  3. NOTES Feature

    I think about this all the time. There should be a feature to take notes in the margins, similar to the Stickies app on MacOS. Maybe there's an option to stick them to a part of the doc, or allow them to move with you as you scroll. This would be HUGE plus to writing functionality.

  4. I think it's very important for Office Word for iPad to add dictation function.

    I think it's very important for Office Word for iPad to add dictation function. iPad Pro has so many users, especially now Apple seems to make laptop replaceable by iPad Pro 2020.

    Dictation function in the latest Office Word is one of the major reasons I use Word in my notebook instead of other Word processing software. But after I downloaded Word to my new iPad Pro 2020, there is no Dictation. I have to change to Google Docs....and caused I changed partially my Mac word processing to Google Docs (because they synchronized)

    I observed the impact is significant 【iPad-->…

  5. more colours

    there should be a more range of colours users can choose from, eg. a dropper tool or a honeycomb colour (where there are different shades or tints of colours,) there should be colour wheel.

  6. I just purchased Word for Home & Students and note that all saved documents retain the tool ribbon at the top. Please fix!!!!

    Allow saving documents in Word for Homes & Students without the tool ribbon being saved along with it. The recipients of my documents are not interested in seeing the tool ribbon still attached, nor did this happen with any of the previous versions of Word I ever used. Documents look ugly with the attached tool ribbon!!!

  8. Make default styles deletable

    Text styles need to be more flexible. The current defaults don't suit all types of documents and making them undeletable makes it hard to get people to use the styles in templates.

  9. Make Word for PC & Mac the same.

    It would appear that an important part of the spelling function in Word 2019 for mac has been disabled. Add to Dictionary not there anymore and suggestions to correct misspelt words not there. Why is that? I'm using downloaded Home/Student version

  11. "Welcome Back" welcome with me - but not working with macOS Catalina

    After upgrading to MacOS Catalina (+reinstalling word), the "welcome back" bookmark, letting me jumpt to where I left off last time, does not work anymore. While some here want to have it removed all along, I would like to have it back. Or at least some option to switch it on (and off) again.

  12. MS Office for linux

    I have a system that would benefit from linux, but i need it to run MS Office. It would be beneficial to have desktop apps for word running on Linux without compatibility layers like wine. This would also mean that i wouldn't have to use LibreOffice in order to work. Such linux integration would be useful. Thanks!

  16. Bug in Word for Mac

    When I use two languages English and Marathi (unicode) for typing, for e.g. Where are you going सुनील? and if I select the whole sentence and make it bold, it will only turn english text Bold, the text in Marathi doesn't change and vice-versa. You need to solve this issue.

  17. "Save As" should show file options alphabetically.

    When I went to save a new file, it showed me recent file locations. But I could not find the folder I was looking for, since I hadn't saved anything to it for months. "Save as" options should include being able to find a folder or location alphabetically. Who remembers when you last opened everything?

  19. Show shortcuts in screentips

    Mac version of Word is not showing shortcuts in screentips by default and I haven't found this functionality in options. I would consider this a very basic functionality that is given out of the box in the Windows version.

  20. Add Building Block Content Control Support

    Most Content Controls are supported in Word for Mac, with the exception of Building Block controls. Word for Mac has AutoText and the Building Block control accepts AutoText as a content type, so there's no evident reason why this doesn't work. Please add support for this.
