  1. Return context menus in tables to show "distribute columns evenly"

    A very recent update to Word 2016 removed the right click context menu in tables and removed the distribute columns evenly. Please restore it at your earliest convenience.

  4. Make this box large enough so that people can write in it!

    Can't say what I want to say as like so many other places - it only allows a certain amount of letters. Make the boxes bigger!

  7. Nothing but problems since the past few updates in 2011

    Now when I try to open an Office file I keep getting a window asking if I want to do updates and if I want to send feedback. I check the booked then it asked my names and initials. Then I get a request for what kind of file I want to create. Forget the file I clicked on to open, nothing happened, 2 minutes gone need to click on it again. Save it but gee... nothing happens so the next time I go into an MS Office app, you guessed it have to go through the same procedure again.

  8. Copying words from the web into Word for Mac

    Something's happened recently and I don't know why:
    When I copy text from the web, something happens when I paste it in the word-file I'm working with: When I push the format-button, more og less of what I've written disappears!! And I cannot push the arrow-regret-button, because then I can lose even more of my own text. If this doesn't get fixed, I feel I have to go back to the Microsoft & computer system I had before I decided to try Mac. There I can regret every thing I've done, and never lose a thing. (I hope I've made…

  9. Make the "switch windows" shortcut easier and more obvious

    I know from of old that to switch between programs on my screen(s) I toggle with [cmd] (Command/Apple/loopy square/propeller) and [tab] keys.

    Up to now I've been manually switching between open file windows in Word by clicking on the Window menu and selecting the file I wanted, but I always felt there ought to be a way of doing so by keyboard shortcut like toggling between programs.

    I have now found this, buried deep in the "Keyboard shortcuts" section of the Help menu ([cmd] + [F6], and on my MacBook Pro I have to use the [fn] key as well).

  10. "Scale" on Copies and Pages dialog

    Restore "Scale" box to the printer Copies and Pages dialog (so one doesn't need to go to page setup to change % scale)

  11. Double-click on title bar does not work as other Mac applications

    In the settings (Dock) you can control the behavior of double click on title bar of window.
    However for the Office 2016 applications this setting is disregarded - double-click always minimizes.

  14. Latest update for Microsoft Office

    Posted Dec 14, 2015

    After installing the latest update for Microsoft Office, Word started having problems with fonts and table of contents. Now, I don't have a normal standard Times New Roman it displays it as italic font. It greatly disrupted my documents during finals, it is unacceptable that I have to redo work and from now on wait to install updates after important work has been submitted.

  15. speller

    I am noticing that more and more often MAC word Speller is not picking up or autocorrecting basic spellign mistakes where no other word/option available ie; ahs, (has) and other very basic errors that it does not 'correct' this is pretty frustrating. I woudl have thought speller had greater capacity to pick up errors where no other 'word' possible from configuration of letters. I think it was functioning better when i first got program, but now seems to have become less accurate and less responsive. why might this be the case and can it be upgraded? thanks

  16. Auto-complete date in Word for Mac 2011 should use computer's date

    I use Word daily and need to include today's date, which only updates when I close the application since the date auto-complete function is set to use the application launch date.

  18. In PowerPoint and Excel uservoice forum Microsoft Team answers user's demands, not here.

    Do you really read our messages and take into account our demand and productivity needs? I doubt. A complete lack of respect of the Word Mac team

  19. Stop forcing me to validate my VALID licence! I have to constantly restart and I only upgraded to the latest version yesterday.

    Stop forcing me to validate my VALID licence! I have to constantly restart and I only upgraded to the latest version yesterday. This is a horrible UX and I've just wasted another 10 minutes restarting my machine in front of people. Just rubbish. Don't you test your products before you release them for mass download? This happens for Outlook as well I am constantly having to validate my file, or can only use it for free, until I restart! Infuriating guys!
