  1. FIX HUGE MS WORD 365 BUG

    PROBLEM..in Word for Mac 365 if you create a document then from within Word create a folder onto a desktop to save that document there, your entire document/WORD program will LOCK UP. The ONLY way out is to ‘force quit’ and you will lose the entire document you created. This was never the case before and is clearly a BUG. Please fix it!!

  2. Please provide a means of turning off "Welcome back" greeting when opening word in Mac.

    Can those of us who don't want to fiddle with weird and wonderful tekky features just use something in the drop down menu to turn off this incredibly annoying feature??? You're not fooling me, I know Bill Gates could care less if I'm using word.

  5. I think Microsoft Office should feature a vulgarity check on the text entered in order to stop embarrassing and potentially offensive typos.

    It would simply flag commonly vulgar/offensive words in order to make a user aware of them. This would prove useful when proofreading documents as even if your brain automatically corrects the word, because it is flagged with an underline you will take a second look at it. Thereby giving you an opportunity to amend the error.

  8. Address font incompatibility: Garamond, Georgia, etc

    Word 16.35. I bought the Office Package as, forced at home, I was unsatisfied with the editing of Pages. After a couple of weeks, basically overnight, Word turned all the Garamond 12-font documents I opened into a bolded and italicized text, with different margins. According to Word, howwever, there is no change at all in the editing. Here for a preview:

  13. Find Style dialog - resizable

    The Find Style dialog box should be resizable. It is tiny: it displays only 5 styles. A nonresizable dialog this size was OK back in the 1980s when we had 11-inch monitors, but in 2020 it's incredibly frustrating -- because it would be such an easy fix.

  14. Implement Collapsable headings in Word for Mac

    This feature available in Word for Windows is incredibly valuable, especially for long documents. When in Print View, the ability to collapse sections to focus on the desired one is missing on Word for Mac.

  16. In the printing menu the double-sided page feature should appear on the first page when you click print.

    Currently to print double-sided document one must go to the PDF menu and use the Print Preview feature and then use the print menu (under the Print Preview feature) in order to print double sided document. Microsoft owes it to customers to be more intuitive in their Word product.

  17. 'Names' section of the Dictionary

    I have to consistently add names that are unconventional to the dictionary to avoid having Word highlight them as 'incorrect spelling'. There should be a drop-down selection to add it to a list of names that are not flagged as incorrectly spelt, but means it is not wrongly added as a Dictionary word.

  19. Make the "Show text formatting" shortcut using the / key on a num-pad in outline view optional

    When I press the / key on my numpad while in outline view, it enables or disables "Show text formatting", instead of typing "/".

    There is no way to disable this, as apparently it is not a keyboard shortcut, but something called keyboard mapping. I have no clue why anyone would want or need this shortcut without using modifier keys. I just want to type / with my numpad.

    Additionally, I have found that this also happens on Windows.

  20. Add MRHA style referencing!!!

    Please add more reference styles. I know there is APA which is incredibly similar but its super annoying as a uni student required to use MRHA to not have this style readily available!
