  2. Add a button o shortcut for going back to the starting point after visiting a hyperlink

    Please, add an easy way to return to the starting point after clicking on a cross-reference, element of an index or any reference field with a hyperlink to other part of the same document. It would be very useful and time-saving.

  3. Make it possible to hide part of the document in a similar way as in Excel!

    I frequently want to print or show just parts of the document that I've written and wonder why it doesn't seem to exist a fast and easy "select and hide" - function for doing so?

  5. 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.

  6. 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).

  8. 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...

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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).

  13. 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

  17. Fix "Save as PDF" to network share

    In all previous versions of Word, you can "Save as PDF" the word document to any file system (local or network). Office 365 version of Word (15.13.1) broke that feature. You can only save the pdf version of the file to your local drive. You cannot save the file to any network share.

    As a side note, the "Save as PDF" works fine for both PowerPoint and Excel. I believe the Word developers didn't get the memo and broke this feature.

  18. Integrate with Box

    Can you add integration with Box like on Windows so you can organize and save/open files to and from Box? I think this would be simpler than finding a Box sync folder, and waiting for that to sync with Box online. PC computers have this option embedded in the "File" menu like with OneDrive. Please add this, it helps increase productivity!

  19. Czech language support

    Many customers in Czech Republic would love to see full Czech language support = localized interface and grammar check. Both features are available in Office for Windows.

  20. Do not force people who open a doc that is an email attachment to save it to their drive before editing

    unlike in the past, now when you open an attached word doc from outlook, you have to save the doc before you can edit it. that adds a step that was not previously required. it's great to have that as an option but accd to MS support it is not an option now so it makes using Word more of a hassle than it was in the past
