  1. Multiple documents open in one Window using separate tabs

    Will it ever be possible to have one Word Window with multiple documents open in separate tabs? This is standard across MacOS and is SO helpful on laptops where screen state is minimal.

    Word 16.16.13 creates folders when saving DOCX documents with Mac OS Mojave 10.14.5 on a Synology Nas when the file is edited and resaved. These folders can only be deleted after a restart.

  3. Word countdown

    It would be great if there could be a word tracker tool. As a student writing essays, I would love to be able to enter my word goal and watch my progress - perhaps even with a customisable time goal (e.g. 100 words in 1 hour). I find it easier to watch my word goal decrease, especially when I'm still struggling at the beginning.

  5. Urdu Language

    Add all the features that are available for every other languages, available to choose from in Word, especially for the English language. So, why I don't see this, the Urdu language missing from the Word additional languages list.

  6. Equation editor alt text

    Office should allow alt-text to be added to equations, as with graphics. This would make generating accessible documents much easier for those of us in the STEM education world. Since the capability is already there for graphics, it would be elegant to have the same option natively for equations.

  8. When quitting Excel, Word, or PowerPoint, and then reopening them (or restarting my Mac), none of them will reopen the previously open docum

    When quitting Excel, Word, or PowerPoint, and then reopening them (or restarting my Mac), none of them will reopen the previously open documents. Unchecking the option Close windows when quitting app in the General tab of Mac System Preferences, the Office 2019 for Mac doesn’t reopen the files that are previously opened either. This was never a problem before, but this new feature seriously interrupts my work flow. Please restore the functionality that made it possible for documents to automatically reopen upon restart. I hate trying to remember what I was working on and dig through stored files to reopen…

  10. Edit and customize the toolbar

    I would actually like to have this for both Excel and Word. Have one personalized toolbar where we can have our most used buttons for a quicker interface.

  11. BUG BUG BUG --- Envelope Printing BUG In V16.38

    I just found a bug in the most recent update (v16.38) update for Word. When printing an envelope, it formats for an 8-1/2x11 sheet of paper rather than the envelope, even when you go into page setup and select the envelop. I have two computers. When I noticed the problem on computer #1, I went to computer #2, which was still running 16.37 and confirmed that envelope printing worked perfectly. Then updated to 16.38 and have the same problem on the second computer. I'm running Cataline 10.15.5 on both computers.

  13. Include DOI or URL in Apa 7th citation for Mac

    While Windows has the option to include a DOI or URL at the end of the reference for APA 7th, there is no such option for Mac. Please make this feature available for Mac.

  14. Remove the Page Number Popup from Focus Mode

    When in Focus Mode (in Word for Mac) there is a pop-up box that appears in the bottom half of the screen whenever I scroll, even by a single line, telling me what page I am on.
    As a writer, who constantly scrolls up and down while editing my documents, especially larger ones (every five or ten seconds I am scrolling up or down a few lines or pages, I find this pop box is almost constantly flashing on and off. It’s a huge distraction, really affects my concentration.
    I don’t need a pop-up telling me what page I’m on!!…

  15. Preview Fonts

    Enable previewing fonts as we scroll over them in the drop-down menu. This would benefit formatting, productivity and creativity!

  18. Detect multiple users and open a chat window

    When you are working on a shared document, spreadsheet or presentation and another user starts editing it simultaneously, a chat window should appear / be available so that you can collaborate from within the document / spreadsheet / presentation.
