  1. Need to describe situaton

    In 12/14/15, as I was preparing to give a talk that evening, composing the document on Office 365 Word, when I tried to save it, it lost the document completely. I called Microsoft, talked with Abhay Kumar Dwived, who saw the problem on my computer, tried a few times to retrieve the document unsuccessfully, then hung up! I called back and again the person hung up. So I tried my best to rewrite the document, tried to print it without saving it for fear I would lose it again and it locked up when I tried to print. I tried…

  2. Restore the "Browse" function to the save window

    As it currently stands, there are limited folder options to which files can be saved. There is no way to save a file to a folder that is not one of the four most commonly used folders. For most folks, this isn't an issue, but it is to me and represents a "Let us help you, but only in our approved fashion" that makes Microsoft a product line I avoid buying whenever there is another viable option.

  4. Get Office 2016 past Beta.

    Just get it working and up to Beta standard. So no translation facility, the edit protected forms doesn't work - had to revert to Office for Windows to edit old forms. Forget all the bugs I have found in Excel. If one has a full time job there are just too many bugs or functions missing to allow one to rely on the Mac version in a business environment. Would not be surprised if this were intended!

  5. I would like fonts to actually change to the new font.

    Last week, my font changed to a typewriter font and has not changed back. I even tried the wingdings font, and the letters still came out in a typeface.

    I have consulted the internet, updated word, updated my OS, restarted my computer, and restarted word. I still get the typewriter font. I would love some help.

  6. 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?

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.
