    • Office 365 for MacOS does not save PDF files larger than 40MB from within Word

      If you want to export under "Save as" the Word document in compliance with all links and formatting and the original file is larger than 40MB then Word reports that this is not possible because the file is larger than 40MB.
      This has been found on 3 Macbooks so that an user error can be excluded.
      On a Windows 10 Office Word version everything works without any problem, regardless of the size.
      Why isn't this working with the MAC Version of Word? And for all who now propose me to use the -> Print as "PDF"
      I would like to…

        • Macro field missing an icon

          When writing macros, I only get the keyboard pictograph. The icon with the hammer that lets you assign keystroke combinations (such as function keys) is totally missing.

          • Need larger Name field

            Let me see document name. The area allotted for the name of a Word document is so small, that if I have multiple word docs open at the same time it is difficult to see their names

              • Die Rechtschreibhilfe korrigiert falsch.

                Nach einer Klammer steht im Deutschen ein Leerzeichen. Word schlägt als "Korrektur" vor, das Leerzeichen zu entfernen. Das ist falsch.

                    • Keyboard shortcut for applying a style

                      In Word 2011, I could press a keyboard shortcut to jump to the Style field in the formatting pane, then type the name of the style I want to apply. I cannot find a way to do this now.

                      I need to apply paragraph and character styles quickly, by keeping my hands on the keyboard. I don't want to have to use the mouse/trackpad to click in the Styles panel.

                      Possible?

                      • What happened to the back-space functions?

                        Før når jeg brukte bullet-points og brukte back-space så fjernet bullet-points seg og man kunne skrive vanlig. Nå må man manuelt trykke "av" bullet points, noe som jeg syns er tungvint. Det samme gjelder å flytte setning/avsnitt til venstre, hvor det før gikk å bruke backspace mens man nå må manuelt bruke "avsnitt-"knappen for flytting.

                        • Restore FIM-A and Delivery Point Bar Postal codes to Envelope Interface!

                          Why has MS deleted the buttons in Word in the envelope interface for FIM-A and delivery point barcode—seems illogical?I have been using Word ever since the first editions came out some thirty or so years ago and am frustrated by the lack of this tool in the current 2019 Home & Student version. In the 2008 version of Word the postal codes were still in place.The postal codes were dropped out in the 2019 Mac Home & Student version—why? Also, the current envelope tool interface is small relative to the font list making it difficult to scroll through the font…

                                • fix the whole issue of documents w images that do not print

                                  i have been using word for as long as i can remember, and though a mac user, have not migrated to pages. HOWEVER, this whole issue of images not printing even when they show up in the preview OR even after pdf-ing the document is exasperating to the say the least!!!

                                  Click the "Options" button at the bottom of the "Print" dialog box. The "Word Options" dialog box opens with the "Display" tab selected in the left pane.

                                  Scroll to the "Printing options" section.

                                  Check "Print drawings created in Word."

                                  Check "Print background colors and images" and click "OK."

                                  all…

                                  • Open Word 2016 for Mac Dos in Same View and screen position as last opened

                                    Please, is it possible to restore the function in Woor 2016 for Mac that enabled documents to be opened with the same view and screen position as last opened. I have several documents open at once, and there is a process of continuing edting. THerefore the absence of this feature in the new version is VERY disappointing , to say the least.
                                    Kind regards
                                    Jim

                                    • Overriding default indentation on roman numerals.

                                      I am unable to override the default indentation setting for lowercase roman numerals in a numbered list. The lowercase roman numeral has an increased indent that is larger than all other numerals/letters/symbols in the numbered list category. It makes outlines look wonky and is inefficient for space. Please fix this!

                                      • keep strikethrough feature while showing balloons for comments

                                        Under Tracking, when showing comments in the right sidebar, we can no longer use strikethrough to show deletions. The deletions disappear. This should not be either comments or strikethroughs; an editor needs both.
