Gräns/logg" should be "Gräns/log" The log stands logarithm. "Hakparentes" should just be "parentes" as it contains different kind of parentheses, not just square brackets.
    Tried to contact Swedish MS but was redirected here.

  9. Word fills in wrong date (one day behind) as of last update.

    Your last update to Word reverted back to auto-filling the wrong date as it had done two updates ago. Please fix it.

  10. I can't make new folders on my 13" macbook pro in word

    When I save a word file, the app icons at the bottom of the screen prevent me from making a new folder on my 13" laptop. The only way I can do this now is to go into finder and make a folder first, which is annoying. Please move the button up or make the save as screen smaller.

  11. I'd like to be able to see the name of my document when I have it in full screen mode on my Mac.

    When I have my document in full screen on another desktop, I can't see the name of my document at the top of the window. This is confusing when I have two very similar documents up (a regular and honors version of a test) and need to make sure I'm editing the correct document.

  13. Possible bug in Word for Mac 2011 (Version 14.5.8) with equation alignment at "=" sign

    When I align equations at the "=" sign with version 14.5.8 of Word for Mac 2011 my document appears to get corrupted (OS X 10.10.5). For example, after quitting the document some of the equations disappear and I cannot extend the text beyond the current page. Please fix if this is a bug.

  17. When opening, editing and saving an RTF file need to stop the file size massively increasing

    When I open, edit and save an RTF file in Word for Mac, the file size increases dramatically. Microsoft Word for Windows have a solution for this, I would like Word for Mac to have a solution too.

  18. Word for Mac 2016 - Table Properties “Alignment”

    Word for Mac 2016 - Table Properties dialog is confused, disorganized.

    Alignment settings are scattered between two tabs.
    Disorganized Scatter: tab Cell “Vertical Alignment” to group with “Horizontal Alignment”.

    Alignment naming convention is not consistent in Tables Properties.
    Naming convention: tab Table “Alignment” should be renamed to “Horizontal Alignment”.

    Suggestion: rename tab Table “Alignment” to “Horizontal Alignment”.
    Suggestion: move tab Cell “Vertical Alignment” to tab Table “Vertical Alignment”.
    Suggestion: move tab Table “Text Wrapping” field to tab Cell “Text Wrapping”.
    Suggestion: move tab Table field button “Positioning” to tab Cell under “Text Wrapping”.

  19. Decrease the installation size

    It would be great if the minimum required disk space for installation could be reduced, it seems that office 2011 was much smaller

  20. Show All Revisions Inline BY DEFAULT

    Show All Revisions Inline (or Show Only Comments and Formatting in Balloons) by default (for all documents). It is more convenient for most of users.
