  1. Possibly an issue caused by the update to Big Sur that an Office update hasn't been able to remedy yet

    Since I upgraded Mac OS to the latest Big Sur (on both my iMac and Macbook), I started having issues with services such as “Speak Chinese” ("There was a problem with the input to the Service” message pops up ) and “Convert text to simplified/traditional Chinese” (no response).
    These shortcuts work fine in other apps but not in Word.

  2. Having more writing templates

    I would love to see more writing templates that focus on the genres that a college or university class would give like Narrative, Expository, Persuasive, Descriptive, etc....that would have written prompts all along the way to help me know what to write for that particular genre of writing.

  9. Allow commenting on footnotes.

    Currently the biggest issue editors have with Word: you can't comment on footnotes! The only way to do this is to insert text (in parentheses/different color/etc) which can potentially introduce errors, or to add a comment on to the footnote number in the text, which makes for some difficult navigating for the author. Please give us the ability to comment on footnotes!

  10. An ability to customise the toolkit

    I know I dont use many of the functions in the Home header/ toolkit - predominantly I use bullet points and numbering when making my masters notes. An ability to make the toolkit personalised to how you use Word would be helpful and save a lot of agro. Especially when I have to reduce application so I can look at other applications/ pdfs on the same screen at the same time, it makes trying to access the bullet point button a pain!

  12. Custom not getting added to Wordpress Now

    have solved it, 3 things were overlapping hence the confusion: The list of custom providers printed by wp-click seems not to print custom added providers, so it was confusing my debugging As some pointed out it the comments, my regex was not properly written (thanks) I had an extra / at the end of my test url, which was making the embed provider crash, and the error returned by WordPress was 'oembedinvalidurl', I didn't see it

  14. On phone with Microsoft support for 1 1/2 hours trying to resolve a problem with printing a booklet using Word on a Mac. No help.

    Why can't Mac users create and print a Booklet using Word as easy as PC users? Our church uses Word to create booklet bulletins each Sunday and I can't print them from a Mac, I have to borrow the church PC to print bulletins each Sunday. Why can't this be resolved by Microsoft?

  15. Highlight again previously selected search hit on left Word pane after clicking inside the document and editing it

    Highlight again previously selected search hit on left Word pane after clicking inside the document and editing it.

    After
    Shift Command H
    to search

    Word shows a left pane with hits. That is great. But if you have many hits and select one of them and then you click in the text showing such hit and edit it, then the left pane shows no hits. If you click the Find button on such left pane, the hits show again, but the latest selected one is no longer highlighted.

    This is a significant productivity issue when you want to go through…

  16. Find and Replace in does not work above around 30,000 pages

    I just spent about an hour with Microsoft Support ... with the outcome being that a document of 31,000 words does not LIST all the instances of a search. It only lists one at a time. A 25,000 word document does successfully list all instances. I WISH I HAD KNOWN THIS.

  18. have the paragraph you're working on always stay at top half of screen

    a way to customize the format so that the area that you're typing stays in a certain range of the document. in other words, i hate that as i'm typing a document whatever i'm writing will ALWAYS be at the bottom of the document, even though it would be way easier for me if it was in the middle or top part of the screen. i would like to be able to choose to write exclusively in the top half of my screen -- it's way better for my neck

  19. HELP! Print box layout graphic error persists and getting worse also in release 16.51!

    Hi, also in release 16.51 persists the graphic error in default print box layout: now the text should be “Black & White” (also in Italian release?!) but you can see only “Black & W” (indeed W is cut). If is a space problem, write “B&W” or better, for Italian release, “B/N”!
    Solve it, please!!!
    Thank you

    Best regards

    Pierpaolo
