    • Keyboard shortcut for applying a style

      In Word 2011, I could press a keyboard shortcut to jump to the Style field in the formatting pane, then type the name of the style I want to apply. I cannot find a way to do this now.

      I need to apply paragraph and character styles quickly, by keeping my hands on the keyboard. I don't want to have to use the mouse/trackpad to click in the Styles panel.

      Possible?

        • Sticky notes that attach to a Word document and can be

          Users could highlight an area on a document (word, phrase, section, etc.) and attach a "sticky note" that hovers on the document and can give further information. I realize you can do something like this with the "Insert/Comment" feature, but rather than have them off to the side, they notes could be right above the pertinent section. Sort of similar to the comment form in Adobe Acrobat. But as a writer, having notes right at a particular section is visibly and informationally useful.

            • Feature Request: Ability to set Language in Table Style

              Once a Table Style has been assigned a languge, it is impossible to remove or change it.
              This is clearly illusteated in this post https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/ms-word-how-to-set-the-language-for-a-table-style/71f83070-fea5-4929-be73-df71269d4eba

              Since it is SOMEHOW possible to set the language for a Table Style, it is only fair that we should be allowed to edit it.

              • Word 2016 without hyphenation module for Greek?

                I have Office 365 Home installed (Word 16.19 (181109)) on a MacBook 12 (version 10.1) with Mac OS/X Mojave.
                Main language is English with 2 keyboards installed: French and Greek. (Because the laptop was purchased in France so the keyboard layout is azerty.)
                My documents is .docx and .doc with main text in Greek but also in other languages as English, Italian, German, French e.c.c mainly in Windows Word versions.
                I never had hyphenation issues. (I always used hyphenation.) But in the above Word for Mac version I get this error message and the hyphenation is not working.

                • Track Changes not working properly in Word 2016 for Mac

                  We are experiencing an issue with this Track Changes feature that results in the potential for our customers to receive a report without charts that were modified during production. When someone accepts a change to a chart in Word, the change will appear correctly to the person accepting the change, but once the report is saved and sent to the next person, the change is not made, or a chart is completely missing. This only appears to be an issue with these Excel-pasted charts, not with plain text.

                  • Document-linked navigation pane preferences

                    I am currently working on a +70,000 word document, in addition to multiple smaller documents. I need the navigation pane open at all times on the larger document, but not on any of the smaller documents. However, the navigation pane settings (or whether it appears or not) are linked to Word as a program, not each document. So, if I am working on the large document with the pane open, then open a small document, the pane appears on that document too. If I am working on a smaller document without the pane, the next time I open the large…

                      • Fully support professional third-party fonts.

                        I have professional third-party fonts that I spent a lot of money on that Word won't let me use. Some simply don't show up even if active, others show up but can't be selected. According to Microsoft, "Third-party fonts are not directly supported in Microsoft Office for Mac applications." This is absolutely outrageous. How can you possibly expect serious users to use Office if third-party professional fonts aren't even supported??

                        • Allow filtering of search results in UserVoice so Mac users can limit search results to just Word for Mac.

                          This suggestion box would be much better if users could filter search results by platform (e.g., Mac, Android, etc.).

Varför är det inte "tillåtet" i iPhone att väja vilken molntjänst som helst varför har ni en fast bindning till just Onedrive? Jag vill själv ha möjlighet att välja var jag vill att filen lagras.. vissa vill säkert ha er lösning one drive medan andra (jag) fördrar att ha alla dokument samlade på ett annat ställe.....ni krånglar till det för oss användare i onödan......
