  1. Word题注中多级编号增加“正规形式编号”功能

    Word 中,若一级标题采用中文编号 “一、二、三”,则在题注中包含章节号时,题注样式会变成 “一-1” “一-2”这样。

    而在自定义多级符号列表功能中,可以通过设置 “正规形式编号”实现“1.1”、“1.2”,避免上述情况的发生。

    请在题注中,增加实现“正规形式编号”的功能。

  2. Different Last Page Option in Headers and Footers

    A lot of the company documents I create require different header and footer information and manually adding this to working documents, where pages are regularly added and removed, takes up too much time (this also includes images so IF commands don't cut it).

    Having a "Different Last Page" tick box in the Header & Footer section the same way we have the "Different First Page" would be incredibly helpful.

  4. Don't use Command+D as the "don't save" shortcut key in the save dialog box

    In most mac applications, if you want to save to the desktop, you can press Command+D and it will shift the current directory in the save dialog to the desktop. When you've worked on a word document, but haven't saved yet, then close the document, it pulls up a save dialog. Pressing Command+D basically erases all your work, and leaves a mac user confused as to what happened.

  5. Have the option to not show "Styles" in the "Home" tab of the ribbon

    It would be great to be able to have the option not to show "Styles" (i.e., Normal, Heading 1, etc.) in the "Home" tab of the ribbon at the top of the document. At the moment, the Home tab shows Clipboard, Font, Paragraph, Styles, and Sensitivity. The "Styles," however use up the entire left-hand side of the ribbon, so if someone doesn't use them they just create clutter. Could you make a checkbox in the Preferences for the ribbon to turn this on/off?

  6. Increase the file size limit for exporting to electronic PDF in Word.

    Currently, it seems the latest version of Word supports a maximum file size of 40MB when exporting electronic PDFs. This appears to be an arbitrary limitation, as the error message states: "This version of Word can't be exported to this type of file because the file is too large. Generally, a file that is larger than 40 MB is too big to export".

    I don't remember this being an issue before PDF conversion went to the cloud. It would be extremely helpful to be able to convert big files — I'm currently having issues with finalising my mixed-media PhD thesis.

  7. Office 365 word white text on dark page background

    Setting dark page background with white text the mouse pointer becomes invisible when moving through the text. This issue is limited to the Office suit only, Powerpoint included, as other Mac word applications (pages, scrivener) work as intended. To my knowledge the problem does NOT exist in Office 365 on Windows. I talked with a MS technician (case number 1492020518) and she confirmed this may be due to a feature limitation in the Office suite. Please, fix the problem ASAP, it is shameful that features available on the windows platforms are not available in the Mac counterpart. Personally I will…

  9. True dark mode for menu bar and background

    Although word supports dark mode, it isn't a true dark mode (#000000), the addition of such would allow devices with an OLED panel to display and even have a more comforting view for all devices

  11. Speed-up Office launch time

    Please consider to accelerate Office Mac launch speed. Currently Word bounces five times, Excel five times and PowerPoint four times.

  13. Microsoft account picture for office for mac

    I have no way of seeing my picture in any office for Mac 2019 application. It shows in Skype but in any office applications it does not show up under account and I only see my initials. Is there a fix or update coming to solve this.

  15. Word for Mac Default Opening Format

    Every New Document I open in Word opens in a format whose margins far exceed the page I'm working on. Thus I mush manually shrink the useless open space to each side of the working Word page every time I open a document and it is tiring. Allow users to have a standard size document they work with and set that size as the default size for all new documents. Support for Word for Mac told me today that no such command exists now, but it should. Thanks.

  16. BUG: numbered lists replaced by black boxes

    I've encountered this bug many times and found "solutions" online, but they never seem to stick. When I save, close, and re-open the document, the black boxes are there again. It seems to happen most when going from a Word doc to Google doc, then back to Word.

  17. Filter tracked changes by category (Formatted, Deleted, etc.)

    As a user that reviews documents that go through many revisions between multiple hands, I would like to be able to filter tracked changes by category (Formatted, Deleted words, added words, etc.) so that i can more efficiently review content changes and not have it visually cipher through formatting changes as well.

  18. Microsoft's grammar suggestions are WRONG.

    Microsoft's grammar suggestions are truly way off. Work on it. I'm writing a novel. The line is: "I drink in their stares and glances." The suggestion is to change "stares" to "stairs." Drink stairs?! Even if creative writing doesn't compute in Microsoft's grammar world, how can this ever pass as a useful suggestion?

  20. Añadir soporte para LaTex en Word para Mac. O al menos debería haber atajos de teclado para determinados formatos de ecuaciones.

    Los códigos de teclado no funcionan o no se encuentran para escribir ecuaciones con formatos complejos.
    Si no añaden el soporte para LaTex en Mac, al menos esta posibilidad debería estar disponible.
    Gracias
