  1. set spellcheck in multiple languages

    Many of us create multilingual documents. It would be excellent if I could set two or more languages as my proofing languages, so I'm not stuck with a document that's half in another language and therefore half red-underlined. Google Chrome can do it; Microsoft Office should be able to, too.

  4. HIGHLIGHT CHOICE

    AH WHAT CAN I SAY, I LOVE WORD BUT WHAT REALLY KILLS ME IS THAT THE HIGHLIGHT COLOUR OPTION IS EXTREMELY LIMITED WHICH MAKES GOOGLE DOCS A BETTER OPTION BY A LITTLE BIT. THE COLOURS IN WORD ARE VERY VIBRANT AND DONT MATCH MY ASTHETIC. (NOT BEING PICKY BUT VARUETY IS GREAT) 👍🏻 OTHER THAN THAT I USE WORD EVERDAY FOR SCHOOL

  6. Figure caption numbering with chapter

    Now in Word for Mac, when I defined my heading style and linked with multilevel list, I can't number my figures included chapter number using user-defined styles. The options provided me are "Heading 1", "Heading 2", etc. While my style named as "My Heading 1", it is not listed when I create a new label.

  10. Spelling and Grammar in Word 2019 (Build 16.48)

    Option for spelling and grammar is greyed out. Thesaurus is also not available on this build. It only worked when we downgrade the build to 16.40. Please keep us posted once a fix is released. Thanks.

  13. Use system-wide MacOS/iOS text replacements also in Microsoft Apps

    Right now, the text replacements defined in the keyboard settings don't work in MS apps on the Mac.

    Please change that asap, it's very tedious having to re-define them for MS!

  15. Put "small caps" option within easy reach in the Home Button ribbon.

    The only way to toggle small caps should NOT be under the Font Pane in Word 365 when there is a much more accessible and sensible location..... as it was in past iterations of Microsoft Word. Put it under the CHANGE CASE options, A) because it belongs with them, and B) because it is used with far more frequency than the other options in that category!

  20. Remove spacing shortcut

    On line spacing option, please have a "removing spacing option" rather than clicking line spacing options --> and then selecting before and after spacing to 0.
