  1. Allow us to keep the Thumbnail Panel open when viewing Footnotes

    Not sure why the Thumbnails disappear when viewing Footnotes/Endnotes—why can't we have both? At the very least, if Thumbnails are showing before viewing Footnotes, after closing the Footnotes, return the Thumbnails.

  2. Unable to do Save As to OneDrive Folder and Local Directory At the Same Time

    I notice that it is necessary to do two save as functions of a Word document if I want to have a current copy both in my OneDrive folder and local directory or drive on my Mac. At the moment I have do a save as of a document to my OneDrive folder then do a second save as of the same document to a local directory or drive.

    Important suggestion is for the developers to urgently consider writing an option of allowing the saving of files into the two locations at the same time, without having to so in…

  4. It used to be fairly easy to retrieve Temporary Files with Word; why has this feature disappeared?

    I receive documents as attachments through Outlook, and they appear in Word in the Outlook/Temporary Items folder until I save them elsewhere. I would like to be able to reach the Temporary Items folder in case I don't have time to save them elsewhere, which I was able to do until recently. Making that feature unaccessible is certainly not an improvement to your software. Could you please re-establish access to the TemporaryFiles folder from Word?

  6. Office 2011で、command+f1やウィンドウの拡大・縮小ボタンが動作しない。

    OS X El Capitan
    Office 2011 for Macで、command+F1などの一部のショートカットキーや、緑色の「ウィンドウの拡大/縮小」ボタンが動作しない。修正してほしい。

    Office 2011は、本来なら2016年の1月で全てのサポートが終了するはずだったが、直後にメインストリームサポートが延長された。延長サポートではなく、メインストリームサポートがだ。これは、すでにoffice 2016が登場していることを考えると、異例なことだと思う。

  7. Please: non longer saving Normal.dotm!

    When I use Word (Mac 2011) it demands me to save a 'Normal.dotm'-file. I don't know what's the sence of this file, but it is gets on my nerves. When I click 'save' the same returns again and again. When I click 'break off', then returns the message: "Die durchgeführten Änderungen haben Auswirkuingen auf die Dokumentvorlage Normal. Möchte Sie diese Änderungen speichern?" and the only way to stop this terrible game is to click on "Nicht speichern". This happens allthought when I close an empty document, where I didn't typed any letter.
    This is so boring that I shoot down…

  9. Word keeps crashing while I'm using it--I'm using 2011 v. 14.6.1, which I just installed but it was crashing prior to that.

    Please fix it. I'm a grant writer and can't keep recreating my work if it hasn't yet been saved.

  11. Display deleted and inserted text within the same Word file.

    It would be extremely helpful if deleted and inserted text can be displayed in the same Word file using the reviewing panel. Currently you can either see deleted text or inserted text. The ability to see exactly what has been edited by others, helps tremendously in improving writing skills.

  14. Please add the remove white space or hide margins feature to the Mac version of Word like that which exists in the Windows version.

    I used it for years in the Windows version. Very disappointing not to have it in Mac version.

  15. Please remove the 'nag' update ribbon!

    I am an Office 2011/365 user and recently updated to Office 2016.
    I found it to be totally horrible & a hindrance to my work-flow.
    Some tasks I was in-fact not even able to complete in the 'new & improved' version as standard features from 2011 have been removed.
    Needless to say I went back to 2011.
    Now, every time I open an app in the suite, I have to dismiss the seriously annoying yellow ribbon that is telling me to upgrade.
    PLEASE remove this annoyance from the next update as it just serves as a daily reminder of how…

  18. Complex script font support as of Windows version

    Word for mac doesn't come with complex script font selection dialog as of Windows version. When will Microsoft update the font selection dialog to be consistent with Windows version?

  20. Latvian spelling bugs

    Some words in the Latvian spell-checker are wrong and need to be replaced with correct forms. For the start, here is a short list (sources: Latviešu valodas pareizrakstības un pareizrunas vārdnīca, LLVV, LPE, Svešvārdu vārdnīca):
    tādejādi -> tādējādi
    priviliģēts -> privileģēts
    intraverts -> introverts
    ekumēnisks -> ekumenisks
    Sokrāts -> Sokrats
    Hipokrāts -> Hipokrats
    nomaldas -> nomaldās
