  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Word and El Capitain

    When selecting "Format" Font, in Word, using El Capitain, the color wheel spins for 15 to 20 seconds before I can make a selection. What is wrong???????? Is anybody trying to fix these problems?

  8. Please fix instabilities that lead to crashes in 10.11.2: saving and opening files from menu

    Crashes happen when I save a document to disk, open a recent document, etc. from File menu or from menu icon. I get a dialogue box that states the disk is full and the operation cannot be completed, and then the application essentially crashes (Force Quit).

  9. 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.

  12. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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).

  17. "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)

  20. 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.
