  2. More Highlighter Colors

    Need more highlighter colors, especially colors in pastel tones which I prefer, maybe a customizable menu for choosing your own highlight colors like google docs has.

  3. Version 16.48 - Customizable comment sizes?

    Hi! I'm getting used to the new look and feel of the comment boxes and the fact that comments have to be "posted" now. However, I really miss being able to customize the width for comments (in previous versions, comments showed up in the track-changes margin, which can be customized in the Settings > Track Changes, at the bottom), but since the comments have been moved to their own margin, off-the-page, the width setting does not affect them anymore.
    Please add an option to make comment boxes wider so that they can fit more text using less vertical space/height! :)

  4. Blank pages automatically added to documents that cant be removed.....why?

    Did you get my message? I want to send a document without blank pages at the end. I have heard from others that the word program is tricky and they advise going for another program. Apart from this one issue I enjoy using Word and I would like to resolve it.

  5. Tabs for sheets

    I would like to have tabs for sheets like excel.
    Like we have sub topics under one document with different names for each sheet.
    Makes sense?
    I had actually seen something like this in MS-Word few years back.
    But I am not able to find now.

  6. Having a system to change decimal separators (commas vs. dots) automatically

    I often have to translate balance sheets from English into Italian. A number like 4,666.35 is written 4.666,35 in Italian or German. If there was a way to have these decimal separators inverted automatically this would make it much easier for translators like me to translate financial documents, where there are hundreds of numbers.

  7. Stop inserting periods

    I need a preference setting to shut automatic periods after every double space off. This is an annoying behavior and fairly useless. It might be an alright behavior for txting, but for writing, it is simply annoying. Please provide a preference setting to adjust automatic punctuation.

  8. Deactivate the item se

    Deactivate the highlighted items after completing a search and replace and all items have been replaced. When I replace apostrophes or quotation marks because the ones imported are different, they remain highlighted in the text.

  11. Make table cells align uniformly by default

    When it comes to tables, please look at Apple Pages, or Google Docs…or Excel or Wordperfect in the 1990s… or html from the late 1980s… every other piece of software I've ever used works better and is more reliable than Word for Mac tables in 2021!

  12. Allow autocorrect in modern comments

    Modern comments is disrupting the workflow of me and the 600 freelance editors I work with. While the feature is causing many problems for us, the biggest issue is that autocorrect does not work within modern comments. We use this feature to automate our commenting to our customers. As a result, our work takes 20% longer, and we earn 20% less on work. Please update modern comments to allow for autocorrect comments.

    I loved the look and aesthetic of the grey classic theme, the option to personalize should be restored.

  14. NEED DARKER DARK MODE

    I was getting blind when I switched the windows between word documents and other dark mode applications. The dark mode for word only applies the border which is meaningless. I need an entire dark mode.

  15. MAKE A UPDATE BUTTON

    Make an update button for when you and your partner are in the same word dokument. So it refreshes the whole dokument for both partners.

  17. Switch Ribbons button

    I like the "Switch Ribbons" button on the browser version of Office apps as the huge ribbon is rarely needed. I wish that this button was on the desktop Mac apps
