  2. I can't make new folders on my 13" macbook pro in word

    When I save a word file, the app icons at the bottom of the screen prevent me from making a new folder on my 13" laptop. The only way I can do this now is to go into finder and make a folder first, which is annoying. Please move the button up or make the save as screen smaller.

  3. I'd like to be able to see the name of my document when I have it in full screen mode on my Mac.

    When I have my document in full screen on another desktop, I can't see the name of my document at the top of the window. This is confusing when I have two very similar documents up (a regular and honors version of a test) and need to make sure I'm editing the correct document.

  5. Possible bug in Word for Mac 2011 (Version 14.5.8) with equation alignment at "=" sign

    When I align equations at the "=" sign with version 14.5.8 of Word for Mac 2011 my document appears to get corrupted (OS X 10.10.5). For example, after quitting the document some of the equations disappear and I cannot extend the text beyond the current page. Please fix if this is a bug.

  9. When opening, editing and saving an RTF file need to stop the file size massively increasing

    When I open, edit and save an RTF file in Word for Mac, the file size increases dramatically. Microsoft Word for Windows have a solution for this, I would like Word for Mac to have a solution too.

  10. Word for Mac 2016 - Table Properties “Alignment”

    Word for Mac 2016 - Table Properties dialog is confused, disorganized.

    Alignment settings are scattered between two tabs.
    Disorganized Scatter: tab Cell “Vertical Alignment” to group with “Horizontal Alignment”.

    Alignment naming convention is not consistent in Tables Properties.
    Naming convention: tab Table “Alignment” should be renamed to “Horizontal Alignment”.

    Suggestion: rename tab Table “Alignment” to “Horizontal Alignment”.
    Suggestion: move tab Cell “Vertical Alignment” to tab Table “Vertical Alignment”.
    Suggestion: move tab Table “Text Wrapping” field to tab Cell “Text Wrapping”.
    Suggestion: move tab Table field button “Positioning” to tab Cell under “Text Wrapping”.

  11. Decrease the installation size

    It would be great if the minimum required disk space for installation could be reduced, it seems that office 2011 was much smaller

  12. Show All Revisions Inline BY DEFAULT

    Show All Revisions Inline (or Show Only Comments and Formatting in Balloons) by default (for all documents). It is more convenient for most of users.

  14. PDF hyperlinks in Office

    Ten years later, and we still can't convert a Word document into a PDF that retains live hyperlinks.

    I've paid £120.00 for Microsoft Home & Student 2019, and this bug still hasn't been fixed.

    What a joke.

    Microsoft's Mac coding team should either hang their heads in shame OR RESIGN.

    Here is Adobe's simple drag and drop solution:

  15. Stop adding new features until the Mac version is stable

    In 2021, Word for Mac is still awful - completely unreliable, inconsistent and full of bugs and quirks. The ribbon of options is mostly useless - I don't want to risk using any of the features because they will inevitably lead to a corrupted document. Just stop trying to innovate and instead, focus on the basics of making a reliable word processing application.

  17. Citation manager needs updating/ RefWorks outdoing Word

    Better citation capabilities
    1. APA 7
    2. Ability to enter URL in all citations. eg. in journals we cannot enter the URL from the data base from which we've retrieved the article.
    3. Need to be able to cite directly from article. Presently we have o manually enter references into the citation manager. Refworks is a serious competitor

  18. Caps / Regular text

    One can change regular text to full caps and back to regular text if you started typing in regular text. Why when you start typing in full caps, you cannot change it to regular text ?
