    • English (UK) Grammar Checker amendment required

      In the UK we use something we call self-raising flour when we're baking. In the US I believe you call it self-rising flour.
      I have my Word Language set to English (UK), but the grammar checker insists on telling me that 'raising' needs to me changed to 'rising'.
      I am using Office 365 Home, and specifically Word 16.19 (181109), on a 2017 13" MacBook Pro Touch-bar running Mojave 10.14.1
      Can the UK grammar checker be amended accordingly please?

          • Change Ctrl-click to Cmd-click please

            It is irritating that the standard Cmd-click (see file path) in OSX is replaced by Ctrl-click in Word for Mac. I often need to check which version of a document I am working on, and I have been thinking that this would be impossible in Word, till I stumbled on the un-Mac-like solution.

              • Apple Pencil selection tool

                Recently I was using Word for iOS to markup and select a document. The integration of the Apple pencil is AMAZING for quick notes feedback. But I would love an option to switch the pencil to act as a broad sweeping selection tool. Rather than using the IOS "dots" to drag out a selection area, Word should have the option of allowing the pencil to act as an immediate selection tool. The moment it touches the screen that is the selection start point and then after dragging (and actively selecting an area) it stop selecting on the release of the…

                • Liste déroulante dans Word

                  Je souhaite créer des listes déroulantes avec des pays, villes, dates, etc... Malheureusement, je constate que la nouvelle version sur mac est plus restreinte que l'ancienne. Je ne peux y insérer de date et je ne peux y insérer de liste déroulante comme je le souhaite. C'est frustrant

                      Работая в word 2016 при создании автоматически собираемого списка литературы отсутствует стиль соответствующий ГОСТ 7.1.2003 где квадратные скобки в тексте и т.д. и т. п. без него эта вкладка создания списка литературы просто г-но.

                        • Word Notebook format needs to be reinstated

                          I have been trying very hard to use OneNote but it is really not good. The Word Notebook file format was perfect and I just can't believe it was removed to give us OneNote.

                          • There is a glitch where lines in tables are not visible when editing, but show up again when printing.

                            This glitch makes it very difficult to edit, because there are times that you cannot see where you need to type. Additionally, text sometimes shoes up as a white box when typing/pasting into shaded cells (which also makes it so you cannot see the text and therefore it is difficult to edit). I have talked to other people who are having this same issue.

                              • Native scanning support into Office and other Microsoft web services.

                                It seems Microsoft has yielded the physical to digital document market to Adobe Systems. Why? There is an incredible amount of paper out there to convert to digital format and I don't want to always depend on a PDF conversion just to do word processing, which Microsoft owns the market.I would like to see in Word to simply click Insert > From scanner, then boom, select as an image, an object of an Office product my choice, or editable text. Please don't respond to this post with useless web links or steps to convert from a non-Word document format. Thanks.

                                    When renewing Office 365 University it didn't allow me to renew since it expires in 4 yrs. I had to use my mother's email because I'm a medical student and my degree will take at least 13 years. My documents had to be moved back into the new account. Please make it where I can just renew the Office 365 University without hassles. I do not look forward when it comes to renewing again in the future.

                                        • Cannot hide file extension upon save

                                          Using the most up-to-date version of Word (16.19) on MacOS Mojave. Even when I uncheck the "Show file extensions" checkbox in the General preferences, the resulting saved file always shows its file extension. This same bug existed in Word 15.38 under macOS High Sierra, and then was corrected. The bug has crept back into the program and is quite frustrating.
